This Sunday we begin Holy Week, and for this reason ACI Prensa has published a special to learn about, reflect on and live intensely the Holy Easter Triduum, in which the Passion, Death and Resurrection of Christ is updated.
Among the texts you can find reflections by important authors such as Saint Thomas Aquinas, the Jesuit priest Bertrand de Margerie; and Dom Columba Marmion.
Here are some resources from our Easter special:
