What are you doing out of the ordinary, if anything?
As it is one of the biggest events of the liturgical calender, the simple answer is yes. Having been through Lent, this Sunday marks Passion Sunday and then Palm Sunday the following week. A lot of church orientated things happen during the week leading up to Easter, but I will be in Church for the Saturday night vigil leading into midnight Mass.
We will have lit tapers from the fire which is symbolic of the risen Christ, and then we will enter the dark church which has been stripped in symbolism of the deep mourning of Christ's death. This is quite a long seremony with many readings from the bible.....and leads into Mass.
During the Week of Christ's passion the gospels pertaining to the Passion are read in their entirety, along with readings from the Old Testament.
It is a very important time in my life.
Why yes....more love, more closeness, more commitment to loving the way God wants us to live. Thanks for asking!
We are in between churches right now. The "new" church we've been visiting is having a Passion Play and we will be involved in it. It was going to be outside but we are having an unusually cold March with 9" of snow on the ground. I think the pastor has decided to move it indoors. For the first time in years we will be going to a church that has a sunrise Easter service and we're very excited about that.
Good Friday, the church is in deep mourning, it is a day of fast and abstinence, so after the 1500hr liturgy, most of us will gather at a home to have soup and bread/toast.
Easter is such a beautiful time to reflect on the depth of love Jesus has for us.:wavey:
