OLDIE PASCHALCAzT 48: Easter Monday – Octaves explained

This year I am not continuing with PASCHALCAzTs during the Octave of 2014, but one year I did!

Here is one from 2011.


These 5 minute daily podcasts are intended to give you a small boost every day and a little insight into Easter and its Octave.

Today is Monday in the Octave of Easter. Happy Easter to all!  The Roman Station is St. Peter’s in the Vatican.   The custom of Roman Stations continues all through the Octave of Easter

A hint at the thought: Theologically speaking, an octave anticipates the eternal bliss of heaven in which we will consider God in His glory.

    Nice; thanks for thinking of us yet another day. :) I like the bit about the, “time stopping” on the 8th day of the octave.
    In in sem, I remember once a class on “kyrios” vs. “chronos”; God’s-time vs. Man’s-time. Did I remember that correctly? …how this is related to all the instances (like Mass et. al.) when we step into the eternal now of God/heaven.

    I think you mean kairos, Kyrios is “Lord”.

    See http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kairos

    Yes! Thank you, Pappy; I lost that a long time ago, and you found it for me. :)

    Thanks, Father! I do love being Catholic, the Church sees fit to suspend time and so we have an Octave to be glad in.
