    Love it! We went to the contemporary service, per usual, and while that usually works (my youngest – age 12 – couldn’t sit still or be quiet to save her life, so it never works to sit in a more quiet traditional service), I really missed the old-school Easter hymns this year. There’s something about Hallelujah Chorus, He is Risen, etc etc on Easter morning. Hope you had a lovely Easter 🙂

      Thanks, Liz. Happy Easter! For me it was a High Mass, slightly bilingual but 80% non-English, crowded, and one or two bawling babes but no one cared. Palm Sunday was good, too (while staying in another city).

        Where on earth are you going to church? High Mass is a wow. I mean it’s a Wow.

        High Mass is definitely awesome. It’s not like every week. (Shouldn’t be hard to find one on Christmas or Easter–seems like the rule rather than the exception.) I’m like a mass gypsy (sometimes here, sometimes there, sometimes still another place) but this was my parish church where I was baptized and confirmed, a big congregation. It usually holds 5 separate weekend masses (including one casual style English language only mass–but that one is not on Easter, when they’re combined). Palm Sunday was at an historical church in a different city, also high mass, with palm branches, procession, incense, the whole deal. I didn’t know anyone there. I actually tend to prefer the out of the way, oddly scheduled masses on Saturday, where there are only a few people.
