PASCHALCAzT 54: Low Sunday “in albis”: “The Easter lesson comes down to our own lives.”

Today is the Easter Octave Sunday, or Dominica in albis, for the white baptismal garments of those who were recently baptized.  It is sometimes called “Thomas Sunday” because of the Gospel reading about the “doubting” Apostle.  It is also famously called “Quasimodo Sunday” for the first word of the opening chant, the Introit (cf. 1 Peter 2:2-3).
It is called “Low Sunday” probably in contrast to the hoopla of last Sunday.
Oh yes… now it is often called “Mercy Sunday” because of the emphasis on the dimension of the mercy of God’s redemptive act celebrated at Easter. The newest, third edition of the Missale Romanum of 2002 specifically labels this Sunday: Dominica II Paschae seu de divina Misericordia.

The Roman Station is St. Pancras on the Gianicolo Hill.

Today we wrap things up in the final podcast for Lent and Easter cycle, with wisdom from Card. Bacci and from Fulton J. Sheen.

    Thanks for such quality sounds, thoughts and knowledge. Perfect for this year; as Lent seemed to continue in our lives, while our Liturgy told us otherwise! Alleluia!

    Thank you, Father, for the beautiful Lentcazts and Paschalcazts. The information about the saints and our patrimony allows us to see that our faith is not just for heads and hearts, but also for our hands and feet as well. God bless you and your work.
