Oh Happy Day!

Oh Happy Day!
Some years ago, a Gospel song made the top 10 charts, it was called “Oh Happy Day.” The refrain of the song is, “Oh happy day, oh happy day, when Jesus washed my sins away.” The “happy day” is Good Friday, because that is the day when Jesus brings salvation to humanity by His Passion and death on the cross. But for Christians, there is an even happier day, the day when He is risen: Easter Sunday. As Catholic Christians, we are, of course, a people of the Eucharist, and a people of the living Word of God. But primarily, we are an Easter...

The first photograph of the cloth was taken in 1898, and to everyone’s amazement, it revealed that the image was something akin to a photographic negative, whic...

Here’s When Easter Officially Ends
Catholics recognize Easter — when Jesus Christ rose from the dead after sacrificing his life for all of humanity — as the first Sunday after the first full moon on or after the spring equinox. But, as it turns out, they can continue saying “Happy Easter” into May or, in some years, into June. Easter lasts for a total of 50 days, from Easter Sunday until the feast of Pentecost, when the Holy Spirit came upon the apostles, Mary, and the first followers of Christ.  This year, 2024, Easter was on March 31 and runs until Pentecost Sunday, ...
