Comments: Happy Easter...

A belated "Happy Easter", from one "Mom" to another!
Oh, the "Easter Vigil Mass" is absolutely beautiful--my favorite (followed by Christmas Eve.) I converted and took my first Eucharist in the Church (and was annointed with the oil)at the Easter Vigil----The Church accepts previous Baptisms from most other Denominations, so I wasn't Baptized. This is one of the few times our Parish uses incense as well---It all feels so Mystical and ancient---which I happen to feel makes for a most reverent atmosphere. Believe me, this is an incredibly powerful experience for those taken into the Church that night (after much long, long preparation.) Something else which happens that night is that for the first time since all was "taken away" on Good Friday, (just as Jesus "left the World" upon his Death) everything is "returned" to the altar and sanctuary.
It is not loud, "happy" or anything close to quick, but truly is a worship service like none other I've taken part in.

Nice to have you here, too. I've met a lot of really good people through Misha's Rottie.

Dear Mama,
I feel a little sheepish--just scrolled down and saw your other postings ( didn't make it that far before)--you were sweet to be so patient with my
previous message. I see you know a "little" about the Church ...but isn't that just like a Mom---patient and kind to a fault as long as no one's acting up!
