and Quasimodo was a bell ringer

To-day has many names. I must mention, to-day fulfills the Octave of Easter, and is also, then fittingly, Divine Mercy Sunday. Perhaps, most anciently, to-day is Dominica in albis depositis, the Sunday of laying away the white (garment of baptism) is one which is reflected in an Ambrosian hymn. From the Introit at Mass — "Quasi modo geniti infantes, rationabile, sine dolo lac concupiscite", — the day is also known as Quasimodo Sunday; also St. Thomas Sunday, Low Sunday, Second Sunday of Easter. On the 30th of April 2000, Pope John Paul II made it Divine Mercy Sunday.

Well, 4 a.m. Cleveland time was broadcast the dual papal canonisations from Rome. Three local parishes, St. Casimir, St. Stanislaus, and SS. Peter and Paul met to view it together. Here follows some fotos from St. Casimir, afterwards there was some joyous bell ringing and a small Mass.
