The Triduum in Photos

Most people know that it’s possible to walk in the footsteps of Christ by visiting the Holy Land. What many do not realize is that, thanks to Divine Intervention and Saint Helena, it’s also possible to view many of the relics associated with the Passion of Christ while visiting Rome.

I’ve put together a photo essay of the Holy Triduum, from the Last Supper to the Empty Tomb. All places and relics that it’s possible to visit and see in person.

I invite you to join me on an upcoming pilgrimage to Rome or the Holy Land. If you are already scheduled to be in Rome, check out my popular day pilgrimages of Catholic Rome. If you are unable to travel, you can at least travel virtually!
