PASCHALCAzT 49 – Easter Tuesday: Christ won it, but we can lose it

It’s Easter  Tuesday. Christ is risen! Alleluia!  The Octave is underway.

Today we some of my own musings, along with support from St. Leo the Great in the 5th century.  When you are right, you are right!

The wonderful nuns of Gower Abbey bring us in.


At the end, we hear some of the orchestral version of Victimae Paschali Laudes by Pietro Yon.  It is recorded by the Twin Cities Catholic Chorale under the baton of the late Msgr. Richard Schuler.  This is from waaaay back before I entered seminary, and I am in the bass section, which is prominent at the end.  This grand version is played on Easter Sunday and the Octave at St. Agnes Church in St. Paul where Schuler was pastor for 33 years.  He died on 20 April 2007.

Msgr. Schuler gave me my instruction as a convert and received me into the Church.  While he was pastor at St. Agnes, some 30 men celebrated their 1st Masses there and several now-bishops were among them.

I provide these especially in gratitude to benefactors who help me and this blog.

Please share!

    This is my daily fear.
