TITLE: “EASTER, PASSOVER, HOLI, NAVRUZ, ETC.: I ask for blessings for each of you!*” (UPDATE 2013)

INTRODUCTION

The word Easter derives from the word “Eostre”, the goddess of spring.  Previous to that Easter was called “Pasch” or Passover, which is still used in non-English languages. 

Easter is the time to escape winter and look forward to summertime. It also brings holy days. There are many all over the globe; four are predominant: the celebration of the Christian Easter, the Jewish Passover, the Hindu Holis and the Persian festival of Navruz. Although specific customs and traditions may differ, adherents embrace the fundamental notion of good over evil. In addition, the love of life is common to all. This holy day is when people partake of special foods at a big family meal; it is also a time for giving to loved ones. Furthermore, this is an opportunity for an individual renovation project of the person. My book of the week is “Holy Week: A Spiritual Guide from Palm Sunday to Easter” [Hardcover] by Emil Bock.  My bonus book for this week is The Passover Seder: The Art of Jewish Living Paperback] by Wolfson (Author) Hence, today’s topic is Easter and more. (Editor’s Note: This is part of a continuing series on holidays and special dates.)

MY LIFE & TIMES*

2013 Update: After the election of a new pope, there has been much talk about the future of the Roman Catholic Church.  I believe that Pope Francis I is a very humble man and down to earth; he takes care of the poor. I think that he has the strength to deal with the issues that have afflicted the church. This Easter, I hope and pray that our new pope will bring about the needed changes. His aim is also to bring everybody together no matter the religion – I think he can do this as he is a bridge builder.

Easter is the most important holiday of the Catholic calendar. This is the most religious day of the year when the faithful go to a special mass, praising Jesus Christ who has come to save our souls, rejoicing and giving thanks for his resurrection. It’s also the time for family gatherings. This coming Easter, my family will gather at my house for a big lunch.  I will attend mass early in the morning before finishing up last minute preparations for my family meal. 

I will also be celebrating Passover with my better half and his brother.  This year it occurs just before our Easter. It’s going to be hectic!

In last year’s update (2012), I noted the passing of my beloved mother. I miss her along with my dear father, who I lost previously. I think of them every day. Although their passing makes me sad, I feel blessed that I had them for as long as I did. I also believe that they are my angels looking out for me and my family. As you can imagine on Easter, I will take pause remembering my parents. In my heart, I know that they will be with us in spirit.

——————————————————————————————————————————————-

Easter is a very religious holy day for my family. In springtime, the Catholic holy week, starts with Palm Sunday. I attend early in order to buy palms (“la palma”) and olive branches; and at the beginning of the mass, the priest blesses them. Following the tradition, I give these palms and branches to loved ones. (Usually on Palm Sunday, this is the day to forgive and forget – that’s another of the lessons to be learned.) The week continues through to Easter Friday and Eastern Sunday (the day of the rising). It is important for me to attend Sunday mass on Easter morning. In the past, I went either with my daughters or alone; but today my better-half goes with me.  (He is not of the Catholic faith, but he accompanies me out of respect and I appreciate it.  My partner celebrates Passover.  I also accompany him on these high-holidays.)  Easter Monday is the day after the fact. 

It is a family Easter tradition that the family gets together for a big meal.  The children are given Easter chocolates. Without fail, it was a pleasant afternoon.  The atmosphere was always joyful.  It also gave us a chance to see each other. When my grandparents were alive, my parents, my aunts, uncles, cousins and myself visited them in the afternoon.  My grandmother had her usual baked goods. “La Colomba” was one of them. My mother did it next and then it was my turn. Now that my Mom is less mobile, I am arranging the feast that travels to her.

As well, I am now grappling with the combination of Easter and Passover. Since it usually occur overlaps, it is difficult for me to give two holiday dinner parties one after another.   I don’t always do it. However, it’s an aim and when I set my mind to do something, I do it! It’s not a turning away from our respective beliefs and customs, rather, it’s an enriching addition for both of us to share. Now that’s a good thought.  

