Daily Easter Reflections: "Bursting forth from Pharaoh’s prison, Alleluia! Let us sing! Alleluia! Christ is risen. Alleluia to our king!"


Our Lenten journey culminates in the vigil's powerful catechesis

Daily Lenten Reflections: Tonight we are simply ending the time of vigiling, praying and fasting that we began on Thursday night when we washed each other's feet here in this place, the vigiling and praying and fasting that continued through Good Friday when we came forward one by one to kiss or embrace or bow or kneel before the image of the cross.

Daily Lenten Reflections: This washing of one another's feet is a vision of how people might live together. We do it but once a year; we want to get to that night between Saturday and Sunday with its fire, its song, its scriptures, its font of baptism and its table of bread and wine.
