Low Sunday and the first week of Eastertide



Low Sunday has many other names - Quasimodo Sunday for the opening words of the Introit; St Thomas  Sunday for the Gospel (the doubting Thomas story); Octave Day of Easter; and of course in the new calendar, Divine Mercy Sunday.

Whatever you call it though, it marks formal end of Easter, and start of the season of Eastertide, so do take the time to read up on the instructions for saying the Office during Eastertide.
