The Great Three Days: Holy Thursday An Edge Night on the Season of the Triduum About this Edge Night The Edge Night begins with Holy Thursday in a small space. After a Scripture reflection, the teaching will help the youth understand what the Triduum is and how Holy Thursday celebrates the institution of both the Eucharist and the priesthood. The youth will have a short time in small groups and conclude the first part of the night in Eucharistic Adoration. The youth will transition into Good Friday and begin with a Scripture reflection on the Passion and Death of Jesus. The teaching will help the youth understand the free gift of salvation won for them on the cross and the sacred practice of veneration of the cross. After a short time of prayer and reflection, this part of the night will end with veneration of the cross. Following veneration, the youth will transition into Holy Saturday and begin with a Scripture reflection. The teaching will focus on what it means to wait and hope in Christ. The night will end with a time of journaling and silent prayer. Goal of This Night NOTE: This Edge Night is part of the overall Edge Night “The Great Three Days.” This Edge Night, along with Good Friday and Holy Saturday, should be used together to facilitate “The Great Three Days” Edge Night. The goal of the Edge Night is to introduce the youth to the liturgical season of the Triduum. The youth will experience the richness of the celebrations that will help them understand why the Triduum is the most sacred time of the year in the Church.
