    How can the fractured unity between Catholics and Orthodox Christians be resolved regarding the question of when to celebrate this day of all days in the Christian calendar?


    Deacon Jeffrey Mierzejewski and his family usually celebrate Easter on two Sundays each year. This year, the deacon and his wife, Kseniya, and their four children celebrated Easter on April 4, and a month later they celebrated it on May 2.

    Deacon Mierzejewski is a member of a Byzantine Catholic community that meets at Holy Cross Catholic Church in Austin, Texas, and Kseniya, who is Eastern Orthodox, attends the Divine Liturgy at a local Orthodox church.


    But after 35 years of marriage, the Mierzejewskis have learned through the compromises that spring from love to accommodate their respective traditions in celebrating the Pascha (the Eastern Christian term for Easter).

    “Generally speaking, we celebrate both Paschas,” Deacon Mierzejewski told the Register, “and that means we would, most years, go to the celebration of the Pascha back into Lent for a couple weeks. More or less, we negotiate and do the best we can.”


    The Mierzejewskis’ experience of Easter reflects nearly half a millennium of fractured unity between Catholics and Orthodox Christians on the question of when to celebrate this day of all days in the Christian calendar.
