The final part of the Triduum Liturgy begins in darkness; the Easter fire is ignited, the Easter candle is lit and all present light a candle from this one flame representing the Risen Christ; and the Church once again takes up the retelling of the history of salvation; the Alleluia is resurrected; those who have been preparing for baptism and confirmation are received into the Church; and we celebrate the love of God for us in the Eucharistic feast.
