Saturday, March 3o:

Corinthians 5:6b-8 / John zo:r-9

Easter Vigil:

Being a bit of a liturgical geek, I have many favorite elements of the Easter liturgies, among them the Easter Vigil baptisms, the dark church enlightened by the paschal candle, and the first sprinkling rite of the season.

Sunday, March 3r:

But what I anticipate most is the return of the Alleluia in full force. We hear it first before the gospel proclamation at the Easter Vigil. lt's sung by the

priest at the dismissal and uniquely responded to in song by the congregation. This double Alleluia is sung this way only during the Octave of

Tuesday, April z: 8 am Mass: SoLEMNITY

Easter to remind us that this is a special moment in the Church year.

Wednesday, April 3: 8 am Mass: soLEMNtrY

Some parishes practice a ritual before Ash Wednesday called "burying the Alleluia." A cloth on which Alleluia is printed is ceremoniously "buried"hidden away during Lent. At the Easter celebration, it bursts fofth from its tomb along with Jesus. Alleluia, which means "praise God," is a word of joy, hope, and promise. lt always feels great to sing it again.

Thursday, April 4: 7 pm Mass: soLEMNtry

Friday, April 5: 8 am Mass, soLEMNtw

ln the Lukan account of the resurrection proclaimed at the Easter Vigil, the disciples are at first confused by the empty tomb but, Scripture says, "they remembered his words." They recalled what Jesus had said about his rising after three days.

Saturday, April 6:

On Easter, we remember the word Allelura after it has been buried for forty days. lt's a word that celebrates Jesus' incredible triumph over sin and death, and his promise of new life for us. Remember the Alleluia this day-and throughoutthe Easter season. Thanks be to God indeedl

ru Hu:d

the Lord encouragesJob's friends to seek his intercession on their behalf, Then in 1 Thessalonians 5:25, Saint Paul asks Church members in Thessalonica to pray for him and his missionary companions: "Brothers, pray for us." In neither the New nor Old Testament is there a concern that it might be inappropriate to ask liuing members of one's faith community for support in prayer before God. Therefore, ifwe believe the saints are "living" members of our community, why would we not ask for their prayerful support just as we do the flesh-and-blood members of the communitywe can see and touch? Christ is the one true mediator benveen God and humans, but Christ calls us into a community of faith. Prayer with the saints celebrates and builds this community that God delights in working through and in. To ignore the saints is to deprive ourselves of gifts that God freely chooses to give.'We hope to be in communion with the saints forever. For now, we strengthen our fellowship with them through prayer.

In Job
