Second Reading: Lk. 24:1-27

The Resurrection
 1(A) But on the first day of the week, at early dawn, they went to the tomb,(B) taking the spices they had prepared. 2And they found(C) the stone rolled away from the tomb, 3but when they went in they did not find the body of the Lord Jesus. 4While they were perplexed about this, behold,(D) two(E) men stood by them in dazzling apparel. 5And as they were(F) frightened and bowed their faces to the ground, the men said to them, "Why do you seek the living among the dead? 6He is not here, but has risen. Remember how he told you,(G) while he was still in Galilee, 7(H) that the Son of Man(I) must be delivered into the hands of sinful men and(J) be crucified and on(K) the third day rise." 8And(L) they remembered his words, 9and returning from the tomb they(M) told all these things to the eleven and to all the rest. 10Now it was(N) Mary Magdalene and(O) Joanna and Mary the mother of James and the other women with them who told these things to the apostles, 11but these words seemed to them an idle tale, and(P) they did not believe them. 12But(Q) Peter rose and ran to the tomb; stooping and looking in, he saw(R) the linen cloths by themselves; and he went home marveling at what had happened.
On the Road to Emmaus
 13That very day(S) two of them were going to a village named Emmaus, about seven miles[a] from Jerusalem, 14and they were talking with each other about all these things that had happened. 15While they were talking and discussing together, Jesus himself drew near and went with them. 16(T) But their eyes were kept from recognizing him. 17And he said to them, "What is this conversation that you are holding with each other as you walk?" And they stood still, looking sad. 18Then one of them, named Cleopas, answered him, "Are you the only visitor to Jerusalem who does not know the things that have happened there in these days?" 19And he said to them, "What things?" And they said to him, "Concerning Jesus of Nazareth, a man who was(U) a prophet(V) mighty in deed and word before God and all the people, 20and(W) how our chief priests and(X) rulers delivered him up to be condemned to death, and crucified him. 21But we had hoped that he was(Y) the one to redeem Israel. Yes, and besides all this, it is now(Z) the third day since these things happened. 22Moreover, some women of our company amazed us.(AA) They were at the tomb early in the morning, 23and(AB) when they did not find his body, they came back saying that(AC) they had even seen a vision of angels, who said that he was alive. 24(AD) Some of those who were with us went to the tomb and found it just as the women had said, but him they did not see." 25And he said to them, "O foolish ones, and slow of heart to believe all that the prophets have spoken! 26(AE) Was it not necessary that(AF) the Christ should suffer these things and enter into(AG) his glory?" 27And(AH) beginning with(AI) Moses and(AJ) all the Prophets, he interpreted to them in all the Scriptures the things concerning himself.
