I must be the only person on the planet who does not like the Easter Vigil. :o I have attended Easter Vigils in at least ten OF parishes in two countries, so I know I’ve given it a fair shot. I have trouble believing it’s a problem at the parochial level because I’ve attended this Mass in so many different places and didn’t like any of them. So it must be me. I just don’t like it.
My current priest doesn’t understand this at all, underscoring the idea that I’m the problem. To him (and to most other people I’ve met), the Easter Vigil is the most beautiful Mass of the year.
The only reason I would attend the Easter Vigil now is if I’m serving it, and I do everything in my power to make sure that doesn’t happen.
That said, I would be willing to try the Easter Vigil in the EF.
In my current parish, it’s mostly solemn.
