Holy Week and Easter is a liturgical Superbowl of sorts. Being a liturgical musician, this is the busiest, and most rewarding time of year. Those who are not Catholic most likely have never seen the beauty of the Easter Vigil. I didn’t get any photos during the bulk of the mass because I was working and focusing on the mass, but I hope you enjoy a peek into one parish’s (among thousands) celebration.
It all starts with a fire which is blessed and used to light the Pascal candle.
The light is then processed into the church where the parishioners light their own candles which were distributed before the start of the ritual.
Some photos of the sanctuary afterwards…
We have a new addition to our family! The fam and I picked her up today from a local rabbit rescue. She is still a baby, although at 9 weeks she is the size of an average adult. Flemish giants can grow to be between 20 and 30 lbs! My son wants to call her “Tubby”, but I don’t want to give the poor thing a complex. We’ll try the name thing tomorrow. It’s nice to have another lady in the house! The marks in her ear is there to differentiate the male from females and birth order.
