Catholic Easter Prayer~
Lord, the Resurrection of Your Son
Has given us new life and renewed hope.
Help us to live as new people
In pursuit of the Christian ideal.
Grant us wisdom to know what we must do,
The will to want to do it,
The courage to undertake it,
The perseverance to continue to do it,
And the strength to complete it.

“HAVING HEARD FROM THE ANGEL THE GLAD TIDINGS OF THE RESURRECTION AND THAT THE ANCIENT CURSE WAS DONE AWAY, THE WOMEN DISCIPLES OF THE LORD CRIED EXALTINGLY UNTO THE APOSTLES. DEATH IS NO MORE AND CHRIST OUR GOD IS RISEN, GRANTING THE WORLD GREAT MERCY.”
