We adore you, O Christ, and we bless you. (Genuflect)
Because by your holy cross you have redeemed the world.
Very early on Sunday morning the women went to the tomb, carrying the spices they had prepared. They found the stone rolled away from the entrance to the tomb, so they went in; but they did not find the body of the Lord Jesus. They stood there puzzled about this, when suddenly two men in bright shining clothes stood by them. Full of fear, the women bowed down to the ground, as the men said to them, “Why are you looking among the dead for one who is alive? He is not here; he has been raised. Remember what he said to you while he was in Galilee: ‘The Son of Man must be handed over to sinners, be crucified, and three days later rise to life.'” (Luke 24:1-6)
Our Father.., Hail Mary.., Glory Be..
Have mercy on us, O Lord.
Have mercy on us.
Holy Mother, pierce me through!
In my heart, each wound renew,
Of my Savior crucified.
Jesus risen be our lover,
In your food and in our brother,
Lead us home to paradise.
