Easter

The sound of Alleluias fills the 50 days of Easter Sunday to Pentecost as we give thanks for the gift of our salvation. The Easter Triduum recalls the passion and resurrection of Christ in the sacred journey from Holy Thursday to Easter Vigil. "Dying he destroyed our death. Rising he restored our life."

Sunday Readings and Backgrounds

Thirty-first Sunday in Ordinary Time

Reading I : Wisdom 11:22-12:2

To God, the universe is a drop of morning dew.

  • Wisdom literature in the Bible is a rich source of spirituality.
  • In this passage, we are assure that God will have mercy on us always.
  • We are reminded that God created all that is, and loves all that he created!

Reading II : 2 Thessalonians 1:11-2:2

We pray for you always.

  • Paul prays that the community in Thessalonica may be faithful to the message preached about Jesus Christ.
  • He addresses the rumor in the community that Christ would be returning soon, a common belief in the early years of the Faith.
  • He urges them not to be agitated by this rumor, but to go on living their lives faithfully.

Gospel : Luke 19:1-10

Zacchaeus wanted to see Jesus.

  • Here we see Jesus' compassion and sense of justice reach a peak.
  • He demonstrates his love of the sinner by eating with them, something that would have been seen by his detractors as very out-of-place for a rabbi such as Jesus.
  • But as usual, he persists and teaches a valuable lesson: take in the outcast and sinner first and they will later be healed.
