Happy Easter, everyone!
Well, the Exultet is sung without noticeable deficiency. This deacon is glad for that!
The Vigil is complete and Easter has dawned early here.
The body is tired from the waiting in the night, but the light of day and of rest is ahead.
I hope all of you had a blessed Lent and like me are joy-filled as we enter the season of the Resurrection. As you have heard so often, I am sure, we Christians are an Easter people, a people who are to live each day as if caught up in the awe and wonder of the Resurrection, which each of us share now and will share fully in the future, by virtue of our common baptism.
Christ is Risen! Let the Alleluias ring!
