Exult, let them exult, the hosts of heaven,
exult, let Angel ministers of God exult,
let the trumpet of salvation
sound aloud our mighty King’s triumph!
Be glad, let earth be glad, as glory floods her,
ablaze with light from her eternal King,
let all corners of the earth be glad,
knowing an end to gloom and darkness.
Rejoice, let Mother Church also rejoice,
arrayed with the lightning of his glory,
let this holy building shake with joy,
filled with the mighty voices of the peoples.
(From the Exsultet)
ALLELUIA! He is risen!
Whatever you’re doing today I hope you have a very Happy Easter! Our parish’s Easter vigil Mass was glorious and we’ll be heading off again this morning for the sake of our little ones who were tucked into bed early last night. Later we’re off to see our rels and eat lots of great food that I didn’t have to cook and maybe set up an Easter egg hunt or two for the kiddies!
