Easter Vigil 2008

Posted by Ryan on March 22, 2008

The coolest and longest mass of the Catholic year officially begins the Easter celebration! 

So, what’s news about Easter Vigil Mass? 

Roman Catholics will tell you that there are Baptisms, First Communions, and Confirmations performed at this mass, along with fires, candles in the dark, Gregorian Chant-style readings and lots of Latin.  It’s also 2-3 hours depending on the amount of sacraments being performed.  Unlike the regular American Catholic Mass, it’s super-Medieval, which makes it the coolest mass of the year! 

However, some Vigil ceremonies are more unusual than others:  here’s a good start if you know what I’m getting at. 

To Magdi Allam: welcome to the faith!
