The Resurrection of Jesus is such overwhelmingly Good News that a single day is not enough to celebrate it. The Lord’s Resurrection is meant to be celebrated intensely for the whole week following Easter (known as the Octave), the whole liturgical Season of Easter (lasting until Pentecost, this year June 5th), and every Sunday thereafter (each as a mini-Easter).
Perhaps you’ve heard the phrase, “We are an Easter people.” Good Friday was not the end. The “Season” in which we live. . . waiting for Jesus’ second coming. . . is Easter. . . or perhaps, more fittingly, Pentecost. Ponder that. Celebrate that...and testify to it! The resources below offers a menu of ideas for how to do that.
He is risen. Alleluia, Alleluia.
