He Is Risen!
Is is Eastertide! Like Christmas, Christians get more than 1 day, we get 50! Now you’ve probably posted your slew of Easter pics on Facebook but now it’s time to live it!
I don’t have the margin to say much, this is an uber busy bit in the life and times of the Willits family but I wanted to share a couple links and encourage you to live your resurrection joy!
Here are a couple links to learn more about Eastertide and the Easter Octave. Two interesting aspect of the liturgical calendar that don’t get as much love as other parts.
THE EASTER OCTAVE
I didn’t find a lot on the inter-webs about The Easter Octave. I’ve read a good bit about it over the past year and maybe I’ll post some more about it later, but essentially it includes Easter and the 7 days that follow; keep the party going! There is also a Christmas Octave.
Here is an article from Today’s Catholic News about it.
Wiki link that say a little but not much.
HE IS RISEN INDEED!
Grace and peace
