First Reading: Acts of the Apostles 10: 34a, 37-43 ( Proclaimed by my niece)

Whover believes him him will have forgiveness of sins

Responsorial Psalm: Psalm 42 (Proclaimed by Younger)

Second Reading: 1 Corinthians 15: 51-57 (Proclaimed by my nephew)
O morte, dov'e` il tuo dardo? O Inferno dov'e` la tua vittoria?
O Death, where is your sting? O Hell where is your victory?

Gospel Acclamation: John 11: 25 ( Sung by Bear)
I am the resurrection and the life, says the Lord; whoever believes in me will not die forever.

I had planned this Gospel: Luke 24: 13-35
Il Signore e` veramente risorto
The Lord is risen indeed.

Father changed it to: Matthew 5: 3-12
Le Beatitudine.
