Easter Sunday Readings 2023 – The Resurrection of the Lord Mass During the Day – April 9 2023

1st Reading – Acts 10:34A, 37-43

34A  And Peter opening his mouth, said:

37  You know the word which has been published through all Judea: for it began from Galilee, after the baptism which John preached,

38  Jesus of Nazareth: how God anointed him with the Holy Ghost, and with power, who went about doing good, and healing all that were oppressed by the devil, for God was with him.

39  And we are witnesses of all things that he did in the land of the Jews and in Jerusalem, whom they killed, hanging him upon a tree.

40  Him God raised up the third day, and gave him to be made manifest,

41  Not to all the people, but to witnesses preordained by God, even to us, who did eat and drink with him after he arose again from the dead;

42  And he commanded us to preach to the people, and to testify that it is he who was appointed by God, to be judge of the living and of the dead.

43  To him all the prophets give testimony, that by his name all receive remission of sins, who believe in him.

Responsorial Psalm – Psalms 118:1-2, 16-17, 22-23

R. (24) This is the day the Lord has made; let us rejoice and be glad.
R. Alleluia.

1  Give thanks to the LORD, for he is good,
for his mercy endures forever.
2  Let the house of Israel say,
“His mercy endures forever.”
R. This is the day the Lord has made; let us rejoice and be glad.
R. Alleluia.

16  “The right hand of the LORD has struck with power;
the right hand of the LORD is exalted.
17  I shall not die, but live,
and declare the works of the LORD.”
R. This is the day the Lord has made; let us rejoice and be glad.
R. Alleluia.

22  The stone which the builders rejected
has become the cornerstone.
23  By the LORD has this been done;
it is wonderful in our eyes.
R. This is the day the Lord has made; let us rejoice and be glad.
R. Alleluia.

2nd Reading – Colossians 3:1-4

Brothers and sisters:
1  Therefore, if you be risen with Christ, seek the things that are above; where Christ is sitting at the right hand of God:

2  Mind the things that are above, not the things that are upon the earth.

3  For you are dead; and your life is hid with Christ in God.

4  When Christ shall appear, who is your life, then you also shall appear with him in glory.

Or 1 Corinthians 5:6B-8

Brothers and sisters:
6B  Do you not know that a little yeast leavens all the dough?

7  Purge out the old leaven, that you may be a new paste, as you are unleavened. For Christ, our Paschal Lamb is sacrificed.

8  Therefore let us feast, not with the old leaven, nor with the leaven of malice and wickedness; but with the unleavened bread of sincerity and truth.

Sequence Victimae Paschali Laudes

Christians, to the Paschal Victim
Offer your thankful praises!
A Lamb the sheep redeems;
Christ, who only is sinless,
Reconciles sinners to the Father.
Death and life have contended in that combat stupendous:
The Prince of life, who died, reigns immortal.
Speak, Mary, declaring
What you saw, wayfaring.
“The tomb of Christ, who is living,
The glory of Jesus’ resurrection;
bright angels attesting,
The shroud and napkin resting.
Yes, Christ my hope is arisen;
to Galilee he goes before you.”
Christ indeed from death is risen, our new life obtaining.
Have mercy, victor King, ever reigning!
Amen. Alleluia.

Alleluia – CF. 1 Corinthians 5:7B-8A

R. Alleluia, alleluia.
7B  Christ, our paschal lamb, has been sacrificed;
8A  let us then feast with joy in the Lord.
R. Alleluia, alleluia.

Gospel – John 20:1-9

1  AND on the first day of the week, Mary Magdalene came early, when it was yet dark, unto the sepulcher; and she saw the stone taken away from the sepulcher.

2  So she ran and went to Simon Peter and to the other disciple whom Jesus loved, and said to them, “They have taken the Lord out of the tomb, and we know not where they have laid him.

3  Peter, therefore, went out, and that other disciple and they came to the tomb.

4  And they both ran together, and that other disciple did outrun Peter, and came first to the tomb;

5  And when he stooped down, he saw the linen cloths lying; but yet he went not in.

6  When Simon Peter arrived after him, he went into the tomb and saw the burial cloths there,

7  and the cloth that had covered his head, not with the burial cloths but rolled up in a separate place.

