On the first day of the week

April 16, 2017 6:00 am

“On the first day of the week, Mary of Magdala came to the tomb early in the morning, while it was still dark, and saw the stone removed from the tomb.” (JN 20: 1)

Last week we started counting the days before the Resurrection with “six days before Passover”; today, again, we start “on the first day of the week,” a totally new reality: “the stone removed from the tomb,” a sign of resurrection and a sign of Our Lord’s victory over death, satan and sin. From this moment, every Sunday celebrates His victory, our redemption and the beginning of our new lives.

“Christ, our paschal lamb, has been sacrificed; let us feast with joy in the Lord.” (Gospel Acclamation)
