    Happy Easter! May those of you who have fasted, feast well today! ;)

    I am deciding what to have for breakfast! I think cheese on vita weats, vanilla coffee and a little Easter egg! I have a parcel from home waiting for me! (It's just past midnight, Easter Sunday for me, so I'll wait a few hours still :lol:)

    He is risen!

    I went to the vigil at St Patrick's Cathedral; it was so beautiful. It starts out with all the lights extinguished, of course, and I got the shivers when the candles were lit. 6 people were baptized at the mass and got a huge round of applause when it was done.
    When the mass was over, a whole posse of people practically stormed the altar to snap pictures of Cardinal Dolan. :eek: What's up with that? I could understand if it had been the Pope. (Though I personally would be too intimidated to snap a photo of him) By all accounts Dolan is a very congenial man and an excellent Archbishop, but why would anyone take his photo when they can see him in person at mass every week? It's not like he's some recluse who only turns up in church on Christmas and Easter. :lol:
    Happy Easter, everyone!

    Perhaps the people taking the pictures only show up for Christmas and Easter! ;)

    Possibly, but then why would they want his photo? They probably didn't even know who he was. :lol:

    Marge - is it because he'll soon be moving to Rome? I thought there was a new job along with his "elevation" to Cardinal.

    Hapoy Easter! We had one person baptized at the Easter Vigil. It was great! She held her nose when the priest dunked her 3 times, and got a big, enthusiastic round of applause. He told us later, "She told me she was afraid I wouldn't hold onto her when she went under the water, and I said, 'Me, too!' ":lol: He went on to talk about holding onto one another and how of course God is the one holding onto all of us. It was all very sweet and touching.

    Happy Easter everyone!

    The deal with my family is that they come to Christmas and Easter service with me. The rest of the year, I'm okay going by myself.

    So on Thursday, my husband and son join me at the church for the community dinner (it was the first time we had tried it out) and as we were eating, the minister sits down with us, and asks my 11-year-old if he'll join her and three other kids at the front of the church, before communion, and do a short reading.

    Now, my son professes to be an atheist (and I respect that, he's got his own journey to take) but he can't refuse an offer to do some public speaking. So this morning, he'll be right up there in the front of the church. Close friends of ours who are also members of the church have no idea this will happen, and I can't wait to see their faces.

    So far there have been no comments from my son about how he may be struck by lightning when he's up at the altar. :lol:

    So my atheist son is actively participating in the Easter service. The Lord surely does work in wonderful and mysterious ways.
