You may have noticed that Lent is soon approaching, and that Easter (for the Latin Church) comes on the very early date of March 23rd. It gives me satisfaction to find that some benevolent madman has provided us with a complete listing of Easter dates from the year 326 through 4099 -- an indispensable help for making brunch reservations. You'll be pleased to learn that the next occurrence of a March 23rd Easter will be in the year 2160, and that Easter dates of March 22nd (the earliest possible) will occur in 2285, 2353, 2437, and 2505 -- the last but one, note, just in time for the revised NAB Lectionary.

An appeal from our founder, Dr. Jeffrey Mirus:

    Until following up the link, I had no idea there was such a thing as "ecclesiastical full moon dates." It opens up almost endless double-entendre possibilities, but I'll resist.

    Talk about a trivia lover's delight! This is great.

    "Benevolent madman" - a Dominican, I'm sure, toiling away in some unheated spartan cell with nothing but a laptop.
