…on what is the most religious week of the year. For Catholics it started with making various sacrifices since Ash Wednesday but now the Lenten season is slowly winding down but when I was growing up it would get real intense in our house as far as going to church. When your a kid that’s not the place you want to spend your free time especially when it wasn’t even Sunday but that’s where my sister and I were right beside our mother. Mom would have us there for mass during the evening on Holy Thursday. We returned to the church for stations of the cross on Good Friday which this year is also Passover on the Jewish calendar. On Holy Saturday at noon we took a basket of food, usually colored eggs, homemade cheese, and Kielbasa to get blessed at the church. Then before sundown we’d be back at the church for the Easter Vigil. Then the next day we would be back at church for Easter Sunday. Today the Easter Vigil fulfills the parishioners Sunday Duty so you can just wake up on Sunday enjoy the bless food before the huge Easter dinner. And despite all that I’ll probably still have a tough time getting into heaven. Either way, Happy Easter!
