9 weeks ago, we were celebrating the Paschal Triduum of Holy Thursday, Good Friday, and Easter Sunday.

  • We recalled the original Passover and Exodus from Egypt, some 1400 years earlier, when the Lord rescued the People of Israel from slavery in Egypt. This was accomplished partly through the sacrifice of the Passover Lamb, and also through the parting of the Red Sea, so that they could pass through on dry land. And so they were rescued from Egypt and set on their way to the Promised Land.
  • And so we celebrated the fulfillment of this foreshadowing in our Lord Jesus Christ, who is the true Passover Lamb. For by giving himself in sacrifice, he set us free not merely from earthly slavery, but from Satan and sin and death. And he passed through, not merely an earthly sea, but death itself, to open the transformed life of the Resurrection. Thus we have been saved and set on our way to the New Heavens and the New Earth.

There’s something interesting that we should notice in our first reading, from the Book of Acts, especially during this season when so many of our students are receiving confirmation. And that is a clear, very early, example of the sacrament of confirmation—though it is not named as such.

In Acts chapter 8, it is only about 3-5 years after the Day of Pentecost: very early in the Church’s history. And Philip—not the apostle Philip, but one of the seven deacons (more…)
