Peter proceeded to speak and said:
"You know what has happened all over Judea,
beginning in Galilee after the baptism
that John preached,
how God anointed Jesus of Nazareth
with the Holy Spirit and power.
He went about doing good
and healing all those oppressed by the devil,
for God was with him.
We are witnesses of all that he did
both in the country of the Jews and in Jerusalem.
They put him to death by hanging him on a tree.
This man God raised on the third day and granted that he be
not to all the people, but to us,
the witnesses chosen by God in advance,
who ate and drank with him after he rose from the dead.
He commissioned us to preach to the people
and testify that he is the one appointed by God
as judge of the living and the dead.
To him all the prophets bear witness,
that everyone who believes in him
will receive forgiveness of sins through his name."
Brothers and sisters:
If then you were raised with Christ, seek what is above,
where Christ is seated at the right hand of God.
Think of what is above, not of what is on earth.
For you have died, and your life is hidden with Christ in God.
When Christ your life appears,
then you too will appear with him in glory.
Gospel LK 24:1-12
At daybreak on the first day of the week the women who had come
from Galilee with Jesus took the spices they had prepared and went
to the tomb. They found the stone rolled away from the tomb;
but when they entered, they did not find the body of the Lord
While they were puzzling over this, behold, two men in dazzling
garments appeared to them. They were terrified and bowed their
faces to the ground. They said to them, "Why do you seek the living
one among the dead? He is not here, but he has been raised.
Remember what he said to you while he was still in Galilee, that
the Son of Man must be handed over to sinners and be crucified, and
rise on the third day." And they remembered his words. Then they
returned from the tomb and announced all these things to the eleven
and to all the others. The women were Mary Magdalene, Joanna, and
Mary the mother of James; the others who accompanied them also told
this to the apostles,but their story seemed like nonsense and they
did not believe them. But Peter got up and ran to the tomb, bent
down, and saw the burial cloths alone; then he went home amazed at
what had happened.
