Second Sunday of Easter - April 16, 2023

Updated: May 8, 2023

May the words of my mouth and the meditations of each heart be pleasing to you, O God, my strength and my Redeemer. +

Good morning.

Was it really just last week that we celebrated a wonderful Easter vigil & two Easter morning services?

With a packed church.

With drums, bells, trumpets and cymbals,

lighted candles, huge displays of flowers and the choir leading everyone in glorious alleluias.

With plastic eggs covering the courtyard on a misty morning

that gave way to a perfect, sun-filled afternoon

for the bounty that was our parish picnic.

Was that really just a week ago?

Yes. That was only last week.

Which makes today an interesting Sunday in the church calendar.

Today, the second Sunday of Easter, has been officially dubbed as “Low Sunday.” Typically, there are fewer people, less hoopla.
