Liturgically speaking, today, Holy Saturday, technically lasts until 6pm or dusk.
In many Christian churches around the world, the Easter Vigil is then celebrated. This marks the official start of the Easter season. As always, Mary and I will be participating in the Easter Vigil in our Faith Community. It is our favorite mass, or service, of the year.
Wherever you are on the your spiritual journey, may the spirit of Easter and re-birth be with you and yours.
And, for those of you who are looking for a little more photo-remedy in your life, may you remember that the process of producing great pictures is always an opportunity to brighten your life and the lives of others. Looking through your lens is always an opportunity to help others see the beauty that God sees in this most wonderful world.
Mark 16: 1-7
Very early when the sun had risen, on the first day of the week, they came to the tomb.
They were saying to one another,”Who will roll back the stone for us from the entrance to the tomb?”
When they looked up, they saw that the stone had been rolled back; it was very large. On entering the tomb they saw a young man sitting on the right side, clothed in a white robe, and they were utterly amazed. He said to them, “Do not be amazed! You seek Jesus of Nazareth, the crucified. He has been raised; he is not here.Behold the place where they laid him. But go and tell his disciples and Peter, “He is going before you to Galilee; there you will see him, as he told you.'”
