Sacred Paschal Triduum

Tomorrow, Passion Sunday (more popularly known as Palm Sunday) signals the start of our observance of Holy Week, certainly the busiest week in the entire liturgical year which centers around the commemoration of the Paschal Mystery most especially observed in the solemn celebration of the Sacred Paschal Triduum.

In the rich yet no less elegant simplicity of its liturgical rites, the Church makes present now the holy events of Christ's last days on earth that fittingly cap his life and ministry, which altogether bring us redemption and show us the way to salvation.

Here are some materials that you may find useful for your Triduum:

Sacred Paschal Triduum
Word document ready for printing. Includes the liturgy for the entire triduum in English as well as the document Paschales Solemnitatis. Prayers of the Faithful and other parts especially composed. In the Appendix, you will also find Mass on Easter Morning, and musical scores of the Regina Caeli (with my translation of the hymn into Filipino) and Fr. Carlo Magno Marcelo's Exsultet. Also includes an alternative formula for the Renewal of Baptismal Promises.

Filipino Exsultet
Fr. Manoling Francisco's new musical score for the Exsultet (short form) in Filipino commissioned by the Minister of the Ministry for Liturgical Affairs of the Archdiocese of Manila, Fr. Genaro Diwa, SLL. Original Score and CD exclusively available at Jesuit Communications Foundation and all Tanging Yaman outlets.

Pange Lingua in Filipino
A new translation. May be sung to traditional melodies.

Liturgical Guide for the Easter Triduum
From the Ministry for Liturgical Affairs of the Archdiocese of Manila. Includes the Rite and Mass Formularies for the traditional Salubong.

Other Triduum Materials
Composed parts of the above document Sacred Paschal Triduum.

Am I right in guessing that the alternative formula for the Renewal of Baptismal Promises is the one we used at the retreat last year? I liked it.
Another alternative formula may be the one used by the Episcopal Church of the Philippines as the Baptismal Covenant, which is relevant as there is an existing agreement between the Episcopal Church and the Roman Catholic Church recognizing each others' baptism. It is exactly the same as that found in the US Book of Common Prayer (1979), and they also use it, in the same place we do, at the Easter Vigil and on Easter Day.

Oh and yes, there is a renunciation of evil that comes before the Covenant, just above, which can be added to the renewal if you're using the BCP form.

Thanks again, Ren. It was the same one that we used last year. I composed it, having in mind that the Retreatants have already attended the Easter Vigil and have renewed their Baptismal Promises using the traditional formula. So this was meant to be an elaboration of what their "I do's" actually mean, over and above just avoiding repetition. Happy Easter!

Hello! I know this is kinda off topic but I was wondering which blog platform are you using for this site?

I'm getting tired of Wordpress because I've had problems with hackers and I'm looking at alternatives for another platform. I would be great if you could point me in the direction of a good platform.