THE AUTHOR: Emil Bock

Emil Bock (1895-1959), anthroposophist and theologian, was learned and pious. Bock, born in Barmen, Germany, studied languages at the University of Bonn. Then in 1914, after enlisting as a volunteer in the First World War and sent to the front in Flanders, he was wounded. In 1916, he met the theologian Friedrich Rittelmeyer, and from 1918 he studied Protestant theology in Berlin, graduating in 1921. He was one of the founders of the Christian Community in Switzerland. He had leadership qualities. He led the seminar of the Christian Community. Bock was incarcerated by the Nazis in the concentration camp Welzheim, yet survived; on being released, he lived under surveillance for the rest of the war. After the war, Bock was instrumental in the rebuilding of the community. In 1838, after the death of Rittelmeyer, he became the head of the community. This was a remarkable man; I was pleased to have learned about him. He was a prolific author. His book, “Holy Week: A Spiritual Guide from Palm Sunday to Easter” hits the spot this week.

THE (BONUS) BOOK:  The Passover Seder: The Art Of Jewish Living Paperback] By Wolfson (Author)

I want to learn about the Jewish faith. My significant other is Jewish. I want to learn about Passover. It’s an important religious date on the Jewish calendar. I want to learn how to do the holiday at home. It’s what a woman in love does in such a circumstance. This book offers an explanation of the biblical reasons for the holiday. It also talks about the Passover “Seder” the home ritual and ceremony. It also guides you how to observe and prepare for the holiday. For the uninitiated, this holiday has a “Haggadah” a special booklet with instructions and readings. Wolfson includes recounts Passover experiences of real families. The photos go beyond the words. I now know more about the rituals. The Q & A section adds to the understanding.  This year, we will start new family traditions. Let’s celebrate!

CONCLUSION

Throughout the world, the spring festival season, amongst others, comprises: the Christian Easter, the Hindu celebration of Holi, the Jewish observance of Passover and the Persian festival of Navruz.

Easter is the celebration of Jesus’ resurrection.  It is a time to repent, re-evaluate your life and do better. It is also a time to reconnect with family and friends with whom you’ve had a falling out.  Jews observe Passover, which commemorates the Hebrews’ exodus from the Egypt of the Pharoahs and escape from servitude. Easter and Passover are somewhat interconnected.  They both occur at approximately the same time. But there is more.  Jesus was Jewish and a rabbi.  It is controversial that the last supper could have been passover seder.  While the meaning of Easter and that of Passover are different they speak to being thankful for the sacrifices paid in our behalf and doing better as people.  The Hindus light bonfires in memory of the miraculous escape from the fires that young Prahlad, a staunch devotee of god Vishnu, escaped without any injuries due to his unshakable devotion. Navruz (Nowruz) marks the first day of spring and the beginning of the year in Iranian calendar.

Personal Comments

I say:

  • That unfortunately, Easter has, to a certain extent, lost its religious significance. 
  • That for some, it’s now become
    • an extended weekend to go on holiday. 
    • An excuse for family and friends to come together, have a nice meal and give out Easter eggs and chocolates.

The point

It is important to believe. Being a good person all year long is a good purpose. Recognizing the power of love and goodness is good for the soul. Many people today neglect to do so. Easter like Passover, Holi and Navruz are not just another day. Make them special and they will help make you SPECIAL. 

ANTOINETTE’S TIP SHEET*
Everyone should:
1. Believe;

2. Find your way to observe the holy days;

3. Connect with family and join with them in the celebration;

5. Take part in an Easter parade to celebrate the festivities;

4. Take this to read religious texts or at least spiritual material;

5. Be a good person; in this regard, strive to:
5.1 Be forgiving.

Happy holiday …. I wish for you and your loved ones good health, long life, prosperity, much love and joy.  “Buona Pasqua!*”

Take it out for a spin and tell me if you agree.

And that’s my thought of the week on books, what’s yours?*

ONE –A “S & R* CHOICE ANECDOTE *”

S & R* CHOICE ANECDOTE #1: Last Supper?
“Wilson Mizner was once married to Myra Moore Yerkes, an enormously wealthy woman who happened to own a multi-million-dollar art collection. One day Mizner, in desperate need of cash, pulled a depiction of The Last Supper from the living-room wall – and sold it.

