On Sunday last, the second Sunday of Easter, we heard the Easter dismissal for the last time until the end of the Easter Season. It was sung each day of the Easter Octave and will be heard again at the end of the Liturgy at Pentecost.
It combines the sense of joy at the Resurrection and assurance that we share in it.
It also, as with our every dismissal from Mass, should remind us that we do not just ‘go’ from Mass but are sent from Mass with purpose – to proclaim the Gospel and share the Good News.
- How today will you seek to proclaim the Gospel and share the Good News.
