The celebration of Easter in our family does not occur during Holy Week only, it starts on Ash Wednesday and continues until Easter Resurrection Mass at 6am followed by Easter lunch and dinner. Following Ash Wednesday a date is set in church for Recollection/Reflection Week, the week starts during Sunday Mass and continues for three evenings of masses celebrated by a visiting priest from Poland or another country. This experience of Recollection/Reflection Week is always a learning experience. This week of reflection means reevaluating my purpose in life, my values and faith. Once Lent starts, we eat fish on Fridays. This may sound as if we are very religious, but we are not, this has been a tradition since my childhood, I am 44.
