Is Easter over?

04-23-2017Fr. Michael Straley

Howdy,

Is Easter over already? Is all of that preparation in Lent and especially during Holy Week all for one quick day? Now we can go back to our "normal" lives like everyone else?

Actually, NO! That is why the Catholic Church celebrates the "day" of Easter for a whole week! After that we celebrate Easter as a season until the Feast of Pentecost, when we celebrate the end of Easter by remembering that we, too, have received the gift of the Holy Spirit.

Why is all of this important? It is to remind us that for us who have shared in the resurrection of Jesus, for us who receive His body and Blood, for us who have received His Holy Spirit at Pentecost, Easter is our life--all year long!
