Alleluia! Alleluia! Alleluia!
“Christ now raised from the dead
will never die again,
death no longer has power
over him.” Rom 6:9
Praying that your Easter is blessed and full of love, joy and peace.
May the Resurrected Lord bless you today and always.
NO FASTING! The Octave of Easter comprises the eight days
which stretch from the first to the second Sunday.
It is a way of prolonging the joy of the initial day.
In a sense, every day of the octave is like a little Sunday.
There are 50 days of Easter from Easter Sunday to Pentecost.
Some may choose to continue to fast after the Octave
to keep the fasting muscles and habits in place.
The 50 days of Easter are characterized,
above all, by the joy of glorified life and the victory over death,
expressed most fully in the great resounding cry of the Christian:
Alleluia! All faith flows from faith in the resurrection:
“If Christ has not been raised, then empty is our preaching; empty, too, is your faith.”
PLEASE NOTE: There will be no shipping during
the 50 days of Easter
and no fasting email reminders.
