Easter and ‘Easter Duties’

Many people are asking how we will observe Easter this year in these difficult times. Here’s some guidance from Rome in the form of a decree.

Confession

As we approach our most important week of the year – Holy Week – the way we follow Christ – from his triumphant entrance into Jerusalem, to the foot of the Cross, to an empty tomb – will be completely different this year.

In preparation, many would have availed themselves of the Sacrament of Reconciliation – Confession – to prepare for a fresh start at Easter. But what does it mean for our spiritual well-being and salvation if we can’t fulfil our “Easter Duties”?

Here’s a message from Cardinal Vincent Nichols, President of the Bishops’ Conference.
