“As we draw more deeply into the heart of this Season of Lent, we have been given a means to observe in a more meaningful manner the coming days with the launching of the book, “HOLY WEEK AND THE EASTER TRIDUUM” by +Fr. Anscar J. Chupungco, OSB, with photographs by Mr. Noli I. Yamsuan, Jr.” This was announced by Fr. Genaro O. Diwa, Chair of the Archdiocesan Liturgical Commission, Manila, which published the book.

The publication of the book was inspired by two beloved persons: His Eminence Gaudencio B. Cardinal Rosales, Archbishop Emeritus of Manila, and, Fr. Anscar, the most outstanding Filipino liturgist of our time, Fr. Diwa said.

The photographs are of Cardinal Rosales, or Cardinal Dency, as we fondly call him, taken by Noli Yamsuan as he presided over Holy Week services at the Cathedral. The photos were taken beginning on Palm Sunday and ending with the Easter Vigil.

Fr. Anscar upon seeing the photos was inspired to put captions on them and encouraged their publication into a “small coffee table” book, more as a keepsake than a volume. Sadly his passing away overtook its publication. But now the book is here.

We invite you to join us at the launching on Monday, March 23, 2015, beginning with vespers at 4:30 p.m. at the Chapel of the Arzobispado de Manila in Intramuros, Manila.  Cardinal Rosales will be the guest of honor.

The books will be sold at a discounted price during this launching.
