Gospel Acclamation:
Alleluia, alleluia!
Christ , our Passover
has been sacrificed ; let
us celebrate the feast
then, in the Lord.
Christians, to the Paschal Victim offer Sacrifice and praise;
the sheep are ransomed by the lamb;
and Christ the undefiled, hath sinners reconciled.
Death with life contended: combat strangely ended!
Life’s own Champion slain, yet lives to reign.
Tell us Mary: say what thou didst see upon the way.
The tomb the Living did enclose; I saw Christ’s glory as he rose!
The angels were attesting; shroud with grave-clothes resting.
Christ my hope, has risen: he goes before you into Galilee. That Christ
is truly risen from the dead we know. Victorious King, thy mercy show!

henever Christians
celebrate liturgy
they do more than merely
remember the past; they
make its effects really present and active here and
now through the power of
the Holy Spirit. So when we
celebrate the Eucharist we
make Christ really
present in word and
sacrament within
this very act of worship. And on the
Easter feast we actuate, make effectively present, the
saving act of Jesus
who conquered sin
and rose from the
dead to fullness of
life. Easter is about
celebration and it is yours
for the feasting!
grip of mediocrity, no longer
the plaything of sin, the
hapless victim of evil or the
amusing toy of death, but
are set free to live a life that
here and now enjoys the
full force of God’s creation
and the future promise of
total bliss. Easter is cosmic
t’s impossible to do justice to the feast of Easter. It’s the day that all of
history converged upon
from the beginning of time
and the day from which our
lives take their ultimate
meaning. At Easter, God in
Jesus Christ radically transformed our lives, so that we
are no longer held in the
he empty tomb confounds those who
thought of Jesus as merely
a clever philosopher or an
astute politician. Death
could not contain Jesus
because he is the Lord of
Life. And by taking on our
earthly existence with all its
highs and lows he has redeemed our human nature
at its roots, where we feel
most vulnerable and susceptible. Easter is the victory-feast of God who has
taken on darkness and
shattered it with his light.
It’s the victory-feast of God
who has shown evil to be
ultimately powerless when
confronted by his
might and who has
laughed in the face
of death. Easter is
about redemption
and it’s yours for
the taking!
o Easter explodes with
praise and rejoicing
and its keyword is
“Alleluia”! Our
songs, hymns,
psalms and prayers proclaim that all those things
which would seek to drag
us down, to frighten us and
to hold us in their power
have been defeated by the
infinite strength of a loving
God who made us to enjoy
fullness of life and who has
redeemed us for eternity by
rising from the dead. Easter
is about song and it’s yours
for the singing!
and it’s yours for the asking!

Thank you
O Christ Jesus, when all is darkness and
we feel our weakness and helplessness,
give us the sense of your presence, your
love, and your strength. Help us to have
perfect trust in your protecting love and
strengthening power, so that nothing may
frighten or worry us, for, living close to
you, we shall see your hand, your purpose and your will through all things.
Amen. (Saint Ignatius Loyola)
Easter is not a time for groping through dusty
tomes or musty tombs to quell the godless claims
of those who scoff or even to prove life eternal. It
is a day to fan the ashes of dead hope, a day to
banish doubts and seek the slopes where the
Sun of Justice is rising, to revel in our Christian
faith which transports us out of ourselves and the
dead past into God’s vast and inviting unknown.
