“You will show me the path of life, the fullness of joy in your presence” (Psalm 16:11)
On This Date…
On March 22, 1970, Palm Sunday, the new Lectionary of the Catholic Church went into effect; it came as a result of the recommendations of the Second Vatican Council’s Constitution on the Sacred Liturgy, promulgated in December 1963.
On March 22, 1980 Mother Teresa of Calcutta received the Bharat Ratna (Jewel of India) Award for her humanitarian work; she said, “Only in heaven will we see how much we owe to the poor for helping us to love God better because of them.”
March 22 is the earliest date possible for the celebration of Easter – the first Sunday after the first full moon following the spring equinox – established by the Council of Nicea in 325 AD.
Today at Mass we prayed, “You will show me the path of life, the fullness of joy in your presence”. Inspired by the Lectionary, Mother Teresa walked God’s path.
