Easter Monday- Lamb at last!


Alleluia! He is risen.

Since- in the immortal words of a person who shall remain anonymous at the end of the Triduum and Easter Sunday- "He is risen, but we're all dead"- I come home and do some serious relaxing (i.e., sleep the sleep from which to awake is to be resurrected) while everybody else goes to my parents' house for ham (talk about your Christian triumphalism!), we enjoyed our Easter Monday Paschal lamb feast last evening. We enjoyed this resurrection feast with much praise and a nice bottle of Louis Jadot beaujolis wine. Deo gratias for the good and new life we have in Christ Jesus, who makes all things new! As the responsorial to the reading of the Word of God in the Liturgy of the Hours throughout the Octave indicates: "This is the day the Lord has made; let us rejoice and be glad, alleluia! (Ps 118,4)

Alleluia. He is risen, indeed!
