“The Pascha joy cannot take root in one short day. The Saturday vigil is not enough. Pascha Sunday is not enough. We must not go back to our normal lives. We needed forty days to really soak in Lent. We need forty days to soak in the resurrection. We need this season to sing in the shower, “Christ is Risen”, to greet everyone at work and the supermarket, “Christ is Risen,” to look at the sky and flowers and wonder, “Christ is Risen”, and to anticipate the eternal banquet in all our food, drink, family, and life.”
