Picking Up from When I Was 18
In The Case of The Easter Vigil

Since I have been worshipping across Catholic Church Rites, in the cases of The Latin(Roman)Rite and the Byzantine Rite, I know that in the Latin(Roman)Rite, the Alleluia is not sung nor recited in Lent.

For those of you living in the USA, those metric measurements translate to 12 Feet and 15 Feet. Those are the Basketball Foul Lines in the Knights Of Columbus International Free Throw Basketball Championship. Canada is very much a part of these competitions. In fact, I suspect that Canadians produce more Free Throw Basketball Coverage, than Americans do.
Sadly, it all goes to only one source and…
