Opening Liturgy for Easter Vigil
APRIL 3 – EASTER VIGIL
As we await the coming dawn, we remember our history. We listen to the stories of our ancestors, for Adam and Eve whom God created in the divine image, to Abraham and Sarah, whom God trusted to people the earth, to Moses and the thousands of faithful in Egypt, whom God rescued from captivity, to David, God’s chosen one, to the prophets who spoke God’s word to Jesus Christ, God’s only Son.
We listen to the stories of God’s covenant with us, a covenant that God would never let break, a covenant renewed forever in the person of the one who gave His life for us.
As we listen to God’s word, let us be aware that these are our forebears, this is our story.
