Surrexit! Alleluia!

Et valde mane...
And very early in the morning,
the first day of the week...
(Mk. 16:2)


Vespere autem sabbati ...
And in the end of the sabbath ...

quae lucescit in primam sabbati ...
when it began to dawn towards the first day of the week
came Mary Magdalen and the other Mary,
to see the sepulchre...
(Mt. 28:1)

Iesum quaeritis Nazarenum crucifixum
Surrexit.
You seek Jesus of Nazareth who was crucified.
He is risen.
(Mk. 16:6)

The Resurrection banner of the
Agnus Dei,
the Lamb of God
It was blessed after the early morning Mass of Easter.

The altar of the early Easter Morning Mass.

Iesum quaeritis Nazarenum crucifixum
Surrexit.
You seek Jesus of Nazareth who was crucified.
He is risen.
(Mk. 16:6)

Surrexit !

Vidi aquam...
The Easter morning Mass...
we are blessed with Easter Water...
Our Lord is present amongst us...
ancient chant ...
joyful Alleluias.
Christ is Risen.

Surrexit. Alleluia.

The welcome Easter Egg.

Easter Monday.
A day of recreation.

There is a clear open sky with sunshine,
the footpath is clear of puddles
and a dry doorstep is waiting ...

... during this Octave
the world is being put right again.

Wow, what a great post and inspiring pictures! I hope you had a blessed and happy Easter and were able to get some much-needed rest from your labors. I went to the Easter Vigil, something I wasn't able to do for the last couple of years, and it was a very heartwarming feeling to be present at the lighting of the Paschal Candle and the other important functions. God bless!
