"This is the day which the Lord hath made; let us be glad and rejoice thereis. This is the most excellent day, the happiest day in the whole year, because it is the day when Christ, our Pasch, has been sacrificed. Christmas, too, is a joyous feast, but whereas Christmas vibrates with a characteristic note of sweetness, the Paschal solemnity resounds with an unmistakable note of triumph; it is joy for the triumph of Christ, for His victory. The liturgy of the Mass shows us this Paschaal joy under two aspects: joy in truth and joy in in charity." <a Divine Intimacy
