8 is Enough

Happy Easter! I know it's Monday but it's still Easter. The great feast of feasts, Easter, the Day of the Resurrection, is celebrated by the Church as an octave. That simply means for all of us that Easter is too glorious, too joyful that one day simply can't contain it. So everyday from Easter Sunday until next Sunday is Easter.

If you go to Mass any day this week, Easter is celebrated.

And if 8 days is not enough for the celebration of our Lord's victory over death and sin, how about a season that lasts 50 days. From now to Pentecost Sunday, we will remain in the Easter season.

So celebrate the joy of the Resurrection, glory in the Risen Lord and wish Easter blessings to someone this week!!
