IMMACULATE HEART BULLETIN LOW SUNDAY 2021

Today, the Octave Day of Easter is known by many names. It is often called Low Sunday, because after the great ceremonies of Holy Week and Easter, the liturgy returns to a somewhat “lower” level of solemnity. It is also known as “Quasimodo Sunday” from the first words of the Introit. Another name is “Dominca in Albis Depositis.” In English, this is “Sunday for putting off the white.” This name refers to the fact that among the early Christians, the new converts who had been baptised at the Easter Vigil would have kept their white clothes throughout the octave and only returned to their normal attire today. In recent years of course, the most well known name of this Sunday is: Divine Mercy Sunday. In the Gospel we hear of the Institution of the Sacrament of Penance: “Whose sins you shall forgive, they are forgiven them.” Let us ever be grateful to our Lord for giving us this “second plank” after baptism to rescue us from our sins. Let us always make good use of this Sacrament! 

Wishing you a blessed and Happy Easter,

Canon Heppelle
