Easter Sunday with the Domestic Church

I miss our friends and extended family, but I must admit, one of the nice things about shelter-in-place is we attend Mass whenever John Paul falls asleep for a nap. It’s quite relaxing for me, given what a handful he’s become.

The kids did an Easter egg hunt in the snow (the teens take charge of the egg stuffing and hiding), painted a window “stained glass” (using acrylic paint and tape). We are relaxing as it snows (in spite of it being 60 yesterday) and watching a family movie. We baked a ham for lunch and Dylan is making prime rib for dinner. We are feasting!!!!

For anyone out there who forgot to plan crafts, activities or a special feast for Easter, don’t be hard on yourself. There’s a season for everything in life and if you really want to celebrate in this season, there’s still plenty of time! The Easter Season lasts 50 days!!!!!! So, don’t reserve all your celebrating for Easter Sunday. Rejoice!!! As our priest, Father Don, reminded us during Easter Mass, “Nothing can keep us from God, not even death itself.” We have so much to rejoice about! Alleluia!

I hope and pray you’re all having a blessed Easter!

Oh death, where is your victory? Where, oh death, is your sting? 1 Corinthians 15:55

Happy Easter! Alleluia!

I hate electronics on the main floor. But my goodness, does God have a sense of humor! Here’s our tv that we use to participate in Mass on the big screen. https://m.youtube.com/watch?feature=youtu.be&v=LxlYnv6CrlQ
Dylan accidentally startled the kids by shaking holy water on them as Father Don blessed us from the camera (through our tv screen). A miracle in itself we still have holy water after this long Lent!

Marley helped Mo get ready and go egg hunt. (She also hid the eggs and stuffed a lot of them.)
We used acrylic paint to make a “stained glass” window. It says “permanent” and I’ve read it comes off of windows, but if not, at least we don’t have to invest in a curtain/blinds there before my homebirth.

Alleluia! Christ is risen! Jesus, I trust in you!
