Today is one of the emptiest days of the year. No Mass, no Eucharistic adoration. And it is empty for another reason, too: this is the day Christ went among the dead to release the souls of the just. The land of shadows where they stayed until Christ\’s coming has been emptied. But soon all things will be filled with the fullness of Christ. Tonight we will have the celebration of the Easter Vigil, and the beginning of the glorious season of Easter, when we celebrate Christ\’s resurrection from the dead. May this blessed time fill you with the joy only Christ can give, and may you experience the mercy Christ is bestowing upon you today and every day!
