Online Resources for the Easter Season

for Catholic, Orthodox, and Protestant Christians 

 

 

Resurrection - Easter SeasonLent and Holy Week have passed, we have celebrated the institution of the Eucharist and have marveled at the Risen Lord on Easter Sunday. Now as Christians enter the Easter Season, we are called to deepen and extend our celebration of Christ's resurrection, ascension, and the sending of the Holy Spirit at Pentecost.  The early Church celebrated the Resurrection for a full fifty days, from Easter Sunday through the Feast of Christ's Ascension forty days later and then another ten days until the feast of the descent of the Holy Spirit at Pentecost.

 

During Lent many of us have developed the habit of reading more scripture or writings from the Early Church Fathers, this Easter Library section is the perfect way of continuing this during Eastertide.   Protestant, Catholic, and Eastern Orthodox should come together in this paschal season of Eastertite to proclaim together the victory of Jesus Christ over sin and death and nourish their faith by contact with vibrant resources from the earliest days of the Church.

 

This Easter Season we will be adding even more wonderful and inspiring articles from Dr. Marcellino D’Ambrosio, The Early Church Fathers, Doctors of the Church and others, so be sure to check back often to discover new insight into your Christian faith.
