Easter Tuesday All pre-Gospel readings


First reading: Acts 2:36-41

On the day of Pentecost, Peter spoke to the Jews: ‘The whole House of Israel can be certain that God has made this Jesus whom you crucified both Lord and Christ.’

Hearing this, they were cut to the heart and said to Peter and the apostles, ‘What must we do, brothers?’ ‘You must repent,’ Peter answered ‘and every one of you must be baptised in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your sins, and you will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit. The promise that was made is for you and your children, and for all those who are far away, for all those whom the Lord our God will call to himself.’ He spoke to them for a long time using many arguments, and he urged them, ‘Save yourselves from this perverse generation.’ They were convinced by his arguments, and they accepted what he said and were baptised. That very day about three thousand were added to their number.

Responsorial Psalm: Psalm 32(33):4-5,18-20,22

The Lord fills the earth with his love.

The word of the Lord is faithful 
  and all his works to be trusted.
The Lord loves justice and right,
  and fills the earth with his love.

The Lord fills the earth with his love.

The Lord looks on those who revere him,
  on those who hope in his love,
to rescue their souls from death,
  to keep them alive in famine.

The Lord fills the earth with his love.

Our soul is waiting for the Lord.
  The Lord is our help and our shield.
May your love be upon us, O Lord, 
  as we place all our hope in you.

The Lord fills the earth with his love.

Sequence

Christians, to the Paschal Victim
  offer sacrifice and praise.
The sheep are ransomed by the Lamb;
and Christ, the undefiled,
hath sinners to his Father reconciled.

Death with life contended:
  combat strangely ended!

Life’s own Champion, slain,
  yet lives to reign.

Tell us, Mary: 
  say what thou didst see 
  upon the way.

The tomb the Living did enclose;
I saw Christ’s glory as he rose!

The angels there attesting;
shroud with grave-clothes resting.

Christ, my hope, has risen:
he goes before you into Galilee.

That Christ is truly risen
  from the dead we know.
Victorious king, thy mercy show!

Gospel Acclamation

Alleluia, alleluia!
This day was made by the Lord: we rejoice and are glad.
Alleluia!
