Quasi Modo, the Hunchback of Notre Dame, and Divine Mercy Sunday


“Quasimodo”

The Hunchback Of Notre Dame’s tragic main character got his unusual name when as a baby, he was found abandoned and hideously deformed on the steps of Paris’ Notre Dame Cathedral, on the 2nd Sunday of Easter.

The Entrance Antiphon for that Mass begins with the Latin words, “Quasi Modo” – “As Newborn Babes”.
