Greetings in the Name of the Risen Christ,
With the approach of the holiest Feast in the Catholic Liturgy, we are reminded of Canon Law # 920 where it states:
920 §1. "After being initiated into the Most Holy Eucharist, each of the faithful is obliged to receive holy communion at least once a year."
920 §2. "This precept must be fulfilled during the Easter season unless it is fulfilled for a just cause at another time during the year."
The Easter Obligation is not just a matter of going to Mass on Easter Sunday or during the Eastertide that lasts from Easter Sunday to Pentecost Sunday. It is an obligation to be an active participant in your Church by attending Holy Mass on holy days and Sundays, going to Confession on a regular basis and receiving the Holy Eucharist at least during Easter.
This is the month when millions of Catholics will cleanse their soul in order to reinstate their personal relationship with the Lord Jesus Christ. The state of grace that they enjoyed when they received the Sacrament of Baptism, it shall be returned to them. Such is a time to celebrate with great joy.
Let us pray for those who need the strength to move forward in their spiritual lives by fulfilling their Easter obligation.
