Easter Sunday - The Resurrection of the Lord
Domingo de Pascua - La Resurrección del Señor

Gospel Key Words: Saw and believed. Two words are the heart of St. John’s Gospel – and of this whole Lenten/Easter season: to see and believe. The glory that is given Jesus by the Father is revealed in all its splendor and power. He is risen. Alleluia! In coming to the Messianic table, we already share in the splendor of Christ’s glory. How can we do anything less than see and believe? How can we utter anything less than Alleluia!  Alleluia!  Alleluia!

Gospel Meditations
- Christ is Risen!  Alleluia,  Alleluia!
- “Then the other disciple also went in ... and he saw and believed.”  (Jn 20:8)

Meditaciones del Evangelio
