The Responsorial Psalm tomorrow, Easter Day, is sung as the song of Christ: his song celebrating the Resurrection.
This day was made by the Lord: we rejoice and are glad.
Alleluia, alleluia, alleluia!
Give thanks to the Lord for he is good,
for his love has no end.
Let the sons of Israel say:
‘His love has no end.’
The Lord’s right hand has triumphed;
his right hand raised me up.
I shall not die, I shall live
and recount his deeds.
The stone which the builders rejected
has become the corner stone.
This is the work of the Lord,
a marvel in our eyes.
It is also the song of the Church. It is the song Jesus urges us to sing as we share in his new life – through our Baptism, which achieves for us what faith promises to us; through our communion in word and Eucharist; through our continuing in the ministry of love of neighbour.
He sings, and it is our privilege to share in the song.
- What might need healing in you that you might share more fully in his song?
- What might you do more lovingly this Easter?
