"Lumen Christi"

"Exultet iam angelica turba caelorum:
exultent divina mysteria:
et pro tanti Regis victoria tuba insonet salutaris...."

("Rejoice, heavenly powers! Sing, choirs of angels!
Exult, all creation around God's throne!
Jesus Christ, our King, is risen!
Sound the trumpet of salvation!")

-- Easter Proclamation (Exultet)

* * *

May every joy and gift which comes from the Light which burst forth on this night to destroy the darkness be yours, and with those you love, tonight, in the days to come and forever.

Happy Easter to all! Buona Pasqua a tutti!
