Easter Sunday “Set your minds on things that are above, not on things that are
on earth.” COLOSSIANS 3:2
Do you put God first in all things? Possessions, money,
power, ego can easily become gods to many of us. Do a
quick check of what is important to you. Is God at the
very top of the list? If not, your priorities need to be re-
adjusted. Don’t let earthly things become a god before
Adoration Moment “The faith I have when I am in the presence of the
Blessed Sacrament is so strong that I find it impossible to
express what I feel….When the time comes to leave I
must force myself to overcome the inclination to prolong
my stay with Jesus.”

Rejoice Brothers and Sisters in Christ,
Alleluia, the word of the season. There is no really accurate translation of Alleluia, nothing that really captures what the word expresses. The closest we can get is to translate it as Praise the Lord but that
doesn’t capture what the word means, it doesn’t show the raw emotion it is supposed to express. At its
root, Alleluia is an expression of utter and complete joy, a joy that literally overflows from a person, a joy
that cannot help but burst forth into the open.
Saint Augustine once said that “A Christian should be an alleluia from head to foot.” Alleluia, we should be
filled with joy from head to foot; joy should literally be seeping out of us to those we meet. And why all
this joy? The tomb is empty Jesus Christ is Risen, He is truly Risen. Jesus passed from death to life so that
all of us could be forgiven; not just forgiven but made new, given new life with the promise of everlasting
Christ has truly risen. This is the basic fact of our faith, this is the reason for our Easter Joy and it should
cause us all to rejoice. Christ is Risen and heaven is open for us all. It is this fact of our faith that brings to
our lips the great ALLELUIA of Easter. The truth of Jesus resurrection from the dead has given every human being a true reason to rejoice. In Jesus resurrection, we have been given the promise of heaven,
God has overcome sin and death and invites us to come to Him through Christ. My prayer for everyone
on this great feast of Easter is that we may be able to feel, know and experience the true joy of Christ’s
resurrection through this Easter season and every day of our lives.
I want to thank everyone who has helped make our Triduum and Easter liturgies wonderful, uplifting, and
holy experiences. Thank you to all of our servers, readers, Eucharistic Ministers, sacristans, ushers and
musicians. I, and I am sure everyone on our parishes, deeply appreciate your service and ministry to all
three of our parishes. A special thank you goes to all of those who decorate and clean our churches;
everything was beautiful for all of our liturgies.
To end some words from St. Teresa of Calcutta: Keep the joy of the Risen Christ in your heart and share
this joy with all you meet especially your family. Be holy – let us pray.
May everyone have a peace filled and joyous Easter, and remember Christ is Risen; He is Truly Risen.

The Origin of the Regina Caeli Prayer by Andrea Phillips
From Holy Saturday to Pentecost we sing or recite one of the Church’s most joy-
ful anthems, the Regina Cæli (O, Queen of Heaven), customarily said in place of
the Angelus at twelve noon.
According to The Golden Legend, a thirteenth century work on the lives of the
Saints, Pope Saint Gregory the Great in the 6th century was leading a procession
asking for relief from a pestilence afflicting the population of Rome. Being car-
ried in the procession was an icon of the Blessed Virgin reputedly painted by
Saint Luke. Suddenly, the air was filled with a heavenly perfume dispelling the
pestilence. Looking up, Saint Gregory beheld angels singing: “O, Queen of
Heaven rejoice, Alleluia! For He whom you deserved to bear, Alleluia! Has risen
as He said, Alleluia!” To which the holy Pope added: “O, pray to God for us, Alle-
At the same time, the holy pontiff saw the angel of death sheathing his sword
atop the Hill of Hadrian, today the Castle of Sant’Angelo.
Since then this story has been associated with the origins of the Regina Caeli.
The idea is to rejoice with Our Blessed Lady that her Son, after a grueling passion and frightful death, is
alive again. While the prayer of the Angelus celebrates Jesus’ Incarnation, the Regina Caeli celebrates His
Resurrection and “congratulates” the Mother on her Son’s victory over sin and death.
THE REGINA CAELI
V. Queen of Heaven, rejoice, alleluia.
R. For He whom you did merit to bear, alleluia.
V. Has risen, as He said, alleluia.
R. Pray for us to God, alleluia.
V. Rejoice and be glad, O Virgin Mary, alleluia.
R. For the Lord is truly risen, alleluia.
Let us pray:
O God, Who gave joy to the world through the Resur-
rection of Thy Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ, grant we beseech Thee, that through the intercession of the
Virgin Mary, His Mother, we may obtain the joys of everlasting Life. Through the same Christ Our Lord.
