For many of us – it feels like Easter hasn’t really come. But for us liturgical Christians, Easter is still with us until Ascension Day. This 40 Day period between Easter and Ascension is important – both in the life of Christ and in our lives.

Quasimodo Sunday

“Quasimodo Sunday” from the first two words of the “Introit” at on the First Sunday after Easter based on 1 Peter 2:2:

Quasi modo geniti infantes, rationabile, sine dolo lac concupiscite ut in eo crescatis in salutem si gustastis quoniam dulcis Dominus.

or in English.

As newborn babes, alleluia, desire the rational milk without guile, alleluia, alleluia, alleluia. Rejoice to God our helper. Sing aloud to the God of Jacob.
