A Reading from the Book of Isaiah

On this mountain the Lord of hosts will make for all peoples a
feast of rich food, a feast of well-aged wines, of rich food filled
with marrow, of well-aged wines strained clear. And he will
destroy on this mountain the shroud that is cast over all peoples,
the sheet that is spread over all nations; he will swallow up
death forever. Then the Lord God will wipe away the tears from
all faces, and the disgrace of his people he will take away from
all the earth, for the Lord has spoken. It will be said on that day,
Lo, this is our God; we have waited for him, so that he might
save us. This is the Lord for whom we have waited; let us be
glad and rejoice in his salvation. (Isaiah 25:6-9)

       The Word of the Lord. Thanks be to God.
Psalm 118

Refrain: On this day the Lord has acted; we will rejoice and
be glad. Alleluia!

The Lord is my strength and my song,
And he has become my salvation.
There is a sound of exultation and victory
In 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. Refrain.

I will give thanks to you, for you answered me
And have become my salvation.
The same stone which the builders rejected
Has become the chief cornerstone. Refrain.

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. Refrain.
A Reading from the Book of Acts

Then Peter began to speak to the Gentiles: "I truly understand
that God shows no partiality, but in every nation anyone who
fears him and does what is right is acceptable to him. You know
the message he sent to the people of Israel, preaching peace by
Jesus Christ - he is Lord of all. That message spread throughout
Judea, beginning in Galilee after the baptism that John
announced: how God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy
Spirit and with power; how he went about doing good and
healing all who were oppressed by the devil, for God was with
him. We are witnesses to all that he did both in Judea and in
Jerusalem. They put him to death by hanging him on a tree; but
God raised him on the third day and allowed him to appear, not
to all the people but to us who were chosen by God as
witnesses, and who ate and drank with him after he rose from
the dead. He commanded us to preach to the people and to
testify that he is the one ordained by God as judge of the living
and the dead. All the prophets testify about him that everyone
who believes in him receives forgiveness of sins through his
name." (Acts 10:34-43)

       The Word of the Lord. Thanks be to God.
The Gospel

       The Holy Gospel is written in the twentieth chapter of
       the Gospel according to Saint John beginning at the 1st
       verse. (BCP)
       Glory be to thee, O Lord. (BCP)

       The Holy Gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ according to
       John. (BAS)
       Glory to you, Lord Jesus Christ. (BAS)

Early on the first day of the week, while it was still dark, Mary
Magdalene came to the tomb and saw that the stone had been
removed from the tomb. So she ran and went to Simon Peter
and the other disciple, the one whom Jesus loved, and said to
them, "They have taken the Lord out of the tomb, and we do not
know where they have laid him."

Then Peter and the other disciple set out and went toward the
tomb. The two were running together, but the other disciple
outran Peter and reached the tomb first. He bent down to look in
and saw the linen wrappings lying there, but he did not go in.
Then Simon Peter came, following him, and went into the tomb.
He saw the linen wrappings lying 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, who
reached the tomb first, also went in, and he saw and believed;
for as yet they did not understand the scripture, that he must rise
from the dead.

Then the disciples returned to their homes. But Mary stood
weeping outside the tomb. As she wept, she bent over to look
into the tomb; and she saw two angels in white, sitting where
the body of Jesus had been lying, one at the head and the other
at the feet. They said to her, "Woman, why are you weeping?"
She said to them, "They have taken away my Lord, and I do not
know where they have laid him."
When she had said this, she turned around and saw Jesus
standing there, but she did not know that it was Jesus. Jesus said
to her, "Woman, why are you weeping? Whom are you looking
for?" Supposing him to be the gardener, she said to him, "Sir, if
you have carried him away, tell me where you have laid him,
and I will take him away." Jesus said to her, "Mary!" She turned
and said to him in Hebrew, "Rabbouni!" (which means
Teacher). Jesus said to her, "Do not hold on to me, because I
have not yet ascended to the Father. But go to my brothers and
say to them, 'I am ascending to my Father and your Father, to
my god and your God.'" Mary Magdalene went and announced
to the disciples, "I have seen the Lord"; and she told them that
he had said these things to her. (John 20:1-18)

       The Gospel of Christ.
       Praise be to thee, O Christ. (BCP)
       Praise to you, Lord Jesus Christ. (BAS)
                      The Calendar
Easter is the greatest and oldest feast of the Christian
Church. In the Early Church, new Christians were baptized
on Easter morning after keeping vigil all night. The name
“Easter” may be connected to the Anglo-Saxon spring
goddess Eostre, and it appears that Easter, like Christmas,
replaced an older festival. The celebration with Easter eggs
is similarly ancient. The date of Easter ranges between 21
March and 25 April, and is determined by the Paschal Full
Moon. There were a number of quarrels over how to set the
date of Easter, due to differences in the length of
astronomical cycles used to calculate the date of arrival of
the Paschal Moon. These issues were not settled in Britain
until the 7th century. Easter is celebrated on a different day
in the Eastern Church, because they still use the Julian
calendar, while we use the Gregorian calendar. This can
introduce a gap of over a month (as in 2008) between the
dates of the festival in the churches.
                 Facts About Worship

Today is Easter Sunday, the holiest day of the Christian year.
Easter celebrates a defining belief of Christianity: that Jesus
Christ, God’s own Son, rose from the dead after dying for
our sin. This week, we have walked through the events
leading up to the cross: observing the betrayal, trial, and
crucifixion of Jesus. Today however, we celebrate the fact
that these things did not have victory over Christ. Sin did its
worst, but could not defeat Him. Even death—the power that
defeats all mortals--could not finally defeat God’s Son. By
rising from the dead, our Lord shows us that He has the
power to break the hold which sin and death have over us as
well. In Him, we do not need to fear these things. In Him, we
too will find victory over every evil thing that binds us.
