We should make Easter a forty-day celebration. If Lent is that long, Easter should be at least that long, all the way to Ascension. We should meet regularly for Easter parties. We should drink champagne at breakfast. We should renew baptismal vows with splashing water all over the place. And we should sing and dance and blow trumpets and put out banners in the streets. And we should invite the homeless people to parties and we should go around town doing random acts of generosity and celebration. We should be doing things which would make our sober and serious neighbors say, ‘What is the meaning of this outrageous party?’

Has anyone else experienced the custom of greeting people with three kisses on the cheeks with the coming of Easter?

cruce-signati asked: I used to be a High Church Anglican. Just cross the Tiber already, you know you want to! =P

I know I don’t want to become a Roman, I used to think that I was but a hair’s breadth away from becoming a Roman but now I’ve come to the conclusion that I really am a ‘Reformed Catholic’ there are errors, I believe, in current Roman thought.
