bringing again the realization that
the one' great sacrifice has brought'
about the triumph of eternal life
over death. We remember that
Christ allowed himself to be cruci

Easter marks the turning point
for nature, when the whole coun
tryside seems to respond and echo
with the word "I am the. Resur
rection." We may see then a great
kinship between two of God's crea

As" man may gralp immortality
with his dying breath, so is it true
that nothing in nature is ever com
pletely destroyed.. With Easter

How Bunny Became
A Symbol of Easter
How did the bunny rabbit be
come associated with Easter?
The rabbit or hare is a symbol
of the moon and since the date of
Easter is governed by the moon.
It Js, in a sense a lunar holiday.
The bunny came into the Easter
picture, it is said, because of the
fact that young rabbits are born
with their eyes open and, accord
ing to an old superstition, the hare,
which has nocturnal habits, always
kept its eyes open. Hence, it be
came identified with the full moon.
Too, the Egyptian word for hare
was "un" which also means "to
open," or the "opener." As open
er of the new year at Easter time
spring being the time when most
vegetation is young or new the
hare became associated with the
egg, symbol or resurrection, as
as Easter symbols.

Lent, Now 40. Days,
Once Was 40 Hours '
Lent is the areaf period of fast
ing in Christian churches and be
gins on Ash Wednesday, . wmcn
comes 40 days previous to Easter,
not counting Sundays.
Originally, lent was but a period
of 40 hours, but later was length
ened to a period of 36 days, omit
ting all Sundays and all Saturdays
It was brought to the present 40
days when Pope Gregory added
Ash Wednesday to the fast, to
gether with the remainder of that
The first formal recording of a
lenten fast is in the fifth canon of
the Council of Nicaes in 325. f
Observance Great Day
Even the Pagan Easter, on which
the Christian day of rejoicing was
superimposed In many lands, was
a great day. The Pagan observ
ance signified the resurgance of
the human spirit after the rigors
of winter. To the early Christian,
Easter was a day of triumph be
cause it Justified his faith in the
victory of life over death.
. The Christian meaning is the
same today. Although the world
remains unsettled, nations suspici
ous and plotting against one an
other, Easter Sunday is a token
of all resurrections, the time when
we count the world's gains and
rejoice in' them.
Actual Easter Date
May Vary by 35 Days
The actual date of Easter varies
from between March 22 to April
25th over a period of 35 days.
About a.d. 325, the Council of
Christian Churches at Nicea in
Asia drew up the Nicene Creed and
decided that Easter shall be the
first Sunday following the Paschal
Full Moon, which happens upon or
next after March 21. The reason
for this ruling, it was said, was
that the Pilgrims needed moon
light to travel on their way to the
great yearly Easter festivities.

This Easier We Have
Many Causes for Joy
This Easter Sunday we have
more than one cause for joy. ...
We might remember Easter Sun
day,. 1944, when the weary Amer
icans of the 5th Army worshipped
at a crude altar, all too close to the
German lines. Or,'-Just o&S short
year later, Easter Sunday, 1945,
when our soldiers and marines
streamed ashore at Okinawa . . ,
or the Easter Sunday in Korea. '
Surely, the world Is yet, in a
great state of .unrest, but -on this
Easter morn let our mourning be
alone for Hun that was crucified
on the cross tor all mankind. . -
