Christ’s light burns brightly at the Gondreau family home on Easter Vigil #catholicbooster
At a time when Catholics are unable to attend Mass due to the coronavirus pandemic, Providence College Theology professor Dr. Paul Gondreau is struggling most this Triduum with having to miss Mass on the Easter Vigil Mass.
“The hardest thing for me personally during the Triduum will be not being physically present for the Easter Vigil. It’s the highlight of the entire liturgical year for me. I so look forward to it every year.”
What the Gondreau family has decided to do is have their own fire in the backyard fire pit while live-streaming the service of light.
Dr. Gondreau told me that they will “have [their] own candles and … live-stream the Vigil and have [their] own fire with candles during the Service of Light, and then move inside when the service shifts to the inside of the church.”
What a beautiful expression of faith as a family!
During this unprecedented time of COVID-19, the Gondreau family is living out their faith in a beautiful way, giving the rest of us a Catholic Booster in the process.
