Christ is risen!

He is risen, indeed!

We just returned from visiting family in Montgomery, Alabama. For this trip, we flew in and out of Birmingham, which is about 1.5 hrs north. Perhaps next time we'll be able to make a pilgrimage to EWTN and the Shrine of the Most Blessed Sacrament.

Up until this year, our Easter experience had always involved the magnificent Easter Vigil on Saturday night. This year, however, we went in the morning -- my wife and I going to the Catholic church near my family's home, and my family, of course, going to their Baptist church down the street. But we reunited afterward for the requisite Easter feast! The local Catholic church was quite diverse, and we felt quite comfortable there. The liturgy was done very well, and of course, the Mass was awesome as it always is.

We explored the countryside a bit and a lot more of the city.
