Easter Wednesday

Christ is risen! Not only does the church celebrate that mystery for 50 days, the first eight (Easter’s Octave) are celebrated with the status of Easter Day. Jesuit James Hanvey considered both “the mystery and strangeness of the Resurrection.” Of its strangeness he noted:
The Resurrection is the great scandal at the heart of our faith. It is God’s work done, not in some flash of blinding glory, but when no one was looking. ...It is a work which changes everything, even the way in which we now know God.
