Christ the Lord is Risen Today!

We walked from Katie's apartment to and from the Cathedral last night, in the rain.  It was a stunning Mass celebrated by the Archbishop, and I was so excited to see the 30 or so new members of the Church.

This morning, the kids are sleeping in because we were up way too late.  When they get up, they have to answer a couple of Catholic doctrine questions (from the Catholic Doctrine Playing Cards, of course!) to get clues to the location of their Easter baskets.

I think we're going to eat sugar, drink coffee, eat more sugar, and then eat ham and fall asleep, resting in the knowledge that our Lord is risen indeed.

Happy Easter!

Jesus Christ is risen today, Alleluia!
Our triumphant holy day, Alleluia!
Who did once, upon the cross, Alleluia!
Suffer to redeem our loss, Alleluia!
Hymns of praise then let us sing, Alleluia!
Unto Christ, our heavenly King, Alleluia!
Who endured the cross and grave, Alleluia!
Sinners to redeem and save, Alleluia!
But the pain which He endured, Alleluia!
Our salvation hath procured, Alleluia!
Now above the sky He's king, Alleluia!
Where the angels ever sing, Alleluia!
Sing we to our God above, Alleluia!
Praise eternal as His love, Alleluia!
Praise Him, all you heavenly host, Alleluia!
Father, Son, and Holy Ghost, Alleluia!
