  • Fifth Sunday of Easter 435

    Todays Gospel very simply lays out for us the way to salvation. The disciples are troubled, perhaps because they sense Jesus impending departure. Naturally they ask him the central question that most Christians eventually ask: Master, we do not know where you are going; how can we know the way? Jesus response is quite simple. If we focus on knowing and believing in him, then we will find the way. That way leads to the place prepared for us in his Fathers house. It all sounds so easy. Yet each of us knows that sin is the only easy way. We have a choice. Either we take the easy way, or we choose to take up the challenge to follow in the Lords footsteps. The wonderful thing is that we never do this alone. We have our community of faith to support us as we all travel the journey that we hope will lead us all to the Fathers house.

    Entrance Antiphon Cf. Ps 98 (97):12O sing a new song to the Lord, for he has worked wonders; in the sight of the nations he has shown his deliverance, alleluia.

    Order of Mass, p. 19.

    The Gloria in excelsis (Glory to God in the highest) is said.

    CollectAlmighty ever-living God, constantly accomplish the Paschal Mystery within us, that those you were pleased to make new in Holy Baptism may, under your protective care, bear much fruit and come to the joys of life eternal. Through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son, who lives and reigns with you in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.

    Excerpt from the Sunday readings.

    Excerpt from the Order of Mass section.

    Introductory Rites 19

    TheIntroductoryRitesLift up your hearts! How do we come to the holy moment when we join with the whole of creation to sing to God what can be sung to God alone: Holy, holy, holy?

    First, Christ gathers us together. We come from our homes and assemble in this holy place. We greet one another as we would greet Christ, bless ourselves with holy water, and take our places. A procession forms. We sing, our many voices raised as the one, mighty voice of the Body of Christ. We sign ourselves with the cross. Depending on the season of the year, we may sing the song of the angels (Glory to God), bless water and be sprinkled with it, or cry out Lord, have mercy. The priest calls us to pray, and after a moment of silence, says words that gather all our praise and petitions into one prayer.

    Entrance Chant

    All stAnd.

    When the people are gathered, the Priest approaches the altar with the ministers while the Entrance Chant is sung.

    See the Entrance Antiphon of todays Mass. To find todays Mass, use the calendar table on pages 813.


    When the Entrance Chant is concluded, the Priest and the faithful, standing, sign themselves with the Sign of the Cross, while the Priest, facing the people, says:

    In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit.
