The proclamation of the date of easter on epiphany in the year 2010

THE PROCLAMATION OF THE DATE OF EASTER ON EPIPHANY
IN THE YEAR 2010
Dear brothers and sisters, the glory of the Lord has shone upon us,
and shall ever be manifest among us, until the day of his return.
Through the rhythms of times and seasons
let us celebrate the mysteries of salvation.
Let us recall the year’s culmination, the** Easter Triduum of the Lord:
his last supper, his crucifixion, his burial, and his rising celebrated
between the evening of the **first of April

and the evening of the fourth of April.
Each Easter— as on each Sunday—
the Holy Church makes present the great and saving deed
by which Christ has for ever conquered sin and death.
From Easter are reckoned all the days we keep holy.
Ash Wednesday, the beginning of Lent, will occur on the seventeenth of February.
[In those places where Ascension is observed on Thursday:
The Ascension of the Lord will be commemorated on the thirteenth of May*.]
[In those places where observance of the Ascension is transferred to the Seventh Sunday of Easter:
**The Ascension of the Lord will be commemorated on the **sixteenth of May
.]
**Pentecost
, the joyful conclusion of the season of Easter,
will be celebrated on the **twenty–third of May
.
And this year the First Sunday of **Advent
* will be on the twenty–eighth of November.
Likewise the pilgrim Church proclaims the Passover of Christ
in the feasts of the Holy Mother of God, in the feasts of the Apostles and Saints,
and in the commemoration of the faithful departed.
To Jesus Christ, who was, who is, and who is to come,
Lord of time and history,
be endless praise, for ever and ever.
R/. Amen. [Amen. Amen.]

Although calendars now give the date of Easter and the other feasts in the liturgical year for many years in advance, the Epiphany proclamation still has value. It is a reminder of the centrality of the resurrection of the Lord in the liturgical year and the importance of the great mysteries of faith which are celebrated each year.

It is a great practice to keep up because it reminds us that everything points to the Paschal Mystery.

For the first time i heard this proclamtion at mass today. I like it because it helps me remember dates. I know that Ash Wednesday falls after Valentine day and Easter is at the beginning of April.

I had a poll on this but it disappeared. Today, my pastor surprised me by having the proclamation read at Mass. It was wonderful! Yee-haw!!!

Today was the first time I ever heard this proclaimed at Mass. Our new pastor is awesome!

Our parish did not hear the proclamation this year.
