You are the Author of Life,
Who died and now lives forevermore.

May we who work and pray
That all life may be protected

From Your victory over death,
For you are Lord forever and ever.

Amen.

Lord Jesus Christ, my heart
reaches out in gratitude.
You have raised me up
from the darkness.

You have taken me from night
into the light of day.

Lord Jesus, even in my stubborn
pride, and lazy ways;
You continued to find me.

My loving Jesus,
out of the grateful love I bear You,
and to make reparation for my unfaithfulness to grace,
I give You my heart,
and I consecrate myself wholly to You;
and with Your help
I purpose never to sin again.

Amen.

Enraptured by the splendor of your heavenly beauty,
and impelled by the anxieties of the world,
we cast ourselves into your arms,
O Immaculate Mother of Jesus and our Mother, Mary,
confident of finding in your most loving heart
appeasement of our ardent desires,
and a safe harbor from the tempests
which beset us on every side.

Receive, O most sweet Mother,
our humble prayers,
and above all obtain for us that,
one day, happy with you,
we may repeat before your throne that hymn
which today is sung on earth around your altars:
You are all-beautiful, O Mary!
You are the glory,
you are the joy,
you are the honor of our people!

Amen.

Heavenly Father and God of mercy,
we no longer look for Jesus among the dead,
for he is alive and has become the Lord of life.
From the waters of death
you raise us with him
and renew your gift of life within us.
Increase in our minds and hearts
the risen life we share with Christ,
and help us to grow as your people
