To Melbourne for Easter

My day at work over, I'll dash off to the airport for the 4:50pm flight to Melbourne, and hopefully by 8pm I'll be at St Aloysius, North Caulfield, for the Mass of Holy Thursday.

The Triduum promises to be particularly solemn, given that the emeritus Bishop of Christchurch is pontificating at all the services: Mass to-night, the Solemn Commemoration of the Passion and Tenebræ to-morrow, the Vigil on Saturday night, then Easter Mass (with Terce and Procession) and Vespers on Sunday.

I look forward to seeing my Melbourne friends; pray that I make a good end to Lent, and see the Resurrection.
