    Triduum went well for us. Thanks for the pics. What? no audio for the Easter Proclamation.
    And one more question: what did your parish use for the fire? Looks good and safer than wood.


  2. Deacon Greg Kandra says:

    Ha. If I’d taped it, I’m sure I would have blown it. I was convinced it would be a dud — I was loopy on Mucinex and Benadryl and terrified of having a coughing fit in the middle of it — but my wife’s prayers and God’s mercy prevailed :-)

    As for the fire, I think it’s a mixture of salt and lighting fluid. I’ll try to find out more.

  3. I’ve been fighting spring allergies as well. No way I could take Benedryl as it knocks me right out. It seemed to ease up during the Triduum and the Exultet went well. Several told be it was good but I didn’t believe them until one friend I can trust to be honest thought it was the best in 9 years.

  4. Greg,
    For the fire we used salt, alcohol and the instant light coals we put in the thurible.
