Kort svar: Dymmelonsdagen är onsdagen före påskdagen. År 2023 infaller dymmelonsdagen 5 april.
Den kristna påskfastan börjar med askonsdagen och löper hela vägen till påskhelgen. Från onsdagen i stilla veckan går fastan in i sitt allvarligaste skede. Under katolsk tid, när fastan togs på större allvar i Sverige, så lades allt arbete ner på onsdagen för att ligga nere till och med påskafton.
Onsdagen i stilla veckan kallas för dymmelonsdagen. Namnet dymmelonsdag kommer av att man virade in kyrkklockornas metallkläppar i tyg eller ersatte dem med trästavar. Troligtvis härstammar ordet dymmel från det fornordiska dymbil som betyder stum (jämför med engelskans dumb). Dymmel lever kvar i vissa dialekter i just orden dymbel eller dymling, som båda betyder träplugg.
Dymmelonsdagens datum är beroende av påskens datum. När påsken är sen så är dymmelonsdagen sen. Dymmelonsdagen kan infalla som tidigast 18 mars och som senast 21 april (vilket den kommer att göra ex 2038)

On Today’s Gospel
As time draws closer to the end of our Lenten journey let us take a moment to ponder and dwell on our experiences. Are we that much closer in our relationship with our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ? Have we awoken each day to listen to Him like a disciple? Have we comforted those who are wearied, burdened and led them to Him? Have we used our spiritual gifts in the last thirty odd days to heal, restore, and cast out evil? Have we brought the peace of Christ to our homes, workplaces, Church and to the rest of the world?
Or have we instead chosen to sell our Lord off for ‘thirty pieces of silver’? By submitting to the temptations of the world?
My Jesus, my Saviour, I stand before You sinful and sorrowful for having let You down in moments of weakness. I am truly repentant of all my sins, look not on them Lord, but in Your mercy grant me pardon and peace. So that I may once again shine brightly for You as I bring Your light into the world. Amen
Isaiah 50:4-9 ·
Who thinks he has a case against me? Let him approach me
The Lord has given me
a disciple’s tongue.
So that I may know how to reply to the wearied
he provides me with speech.
Each morning he wakes me to hear,
to listen like a disciple.
The Lord has opened my ear.
For my part, I made no resistance,
neither did I turn away.
I offered my back to those who struck me,
my cheeks to those who tore at my beard;
I did not cover my face
against insult and spittle.
The Lord comes to my help,
so that I am untouched by the insults.
So, too, I set my face like flint;
I know I shall not be shamed.
My vindicator is here at hand. Does anyone start proceedings against me?
Then let us go to court together.
Who thinks he has a case against me?
Let him approach me.
The Lord is coming to my help,
who will dare to condemn me?
‘The Son of Man is going to his fate, as the scriptures say he will’
One of the Twelve, the man called Judas Iscariot, went to the chief priests and said, ‘What are you prepared to give me if I hand him over to you?’ They paid him thirty silver pieces, and from that moment he looked for an opportunity to betray him.
Now on the first day of Unleavened Bread the disciples came to Jesus to say, ‘Where do you want us to make the preparations for you to eat the passover?’ ‘Go to so-and-so in the city’ he replied ‘and say to him, “The Master says: My time is near. It is at your house that I am keeping Passover with my disciples.”’ The disciples did what Jesus told them and prepared the Passover.
When evening came he was at table with the twelve disciples. And while they were eating he said ‘I tell you solemnly, one of you is about to betray me.’ They were greatly distressed and started asking him in turn, ‘Not I, Lord, surely?’ He answered, ‘Someone who has dipped his hand into the dish with me, will betray me. The Son of Man is going to his fate, as the scriptures say he will, but alas for that man by whom the Son of Man is betrayed! Better for that man if he had never been born!’ Judas, who was to betray him; asked in his turn, ‘Not I, Rabbi, surely?’ ‘They are your own words’ answered Jesus.
The goal of the synod on synodality
is to force us to remain silent when we’re told obvious lies and even worse, to repeat the lies ourselves.
To assent to obvious lies, like this one from Cardinal Hollerich, is to become evil oneself
