Throughout the Easter Octave we celebrate the one day of Easter. That means that today is Easter Day, just as Sunday was. We have eight days in which to let this sink in, but for now most of us are probably a little tired, a little overwhelmed by all we have been celebrating. Joy can be as exhausting as grief. So, here is an exquisite image of Christ and the Three Marys to meditate on, and for techie types who would like the Regina Caeli anthem for their mobile (cellphone) ringtone, here is a downloadable version in mp3 to fit most types of phone. (For newer versions of the iPhone you will need an m4r file, easily made from an mp3 file.) Adjust volume to suit. I made the ringtone from a file that proclaimed it was available freely to download and use, but if I have inadvertently infringed anyone’s copyright, please let me know.
