No matter which translation we read, we celebrate God's love for us at Easter.
Eastertide is the period of fifty days from Easter Sunday to Pentecost Sunday.
It is celebrated as a single joyful feast, indeed as the "great Lord's Day". Each Sunday of the season is treated as a Sunday of Easter, and, after the Sunday of the Resurrection, they are named Second Sunday of Easter, Third Sunday of Easter, etc. up to the Seventh Sunday of Easter, while the whole fifty-day period concludes with Pentecost Sunday.Read more ...

There we will receive his mercy, and we will find grace to help us when we need it most.

He cares deeply! Enough to endure the Cross for our sins.Read more ...
