Easter Sunday 2018



ALLELUIA, ALLELUIA !!!! 
CHRISTUS RESURREXIT, RESURREXIT VERES  
ALLELUIA, ALLELUIA!!!

ALLELUIA, ALLELUIA!!!! 
CHRIST IS RISEN, HE IS RISEN INDEED, 
ALLELUIA, ALLELUIA!!!


Christians, to the Paschal Victim Offer your thankful praises!A Lamb the sheep redeems: Christ, who only is sinless, Reconciles sinners to the Father.Death and life have contended in that combat stupendous: The Prince of life, who died, reigns immortal.Speak, Mary, declaring What you saw, wayfaring. "The tomb of Christ, who is living, The glory of Jesus' resurrection;Bright angels attesting, The shroud and napkin resting. Yes, my Christ my hope is arisen:To Galilee he goes before you." Christ indeed from death is risen, our new life obtaining. Have mercy, victor King, ever reigning!Amen. Alleluia
(Sequence from Mass on Easter Sunday)

Gospel - John 20:1-9


Early on the first day of the week, while it was still dark, Mary Magdalene came to the tomb and saw that the stone had been removed from the tomb. So she ran and went to Simon Peter and the other disciple, the one whom Jesus loved, and said to them, “They have taken the Lord out of the tomb, and we do not know where they have laid him.” Then Peter and the other disciple set out and went toward the tomb. The two were running together, but the other disciple outran Peter and reached the tomb first. He bent down to look in and saw the linen wrappings lying there, but he did not go in. Then Simon Peter came, following him, and went into the tomb. He saw the linen wrappings lying there, and the cloth that had been on Jesus’ head, not lying with the linen wrappings but rolled up in a place by itself. Then the other disciple, who reached the tomb first, also went in, and he saw and believed; for as yet they did not understand the scripture, that he must rise from the dead.
