Mary, Virgin and Mother,
shows us what love is and whence it draws its origin
and its constantly renewed power.
To her we entrust the Church and her mission in the service of love:

Blessed are You, eternal God,
King of creation:
Bless my family who asks for your grace.
Let your Spirit guide our words and deeds,
so that our light may shine before all
and lead all who know us to give You praise.

Where will I go?
What road do I follow?
How long is this journey?
Will You be there when I arrive?

How long will it take me?
Hold my hand, and don’t let go.
How can I see if darkness comes?
Be my eyes and guide me.

O God, for Whose honor the glorious bishop Stanislaus
fell under the swords of the wicked;
grant, we beseech You,
that all who implore his aid,
may obtain an answer to their prayers.
Through our Lord Jesus Christ, Your Son,
Who lives and reigns with You
in the unity of the Holy Spirit,
world without end.

Amen.

Lord, I believe, help my unbelief.
The first Christians recognized the signs and wonders of their day.
Help me to see your guiding hand each day.
Reveal your risen presence to me as you come to me in Holy Communion.
Let my heart burn with love for you as you speak to me in the scriptures.
Keep alive in me the joy of this season

Pour Your grace into our hearts, O Lord;
that we who have known the incarnation
of Your Son Jesus Christ,
announced by an angel
to the Virgin Mary,
may by his cross and passion
be brought unto the glory
of His resurrection;
who lives and reigns with You,
in the unity of the Holy Spirit,
one God, now and for ever..

Amen

Eternal God, in whom mercy is endless
and the treasury of compassion - inexhaustible,
look kindly upon us
and increase Your mercy in us,
that in difficult moments
we might not despair
nor become despondent,
but with great confidence
submit ourselves to Your holy will,
which is Love and Mercy itself.

Amen.

Jesus, Lord, don't let the fear of death overpower us.
And don't let the loss of our loved ones
cause us to doubt Your power to “Easter” everybody.
Remind us, Lord,
that You have the last words over death.
You are risen!
You are not "among the dead."
Neither are we.
We shall live forever in Your triumphant love.

Amen.

The cross of death has become the Tree of Life, and we rejoice.
God has sent forth the Spirit,
And the world quickens to life anew.
Jesus is risen!
Teach us no more to fear the sword of division and death;
Teach us to welcome Jesus, the sign of contradiction,
And to lay bare the thoughts of our hearts
To the healing light of Easter.

April 5, 2018

We sing our Alleluias today, for Jesus is risen.
Our souls proclaim the greatness of God,
Our spirits rejoice in our Risen Savior.
Mary, may your song be sung in our lives
At every moment of this day so that God's power,
Which can do far more than we can ask or imagine,
May continue to call life from death and light from darkness,
