Full of gladness! (EASTER SUNDAY)

"This is the night of which it is written:  The night shall be as bright as day, dazzling is the night for me, and full of gladness. The sanctifying power of this night dispels all wickedness, washes faults away, restores innocence to the fallen, and joy to the mourners, drives out hatred, fosters concord, and brings down the mighty." ~ From the Exultet, intoned during the Easter Vigil  (full text linked below)

The Resurrected Christ ~ Bartelome Murillo

  "Let the risen Jesus enter your life,
welcome Him as a friend, with trust:
He is life!"

 Pope Francis
Easter Vigil homily
St Peter's Basilica, Roma

Christ is risen to go before us:
our Brother to the Father,
our Priest to the Altar.
our Saviour to the world!

Christ is risen!
Christ is risen!
Christ is risen!
