Solemn Liturgy of Good Friday: The Word, Veneration of the Cross, Holy Communion
In the tradition of Church, the first exposition, represents the first preaching of the Cross, that, namely, which the Apostles made, when, for fear of the Jews, they dared not to speak of the great
mystery except to a few faithful disciples of Jesus. The second exposition of the Cross signifies the Apostles' extending their preaching of the mystery of our redemption to the Jews, after the
descent of the Holy Spirit; by which preaching they made many thousand converts, and planted the Church in the very midst of the Synagogue. The third and final manifestation represents the
mystery of the Cross being preached to the whole world, when the Apostles, after being rejected by the majority of the Jewish people, turned towards the Gentiles, and preached Jesus crucified
even far beyond the limits of the Roman Empire.

Solemn Mass of the Easter Vigil and Blessing of the Easter Fire
The Easter Vigil liturgy is the most beautiful liturgy in the Roman Catholic Church. This dramatic Easter vigil liturgy marks the beginning of Easter: We are awaiting our master's return with our lamps full and burning, so that he will find us awake and seat us at his table (cf. Luke 12:35ff). The vigil is divided into four parts: Service of Light, Liturgy of the Word, Liturgy of Baptism/Renewal of Baptismal promises, and Liturgy of the Eucharist. All Catholics should try to attend this beautiful service.
