Father: Christ is risen, Alleluia.
Family: He is truly risen, Alleluia.

Father: Let us pray. O God,
through this paschal solemnity Thou hast bestowed
upon the world Thy healing grace;
pursue Thy people, we beseech Thee,
with heavenly gifts so that we may obtain
perfect freedom and arrive at life eternal.
Through Christ our Lord.
Family: Alleluia, Alleluia.

Father: And behold two of them went the same day
to a town which was sixty furlongs from Jerusalem
named Emmaus and they talked together
of all these things which had happened.
And it came to pass
that while they talked and reasoned with
themselves,
Jesus Himself also, drawing near, went with them.
But their eyes were held that they should not know
Him,
and he said to them: What are these discourses
that you hold with one another as you walk,
and are sad?

And one of them whose name was Cleophas
answering said to Him:
Art Thou only a stranger in Jerusalem
And hast not known the things that have been done
there
in these days?
To whom He said: What things?
And they said: Concerning Jesus of Nazareth
who was a prophet
mighty in work and word
before God and all the people;
and how our chief priests and princes
delivered Him to be condemned to death,
and crucified Him.
But we hoped that it was He that should have
redeemed Israel.

And now besides all this,
today is the third day since these things were
done.
Yea, and certain women also of our company
affrighted us;
who before it was light were at the sepulchre
and not finding His body came
saying that they had also seen a vision of angels
who say He is alive.
And some of our people went to the sepulchre
and found it so as the women had said,
but Him they found not.
Then He said to them:

O foolish and slow of heart to believe
in all things which the prophets have spoken.

Ought not the Christ to have suffered these things
and so enter into His glory?
And beginning at Moses and all the prophets
He expounded to them in all the Scriptures
the things that were concerning Him. [Luke 24:13-27]
