Archdiocese of Denver Lent and Easter 2014 Archdiocese of Denver Lent and Easter en-us Copyright 2014 Thu, 24 Apr 2014 15:20:21 MST Archdiocese of Denver Lent and Easter BREAKING OPEN THE WORD: Divine Mercy Sunday [April 15, 2012]

April 11, 2012 - In some Protestant churches, the Sunday after Easter is (unofficially) known as “Low Sunday” because Easter Day has priority—and because relatively few people attend church that day. But for us as Catholics, Easter is celebrated seven whole weeks. Every Sunday is special because it highlights a different aspect of the resurrection. This Sunday focuses on God’s mercy.

BREAKING OPEN THE WORD: Easter Sunday [April 8, 2012]

April 4, 2012 - Our faith in the resurrection begins with the testimony of the apostles and ends with our own experience of Christ. The testimony of the apostles can take one a certain distance along the path of faith, but it’s our own personal encounter with the risen Lord through Scripture, prayer and the sacraments that we come to believe.
