Happy Easter!


..from the Easter Vigil Mass, the Easter Song of Praise,


The Exsultet


Rejoice, heavenly powers!
Sing choirs of angels!
Exult, all creation around God's throne!
Jesus Christ, our King, is risen!

Sound the trumpet of salvation!
Rejoice O earth in shining splendour,
radiant in the brightness of your King!

Christ has conquered! Glory fills you!
Darkness vanishes for ever!
Rejoice, O Mother Church, Exult in glory!

The risen Saviour shines upon you!
Let this place resound with joy,
echoing the mighty song of all God's people...


If you are not familiar with this very, very ancient chant, you may enjoy this version, with a slightly different English translation...

  3. Hope you have a wonderful Easter Caite! We were up at the crack of dawn for the sunrise mass today, and it was beautiful. And only 45 minutes long. In 45 minutes we leave for brunch and I'm about to gnaw my arm off. Bring on the eats and the champagne!
