The Holy Sacrifice of the Mass today is filled with allusions to the Resurrection of our Lord and to Baptism. Jesus was immolated, but He triumphs on the Cross! He comes forth triumphant from the sepulcher...


“This is the day which the Lord has made; let us celebrate it with transports of joy.” (From the Office of the Church).

Christ has triumphed over all His enemies. He has clothed in glory and splendor His Body which had been Victim. Christ has triumphed over death! He is God Divine!

“If Christ be not risen again your faith is vain.” 1Cor. 15

St. Paul reminds us that God has given us victory through our Lord Jesus Christ...! Our destiny is heaven!
