EASTER DAWN MASS

“On the first day of the week, at the first sign of dawn, they went to the tomb.... They found that the stone had been rolled away ...... two men in brilliant clothes suddenly appeared at their side. .... the two said to them, 'Why look among the dead for someone who is alive?

He is not here; he has risen.’”

(Luke 24: 1-6)
