The Proclamation of the WordA READING FROM THE BOOK OF ACTS 10: 34-43Peter began to speak to them: “I truly understandthat God shows no partiality, but in every nationanyone who fears him and does what is right isacceptable to him. You know the message he sent tothe people of Israel, preaching peace by Jesus Christ
—he is Lord of all. That message spread throughoutJudea, beginning in Galilee after the baptism thatJohn announced: how God anointed Jesus ofNazareth with the Holy Spirit and with power; howhe went about doing good and healing all who wereoppressed by the devil, for God was withhim. We are witnesses to all that he did both inJudea and in Jerusalem. They put him to death byhanging him on a tree; but God raised him on thethird day and allowed him to appear, not to all thepeople but to us who were chosen by God aswitnesses, and who ate and drank with him after herose from the dead. He commanded us to preach tothe people and totestify that he is the one ordained by God as judgeof the living and the dead. All the prophets testifyabout him that everyone who believes in himreceives forgiveness of sins through hisname.”The word of the Lord: Thanks be to God. PSALM 118: 1-2, 14-24 (said)Give thanks to the Lord, for he is good; his mercy endures for ever.Let Israel now proclaim, “His mercy endures for ever.”The Lord is my strength and my song, and he has become my salvation.There is a sound of exultation and victoryin the tents of the righteous:“The right hand of the Lord has triumphed! the right hand of the Lord is exalted!
the right hand of the Lord has triumphed!”I shall not die, but live, and declare the works of the Lord.The Lord has punished me sorely, but he did not hand me over to death.Open for me the gates of righteousness; I will enter them; I will offer thanks to theLord.“This is the gate of the Lord;He who is righteous may enter.” I will give thanks to you, for you answered me and have become mysalvation.The same stone which the builders rejected has become the chief cornerstone.This is the Lord’s doing, and it is marvellous in our eyes.On this day the Lord has acted; we will rejoice and be glad in it.Glory be to the Father, and to the Son: and to the Holy SpiritAs it was in the beginning, is now and ever shall be: world without end. Amen.A READING FROM THE FIRST LETTER OF PAUL TO THECORINTHIANS 15: 19-26If for this life only we have hoped in Christ, we are ofall people most to be pitied. But in fact Christ hasbeen raised from the dead, the ﬁrst fruits of thosewho have died. For since death came through ahuman being, the resurrection of the dead has alsocome through a human being; for as all die in Adam,
so all will be made alive in Christ. But each in hisown order: Christ the ﬁrst fruits, then at his comingthose who belong to Christ. Then comes the end,when he hands over the kingdom to Godthe Father, after he has destroyed every ruler andevery authority and power. For he must reign untilhe has put all his enemies under his feet. The lastenemy to be destroyed is death.The word of the Lord: Thanks be to God.The GospelGospeller: The Lord be with you.All: And with thy Spirit.Gospeller: The Holy Gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ according to John 20: 1-18.All: Glory to you, Lord Jesus Christ.Early on the ﬁrst day of the week, while it was stilldark, Mary Magdalene came to the tomb and sawthat the stone had been removed from the tomb. Soshe ran and went to Simon Peterand the other disciple, the one whom Jesus loved,and said to them, “They have taken the Lord out ofthe tomb, and we do not know where they have laidhim.” Then Peter and the other disciple set out andwent toward the tomb. The two were runningtogether, but the other disciple outran Peter andreached the tomb ﬁrst. He bent down to look in andsaw the linen wrappings lying there, but he did notgo in. Then Simon Peter came, following him, andwent into the tomb. He saw the linen wrappingslying there, and the cloth that had been on Jesus’head, not lying with the linen wrappings but rolled
up in a place by itself. Then the other disciple, whoreached the tomb ﬁrst, also went in, and he saw andbelieved; for as yet they did not understand thescripture, that he must rise from the dead. Then thedisciples returned to their homes. But Mary stoodweeping outside the tomb. As she wept, she bentover to look into the tomb; and she saw two angelsin white, sitting where the body of Jesus had beenlying, one at the head and theother at the feet. They said to her, “Woman, why areyou weeping?” She said to them, “They have takenaway my Lord, and I do not know where they havelaid him.” When she had said this, she turned aroundand saw Jesus standing there, but she did not knowthat it was Jesus. Jesus said to her, “Woman, why areyou weeping? Whom are you looking for?” Supposinghim to be the gardener, she said to him, “Sir, if youhave carried him away, tell me where you have laidhim, and I will take him away.” Jesus said to her,“Mary!” She turned and said to him inHebrew, “Rabbouni!” (which means Teacher). Jesussaid to her, “Do not hold on to me, because I havenot yet ascended to the Father. But go to mybrothers and say to them, ‘I am ascending to myFather and your Father, to my God and your God.’”Mary Magdalene went and announced to thedisciples, “I have seenthe Lord”: and she told them that he had said thesethings to her.Gospeller: The Gospel of Christ:All: Praise to you, Lord Jesus Christ.
