Easter Reflection

Heavenly Father and God of mercy, I believe that Jesus is alive and has become the Lord of life. From the waters of Baptism you have raised me with him and renewed your gift of life within me. Increase in my mind and heart the risen life I share with Christ and help me to grow in your wisdom and grace.


Lord Jesus, you appeared to your apostles after the resurrection and filled their hearts with joy when you said to them "Peace be with you". May the peace of your presence abide with me and make each day you give me the most beautiful day of my life. Lord Jesus, you triumphed over death and destroyed the power of death in me, may I live only for you. Risen Lord, you brought confusion on the guards at your tomb but joy to your disciples, grant me the fullness of joy as I serve you in spirit and truth.


You promised to be with your disciples, Lord, to the end of the world, stay with me today and remain with me always. King of glory, center of my life, grant that when you come again, I may be one with you in glory. Lord, remember me as in my own way I minister to your people, may my life be holy and an example to your people. Lord Jesus, purify my heart with your truth and guide me in the way of holiness, so that I may always do what is pleasing in your sight. Amen.
