A Letter from Fr. John
What do to these 40 Days?02-07-2016Fr. John Bonavitacola
This Wednesday we crash into Lent having just put away the Christmas decorations. Easter comes early this year (March 27) for that same reason it comes late some years. The date of Easter is not fixed like Christmas but calculated much the same way that Passover was calculated in the first century. Easter for the Catholic world is the Sunday following the first full moon after the vernal equinox. So for instance this year the first day of spring in the Northern hemisphere is March 19/20. The first full moon occurs on March 23 and the following Sunday is March 27 therefore Easter. If there had been a full moon on March 18 we would have had to wait another lunar cycle for the next full moon and that would push Easter into the middle of April.READ MORE
