I took Wednesday through the Monday-after-Easter off of work to focus more on Holy Week. I am so glad I did! It was exhausting… and beautiful! I think that each evening’s service was more beautiful than the one before! The only thing that I didn’t get to go to was the Tenebrae service, which is a shame. I always loved that service in the Lutheran church. But it was held after evening Mass, and the kids were – horrid – ! I found out later that the service lasted an hour and a half. It’s a good thing I didn’t force them to stay. I don’t think that would have gone over too well. But as the days went on, I think that the kids began to enjoy it more and become a bit more well-behaved. It ended up being a very nice Paschal celebration!
