April 7th through April 15th

Rather than explain why I've been so quiet I'd thought I would just show you what we've been doing. Great Lent ended on April 6th. Holy Week began with Great and Holy Monday April 9th. Lazarus Saturday and Palm Sunday are festive feast days tucked between Lent and Holy Week. (I know it's "Wordless Wednesday" but I just can't seem to be wordless. We'll just have to settle for "less wordy". <grin>)

Lazarus Saturday

Lazarus Saturday began with a baptism! Lazarus Saturday foreshadows the resurrection of the Lord and our own resurrection.

I think the godfather is especially handsome. Biased? Yes, I suppose so.  Here Honeybear holds the candle for his godson.

After the Gospel reading.  Yes. It’s another picture of Honeybear. Notice the GOLD colored vestments?  NOT the purple of Lent.  Not the black of Holy Week.

Palm Sunday

On Palm Sunday the church is decorated with greenery and the priests and deacon wear green (or gold if they do not have green) vestments.

  2. "the little guy" as supergirl calls him has an amazing godmother. I have a very nice picture of godfather and godmother together. I need to get the pictures onto a disk or something to give you and Sarah.
