Eastertide is the period of fifty days from Easter Sunday to Pentecost Sunday.
It is celebrated as a single joyful feast, indeed as the “great Lord’s Day”. Each Sunday of the season is treated as a Sunday of Easter, and, after the Sunday of the Resurrection, they are named Second Sunday of Easter, Third Sunday of Easter, etc. up to the Seventh Sunday of Easter, while the whole fifty-day period concludes with Pentecost Sunday.
Easter Sunday and Pentecost correspond to pre-existing Jewish feasts: The first day of Pesach (×¤×¡×—) and the holiday of Shavu’ot (×©×‘×•×¢×•×ª). In the Jewish tradition, the 49 days between these holidays are known as Counting of the Omer (×¡×¤×™×¨×ª ×”×¢×•×ž×¨)â€Ž.
The first eight days constitute the Octave of Easter and are celebrated as solemnities of the Lord.
Since 2000 the Second Sunday of Easter is also called Divine Mercy Sunday. The name “Low Sunday” for this Sunday, once common in English, is now rarely used.
The solemnity of the Ascension of the Lord is celebrated on the fortieth day of Eastertide (a Thursday), except in countries where it is not a Holy Day of Obligation. In such countries it is celebrated on the following Sunday (the forty-third day of Eastertide). The nine days from that feast until the Saturday before Pentecost (inclusive) are days of preparation for the Holy Spirit the Paraclete, which inspired the form of prayer called a novena.
