THE SACRED TRIDUUM - according to the Roman Missal of 1962 for the Greater Toronto Area

The Toronto Traditional Mass Society - UNA VOCE TORONTO, is very appreciative of the Discalced Nuns of Carmel of the Infant Jesus at Zephyr who belong to the Order of the Blessed Virgin Mary of Mount Carmel for allowing us to use their Carmel for the Sacred Triduum for the second year. 

The services will be offered according to the Roman Missal of 1962 and will be sung with a spirit of solemnity and prayer to recall the Paschal Mystery of Our Blessed Lord's institution of the Holy Eucharist and priesthood, His saving passion and death and His glorious resurrection from the dead.

A map to the Carmel can be found here.


From the Divine Intimacy (Pere Gabriel of St. Mary Magdalene) :

What a marvelous exchange! The Master Himself for a slave, God for man, the Creator for the creature, the innocent One for the sinner. You put yourself into the hands of the traitor, the faithless disciple. The traitor handed you over to the Jews. The wicked Jews delivered you to the Gentiles to be mocked, scourged, spit upon, and crucified. You had said these things; You had foretold them, and they came to pass. Then, when all was accomplished, You were crucified and numbered among the wicked. But it was not enough that You were wounded. to the pain of your wounds, they added other ignominies and, to slake your burning thirst, they gave you wine mixed with myrrh and gall. I weep for You, my King, my Lord, and Master, my father and Brother, my beloved Jesus". 

(St. Bonaventure)
