In what is arguably the most beautiful Mass of the church year, I attended the Easter Vigil last evening. Not only does this Mass celebrate the resurrection of Jesus Christ – the basis for Christianity – it also welcomes adult converts into the Church.
Twenty-four years ago, I was one of those adults. I love watching as others go through this public proclamation of faith. This year was particularly special as a good friend’s husband became a Catholic.
Have a blessed Easter. If you are a Jewish friend, I do hope your Passover celebration last week was as special.
