NAME OF THE DAY
This name derives from the Latin name “Paschalis or Pashalis” which means "passage, relating to Easter", from the Latin “pascha -ālis”, from the Ancient Greek "Páscha (Πάσχα)", from the Aramaic “pasḥā”, which in turn derives from the Hebrew “pésakh”, which means "to be born on, or to be associated with, Passover day". Since the Hebrew holiday Passover coincides closely with the later Christian holiday of Easter, the Latin word came to be used for both occasions. 1) Mysterii Paschalis is the incipit of an apostolic letter issued “motu proprio” by Pope Paul VI on 14 February 1969. It reorganized the liturgical year of the Roman Rite and revised the liturgical celebrations of Jesus Christ and the saints in the General Roman Calendar. 2) Pope Saint Paschal I (Latin: Paschalis I; †824) was Pope from 25 January 817 to his death in 824. His mother was the renowned religious, the Lady Theodora.
