Happy Easter Monday!
Yes, Easter Monday is an actual holiday..no kidding. The idea was to get the post-Easter celebrations underway. This is found in the Roman Catholic and Eastern Orthodox religions. That’s why most Catholic schools are out today. But, I am still basking from yesterday and the celebration of Easter. I had such a wonderful day with family and friends, especially at Mass. We attended St. Augustine’s in Waikiki and it was just beautiful. First of all, the church is beautiful. Malia Zimmerman’s (of Hawaii Reporter) dad or grandfather designed the building. Secondly, Father Lane Akiona is simply the best. His message to a diverse group was inspiring and ecumenical. Plus, the choir was excellent and the Hula Halau which performed was so entertaining. But, just the sheer contemplation of the impact of the Passion culminating with His rising on Easter morning is nothing short of miraculous. I hope that you had a wonderful Easter, too, and that His blessings touch you and yours everyday.
