Maronite Year XLI

After New Sunday, the Maronites return to the liturgy of Easter for most of the Sundays of the Resurrection Season.

Third Sunday of the Resurrection
2 Timothy 2:8-13; Luke 24:13-35

On this day the Lord arose from the tomb;
death and the devil He conquered with life,
thus giving life to Adam's progeny.

This is our gospel: Christ rose from the dead;
because of Him we fear not chain nor bond,
but bear all for the salvation of all,
dying in Him that we may live in Him,
by passion preparing to reign with Him.
Was it not thus that Christ suffered for us?

Your servants praise You, for You conquered death.
Your saints glory; You sealed them with Your Name,
thus giving life to Adam's progeny.
