Understanding Is The Gift Of Easter

Easter Sunday Morning 2020
English speaking Catholics call this “Easter” Sunday because it is another example of the power of the Church and the liturgy to Christianize even evil pagan elements. The glory of the risen Savior will be ours one day but many saints were transfigured even in this life.  We are “eighth day Christians” because God rested on the seventh day of creation as Christ rested in the sepulchre and rose on Sunday marking a new week on the eighth day.  The octave day is a sign of eternal life.  The calculation of Easter each year was carefully studied and was miraculously made known.  As believers were rewarded by seeing Our Lord glorious and immortal so we today can see God through Faith enlightened by the gift of understanding.
