The Second Sunday of Easter (Quasimodo Geniti)

The Divine Service, abbreviated for use in Christian homes:

Hymn: To God the Holy Spirit Let Us Pray, LSB 768

Gospel: John 20:19-31

Quasimodo Geniti (Easter 2)—The Sundays after the Resurrection of our Lord receive their names from the Introit for that particular Sunday. The Latin phrase Quasimodo geniti means “Like newborn infants” and comes from 1 Peter 2:1-3, “So put away all malice and all deceit and hypocrisy and envy and all slander. Like newborn infants, long for the pure spiritual milk, that by it you may grow up into salvation— if indeed you have tasted that the Lord is good.”

The full Introit is given below:

As newborn babes, Alleluia,
     desire the pure milk of the Word. Alleluia. Alleluia.
Sing aloud to God our strength;
     make a joyful shout to the God of Jacob.
You called in trouble, and I delivered you;
     I answered you in the secret place of thunder.
I am the Lord your God,
     who brought you out of the land of Egypt;
open your mouth wide, and I will fill it.
     With honey from the rock I would have satisfied you.
Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit.
     As it was in the beginning, is now, and will be forever. Amen.
As newborn babes, Alleluia,
     desire the pure milk of the Word. Alleluia. Alleluia.
