Liturgy of the Word First Reading Responsorial Psalm
Acts of the Apostles 2: 42—47 Psalm 118
I Peter 1: 3—9
John 20: 19—31
Nicene Creed I believe in one God, the Father almighty, maker of heaven and earth, of all things visible and invisible. I believe in one Lord Jesus Christ, the Only Begotten Son of God, born of the Father before all ages. God from God, Light from Light, true God from true God, begotten, not made, consubstantial with the Father; through him all things were made. For us men and for our salvation he came down from heaven, (At the words that follow, up to and including and became man, all bow) and by the Holy Spirit was incarnate of the Virgin Mary, and became man. For our sake he was crucified under Pontius Pilate, he suffered death and was buried, and rose again on the third day in accordance with the Scriptures. He ascended into heaven and is seated at the right hand of the Father. He will come again in glory to judge the living and the dead and his kingdom will have no end. I believe in the Holy Spirit, the Lord, the giver of life, who proceeds from the Father and the Son, who with the Father and the Son is adored and glorified, who has spoken through the prophets. I believe in one, holy, catholic and apostolic Church. I confess one Baptism for the forgiveness of sins and I look forward to the resurrection of the dead and the life of the world to come. Amen. Universal Prayer Please respond:
Risen Savior, hear our prayer.
Liturgy of the Eucharist Presentation and Preparation of the Gifts Verse 1 In Christ alone my hope is found He is my light my strength my song This Cornerstone this solid Ground Firm through the fiercest drought and storm What heights of love what depths of peace When fears are stilled when strivings cease My Comforter my All in All Here in the love of Christ I stand
In Christ Alone Verse 4 No guilt in life no fear in death This is the power of Christ in me From life's first cry to final breath Jesus commands my destiny No power of hell no scheme of man Can ever pluck me from His hand Till He returns or calls me home Here in the power of Christ I'll stand

COMMUNION RITE The Lord’s Prayer The Rite of Peace
Act of Spiritual Communion My Jesus, I believe that You are present in the Most Holy Sacrament. I love You above all things, and I desire to receive You into my soul. Since I cannot at this moment receive You sacramentally, come at least spiritually into my heart. I embrace You as if You were already there and unite myself wholly to You. Never permit me to be separated from You. Amen.
Thanksgiving after Communion We will sing the Latin and English text.

CONCLUDING RITE Solemn Blessing and Dismissal V. May almighty God bless you through today’s Easter Solemnity and, in his compassion, defend you from every assault of sin. R. Amen. V.
And may he, who restores you to eternal life in the Resurrection of his Only Begotten, endow you with the prize of immortality.
R. Amen. V.
Now that the days of the Lord’s Passion have drawn to a close, May you who celebrate the gladness of the Paschal Feast come With Christ’s help, and exulting in spirit, to those feasts that are celebrated in eternal joy.
