Easter, the greatest solemnity of the Christian liturgy, is celebrated on three great days, a triduum. On these three great days, from Holy Thursday evening, through Good Friday, until vespers (later afternoon or evening prayer) on Easter Sunday, the Church commemorates the Paschal Mysteries, that is, the passion, death, and resurrection of Our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.