His wife, understandably irate, demanded to know what had happened to the masterpiece. “Some masterpiece,” Mizner snorted. “I only got fifty bucks a plate!” (Source: Anecdotage) – http://www.anecdotage.com/index.php?aid=7126)

S & R* CHOICE ANECDOTE #2: Dustin Hoffman: Home for Passover
“After studying music for several years at Santa Monica City College and the Los Angeles Conservatory of Music, Dustin Hoffman, while visiting his aunt’s home for Passover, boldly announced his intention to become an actor. His aunt’s reply? “You can’t,” she said. “You’re not good-looking enough!” (Source: Anecdotage) – http://www.anecdotage.com/index.php?aid=19593)

S & R* CHOICE ANECDOTE #3: Patrick Pearse: Sticky Situation
“Sunday April 23rd, 1916, marked the first day of Patrick Pearse’s famous Easter Uprising in Dublin, Ireland. [Some sources say April 24th]. Things did not get off to an auspicious start:  

First, 10,500 of the 12,000 members of the Irish Volunteer Force, confused by a host of continually changing orders, failed to arrive. Nonetheless, Pearse welcomed those who had arrived, read out the “Proclamation of the Republic,” and ordered that copies of that manifesto be posted around the city. He was promptly informed that such a campaign would not be possible. Why not? The military council, it seemed, had forgotten to buy some glue!” (Source: Anecdotage) – http://www.anecdotage.com/index.php?aid=4258)

S & R* QUOTE #1: Pearl S. Buck
The person who tries to live alone will not succeed as a human being. His heart withers if it does not answer another heart. His mind shrinks away if he hears only the echoes of his own thoughts and finds no other inspiration.” (Source: Wisdom Quotes) – http://www.wisdomquotes.com/topics/life/index10.html) 

S & R* QUOTE #2: Victor Frankl

“We can discover this meaning in life in three different ways: (1) by doing a deed; (2) by experiencing a value; and (3) by suffering.” (Source: Wisdom Quotes) – http://www.wisdomquotes.com/topics/life/index10.html) 

S & R* QUOTE #3: Emily Dickinson

“If I can stop one heart from breaking,
I shall not live in vain.
If I can ease one life the aching,
Or cool one pain,
Or help one fainting robin
Unto his nest again,
I shall not live in vain.” (Source: Wisdom Quotes) – http://www.wisdomquotes.com/topics/life/index10.html)

TWO – “IT WORDS FOR ME!*”

For today, my word/phrase(s) are: “Holiday”, “Easter”; “Passover”; “Passover Seder, “Holi”, “Navruz”, “The Last Supper”; “ etc.

Holiday
“A holiday is a day designated as having special significance for which individuals, a government, or a religious group have deemed that observation is warranted. It is generally an official (more common) or unofficial observance of religious, national, or cultural significance, often accompanied by celebrations or festivities.”
(Source: Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia) – http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Holy_day

Easter
“Easter (Old English: Ēostre; Greek: Πάσχα, Paskha; Aramaic and Hebrew: פֶּסחא‎
Pasḥa,) is the central feast in the Christian liturgical year.[1]

According to the Canonical gospels, Jesus rose from the dead on the third day after his crucifixion. Some [who?] Christians celebrate this resurrection on Easter Day or Easter Sunday [2] (also Resurrection Day or Resurrection Sunday), two days after Good Friday and three days after Maundy Thursday. The chronology of his death and resurrection is variously interpreted to be between AD 26 and 36, traditionally 33.
Easter also refers to the season of the church year called Eastertide or the Easter Season. Traditionally the Easter Season lasted for the forty days from Easter Day until Ascension Day. The first week of the Easter Season is known as Easter Week or the Octave of Easter. The week from Palm Sunday to Easter is known as Holy Week. Easter also marks the end of Lent, a season of fasting, prayer, and penance.

