Today is Sunday “in albis“, the Octave of Easter, Divine Mercy Sunday.
Happy Easter to all!
The Roman Station is St. Pancras. The custom of Roman Stations continued through the Octave of Easter. The titular cardinal is Antonio Cañizares Llovera, Prefect of the Congregation for Divine Worship.
A hint at the thought: The newly baptized wore their white baptismal robes for an “octave” period after Easter during which they received special instruction from the bishop about the sacred mysteries and Christian life which they hadn’t been taught before the Vigil rites.
