Resurrection 

(via adaltaredei)

We had pulled pork and listened to AC/DC during Easter dinner.
Not as traditional, but still good.

Today is Easter, when Christians celebrate the resurrection of Jesus Christ as described in the New Testament. Glencairn’s chapel includes a stained glass window with three scenes from the Easter story, all created in the Bryn Athyn Studios. The central panel shows the resurrected Christ meeting with Mary Magdalene:
"Then they said to her, ‘Woman, why are you weeping?’ She said to them, ‘Because they have taken away my Lord, and I do not know where they have laid Him.’ Now when she had said this, she turned around and saw Jesus standing there, and did not know that it was Jesus. Jesus said to her, ‘Woman, why are you weeping? Whom are you seeking?’ She, supposing Him to be the gardener, said to Him, ‘Sir, if You have carried Him away, tell me where You have laid Him, and I will take Him away.’ Jesus said to her, ‘Mary!’ She turned and said to Him, ‘Rabboni!’ (which is to say, Teacher)." (John 20:13-16)

Church was… interesting today. Mary Lee read the Gospel, which made me happy. My new priest’s preaching style is interesting… It  drove me crazy that pieces of Rite II were mixed into the Rite I service (The prayers of the people, and the modern version of the Lord’s Prayer. Can that just be abolished, please?) And the sacristan forgot to light the Paschal candle until halfway through the homily. Oops?

The Holy Fire appeared at the Church of the Holy Sepulcher in Jerusalem while thousands of Orthodox Christian and Catholic Christians were waiting for the miracle to come. 

Christ is Risen!

And time for my father’s Easter tradition of yardwork. Fun! (Not…)