Easter is a moveable feast, meaning it is not fixed in relation to the civil calendar. It occurs during the spring, in and around the month of April. Easter is linked to the Jewish Passover by much of its symbolism, as well as by its position in the calendar. In most European languages the feast called Easter in English is termed by the words for passover in those languages and in the older English versions of the Bible the term Easter was the term used to translate passover.[3][4]”
(Source: Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia) – http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Easter

Passover
“Passover (Hebrew, Yiddish: פֶּסַח Pesach, Tiberian: [pesaħ]  ( listen), Modern Hebrew: Pesah, Pesakh, Yiddish: Peysekh, Paysakh, Paysokh) is a Jewish holy day and festival. It commemorates the story of the Exodus, in which the ancient Israelites were freed from slavery in Egypt. Passover begins on the 15th day of the month of Nisan, which is spring in the Northern Hemisphere, and is celebrated for seven or eight days. It is one of the most widely observed Jewish holidays. In the narrative of the Exodus, the Bible tells that God helped the Children of Israel escape slavery in Egypt by inflicting ten plagues upon the Egyptians before Pharaoh would release his Israelite slaves; the tenth and worst of the plagues was the slaughter of the first-born. The Israelites were instructed to mark the doorposts of their homes with the blood of a spring lamb and, upon seeing this, the spirit of the Lord passed over these homes, hence the term “passover”.[1] When Pharaoh freed the Israelites, it is said that they left in such a hurry that they could not wait for bread to rise. In commemoration, for the duration of Passover no leavened bread is eaten, for which reason it is called “The Festival of the Unleavened Bread”.[2] Matzo (flat unleavened bread) is the primary symbol of the holiday.” (Source: Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia) – http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Passover

Passover Seder
“The Passover Seder (Hebrew: סֵדֶר‎ [ˈsedeʁ], “order, arrangement”; Yiddish: Sayder) is a Jewish ritual feast that marks the beginning of the Jewish holiday of Passover. It is conducted on the evenings of the 14th day of Nisan in the Hebrew calendar, and on the 15th by traditionally observant Jews living outside Israel. This corresponds to late March or April in the Gregorian calendar. The Seder is a ritual performed by a community or by multiple generations of a family, involving a retelling of the story of the liberation of the Israelites from slavery in ancient Egypt. This story is in the Book of Exodus (Shemot) in the Hebrew Bible. The Seder itself is based on the Biblical verse commanding Jews to retell the story of the Exodus from Egypt: “You shall tell your son on that day, saying, ‘It is because of what the LORD did for me when I came out of Egypt.’” (Exodus 13:8) Traditionally, families and friends gather in the evening to read the text of the Haggadah, an ancient work derived from the Mishnah (Pesahim 10).[1][2] The Haggadah contains the narrative of the Israelite exodus from Egypt, special blessings and rituals, commentaries from the Talmud, and special Passover songs. Seder customs include drinking four cups of wine, eating matza, partaking of symbolic foods placed on the Passover Seder Plate, and reclining in celebration of freedom.[3] The Seder is performed in much the same way by Jews all over the world.” (Source: Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia) – http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Passover_Seder

Holi

“Holi (होली), is a spring religious festival celebrated by Hindus. It is primarily observed in India, Nepal, Sri Lanka,[1] and countries with large Indic diaspora populations, such as Suriname, Malaysia, Guyana, South Africa, Trinidad, United Kingdom, United States, Mauritius, and Fiji. In West Bengal and Orissa of India it is known as Dolyatra (Doul Jatra) (Bengali: দোলযাত্রা), or Basanta-Utsav (“spring festival”)(Bengali: বসন্তোৎসব), . The most celebrated Holi is that of the Braj region, in locations connected to the Lord Krishna: Mathura, Vrindavan, Nandagaon, and Barsana. These places have become tourist destinations during the festive season of Holi, which lasts here up to sixteen days.[2]

The main day, Holi, also known as Dhuli Vandana in Sanskrit, also Dhulheti, Dhulandi or Dhulendi, is celebrated by people throwing coloured powder and coloured water at each other. Bonfires are lit on the eve of the festival, also known as Holika Dahan (burning of Holika) or Chhoti Holi (little Holi). The bonfires are lit in memory of the miraculous escape that young Prahlad accomplished when Demoness Holika, sister of Hiranyakashipu, carried him into the fire. Holika was burnt but Prahlad, a staunch devotee of god Vishnu, escaped without any injuries due to his unshakable devotion. Holika Dahan is referred to as Kama Dahanam in South India.” (Source: Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia) – http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Holi

Navruz (Nowruz)

“For Coptic New Year, see Nayrouz. For other uses, see Nowruz (disambiguation).Nowrūz (Persian: نوروز, IPA: [nouˈɾuːz], originally “New Light”) is the name of the New Year in Iranian calendars and the corresponding traditional celebrations.[5] Nowruz is also widely referred to as the Persian New Year.[6][7][8][9]

Nowruz is celebrated and observed by Iranic peoples and the related cultural continent and has spread in many other parts of the world, including parts of Central Asia, Caucasus, South Asia, Northwestern China, the Crimea and some groups in the Balkans.