8  Then that other disciple also went in, who came first to the tomb, and he saw and believed.

9  For as yet they knew not the scripture, that he must rise again from the dead.

OR Gospel – Matthew 28:1-10

1  AND in the end of the sabbath, when it began to dawn towards the first day of the week, came Mary Magdalene and the other Mary, to see the tomb.

2  And behold there was a great earthquake. For an angel of the Lord descended from heaven, and coming, rolled back the stone, and sat upon it.

3  His appearance was like lightning and his clothing was white as snow.

4  And for fear of him, the guards were struck with terror, and became as dead men.

5  And the angel answering, said to the women: Fear not you; for I know that you seek Jesus who was crucified.

6  He is not here, for he is risen, as he said. Come, and see the place where the Lord was laid.

7  And going quickly, tell ye his disciples that he is risen: and behold he will go before you into Galilee; there you shall see him. Lo, I have foretold it to you.

8  Then they went away quickly from the tomb, with fear and great joy, running to tell his disciples.

9  And behold Jesus met them, saying: All hail. But they came up and took hold of his feet, and adored him.

10  Then Jesus said to them: Fear not. Go, tell my brethren that they go into Galilee, there they shall see me.

Or Gospel – Mark 16:1-7

1  AND when the sabbath was past, Mary Magdalene, and Mary the mother of James, and Salome, bought sweet spices, that coming, they might anoint Jesus.

2  And very early in the morning, the first day of the week, they come to the tomb, the sun being now risen.

3  And they said one to another: Who shall roll us back the stone from the door of the tomb?

4  And looking, they saw the stone rolled back. For it was very great.

5  And entering into the tomb, they saw a young man sitting on the right side, clothed with a white robe: and they were astonished.

6  Who said to them: Be not afraid; you seek Jesus of Nazareth, who was crucified: he is risen, he is not here, behold the place where they laid him.

7  But go, tell his disciples and Peter that he will go before you into Galilee; there you shall see him, as he told you.

Or Gospel – Luke 24:13-35

At an afternoon or evening Mass.

13  That very day, the first day of the week, two of Jesus’ disciples were going to a village seven miles from Jerusalem called Emmaus,

14  and they were conversing about all the things that had occurred.

15  And it happened that while they were conversing and debating, Jesus himself drew near and walked with them,

16 but their eyes were prevented from recognizing him.

17 He asked them, “What are you discussing as you walk along?” They stopped, looking downcast.

18 One of them, named Cleopas, said to him in reply, “Are you the only visitor to Jerusalem who does not know of the things that have taken place there in these days?”

19 And he replied to them, “What sort of things?” They said to him, “The things that happened to Jesus the Nazarene, who was a prophet mighty in deed and word before God and all the people,

20 how our chief priests and rulers both handed him over to a sentence of death and crucified him.

21 But we were hoping that he would be the one to redeem Israel; and besides all this, it is now the third day since this took place.

22 Some women from our group, however, have astounded us: they were at the tomb early in the morning

23 and did not find his body; they came back and reported that they had indeed seen a vision of angels who announced that he was alive.

24 Then some of those with us went to the tomb and found things just as the women had described, but him they did not see.”

25 And he said to them, “Oh, how foolish you are! How slow of heart to believe all that the prophets spoke!

26 Was it not necessary that the Christ should suffer these things and enter into his glory?”

27 Then beginning with Moses and all the prophets, he interpreted to them what referred to him in all the Scriptures.

28 As they approached the village to which they were going, he gave the impression that he was going on farther.

29 But they urged him, “Stay with us, for it is nearly evening and the day is almost over.” So he went in to stay with them.

30 And it happened that, while he was with them at table, he took bread, said the blessing, broke it, and gave it to them.

31 With that their eyes were opened and they recognized him, but he vanished from their sight.

32 Then they said to each other, “Were not our hearts burning within us while he spoke to us on the way and opened the Scriptures to us?”

33 So they set out at once and returned to Jerusalem where they found gathered together the eleven and those with them

34 who were saying, “The Lord has truly been raised and has appeared to Simon!”

35 Then the two recounted what had taken place on the way and how he was made known to them in the breaking of bread.
