The Day of Resurrection

Today’s Reflection

O LORD OF LIFE, we thank you that the day of resurrection has dawned upon us. In its clear light, help us now to step from whatever sign of darkness there may be in ourselves into the true light and life, which is now yours—and which you long to share freely and fully with us.

Come to us – tune our heart and mind to give abundant thanks and praise to God – that on every Sunday we may solemnly celebrate the day of our Lord’s resurrection. Give us this day quiet peace and special gladness, that being protected day and night by your mercy, we may rejoice always in the gift of life given to us by our faithful Savior.

    There are not enough words to express the joy of this day. Let Thank You, Lord for saving us be acceptable to You, O Lord for on this day we remember especially what You did for us.

    May all of you share in the joy of this day and be blessed by the One who keeps us from falling, the Messiah, the Lord, Jesus, the Christ. Amen and Amen.
