The Roman Rite prescribes the account of the disciples’ encounter of the Lord in the Breaking of the Bread at Emmaus for an Easter evening Mass. During the main academic year, we provide a 7pm Sunday Mass with a few exceptions. Yesterday was one of these. But perhaps your parish or another did offer such a Mass as part of its usual schedule. If so, did you use Luke 24:13-35, the longest Lectionary Gospel selection outside of Lent and Holy Week? We read it on the third Sunday of Easter, but only in cycle A (next year).
Does it make sense to read different Gospel passages at Vigil, in the morning, and later in the day? Is it just an attempt to align different Resurrection events with the right time of day?
Sit in the purple chair and redner judgment: Would you offer a Mass Easter evening? (Would anyone show up for it?) And which Easter Sunday Gospel is your favorite?
