Easter Sunday: Feast of the Resurrection of Our Lord

Beginning with hymns and antiphons of light, alleluias and Easter joy, the fifty-day feast of Easter traditionally commences with the chants at Lauds. The entire Eucharistic liturgy that follows reflects the joyful news of Christ’s resurrection from the dead and our salvation. This feast is the pinnacle of the Christian liturgical year and is celebrated with procession, music, art, special liturgy and Gregorian chants that echo our joy that in Christ “death is swallowed up in victory!” By the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ, we receive new birth, new hope, and the gift of eternal life.
