Eastertide’s Joy and Rest Each Sunday

I’ve seen with seven grown children how the religion lessons and discussions about their faith come back to them when they are grown. Sometimes they help us to understand spiritual things. My son, Jarred, helped me to understand a profound truth about Lent and Easter and how to live this out through the liturgical year. He commented, “Mom, the Passion of Jesus strengthens our faith while the Resurrection increases our hope!” These words inspired much reflection.

Celebrating in the Easter Light

Not too long ago, our seven-year-old grandson was looking through some 1950s family photo albums. We explained to him how he was related to the various family members in the pictures. At one point, he asked why wasn’t there color back then. We assured him that the mid-twentieth-century world was full of color. We then described how technology had changed photography over the last seventy years.

A Few Words

The seven-year-old immediately exclaimed, “I believe in God!”

Easter as a Season

Easter is the highest point in the liturgical year as we celebrate the Resurrection of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. As a Catholic mother, I celebrate Easter Sunday with my family and savor the joy of the day. It is all beautiful. But the Easter season lasts 50 days, and there is great reason for us to keep that spirit alive with both ourselves and our families.

Easter is a Season: Go to Christ

It’s Easter Season! So, why do I feel like I’m still in Lent? Go to Christ in prayer to make all things new! Easter is a season of ongoing resurrection. It is a celebration that starts with one glorious morning but cannot be contained in a single day, so we continue celebrating the Easter Season. We know Lent is 40 days, and if you are like me, you feel each one. However, we forget that Easter is 50 days, and we are shortchanging ourselves if we are not rejoicing in it!
