AAAAAAGH…I’m told I have no patience & WordPress is* really* trying what little patience I ca claim with its goofy photo feature.

As promised, here are some scenes from our Easter Sunday celebration. During the 8 oclock Mass, Best Dude & I hid candy-filled plastic Easter eggs for the children to find during the Coffee Hour between Masses. We also had our annual Easter runch at this time….complete with CHOCOLATE FRENCH TOAST Yum . Yum. Yum.

I attended the later Easter Day Mass with Best Dude & met a really nice young family who came to the parish for first time on Sunday.

I must remember that the Confession of Sin is ommitted from the liturgy of the Word during the Easter season. :O)

Alleluia!

Easter is 50 Days! Part One

ALLELUIA!

Happy Easter!

I know I am a bit late with updating, but it was a wonderful and BUSY Holy Triduum. We had church Thursday evening, Friday & Saturday….and I went to all the services but for the daytime Hoy Saturday liturgy. I get enough at the Friday Stations Of The Cross & Good Friday liturgy & I spent most of Saturday during the day in quiet contemplation & anticipation of the Easter Vigil..otherwise known among Catholic Christians as ” the Vigil of Vigils”.

We gathered at the church, kindled a fire { don’t worry, it was a contained fire} on the property, and processed into the church behind the priest & torch-bearer The Paschal Candle was lit from the torch. those who attended the Vigil heard the story of God’s plans to redeem humanity as told throughout the Old Testament. Th Gospel accoding to John was read & the lights came inthe nave so the remainder f the Mass was said under lights.

The Flower Guild did a fabulous job , as usual, with the placement of the Easter Lillies. Although I am allergic to these lillies I can still appreciate their beauty. I totaly lack an alent for flower-arranging & therefore appreciate the work of our dedicated Flower Guild members . Our small parish is blessed with so many talented individuals who are willing to share said talents.

At any rate, Best Dude & I atended the laer Easter Sunday Mss yesterdy & spent the day togther afterwards. I’l post commentary & photos from Easter Sunday tomorrow.

ALLELUIA! Christ has Risen! Happy Easter.
