It is truly meet and just, right and for our salvation, at all times to praise Thee, O Lord, but more gloriously especially this day when Christ our Pasch was sacrificed. For He is the true Lamb Who took away the sins of the world: Who by dying destroyed our death, and by rising again hath restored us to life.

(“Preface for Easter,” The Roman Catholic Daily Missal: 1962 [Kansas City, MO: Angelus Press, 2004], 873)
