Christus Resurrexit, Alleluia!
Christ is risen, alleluia! Today is the glorious crown of the liturgical year, the triumphant day on which Christ arose from the tomb, victorious over sin, having achieved our redemption through His own life-giving Death. Today’s Gospel reading, taken from the Gospel of St. Mark, tells of the devout women who came to the tomb to anoint the Body of Jesus early on the first day of the week, only to be met by the angel in white who proclaims to them the Resurrection of the Lord.
The Mass for today and every day of the Octave includes the beautiful Paschal Sequence, which recounts the story of Christ’s Resurrection and proclaims his everlasting victory.
Mors et vita duéllo conflixére mirándo: dux vitæ mórtuus, regnat vivus.
Death and life have contended in that conflict stupendous: the Prince of Life, Who died, deathless reigneth.
Below are pictures from Easter Vigil and Easter Sunday Masses at our apostolates from past years. We wish you and your families a most joyful and blessed Easter season!
