EASTER MONDAY, APRIL 21, WITHIN THE OCTAVE OF EASTER

LORD GOD, HOW GREAT YOU ARE, CLOTHED IN MAJESSTY AND GLORY, WRAPPED IN LIGHT AS IN A ROBE! ALLELUIA!  (Ps 104:1b-2)

Stripped on Holy Thursday to wash the apostles’ feet, stripped on Good Friday to hang upon the cross, Jesus risen and triumphant is clothed in the light of glory, before which no enemy can stand, not even the roaring waters of chaos and death.  From Magnificat

Even though the commercialism is now over and the Easter eggs put away, Easter is still with us.  There are 8 days within the Octave of Easter and a total of 50 days in which we continue to celebrate Easter, ending on Pentecost Sunday.  This coming Sunday is Divine Mercy Sunday and I will explain more on that later.

THE LORD HAS RISEN FROM THE DEAD, AS HE SAID; LET US ALL EXULT AND REJOICE FOR HE REIGNS FOR ALL ETERNITY, ALLELUIS.
