One of the most beautiful things about being a Catholic is that every day is a feast of sorts. We, the Church Militant, constantly live in the world but not of it, with our eyes turned towards the life after this one. We see the world through a special set of eyes, enlightened by our faith and the beauty within it. While Easter is just one day out of the year for the majority of people, one that's gone as soon as the clock strikes midnight the day after, the Church has an entire season of Easter, with the first week appropriately called Bright Week. After living an entire 40 days of fasting, penitence, and almsgiving, the light of Christ's resurrection blinds our dimmed eyes and warms our weary souls. He has Risen! And so have we. Bolstered by Christ's grace and the knowledge of our salvation, the faithful are armed with renewed spirit and go forth into the world joyfully. This kind of grace cannot possibly be reserved for a mere 24 hours! Our hearts are too full to bursting to not "go out and share the good news." The Church has given us the gift of Bright Week and the following Easter season in order that we may more fully experience the felicity the knowledge of Christ's resurrection and our salvation gives us, as well as giving us a special opportunity to share that with our family, friends, and community. It's a season for a reason! Spend extra time with your family, pray a rosary together, or light a candle on your family altar for someone who could use some extra prayers. Enjoy a post-Easter feast with friends and share the love of Christ with your community through kind words and a generous heart. He is Risen! Let us live in the light that we have been waiting for for so long, so that when we die, we may experience that blinding joy in the fullest manner possible. Christus Ressurexit! Alleluia!
