Easter Sunday

Posted: April 21, 2019 by CatholicJules in Personal Thoughts & Reflections

How beautiful is our Easter Celebrations which began at the Vigil with a walk from darkness into light when from the paschal candle; all other candles were lit. We heard the triumph and glory of God through the readings, we welcomed our newly baptised sisters and brothers into one Holy Catholic and Apostolic Church. We renewed our own baptismal vows and rejoiced in the joy of our Risen Lord!

This morning on the Holiest of Sundays the beginning in which all other Sundays follow, we celebrate the Day of the Risen Lord. We hear a new Gospel truth not proclaimed the evening before, then we await in eager anticipation to receive the Risen Lord in the Holy Eucharist. Sunday is truly a day set apart, Holy, Holy, Holy. Amen
