Paschaltide Devotions in Honor of the Resurrection of Our Divine Lord


Instruction and Reflection on Paschaltide

"Christ, our Passover, has been sacrificed." (1 Cor. 5:7) Glory be to the Father...

The Resurrection Foretold

"My Flesh dwells in obscurity. For Thou wilt not abandon Me to the underworld; nor wilt Thou permit Thy Holy One to see corruption." (Psalm 15:9-10)

"For even as Jonas was in the belly of the fish three days and three nights, so will the Son of Man be three days and three nights in the heart of the earth." (Matt. 20:18-19)

"Destroy this temple, and in three days I will raise it up." (John 2:19) Our Father...

"After I have risen, I will go before you into Galilee..." (Mark 14:28)

Let us Pray. Grant, we beseech Thee, O Almighty God, that we who celebrate the Feast of Easter, may with Thy help show its effects in our lives; through Christ Our Lord. Amen.

Sequence: "Victimae Paschali Laudes"
Sunday and Thursday

Christ the Lord is risen today, Christians, haste your vows to pay;
Offer ye your praises meet at the Paschal Victim's feet.

For the sheep the Lamb hath bled, sinless in the sinner's stead.
Christ the Lord is risen on high; now He lives, no more to die.

Christ, the Victim undefiled, man to God hath reconciled;
When in strange and awful strife met together Death and Life;

Christians, on this happy day haste with joy your vows to pay.
Christ the Lord is risen on high; now He lives, no more to die.

Say, O wond'ring Mary, say, what thou sawest on thy way.
"I beheld where Jesus had lain, empty tomb and Angels twain;

I beheld the glory bright of the Risen Lord of Light:
Christ my hope is risen again; now He lives, and lives to reign."

Christ, Who once for sinners bled, now the First-born from the dead,
Throned in endless might and power, lives and reigns forevermore.

Hail, Eternal Hope on high! Hail, Thou King of victory!
Hail, Thou Prince of Life adored! Help and save us, gracious Lord.
Amen. Alleluia!

"Worthy is the Lamb Who was slain to receive power and divinity and wisdom and strength and honor and glory and blessing. (Apoc. 5:12)

Let us Pray. Accept, we beseech Thee, O Lord, the prayers of Thy people with the oblation of sacrifice; that these Paschal mysteries which we have begun may by Thy grace afford us a healing remedy unto everlasting life; through Christ Our Lord. Amen.

Canticle

V. "The right hand of the Lord has wrought strength; the right hand of the Lord has raised me up. Blessed is He Who cometh in the Name of the Lord. The Lord is truly God and He has shown forth unto us." (Psalm 117:16,26)

R. "This is the day which the Lord has made. Let us rejoice and be glad in it." (Psalm 107:24)

V. "Give glory to the Lord and call upon His Name; declare His deeds among the nations."
(Psalm 107:1)

R. "Sing ye to the Lord a new canticle; sing to the Lord through the whole world." (Ps. 95::1)

To the Disciples at the Lake of Genesareth--

"When day was now breaking, Jesus stood on the shore; yet the disciples did not know that it was Jesus. Then Jesus said to them, 'Young men, have you any fish?' They answered Him, 'No.' He said to them, 'Cast the net to the right of the boat and you will find them.' They cast, therefore, and now they were unable to draw it up for the great number of fishes. The disciple whom Jesus loved said therefore to Peter, 'It is the Lord.' Simon Peter, therefore, hearing that it was the Lord, girt his tunic about Him and threw himself into the sea. But the other disciples came with the boat... When, therefore, they had landed, they saw a fire ready, and a fish laid upon it, and bread. Jesus said to them, 'Come and breakfast.' And none of those reclining dared ask Him, 'Who art Thou?' knowing that it was the Lord. And Jesus came and took bread, and gave it to them, and likewise the fish..."

"A third time Jesus said to Peter, 'Simon, son of John, dost thou love Me?' And He said to Him, 'Lord, Thou knowest all things, Thou knowest that I love Thee.' He said to him, 'Feed My sheep.'" (John 21:17.)

Let us Pray. O God, Who dost gladden us by the yearly Feastday of Our Lord's Resurrection, deign to grant that we who celebrate these solemnities in time may reach heavenly joys in eternity; through the same Christ Our Lord. Amen.

Hymn -- Regina Cæli Laetare 

Queen of Heaven, rejoice; Alleluia!
For He Whom thou didst merit to bear; Alleluia!
Has risen as He said; Alleluia!
Pray for us to God. Alleluia!

V. Rejoice and be glad, O Virgin Mary, Alleluia;
R. For the Lord has truly risen, Alleluia!

Let us Pray. O God, Who by the Resurrection of Thy Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ, has vouchsafed to make glad the whole world, grant, we beseech Thee, that through the intercession of the Virgin Mary, His Mother, we may attain the joys of eternal life; through the same Christ Our Lord. Amen.
