Sunday Respite – Rosa Mystica

 

For this week I chose Michel Pepe – Rosa Mystica. Wishing everyone a wonderful day as we are finally moving ever closer to a “real” Spring here.
Eastertide
Eastertide is the period of fifty (50) days from Easter Sunday to Pentecost Sunday.  Each Sunday during this season of Eastertide is treated as a Sunday of Easter. They are named accordingly: Second Sunday of Easter, Third Sunday of Easter, Fourth Sunday of Easter and so forth until the Seventh Sunday which is named “Pentecost Sunday.”

 

 

 

Happy Easter – He is Risen!

He has risen indeed! Wishing everyone a wonderful day.

 

Holy Saturday – “Could We Start Again Please”

 

For Holy Saturday I have chosen a song from Jesus Christ Super Star. I have read that the show will be shown on Sunday evening at 8pm Eastern time. Not sure if it is the original or if the show has been redone.

 

Good Friday – ‘Jesus remember me’

 

A beautiful chant from Taizé, France, based on the words of one of the men crucified with Jesus, underscores a meditation on the face of Christ, his suffering, death and resurrection

Luke 23:42-43 New International Version (NIV)

42 Then he said, “Jesus, remember me when you come into your kingdom.[a]

43 Jesus answered him, “Truly I tell you, today you will be with me in paradise.”

Sunday Respite – Welcome to Spring

 

This week we celebrate on March 20 the Spring Equinox. For my Sunday Respite I chose “The Meaning of of the Spring Equinox.”  The notes say “An inspiring journey, set to beautiful music, into the history and current significance of the Spring Equinox”

I invite you to explore a relationship with the Christian tradition and many ancient and present religions, and their commonality. Among the Roman Catholic church and Protestant denominations, Easter Sunday falls on the first Sunday after the first full moon after MARCH-20, the nominal date of the Spring Equinox.

I offer you this video when you have some time for self-reflection.

Belsebuub & Angela Pritchard from Belsebuub expand upon the symbolic and spiritual significance of this time.

“…Throughout the world, the spring equinox is a time of great confrontation between the forces of darkness and light, in the death and resurrection of the central deities of sacred teachings throughout the world.

“It symbolizes what an initiate goes through in a definitive and important stage of self-realization, where the struggle between darkness and light creates the opposition needed to attain immortality. This is symbolized by the dark half of the year on one side of the spring equinox sun, and the light half of the year on the other…
