The Easter Proclamation, the Exultet, declares “O happy fault that earned so great, so glorious a Redeemer!” This statement expresses the ancient Christian belief that the human race is better off after the fall of Adam and Eve because God in His great love for us chose to redeem us in a way that would allow us to share in the very life of the most Holy Trinity. By Jesus’ giving of Himself for us on the Cross we are given the chance of attaining everlasting life and a share in His own glory. By dying and rising with Christ in Baptism we become true daughters and sons of God. Each year throughout the Church, men and women embrace our faith through the reception of the Sacraments of Initiation, Baptism, Confirmation and Holy Eucharist. These sacraments are rightly called the Easter sacraments because they draw the new believer and all of us directly into Christ’s Passion and Resurrection. In Baptism, they die with Christ so that they may rise with Him. In Confirmation, they receive the fullness of the Holy Spirit that enables them to proclaim the Resurrection. In the Eucharist, they receive the foretaste of that eternal life one for us on the Cross. As we rejoice today with the newly baptized, we recall that in rising with Christ all of us are accepting the vocation of living as a “Resurrection People”. As such we have the responsibility of carrying the good news to others just as St. Peter did. We too are to testify that Jesus “is the one appointed by God as judge of the living and the dead.” We do this of course not by preaching but by the way we live our lives each day. Christ’s victory over evil has given each one of us the power to resist evil and to perform acts of true charity. Thus, by following Christ’s example and always seeking to do the Father’s will, we can be a transforming and life giving presence in the world and, with God’s help, truly make things better.

FATHER THOMAS HAMM, JR. PASTOR

APRIL 16, 2017________ REJOICE AND BE GLAD

“This is the day the Lord has made; let us rejoice and be glad” (Psalm 118:24). Let us remember that these words of today’s responsorial psalm are not only sung from the hearts of those gathered in our parish. They are also sung by the poor in tiny barrios throughout Central and South America. They are sung by those denied religious freedom in our world; these Christians lift their voices in clandestine places of worship. These words are sung by people who have lost loved ones to acts of terrorism and war around the globe. Even in the midst of conflict and division, Christians still come together to declare that poverty, loneliness, violence, and division will never, ever have as much power as the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus Christ. Indeed, let us rejoice this day and be glad! Copyright © J. S. Paluch Co., Inc. PLEASE EXTEND A WARM WELCOME to Father Marty Holler (retired from FATHER TOM is receiving physical and occupational therapy at Athens County) who has graciously come to have our Holy Week and Easter Bishop Joseph H.

Easter is nearly three weeks later this year than last. Why does the date wobble around the calendar so? The way of calculating the date was set by the Emperor Constantine in 325. The decision ended a very bitter controversy in the church. Some people wanted to synchronize the Pasch with Passover on the fourteenth day of the Jewish month Nissan, and their opponents wanted it after the Passover was complete, on the Sunday after the first full moon of springtime. The ecclesiastical rules do not exactly connect with the astronomical rules. The emperor squashed the hopes of the quartodecimans, as the fans of 14 Nissan were called, and chose Sunday. The traditional rule is that Easter is the first Sunday after the first ecclesiastical full moon that occurs on or after the vernal equinox, the fourteenth day of the new moon, and later than March 21. Thus, Easter wobbles between March 22 and April 25. The actual tables and methods for computing the date are extraordinarily detailed, with subtle variations and mind-bending exceptions and charts with “golden numbers,” “dominical letters,” and “epacts” measuring leap years. In 1954 and 1962 the ecclesiastical calculations actually overrode the astronomical new moons and bumped Easter back a month! Today, there is a movement in the World Council of Churches (Protestants and Orthodox) for all Christians to combine their celebrations, based on the star charts for the Jerusalem skies. In principle, the Catholic Church is open to an ecumenical agreement on a fixed date for Easter, but we desire a unanimous decision from the World Council. —Rev. James Field, Copyright © J. S. Paluch Co.
