Christ is Risen, Alleluia!

Today the Church celebrates one of the most central mysteries of the Christian faith: the resurrection of Christ.

We were fully received into the Church at Easter Vigil yesterday, receiving the sacrament of Confirmation and our first Holy Communion! Praise the Lord.

And because we've been busy with everything related to that, no long blog post this week.

But I would like to share just a few short things though.

In the Catholic Church, the day of Easter does not stand alone. It is only the beginning of a 50 day Easter season of celebrations of the resurrection of Christ. Of course we celebrate the resurrection all year, but it is during this time that we particularly meditate upon it.

I will leave you with one formulations of 'the mystery of faith' used in the Mass:

Dying you destroyed our death. Rising your restored our life. Lord Jesus, come in glory.

Amen. Happy Easter. Let our 50 day celebration begin.

  1. Thought you'd enjoy this-- I usually don't like Bill O'Reilly, but I thought this was good, and applicable to some of the conversations we've been having.
