    A quick google search did not help me with the Latin above. I could figure out everything but the phrase regarding Mary. Not familiar with this tradition and curious as to what it might mean and thinking it referred to the mother of Jesus, I kept digging. Found an explanation buried in a pdf on an Ambrosian Chant In Dolci Jubilo, p. 15.

    It is actually referring to Mary Magdalene who was the first to see the resurrected Lord. He then sent her to the disciples to tell them what He said to her and she became the first witness of the resurrection.

    Here is a translation of the Antiphon that it is a part of:

    Alleluia. The Lord has risen, alleluia:
    and has been seen by Simon, alleluia, alleluia.
    Alleluia. The stone has been moved, alleluia:
    By the victim of the tomb, alleluia, alleluia.
    Alleluia. Who do you seek, woman? alleluia:
    the living among the dead? alleluia, alleluia.
    Alleluia. Do not weep, Mary, alleluia:
    the Lord has risen, alleluia, alleluia:

    Alleluia. The Lord is known, alleluia:
    in the breaking of bread, alleluia, alleluia.

    I got an education today. Thank you.

    Well, I am a day late. We did have a very blessed Easter. My daughter was home for the weekend.

    We had a meaningful drama at a Sonrise service followed by a brunch. Then the main worship celebration. Had a late lunch and took a nap.

    Christ is risen!
