From My Family to Yours: Happy Easter!

Last night, following the Easter Vigil, we spoke for the first time since Holy Thursday.

The Triduum is our most sacred time of year. We walk with Jesus’ apostles through the days of terror and loss. We go into silence to deepen our contemplation.

Then, at 8 p.m. on the 3rd day, we begin our Easter Vigil with the lighting of the new fire outdoors. (We burn last year’s palms.) We enter the chapel carrying the Paschal Candle lighted with the new fire, singing Christ our Light.

For the 1st time in 40 days, we once again sing Alleluia! Jesus is risen … and we are resurrected with him. The birds are singing … the flowers are blooming … God is in heaven!

After Mass, we enjoy a wonderful social hour, conversing again, laughing again.

May your Easter be joyous. Blessings from my family to yours!!!
