3rd Sunday after Paschal Sunday (EF)


This Sunday is the 3rd Sunday after Paschal Sunday. In the Extraordinary Form this Sunday, the Introit and Offertory are cries of joy in response to the Resurrection of Our Lord. The Communion is taken from the day's Gospel (Jn. 16:16-22) which is taken from a discourse given by Our Lord to His apostles after the Last Supper on Holy Thursday. The gospel primarily is an anticipation of the joy the apostles will experience at Christ's Resurrection, but it also looks forward to the Ascension which we are approaching.
