Solemnity of the Resurrection of the Lord

WHY DID THE APOSTLES NOT EXPECT THE RESURRECTION?

Liturgical Colour: 

Thank you, heavenly Father, for giving us your Son and raising Him from the dead. In this way you showed your approval of all that He achieved. We thank you Jesus for the example of your life, for becoming man, leaving yourself with us in the Eucharist and for dying for us on the Cross.

May we never think lightly of our sins which crucified Jesus and may we never be forgetful of what He did for us. By His life and death He demonstrated that He could not have loved us more than He did.

IF CHRIST HAS NOT RISEN OUR FAITH IS IN VAIN

Liturgical Colour: 

Acts. 10:34, 37-43; Col.3:1-4 & Jn. 20:1-9

The resurrection of the Lord on that first Easter Sunday is the cornerstone of our Catholic faith. For if Jesus had not risen from the dead then, as Saint Paul says, our faith is in vain and, worse still, we remain in our sins. And if that were the case, then we are wasting our time.
