Easter Calc step 2

On March 20th we marked the vernal equinox, last night we saw the full moon that marks Passover, the second marker used for our calculation of Easter. On the Sunday after the full moon, after the equinox, we celebrate the Ressurection, new and eternal life.

Today is the last full day of Lent. Lent officially ends when we begin the Triduum, tomorrow evening with the Mass of the Lord's (not Last) Supper.

How will you spend this last day of Lent? Perhaps return to where we began: prayer, fasting, alms-giving.
