The Holly and Lily Crowd On observing the larger numbers for Easter one pastor wisecracked, “I have to apologize to all of you about all the lilies in Church. I wanted to get poinsettas, so it would look just like it did last time you were here…” PatheosDwight2007-04-09T09:51:00-04:00April 9th, 2007|Categories: Patheos|4 Comments Share This Story, Choose Your Platform!

In this post-Christian age, and when so many Christians are post-Church, I’m just really grateful they’re there. The mystery of God’s grace works in souls. They are engaged with the two great salvific acts of God–Incarnation and Resurrection. Praise God.Woe to all of us when that little flame goes out. Fr.

My own comment after Mass was, ‘We are so glad you are here to celebrate the resurrection of Christ. Remember we celebrate his resurrection here every Sunday, and you are welcome to join us.” Mephibosheth April 9, 2007 at 11:23 pmLog in to Reply Our men’s choir had to ditch an 8-part “Christus resurrexit” anthem we were working on, too much too fast…and we replaced it with a Gloria we used at Christmas…so I imagine some of the ChrEaster people might have thought we know only one anthem!
