CCDictionary ^ | 12-05-14 | Fr. John Hardon's Modern Catholic Dictionary

Featured Term (selected at random:



The fifty-six days from Holy Saturday to Vespers on the Saturday following Pentecost. It corresponds to the time of rejoicing that the risen Jesus spent with his followers on earth and the nine days he told them to wait for the coming of the Holy Spirit. Liturgically it is a period of joy: white vestments are used, the Gloria is said at ferial Masses, the Te Deum is daily chanted, Vidi Aquam and the Regina Coeli replace the Asperges and the Angelus. Every Catholic is to receive the Holy Eucharist during this period.
