THE GOSPEL (Easter Vigil)
John 20:1-9

THE GOSPEL (Easter Sunday)
Luke 24:1-12

THE GOSPEL (Easter Tuesday)
John 20:11-18

They both ran, but the other disciple ran faster than Peter
and arrived at the tomb first ...


An
 angel.
Dazzling light.
Boulders upheaved.
Burial head cloth rolled up.
Women at a run to tell disciples.
Disciples racing to see for themselves.
Empty tomb proclaiming the

Good News.

He was not
 there.

 “Where is he?”

“Mary!” 

The one who has loved us
into wholeness
is alive.
and
with us now.

We say with her,

“Rabbouni!”



THE FIRST READING
(Easter Sunday)
Acts 10:34, 37-43

“You know what has happened.”

Night surrendered to day, dark to light,
fear to courage,
death
to resurrection.

Peter,

whose fear could not admit he knew the Lord
now fearless, proclaims him boldly,
across the barren hills,
each place he goes
in every action
he takes.

Lord,

give
 us, too,
your Spirit,
give us your life
as you gave it to Peter.

Let us show your story in our lives.



THE SECOND READING
(Easter Sunday)
Colossians 3:1-4
Corinthian 5:6b-8

Seek what is above.

Lord,
O help us to
find what is above:
compassion, gentleness,
kindness, humility, patience.

Let us put on love.

And forgive one another, bear with one another.
Let your peace dwell in our
hearts!
