Asked in Easter, Catholicism, Popes
Why is the Easter Triduum so important for Christans?
The Easter tridium is important to Catholics because it helps us keep focused on what Jesus had to go through for our sins. We have been preparing for Easter through our Lenten practices and now we have come to Holy Week. We must think about what Jesus did for us. Would you be brave enough to die on a cross for our sins?

What are the 3 days of tridium?
If you mean the three days of the Triduum which are at Easter then: Holy Week consists of three special days to Christians this is also known as the Easter Triduum The first one is Maundy Thursday; this is on the 1st of April this year and symbolizes the day that Jesus got together with his ten disciples and had a meal this is called The Last Supper. The next of the three days is Good Friday it reminds people of the day Jesus died on the cross by Pontius Pilate and was buried in a tomb. This year it is on the 2nd of April. The last in the Easter Triduum is Easter Sunday it is celebrated because it represents how Jesus rose from the dead and came out of the tomb!! All of these dates vary each year.
Asked in Catholic Confirmation
What information should you study for a Catholic Confirmation exam for teenagers?
Jesus Christ is also known as the Messiah, our friend and teacher, the Savior, and the Son of Man. He died for everyone's sins so that everyone has a chance for heaven. Sin is an offense against God's teachings. Jesus was born in Bethlehem. He grew up in Jerusalem. (To help remember: He was born in Bethlehem.) Jesus' mother is Mary, Jesus' foster father is Joseph, and God is Jesus' real father. Jesus chose 13 apostles to follow him. Miracles that Jesus performed include recovering a sinner's ear and rising to heaven. At the Last Supper, Jesus ate and drank with his disciples before being arrested. The day that Jesus died on the cross is called Good Friday. Jesus resurrected from the dead on Easter Sunday. Jesus is still alive today in the tabernacle. The Sacrament where we ask for God's forgiveness is called Reconciliation or Penance. For Communion, we receive the body and blood of Jesus. One of our popes is John Paul XVIII. One of our bishops is Tod Brown. One reason we want to fulfill the sacrament of Confirmation is because we want to be as close to God as possible because we love him as he loves us. The two great Commandments are "Love God with your whole heart," and "Love others as God loves you." The Ten Commandments (some helpful description): The Lord, your God, is the only one you shall worship and serve. (As a monotheist, you aren't allowed to also worship Buddha if one of your parents is Buddhist while the other is Catholic.) Don't disrespect God's name. (Don't say "I swear to God..." or speak negative about God.) Keep the Sabbath day holy. (You're not restricted from working on Sunday, but you should attend Mass every Sunday. You can't consider, "Mass is a half-hour shorter on Saturday's than on Sunday's, so I'll go on Saturday's instead of Sunday's.") Honor your mom and dad. (God teaches everyone to love each other, so this is more self-explanatory.) Don't kill. (No intentional homicide, abortion, suicide, drug abuse, etc.) Don't commit adultery. (No rape, prostitution, divorce, incest, etc.) Don't steal. (Don't take what's not given to you, because everyone has the right to his/her belongings.) Don't bear false witness against your neighbor. (Don't lie. You don't want to snitch on your friend, but maybe you can tell the truth and then somehow lessen your friend's punishments afterwards.) Don't covet your neighbor's wife. (Your neighbor commited vows for his/her spouse, so you shouldn't do anything that may cause him/her to break his/her promises.) Don't covet your neighbor's things. (Money is nothing compared to God's love. Be satisfied with what you have, even if you have less than everyone else.) We receive the Holy Spirit during Confirmation. The Holy Spirit is the moral conscience that exists in everyone. Lent begins on Ash Wednesday. The Holy Spirit's 7 fruits are wisdom, understanding, right judgement, knowledge, courage, reverance, and piety. A disciple is a follower of someone, as of God. The Bible is divided into 2 parts: Old and New Testament. The Holy Spirit's 7 gifts are prudence, justice, fortitude, temperance, kindness, modesty, and joy. The Liturgical Year consists of Original Time, Advent, Christmas, Ordinary Time, Lent, Paschal Triduum, and Easter. The seven Sacraments are Baptism, Confirmation, Eucharist, Penance, The Sick's Annointing, Holy Orders, and Matrimony. Easter is the celebration of Jesus' resurrection. Christmas is the celebration of Jesus' birth. Faith is belief and trust, like Christians have in God. Grace is God's gift for us for our good deeds. A mortal sin (such as murder) is a grave sin that was committed purposefully by a person aware of its evilness. It separates your soul's ties with God's grace until you repent. Regardless of the quantity of your mortal sins, God will always love you, though you still need to seek redemption. A venial sin (such as teasing) is minor, may be accidentally commited, and doesn't separate your soul from God's grace. Reconciliation is asking God for forgiveness. A priest is an invisible connection between us and God, usually represented by a man who leads the Mass at church. We pray the Nicene Creed during Mass after the homily before the Eucharist. The Tridium is like the Holy Trinity. A prayer is an act that strengthens the connection between us and God, such as meditating, talking to God, doing good deeds, singing (particularly the psalms), and dancing. We pray the rosary to strengthen our connection with God and for Mary's protection, since this prayer honors Mary. There are 14 Stations of the Cross. A short prayer may be something like the following: "O God, we remain hopeful for you, continue to strive with our good deeds, and thank you for your forgiveness for the times when we're lost. Please keep near my family and friends no matter where we go. Amen."
