You are witnesses of these things

“Thus it is written that the Christ would suffer and rise from the dead on the third day and that repentance, for the forgiveness of sins, would be preached in his name to all the nations, beginning from Jerusalem. You are witnesses of these things.” (LK 24: 46-48)

First “the Christ would suffer,” then “rise from the dead on the third day,” and all of these are for “repentance, for the forgiveness of sins.” In these days we celebrate not only Our Lord’s victory over death but also our new beginning, our new creation and forgiveness of our sins. We “are witnesses of these things.”

“This is the day the LORD has made; let us be glad and rejoice in it.” (Gospel Acclamation)
