Call Me Catholic

He is Risen, Alleluia!

Since the children are busy finding their Easter baskets at the moment…I thought I’d send a quick note.

Happy Easter!

We attended the Easter Vigil last night, which lasted about three hours.  One of my favorite parts was the singing of the Exsultet by our Deacon.  And boy oh boy, can that man sing!  It was moving and beautiful to stand there in the flickering candlelight and hear him proclaim, “This is the night!”

During the singing of the Exsultet, I was a bit distracted, however, because I had to make sure none of my children started anything on fire.  (Everyone holds candles.)  Really, I must most concerned about my husband because he was holding the crabby toddler, who insisted on holding her own candle.  But we made it.  It was only the 7-year-old with ants in his pants that got wax everywhere.

In any case, may the Resurrected Jesus bring joy to your hearts!

View out my front door.  Looks like the children did get their White Easter.
