The Gospel Proclaimed in Greek at Pope’s Easter Mass

If you watched Pope Francis’ Easter Mass at St Peter’s Basilica yesterday, then you may have noticed the very moving gospel of the Resurrection sung in Greek. The deacon, Gianpiero Vaccaro, from the Italo-Albanian Eparchy of Lungro (Calabria, Italy) is also a student of the Greek College in Rome.

The gospel at yesterday's papal Mass: it’s extraordinarily lovely! I can’t stop listening to it! I had to get out the Greek text to follow along.What a great voice this deacon has! And he can sing quarter tones!Many thanks to the Rev. Mr. (Subdeacon) Arvin Gallanosa, M.D., for the clean copy.
