A Case of the Easter Mondays

Today is Easter Monday!

Yes, Easter is a 50 Day season and today is the first weekday of that season. Each day of the week during the week after Easter is marked out for special emphasis.

Mondays aren’t often considered good days. We are usually headed back to school or work after a weekend off. But this Monday is different. This is the Monday that Jesus was walking around alive again, showing himself to his disciples and beginning to demonstrate his living self to the five hundred people he would appear to.

Easter Monday is a reminder that every day is full of the power of Christ. No day is pointless. Jesus fills them all.

So, since it is Easter Monday, an awesome holiday, I’ve put together a list of posts on Easter from Anglican Pastor and Rookie Anglican that you may have missed. I’ll also add some other recent posts, for those who may be off work for Spring Break – or who want to sneak a reading break into your Monday work schedule.

Check it out, and have a Happy Monday!

    Easter is actually a 40 day season, ending on Ascension Day (May 10 this year). The Paschal candle should be extinguished following the Gospel reading on Ascension Day. Ascensiontide is a 10 day season ending on Whitsunday.

      Thank you. There are several ways to mark Easter rather than the idea that there is only one exact correct reckoning. The 50 Day approach includes the Ascension.
