Ask someone, “What is the Sunday after Easter?” and they might say the Second Sunday of Easter, Low Sunday; Station at St. Pancras; Thomas Sunday, Dominica in Albis [Depositis/Deponendis], Quasimodo, Divine Mercy, or the Octave Day of Easter. But those are titles for the Sunday after Easter Day.

We used to be able to create a 50-day event on facebook. That has changed – the limit now is two weeks. Even facebook, the measure of western culture, won’t allow for an event to go 50 days. The last time facebook allowed our 50 days of Easter event was 2014.
