On Friday the King endured pain and was crucified, and today victory has been achieved by his resurrection!
On Friday a lance pierced his side, and today in his compassion the waters of Baptism flow!
On Friday he was crowned with thorns, and today he has adorned his Church with a crown of splendor!
Today is the day of rejoicing in the resurrection.
