Reflection of the Week

It is Easter! Today is a day of great joy for us as Catholics. The joy is reflected all around us in the way that people are dressed, in the way they approach Mass on this day. They key for us today is to carry that joy away from Mass to our celebrations and our lives. We hear about similar joy in today’s Gospel from St. John. When Mary of Magdala goes to the tomb and discovers it empty, she does not walk leisurely back to tell the others. She runs, filled with excitement and with the same joy we must feel. Joy is contagious. That is what we need to spread when we go forth on this glorious day.

Easter for us should be an encounter with the Risen Lord. We are to share the Good News. That is what Mary of Magdala does. Perhaps we have a difficult time talking about the joy we feel at Easter and at other times in the Church. We should not be hesitant; sharing the joy is part of being a disciple of Christ; it is what makes us an “Easter people.”

All of the Gospels tell of the Resurrection of Christ. They may differ in some details, but they all agree that Christ is Risen. When His Apostles go forth to spread the Good News, they speak of His Resurrection, not the empty tomb. That is what we need to do, what we need to share — the Easter joy of being a Catholic and a Christian.

TREASURES FROM OUR TRADITION Easter is nearly three weeks later this year than last. Why does the date wobble around the calendar so? The way of calculating the date was set by the Emperor Constantine in 325. The decision ended a very bitter controversy in the church. Some people wanted to synchronize the Pasch with Passover on the fourteenth day of the Jewish month Nissan, and their opponents wanted it after the Passover was complete, on the Sunday after the first full moon of springtime. The ecclesiastical rules do not exactly connect with the astronomical rules. The emperor squashed the hopes of the quartodecimans, as the fans of 14 Nissan were called, and chose Sunday. The traditional rule is that Easter is the first Sunday after the first ecclesiastical full moon that occurs on or after the vernal equinox, the fourteenth day of the new moon, and later than March 21. Thus, Easter wobbles between March 22 and April 25.

The actual tables and methods for computing the date are extraordinarily detailed, with subtle variations and mind-bending exceptions and charts with “golden numbers,” “dominical letters,” and “epacts” measuring leap years. In 1954 and 1962 the

ecclesiastical calculations actually overrode the astronomical new moons and bumped Easter back a month! Today, there is a movement in the World Council of Churches (Protestants and Orthodox) for all Christians to combine their celebrations, based on the star charts for the Jerusalem skies. In principle, the Catholic Church is open to an ecumenical agreement on a fixed date for Easter, but we desire a unanimous decision from the World Council.

Hace 3,000 años los chinos pintaban huevos de pato para celebrar la primavera. Los egipcios pintaban huevos en honor de la diosa Ishtar, mientras ingleses y alemanes lo hacían para celebrar al sol. Eventualmente la práctica continuó en honor de la resurrección de Cristo.

La costumbre de esconder huevos hervidos y pintados ha tomado nueva vida entre los mexicamericanos. Cada

Cuaresma mi mamá solía guardar los cascarones de los huevos que nos comíamos. Recuerdo con alegría la costumbre de colorear los cascarones el Sábado de Gloria para que la coneja nos los escondiera para la Pascua. Al día siguiente, después de Misa nos reuníamos a buscar

cascarones y romperlos sobre la cabeza de quien se arrimara, para bañarlos con el confeti multicolor.

La costumbre de celebrar la Pascua con cascarones decorados es una bella tradición. Esta costumbre muestra que todas las naciones pueden agregar a la Iglesia cristiana tradiciones propias de su cultura, ya que Jesucristo dio su vida por todas ellas. Es justo celebrar la Resurrección del autor de la vida con símbolos de fecundidad y todos los colores del gozo.
