Solemn Mass of the Easter Vigil and Blessing of the Easter Fire
The Easter Vigil liturgy is the most beautiful liturgy in the Roman Catholic Church. This dramatic Easter vigil liturgy marks the beginning of Easter: We are awaiting our master's return with our lamps full and burning, so that he will find us awake and seat us at his table (cf. Luke 12:35ff). The vigil is divided into four parts: Service of Light, Liturgy of the Word, Liturgy of Baptism/Renewal of Baptismal promises, and Liturgy of the Eucharist. All Catholics should try to attend this beautiful service.
