This day was made by the Lord; we rejoice and are glad. (Ps 117:24)
Till this moment they had failed to understand the teaching of scriptures.
Today we celebrate the central truth of our faith: Jesus Christ is risen from the dead, Allelulia! Let us rejoice and be glad in it. The work of God’s justice is now complete; it is accomplished. Through his death and resurrection we have received every spiritual blessing, every grace, every gift, every charism. Jesus has been glorified and the Spirit is breathed upon us. The Holy Spirit is truly our greatest gift given to guide and shape our lives. The Spirit is the power of God; our liberation and our joy.
Lord, we rejoice in the victory of your Son over death; by rising from the tomb to new life he gives us new hope and promise. Fill us this day with the gift of your Holy Spirit, the living blessing which you bestow on us with joy.
Our Father…, Ten Hail Marys …, Glory be…
