We should glory in the Cross
of our Lord Jesus Christ,
in whom is our salvation, life and resurrection,
through whom we are saved and delivered.
Roman Missal, Maundy Thursday
Since Christ accomplished his work of human redemption and of the perfect glorification of God principally through his Paschal Mystery, in which by dying he has destroyed our death, and by rising restored our life, the sacred Paschal Triduum of the Passion and Resurrection of the Lord shines forth as the high point of the entire liturgical year. Therefore the pre-eminence that Sunday has in the week, the Solemnity of Easter has in the liturgical year.
