Roast lamb, roast potatoes FOUR glasses of wine – a Passover feast indeed ! It seems strange to celebrate with such a feast in the middle of Lent: traditionally a season of giving up and going without; but in actual fact all the themes of the Easter Season, its sorrows and its joys, are at Passover. Indeed the very cup of wine and bread which Jesus held as he proclaimed his famous words about his body being broken and his blood poured out were the Matzos bread and wine at the heart of the Passover feast . From the times of the ancient Egyptians to the time of Jesus to the present day, Passover is an opportunity to come together to celebrate and be thankful . There is eating and singing and dancing – and more eating – who would want to pass over Passover?
