Sound the trumpet of salvation!

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! - Exsultet

This evening Catholics around the world sang the Exsultet, a hymn of light that celebrates our Christ's resurrection for the dead. This is my favorite part of the whole church year. My Triduum liturgies have gone really well. My choir has been really amazing, and I'm learning to really appreciate every last one of them - even the annoying ones. There are always bad days working in the church world, especially the RC, but on evenings like tonight it is most rewarding!

Christ is Risen!
