In the historical church calendar (also called the liturgical calendar) Easter is not limited to a single Sunday, but it is a joyful season extending from Resurrection Sunday all the way to Pentecost. Celebrating the 40 days that our resurrected Savior opened the scriptures to His apostles before His Ascension, as well as the following days leading up to the promised arrival of His Holy Spirit.
May you continue to celebrate the resurrection of our Risen Lord throughout the entire Easter Season, growing closer to Him through the reading of His Word.