Nowruz marks the first day of spring and the beginning of the year in Iranian calendar. It is celebrated on the day of the astronomical vernal equinox, which usually occurs on March 21 or the previous/following day depending on where it is observed. As well as being a Zoroastrian holiday and having significance amongst the Zoroastrian ancestors of modern Iranians, the same time is celebrated in parts of the South Asian sub-continent as the new year. The moment the Sun crosses the celestial equator and equalizes night and day is calculated exactly every year and Iranian families gather together to observe the rituals.

Originally being a Zoroastrian festival, and the holiest of them all, Nowruz is believed to have been invented by Zoroaster himself, although there is no clear date of origin.[10] Since the Achaemenid era the official year has begun with the New Day when the Sun leaves the zodiac of Pisces and enters the zodiacal sign of Aries, signifying the Spring Equinox.” (Source: Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia) – http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Navruz

The Last Supper 

According to Christian belief, The Last Supper is the final meal that Jesus Christ shared with his Twelve Apostles in Jerusalem before his crucifixion.[1] The Last Supper provides the scriptural basis for the ceremony known as “the Eucharist”, “communion” or “the Lord’s Supper.” (Source: Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia) – http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Last_Supper

S & R* NEWS ALERT* #1: Make more memories this Easter season

“Easter traditions make fond memories that can last a lifetime. Traditions are something children look forward to every year, whether it be receiving their favorite chocolate or creating their favourite Easter crafts. Here are some ideas on what you can do to make this Easter more memorable than ever:

Give the gift of giving back 

Sometimes the most rewarding feeling comes from making another person happy. One example is on the Kinder Canada Facebook page. There, on the Joy to Share program, you can donate and support the Children’s Miracle Network and its 14 member hospitals across Canada. You will be helping a child like Olivia, who suffers from a rare blood disorder called Pearson’s Syndrome and receives special care from the Janeway Children’s Health and Rehabilitation Centre in Newfoundland and Labrador.

Taste the holidays 

Easter is known for its egg hunts and chocolate bunnies. With the season fast approaching, it’s important to stock up on all of your favorite chocolate treats. This year, add brand new surprises like the Kinder Mix with Plush Toy. It includes a variety of treats plus a plush bunny or lamb.

Break out your creative side for some crafty fun 

Set the kids up for some craft time. Create your own Easter bunny cards, decorate Easter eggs, or paint pots for some spring planting. Share these crafts with family, friends, or even someone in the community who needs a pick-me-up.”

S & R* NEWS ALERT* #2: Tips on how to help others this Easter season

“Easter can be a magical time of year filled with eggs, crafts, and family traditions. Share the joy of the Easter season by encouraging your children to get involved in their community. Helping people not only has a positive impact on your child, but also the lives of others in your community.

Here are some tips on how you and your family can help better your community:

Plan a Volunteer Day 

Pick an organization and plan a family volunteer day. Suggest serving food at a soup kitchen or planting flowers for the elderly. Volunteering is a rewarding experience for all involved that will help your child realize that even one person can make the world of difference in your community.

Clean a local park 

We all wish for a brighter and cleaner future for our children, so why not let them play a part in shaping this change? Pick a day to go to the nearest park or playground and organize a cleanup of the area. Bring a few bags to collect garbage and recycling you might surprise yourself on how many cans you find.

Support an organization that gives back 

Some organizations are standouts. This Easter season, for example, click on the Kinder Facebook page and join the Joy to Share program, which supports Children’s Miracle Network and its 14 member hospitals across Canada. You can help children like 2-year-old Olivia, who suffers from a rare blood disorder called Pearson’s Syndrome and receives special care from the Janeway Children’s Health and Rehabilitation Centre in Newfoundland and Labrador.

Share Easter treats with others 

Easter would not be complete without chocolate. Plan an extra special Easter egg hunt with your family and neighbourhood kids. For guidance, specialists at Kinder say their egg hunt kit includes a variety of treats that are perfect for sharing.”
