Faith Fact: Day of the Sun

The date of Easter changes each year, following this formula: Easter falls on the first Sunday after the first full moon after the vernal equinox. Easter, regardless of the date, always falls on a Sunday.

This month, as we celebrate Palm Sunday, along with Easter Sunday, we remember the importance of all Sundays. As Catholics, we are a people of the first day of the week.

In his homily on Easter Sunday, St. Jerome preached: “The Lord’s day, the day of Resurrection, the day of Christians, is our day. ... If pagans call it ‘the day of the sun’ we willingly agree, for today the light of the world is raised, today is revealed the sun of justice with his healing rays.”
