Easter, Year B
April 4-May 23, 2021
An empty tomb astonishes Mary Magdalene and the other disciples on Easter morning, and Jesus is soon discovered in the community, alive and present in a new way, especially in the “breaking of the bread”. Easter Sunday begins a season of fifty days celebration of Jesus’ new life. The season ends with Pentecost Sunday, when Jesus sends the Spirit to guide and challenge the church. Festival colors are worn through the season until the last day: Pentecost, when the color is red for the Spirit’s fire.
