Living Easter

HE IS RISEN!

It is Eastertide! Like Christmas, Christians get more than 1 day, we get 50! Now you've probably posted your slew of Easter pics on Facebook but now it's time to live it!

I don't have the margin to say much, this is an uber busy bit in the life and times of the Willits family but I wanted to share a couple links and encourage you to live your resurrection joy!

Here are a couple links to learn more about Eastertide and the Easter Octave. Two interesting aspects of the liturgical calendar that don't get as much love as other parts.

EASTERTIDE From Dr. Mark Roberts over on Patheos, he usually has pretty solid and informative stuff. Of course, Wiki is also helpful. I haven't read through it but I'm sure it's informative.

THE EASTER OCTAVE. I didn't find a lot on the inter-webs about The Easter Octave. I've read a good bit about it over the past year and maybe I'll post some more about it later, but essentially it includes Easter and the 7 days that follow; keep the party going! There is also a Christmas Octave. Here is an article from Today's Catholic News about it. And a Wiki link that says a little but not much.

HE IS RISEN INDEED!
Now go and Live Resurrection!!!

Grace and peace
