Question of the Day

Why is it that the same "purists" who have no trouble coming to Midnight Mass at Christmas complain when an Easter Vigil might start at, say, 9 p.m.?

I wonder the same.

But I even more about about this: To the best of my knowledge, there has never been a later afternoon/eary evening Mass on Holy Saturday. Why are so many so surprised not to find one?

'cause they just don't get it!

Perhaps the "purists" know that the Easter Vigil is really supposed to be celebrated on Holy Saturday morning, before noon?
