From the Exsultet

O mystery beyond our thought,

To take earth's stain away,

And lift the burden sin hath

brought,

And cleanse this coarser clay.

What deed can more sublime ap-

pear?

For sorrow seeks for grace,

And love releases mortal fear,

And death renews the race.

Death seizes on the bitter barb,

And binds herself thereto,

And life is clad in deathly garb,

And life shall rise anew.

When death through earth has

made its path,

Then all the dead shall rise,

And death, consumed by heavenly

wrath,

In groans, and lonely, dies.

St. Ambrose

"Then souls, arising with anxious desire, run, with virtue, by the bridge of the doctrine of Christ crucified and arrive at the gate, lifting up their minds in Me, and by My blood and burning with the fire of love they taste in Me, the eternal Deity, Who am to them a sea pacific with whom the souls have made so great union, and they have no movement except in Me. And being yet mortal, they taste the good of the immortals, and having yet the weight of the body, they receive the joy of the spirit."

St. Catherine of Siena

APPLYING THE READINGS TO THE LITURGY: There are nine readings and eight psalm responses assigned for this night, recounting the history of God's communion with people. While all the readings may be too much for some parishes, the integrity of Judeo-Christian salvation history must be kept intact. From Genesis to the Resurrection there is a continuity of revelation. The account of the crossing of the Red Sea must be included. Keep together the historic progression of God's salvation.
