Celebrating Easter Monday from Home

Celebrating Easter Monday from Home

In these worship resources, we continue our journey through Easter Week.

Peter said, “listen”.

Our ears can be deafened by all that goes on around us.

“Listen to what I have to say.”

(Background and more details about celebrating Eastertide from home)

Notas mihi fecisti vias vitae; adimplebis me laetitia cum vultu tuo: delectationes in dextera tua usque in finem.

You show me the path of life.
In your presence there is fullness of joy;
in your right hand are pleasures for evermore.

Psalm 15 (16):11

The Liturgy of the Word

Peter, standing with the Eleven, said,
“listen to what I say”
“listen to what I have to say”.

Our ears can be deafened by all that goes on around us.

Our hearts can become closed to those around us as we think of our own survival and staying safe.

Jesus said to them,
“Do not be afraid”.

We can hold others in our hearts and minds,
especially those most at risk,
and pray for leaders that they may have wisdom.

Confitemini Domino, quoniam bonus,
quoniam in saeculum misericordia ejus, alleluia.

Give thanks to the Lord, for God is good,
for God’s mercy endures for ever, alleluia.

Psalm 117 (118): 29

Music for reflection

1 The glory of the cross we sing,
the cross of Jesus Christ our Lord,
who died and rose to set us free,
our way from death to life secured.

2 As once God’s people rested safe,
protected by a lamb’s own blood,
so we acclaim the sacrifice
of Jesus Christ the Lamb of God.

3 As once the Chosen People passed
from pain to freedom through the sea,
so now baptismal water saves
the chosen, called to liberty.

4 At Passover, before he died,
Christ Jesus took the bread and wine:
‘This is my body, this my blood,
do this as my memorial sign.’

5 What once by Jesus was achieved
we celebrate with heart and soul,
recalling and effecting now
the saving work that makes us whole.

The Lord’s Prayer

Grant, we pray, Almighty God,
that we who celebrate with awe the Paschal feast
may be found worthy to attain to everlasting joys;
through Jesus Christ our Lord,
who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit,
one God, now and for ever. Amen.


In these strange times, we are called to trust
