A. Introductiona) To the Holy Mass
Dear Sisters and Brothers in Christ,
Good morning, Alleluia! Christ is truly risen today!
We are celebrating Easter Sunday, the Rising of Christ, our Lord and Savior, from the dead, to gain for us Divine Mercy and forgiveness.
We thank our Lord Jesus Christ for His immense love with which He died on the Cross so that we might live in God’s peace and lasting happiness.
We thank God the Father much more for calling our sisters and brothers, who are about to be baptized in this Holy Mass, to share in the heavenly Feast of His Word and Christ’s Body and Blood.
We pray for them to be faithful to their commitment to living up to the Christian values. We also pray for ourselves to be always worthy witnesses to the Risen Lord’s saving power.
Kindly all stand for the entrance hymn.
