HAPPY HOLY DAYS

The Easter / Passover Holidays are a refreshment both physical and spiritual. That’s what I said on the House floor before the Legislature adjoined for the long Holiday weekend.

People work long and hard in their vocations, including the marvelous albeit - sometimes difficult - vocation of tending to family. Physical refreshment is good. Spiritual refreshment is even better. It’s important to recognize that the word “Holiday” derives from “Holy Day.”

For Christians, Easter tells us that pain, suffering, and death are never the last words. My Church bulletin today, it adds, “Our task as Christians is to believe in spite of all that we see in the world around us.” In the Judaic tradition, Passover commemorates the freedom of the Israelites from slavery in ancient Egypt, being allowed to fully participate in their faith, and more.

The common denominator between Easter and Passover Holidays is recognition of our dependence on God. Happy Holy Days!
