Happy Passover!



I pray a happy Passover for our Jewish brothers and sisters!

Passover begins at sundown on Tuesday, April 19, and will continue for 7 days until Monday, April 25.

For a quick overview of Passover, take a look here.

Over at  To Bend Light, Alden Solovy offers us some beautiful Passover prayers which I heartily commend to your attention and your own prayer.

I've been pleased to post on this page a number of Alden's "prayers from a Jewish heart" and I take this opportunity to wish Alden and his family a happy and healthy Passover. 



Catholic Christians keep their celebration of Passover in the Paschal Triduum which begins at sundown this Thursday, April 21 with the celebration of the Evening Mass of the Lord's Supper and ends with Evening Prayer on Easter Sunday, April 24.

Dear Pastor Fleming
Two years ago my wife passed away the Sabbath before Passover. This has become a season of great reflection, memory and love for my daughters and me. And we are reclaiming the joy of the season. We thank you for the Passover blessing, your loving support of my work and send our prayers for awe and wonder this Holy Week to you, your loved ones, your parish and your entire community.
B'shalom,
Alden
