Do not abandon yourselves to despair. We are the Easter people and hallelujah is our song.
--Pope John Paul II (1920-2005)

Our early Easter... (here's some interesting trivia)
* This year is the earliest Easter any of us will ever see the rest of our lives! The next time Easter will be this early (March 23) will be the year 2228 (220 years from now).
* The last time it was this early was 1913 (so if you're 95 or older, you are the only ones that were around for that!)
* The next time it will be a day earlier (March 22) will be in the year 2285 (277 years from now). The last time it was on March 22 was 1818. So, no one alive today has or will ever see it any earlier than this year!
