Gospel Reading & Reflection
EASTER SUNDAY C

First Reading, A Reading from the Acts of the Apostles Acts 10:34,37-43

We have eaten and drunk with him after his resurrection from the dead.

Peter addressed Cornelius and his household: 'You must heard about the recent happenings in Judaea: about Jesus of Nazareth and how he began in Galilee, after John had been preaching baptism. God had anointed him with the Holy Spirit and with power, and because God was with him, Jesus went about doing good and curing all who had fallen into the power of the devil. Now I, and those with me, can witness to everything he did throughout the countryside of Judaea and in Jerusalem itself: and also to the fact that they killed him by hanging him on a tree, yet three days afterwards God raised him to life and allowed him to be seen, not by the whole people but only by certain witnesses God had chosen beforehand. Now we are those witnesses - we have eaten and drunk with him after his resurrection from the dead - and he has ordered us to proclaim this to his people and to tell them that God has appointed him to judge everyone, alive or dead. It is to him that all the prophets bear this witness: that all who believe in Jesus will have their sins forgiven through his name.'

This is the word of the Lord

Second Reading, A Reading from the letter of St Paul to theColossians Col 3:1-4

Look for the things that are in heaven, where Christ is.

Since you have been brought back to true life with Christ, you must look for the things that are in heaven, where Christ is, sitting at God's right hand. Let your thoughts be on heavenly things, not on the things that arre on the earth, because you haved died, and now the life you have is hidden with Christ in God. But when Christ is revealed - and he is your life - you too will be revealed in all your glory with him.

This is the word of the Lord

A reading from the Holy Gospel according to John Jn 20:1-9

The teaching of scripute is that he must rise from the dead.

It was very early on the first day of the week and still dark, when Mary of Magdala came to the tomb. She saw that the stone had been moved away from thee tomb and came running to Simon Peter and the other disciple, the one Jesus loved. 'They have taken the Lord out of the tomb' she said 'and we don't know where they have put him'.

So Peter set out with the other disciple to go to the tomb.They ran together, but the other disciple, running faster than Peter, reached the tomb first; he bent down and saw the linen cloths lying on the ground, but did not go in. Simon Peter who was following now came up, went right into the tomb, saw the linen cloths on the ground, and also the cloth that had been over his head; this was not with the linen cloths but rolled up in a place by itself. Then the other disciple who had reached the tomb first also went in; he saw and he believed. Till this moment they had failed to understand the teaching of scipture, that he must rise from the dead.

This is the Gospel of the Lord.

REFLECTION

The Lord's Supper

On Holy Thursday, the Catholic Church celebrates a special mass of the Lord's Supperr that commemorates the institution of the Holy Eucharist. Christ commanded the apostles and their successors to act in his stead.

Washing of the feet

Just as Christ did for the 12 apostles, so does the priest for 12 people in his parish by washing their feet.

Good Friday

The Stations of the Cross devotion is centered on the Passion of Christ. By praying the Stations of the Cross a person makes a spiritual pilgrimage, aided by artistic representations of those scenes. (Why is the crucifix draped in purple? This is because Christ was given purple robes by the Roman soldiers to make him King).

Then the veneration of the cross occurs whre the faithful process to the foot of the cross with a kiss or a bow or by touch. Then Holy Communion is given to the faithful for their journey through life. Holy Communion was consecrated at the Holy Thursday mass. Then we leave the church in silence as we await the Resurrection of the Lord.
