Laetere Jerusalem!....Rejoice, Oh Jerusalem!
I'll let you in on a secret...Shh!, don't tell...
The first few notes of today's introit are identical to the first few notes of the first "A" word of the Paschal vigil.
Enjoy this first hidden hint of the magnificent joy of Easter!
We'll be talking more about the Easter vigil as that sacred premier service of the church year approaches. For now, revel in this clandestine glimpse of glory.
