Christ is Arisen! Alleluia!
As we enter the season of Easter, I thought I would end this series with pictures from two of the final three locations commemorated in the Franciscan procession: the Aedicule of the Holy Sepulchre and the Chapel of the Apparition of the Risen Christ to Mary Magdalene.
Aedicule of the Holy Sepulchre

Chapel of the Apparition of the Risen Christ to Mary Magdalene
O God, who on this day, through your Only Begotten Son, have conquered death and unlocked for us the path to eternity, grant, we pray, that we who keep the solemnity of the Lord’s Resurrection may, through the renewal brought by your Spirit, rise up in the light of life.
