The Octave of Easter, during which, formerly, no servile work was done, was one continual Feast. Each day, the Neophytes attended Mass at a Lenten Station, at which they received Holy Communion. In the evening, they went to Saint John Lateran for the Office of Vespers.

On the first day of the week, the Station was at Saint Peter's, which contains the tomb of the temporal Head of the Church. We hear his voice in the Epistle. He proclaims to the world the Resurrection of Christ, of which he was a witness.

Likewise, the Gospel, after describing the appearance of the Risen Christ to the disciples of Emmaus, mentions His apparition to Peter on the very day of His Resurrection.

Receiving, as we do during these Easter festivities, one and the same Sacrament, the milk of our Souls, which were born to the Life of God and brought into the promised land by Baptism (Introit), let us all be one in heart and Soul (Postcommunion) in proclaiming together our Faith in the Risen Christ.

Every Parish Priest celebrates Mass for the people of his Parish.
