Easter Octave questions!

Easter Octave questions!

6:18: What is an Octave? Why is Easter an Octave?

14:21: (1) When the resurrected Jesus appeared to his chosen followers, they didn’t recognize him. Do you think he didn’t have his same face? (2) Why do you think Jesus’ followers didn’t recognize Him immediately at the tomb, the road to Emmaus, by the shore of the Tiberius while fishing? Is there a deeper spiritual meaning?

24:33: When was Divine Mercy Sunday established? Had we as a church recognized the divine mercy before St. Faustina? Is Divine Mercy Sunday mentioned in the Bible?

40:09: Why is the Easter season 50 days long? Is 50 another symbolic number in the Bible?

47:20: Are priests hearing confessions online?

50:45: Fr. Dave is such an expressive speaker! Part Italian?

Easter Is Not Over | Busted Halo

“This week during what the Church calls the Octave of Easter we will hear stories of the Risen Jesus walking and talking and eating and being touched by his friends. We will meet people stumbling in doubt and confusion and grasping at vague hope.”

Like the crocuses bravely pushing up from my snow-covered garden, the Resurrection has broken the canceling grip of what is cold and cruel and final.

Today, Good Friday, we reflect on Jesus’s final cry to his father while on the cross, “My God, my God, why have you abandoned me?” One writer compares this moment to when she hears the infant cries of her own son, and how that transformed the way she thinks about turning to God in prayer.

Hope Builds: Rolling Away the Stone During an Easter That Looks Different | Busted Halo

“That’s what Easter can be this year. As the stone is rolled away, as the risen Jesus steps into the garden, we release our own steam; we depressurize. Christ takes it from us. And we go from burned to simmering, not quite ready for the feast but cooling, almost there.”

This Easter, when the stone is rolled away, the vast majority of us will still be confined to our homes. Our metaphoric tomb will not be empty, but likely quite full.

Your Essential Guide to the Triduum

The Triduum is a time to pray and reflect on the passion, death, and resurrection of Jesus Christ. As you approach the final days of Lent, now is a time you can pray and ask yourself important questions: How has God interceded in your life? What does the death of Jesus mean to you?

The Triduum is like a three-day prayer marathon. If you're a novice, this guide will help you understand the rituals and liturgies of the Triduum.

Fatherly Advice: Celebrating Holy Week at Home

This year’s Holy Week is definitely going to be unlike any other. While we may have been holding out hope for us to be able to celebrate together as we would do normally, it’s important to start planning for Holy Week at home.

Because of Covid-19, this Holy Week will be one like any other. Father Dave and Team Busted Halo discuss celebrating Holy Week at home and how to make it special.

Embracing Holy Week at Home | Busted Halo

Even though we’re unable to gather, reflect, and celebrate together, we’re still called to embrace the passion, death, and resurrection of Jesus. Check out our tips for observing Holy Week at home.

While nothing can replace the feeling of worshipping together with your parish community, you can still make the most of this special and sacred time at home with your family.

Imagining Holy Week | Busted Halo

You can still use Ignatian Prayer--the practice of imagining yourself in a text--to imagine yourself as part of this Sunday’s Palm Sunday celebration. Read how Brian Harper got more out of Palm Sunday when he saw himself as part of the story.

While Holy Week acknowledges events that took place 2,000 years ago, our faith is truly about what God is doing now.

Fr. Dave answers your Holy Week questions

Fr. Dave answers your Holy Week questions

2:21: Will Churches still give away palms this year?

6:10: Prayer Request: Prayer request for Michael! He's fighting Covid-19...as of today, he's breathing on his own and Dr is taking him off the ventilator today. Praying for complete healing.

6:56: I love Holy Week for all the rituals and building of the story of our faith. I just can’t see how I can partake in the rituals I love via live streaming. What will the washing of the feet look like? Or the procession and Adoration that takes place on Holy Thursday? And the Passion? My question is how can we embrace these rituals especially those of us who live alone. Live streaming adoration just doesn’t seem real to me - it’s a pretty picture of the Eucharist. I simply can’t imagine how Holy Week services will unfold.

25:10: What would you say to those in RCIA who will be delayed coming into the Church at Easter by the pandemic? I am sure this would be a huge disappointment to have this delayed. As someone who came into the Church as an adult, I know how special Easter Vigil is.

32:51: How old is the washing of the feet tradition?

34:44: Did God send this coronavirus? people need to start being nicer to each other.

41:49: Prayer Request: please pray for me, father -- Kresentia

41:58: Personally I think this Awful situation has gathered us in the world closer to God. I try to be constantly in prayer for the world with this virus. I love all the Masses and all the different priests and theologians that are helping all of us in this situation. Hope it continues even after this -- Lourdes

44:40: Would it be sacrilegious if we encouraged our confirmation students to do washing of the feet at home with their family?

46:57: Hi Father Dave! Will you be presiding on any Holy Week services that will be live streamed?

Enjoy the podcasts so much! So, here's what I'm doing during Lent. I actually feel blessed that I can stay isolated and not have to attend the many things on my calendar. I walk and say the rosary using the Rosario app. Then, I read the daily "Magnifcat" and the one-page inspirations in the Magnifact's supplement for Lent. Then I watch daily Mass with Bishop Barron. So, this has provided me with the time I've always wanted to have during Lent to concentrate on my faith. I also offer additional prayers for others and pray several prayers for "spiritual warfare" for my family. Then much later in the day, I watch a little TV.
Will Busted Halo be on in the near future????
How do we get our Catholic Leadership (Pope, Bishops, Pastors) to lead us in a Global Day of Prayer or a Global Novena (maybe the Rosary?) We shut down churches and masses but maybe we can pray together as a Global Society? Trump has called for a National Day of Prayer - LOVE it! Thought it would be great if we all could call on Pope Francis could do the same - writing letters and making calls!🙏
Ash selfie!!!
Brett, take your rosary to the mountain. You may need it.
Brett Siddall I thought of this movie when you discussed the stair machine - I was crying. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wixLlPFJgyQ😀

Question.... my office celebrates Diwalli. I feel uncomfortable and avoid the celebration by working from home every year. I am a manager (catholic), and am expected to be accepting of diversity. There is dancing, dressing in sori, food and a big celebration. I stopped going after I felt uncomfortable from the staff asking me to participate. Any suggestions?
