    FIRST LECTURE OF THE MASS

    1 Jn 1:1-4

    Beloved:
    What was from the beginning,
    what we have heard,
    what we have seen with our eyes,
    what we looked upon
    and touched with our hands
    concerns the Word of life —
    for the life was made visible;
    we have seen it and testify to it
    and proclaim to you the eternal life
    that was with the Father and was made visible to us—
    what we have seen and heard
    we proclaim now to you,
    so that you too may have fellowship with us;
    for our fellowship is with the Father
    and with his Son, Jesus Christ.
    We are writing this so that our joy may be complete.

    RESPONSORIAL PSALM

    PS 97:1-2, 5-6, 11-12

    R. (12) Rejoice in the Lord, you just!
    The LORD is king;let the earth rejoice;
    let the many isles be glad.
    Clouds and darkness are around him,
    justice and judgment are the foundation of his throne.
    R. Rejoice in the Lord, you just!
    The mountains melt like wax before the LORD,
    before the LORD of all the earth.
    The heavens proclaim his justice,
    and all peoples see his glory.
    R. Rejoice in the Lord, you just!
    Light dawns for the just;
    and gladness, for the upright of heart.
    Be glad in the LORD, you just,
    and give thanks to his holy name.
    R. Rejoice in the Lord, you just!

    GOSPEL OF THE MASS

    Jn 20:1a and 2-8

    On the first day of the week,
    Mary Magdalene ran and went to Simon Peter
    and to the other disciple whom Jesus loved, and told them,
    “They have taken the Lord from the tomb,
    and we do not know where they put him.”
    So Peter and the other disciple went out and came to the tomb.
    They both ran, but the other disciple ran faster than Peter
    and arrived at the tomb first;
    he bent down and saw the burial cloths there, but did not go in.
    When Simon Peter arrived after him,
    he went into the tomb and saw the burial cloths there,
    and the cloth that had covered his head,
    not with the burial cloths but rolled up in a separate place.
    Then the other disciple also went in,
    the one who had arrived at the tomb first,
    and he saw and believed.
