Mater Dolorosa Catholic Church
Easter Sunday
March 23rd, 2008 - Bulletin

This is the day the Lord has made; let us rejoice and be glad.

Psalm 118


First Reading: Acts 10:34a, 37-43
Peter is an eyewitness: The Lord is risen.

Second Reading: Colossians 3:1-4
All who are baptized, set your hearts in heaven.

Gospel: John 20: 1-9
Three witnesses, Mary, Peter, and John; each responds to the empty tomb.

Very early in the morning after the Sabbath, Mary Magdalene went to the tomb to anoint Jesus’ body with precious oils. The reward of this good and conscientious steward was to be among the first to know that Jesus had been raised from the dead! Alleluia!

Creative God and Lord of Life,
You who call forth from the darkness of death
all those who love You,
we rejoice, on this Easter Sunday,
in the resurrection from the dead
of our Lord, Jesus Christ.

Visit our home and this table
with Your bright blessing of peace and life.
We pause in the midst of this prayer
to remember all the holy dead of our family
who live now in You and who await
the final and glorious resurrection of the dead.

May they and we,
because of our faith in You, our God,
taste in the victory of life over death.
May the Risen Christ, our Lord and Savior,
be our guest as we celebrate His resurrection
with this Easter Sunday dinner.
Bless those whose work to prepare this meal
has truly been a work of prayer,
and bless all of us who shall share it
with Easter love and joy.

May You, then, bless this table and this food, and each of us
in Your holy name: Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
