THE SACRED TRIDUUM

On the following threee days the Office is taken straight out of the Proper of the Season. It is a very “stripped down” Office (see the “Note on the Sacred Triduum” on p. C288). The Anglican Breviary follows the Pian reform of 1910 in the Sacred Triduum as well, but adds an option to shorten the Office of Tenebrae by indicating where the Psalms would normally be broken up. 

A blessed Holy Week to all!
