FIRST READING:
Acts 10: 34, 37-43 "To him all the prophets bear witness, that everyone who believes in him will receive forgiveness of sins through his name."
RESPONSORIAL PSALM:
 Ps.  118 "This is the day the Lord has made, let us rejoice and be glad."
SECOND READING: 
Col. 3: 1-4 "Look for the things that are in heaven, where Christ is."
Or
SECOND READING:
1 Cor. 5: 6-8 "Throw away the old yeast, that you may be new dough."
SEQUENCE:
"Grave-clothes I saw where none  lay dead, the cloth that once had veiled his head!"
 
GOSPEL ACCLAMATION:
1 Cor. 5: 7-8 "Christ. our paschal lamb, has been sacrificed; let us then feast with joy in the Lord ."
GOSPEL:  Jn. 20: 1-9
"When Simon Peter arrived after him, he went into the tomb and saw the burial cloths there, and the cloth that had covered his head, not with the burial cloths but rolled up in a separate place."
The gospel from the Easter Vigil may be read in place of this. At an afternoon Mass, another gospel  may be read: Lk. 24: 13-35
scriptural topics:  solemnity, glory, joy, resurrection, life, hope, baptism. 
FOCUS: "Jesus of Nazareth, who was crucified, has risen."
REFLECTION: We are Easter people and alleluia is our song.
"A Christian is an alleluia from head to foot."  St. Augustine of Hippo
"You are a fire that takes away the coldness, illuminates the mind with its light, and causes me to know your  truth. And I know that you are beauty and wisdom itself.  The food of angels, you gave yourself to man in the fire of  your love."
St. Catherine of Siena
"God wants us to sing alleluia and to sing it truthfully from our hearts... Let us sing alleluia with our voice and our heart, with our mouth and with our life."               St. Augustine
"O mystery beyond our thought,
  To take earth's stain away,
And lift the burden sin hath
   brought,
  And cleanse this coarser clay...."
St. Ambrose
"Strive to keep in order your thoughts about worldly concerns.  Try to arrive at a state in which  your body can carry out its usual work, while leaving you free to be always with the Lord in spirit.  The merciful Lord will give you freedom from cares, and where this freedom prevails everything is done in its own time, and nothing is a worry or a burden. See, ask—and it will be given."             Theophane the Recluse
 
APPLYING THE READINGS TO THE LITURGY:  The images of light and rebirth prevail. The first reading summarizes the basis of our Christian faith: Christ has died, Christ is risen, Christ will come again. The second reading involves getting rid of the old life and replacing it with a new source,  that which is initiated in Christian baptism. 
The profession of faith is replaced by the rite of renewal, of baptismal vows, thus reinforcing the premise that we must be reborn as followers of Christ. Make full use of incense, the presence of the paschal candle, and the use of the rite of blessing and sprinkling with Holy Water to reaffirm with our senses that which we feel in our hearts. The gospel acclamation: "Christ has become our paschal sacrifice; let us feast with joy in the Lord," should be given heightened attention as this acclamation sums up the Easter message.
Sample General Intercessions:
Introduction—My dear brothers and sisters, with joy at Christ's rising from the dead, let us turn to God our Father in prayer:
• For religious and secular leaders throughout the world, that they may lead and serve with the love of the risen Christ;
• For true and lasting world peace, that the peace of Christ  will permeate all the ends of the earth;
• For our suffering sisters and  brothers, that their sorrow will be turned into lasting joy;
• For our community and families, that we may have the faith and strength to bear witness to Christ's resurrection.
