Gospel: John 20: 1-9
In our first reading, we can imagine Peter exclaiming the word as he said, “We are witnesses of all that He did…ALLELUIA!” And Paul in our second reading, “Seek what is above, ALLELUIA!” While reading the seven sentences in John’s Easter Gospel, it seems fitting to proclaim ALLELUIA at the end of each sentence. If we focus on that one single, solemn ALLELUIA, in prayerful repetition, surely our spirits will be raised. As St. Augustine says, “We should be Alleluia people from head to toe”!
