Happy Easter

The long, solemn wait of Lent is over and we've arrived at the joyous celebration of Easter!

This year, for a change, Cathy, the lads and I didn't serve at the Easter Vigil. We did go to the Good Friday service. I was tagged to read the 'Narrator' part in the Passion. That went well. (Better than when I read at the Palm Sunday Mass and stood too early during the kneeling part of the Passion.)

This morning we attended the 8:15 a.m. which was celebrated by Fr. V. A nice Mass. Cathy and I weren't involved, but the boys were altar servers.

Shortly it's off to an Easter lunch at my parent's house.

Palm Sunday

It's Palm Sunday and tonight at Mass I'll be reading the narrator's part in the Passion reading.

This is the one time during the liturgical year that I get to read from the gospel. It's a somewhat daunting responsibility.

I'm prepared, though, and the people at St. Rose are very kind.Palm Sunday, of course, marks the beginning of Holy Week.

I pray that all who read this will find peace in their relationship to God in the coming Easter Season.
