I, with my companions in Western Christianity, celebrated Easter yesterday. I mentioned that I appreciate the Episcopal Holy Week services; I also joy in Easter morning. Yesterday was a glorious Easter celebration with full pews, a baptism, soaring Easter hymns, a big choir, brass accompaniment, a soul-warming swoon-worthy Widor Toccata voluntary, bright sun through stained glass, special coffee hour treats, Easter bonnets and corsages, all the lilies!, etc., followed by dinner with friends (“dinner” may have consisted in significant part of candy) and a nap. Happy Easter.
Alleluia! Christ is Risen!
He is risen indeed! Alleluia!
