The Easter Season

by Colin Such

Posted 21/04/2022 15:58:53



The Great Fifty Days of Eastertide form a single festival period in which the
tone of joy created at the Easter Vigil is sustained through the following seven
weeks, and the Church celebrates the gloriously risen Christ:


Triumphant in his glory now,
his sceptre ruleth all,
earth, heaven and hell before him bow,
and at his footstool fall. (Fulbert of Chartres)

Passiontide and Holy Week

by Colin Such

Posted 02/04/2022 17:00:41



It is still uncertain when Christians first began to make an annual (as opposed to a weekly) memorial of the death and resurrection of Christ. This Pascha (a word derived indirectly from pesach, Hebrew ‘Passover’) was at first a night-long vigil, followed by the celebration of the Eucharist at cock-crow, and all the great themes of redemption were included within it: incarnation, suffering, death, resurrection, glorification. Over time, the Pascha developed into the articulated structure of Holy Week and Easter. Through participation in the whole sequence of services, the Christian shares in Christ’s own journey, from the triumphal entry into Jerusalem on Palm Sunday to the empty tomb on Easter morning. The procession with palms, which was already observed in Jerusalem in the fourth century, is accompanied by the reading or singing of the Passion Narrative, in which the whole story of the week is anticipated.

Lent is coming

by Colin Such

Posted 17/02/2022 16:58:30



Lent begins on Wednesday March 2nd
Lent may originally have followed Epiphany, just as Jesus’ sojourn in
the wilderness followed immediately on his baptism, but it soon became
firmly attached to Easter, as the principal occasion for baptism and for the reconciliation of those who had been excluded from the Church’s fellowship for apostasy or serious faults. This history explains the characteristic notes of Lent – self-examination, penitence, self-denial, study, and preparation for Easter, to which almsgiving has traditionally been added.
