THE EASTER VIGIL (A, B, C) Lectionary # 41A

As Ash Wednesday gave a penitential tone to all of Lent, so the Vigil gives an initiatory tone to the Easter celebration. Its readings and rituals are best understood in communities that are initiating new adult members. For music suggestions, see Easter Day and other suggestions for the Easter Season. For music for the initiation rites, see the suggestions for the sprinkling rite on Easter Day and the suggestions for the Solemnity of the Baptism of the Lord, Lectionary #21.

The readings of the Vigil tell the story of salvation especially as it relates to water. Thus the first reading (Genesis 1:1–2:2) tells of creation as it emerges from “the waters,” and the psalm (Ps 104) sings of God's care for creation through water. The third reading (Exodus 14:15–15:1, a required reading) tells of salvation from slavery through the waters of the sea, and it is followed by the “Song of Moses and Miriam” (Exodus 15:1-18) which praises God as the victor who hurled Pharaoh’s chariots and army “into the sea.” Rejoice in Isaiah's invitation to “come to the water” in the fifth reading (Isaiah 55:1-11) and in its psalm (Isaiah 12), inviting us to “draw water at the fountain of salvation.” Think about Israel's use of water in purification rituals as described in the seventh reading (Ezekiel 36:16-28) and the “deer longing for running streams” in its psalm (Ps 42). All of these readings, of course, come to bear on the Christian understanding of baptism (Romans 6:3-11).


Other Vigil readings speak about relationships that help us understand God's relationship to us: a father and son (Genesis 22:1-18), a husband and wife (Isaiah 54:5-14), the connection that wise people feel to Wisdom and that Israel feels to the Torah as the incarnation of divine wisdom (Baruch 3:9-15, 32–4:4) and, in the Gospel, the relationship between the risen Christ and the women who are first witnesses of the resurrection (Matthew 28:1-10).


Psalm (117) 118
See the suggestions for Easter Day below.



EASTER DAY (A, B, C) Lectionary #42


A lot of parishes go all out for the Triduum, reaching a dramatic peak at the Vigil and ignoring the actual conclusion of the Triduum at Easter Vespers. Consequently, a lot of places have little energy left for the Masses on Easter Day. Yet for most parishioners, Mass during the day—not the Vigil—is “Easter,” and Holy Week consists of Passion Sunday, possibly Good Friday, and Easter Day Mass. We need to plan a rich celebration of all the Masses of Easter, so that all believers may share in the joy of the resurrection.


Acts 10:34, 37-43. Peter's sermon is a summary of the early preaching of the Gospel and a reminder that our faith depends solely on the witness of those “who ate and drank with [Jesus] after he rose from the dead.”


Psalm of the Day: Ps (117) 118
This individual song of thanksgiving becomes for us Jesus’ own celebration of the resurrection and our assurance that the “rejected stone” of the crucified Christ has become the “cornerstone” of our faith.

Colossians 3:1-4. Paul's understanding of Baptism is that it grants us a share in Christ's death as a promise that we will one day share in the resurrection.


1 Corinthians 5:6-8. Christ our Passover has been sacrificed! Let us keep the feast. This alternative second reading reminds us that the Eucharist is an Easter sacrament.


The "Victimae Paschali," a required part of the Easter Day celebration, should be sung before the Alleluia. Though it is intended to be a hymn that stands on its own, it might also accompany the procession with the Gospel Book. So during the singing, if your liturgical space permits it, you might want to process the Gospel Book through the congregation and use incense (if you can get away with it). The sequence is long enough that you could have a wonderful procession, culminating in the Easter Alleluia.

John 20:1-9. In the Eastern Churches, Mary Magdalene is honored as the “witness to the resurrection and co-equal of the Apostles.” To her witness the fourth Gospel adds the testimony of Peter and the beloved disciple.
