On Holy Saturday evening we have a Vigil service which begins with the lighting of the new fire and then the blessing of the Paschal candle. This beautiful ceremony is followed by the lovely chant, Exsultet, the readings from Scripture with their sung responsories, and then the glorious Mass of the Resurrection. All this input gives one a new appreciation of our gift of Faith and plenty of food for meditation for a long time.
And so it is Easter!!! Alleluia
We nuns of Corpus Christi Monastery pray that each and every one of our family, friends and benefactors will receive many graces and blessings in this beautiful Paschal Season.
