As always on Feast Day threads, feel free to discuss relevant issues, share favourite prayers, stories, jokes and hymns. It might be useful, too, to use this thread as a “catch-up” on news, although, hopefully, we’ll get back into the swing of topic threads as soon as possible – which reminds me to thank those who kindly sent suggestions for topics and even some video clips; much appreciated.
Happy Easter everyone!
