Easter Morning

God our Father, creator of all,
today is the day of Easter joy.
This is the morning on which the Lord
appeared to men
who had begun to lose hope
and opened their eyes to what the scriptures foretold:
that first he must die, and then he would rise
and ascend into his Father’s glorious presence.
May the risen Lord
breathe on our minds and open our eyes
that we may know him in the breaking of the bread,
and follow him in his risen life.
Grant this through Christ our Lord.

  1. Happy Easter and Easter Season to you both, Terry and Pia, and thank you! Yes, that was our opening prayer at Easter morning Mass here, Terry! Re going well, Pia, I’m counting my blessings today. Hubby and son both (willingly) said the Divine Mercy Chaplet with me this evening for the novena. Would love to be able to complete the whole rest of the novena as a family and would really consider that a little miracle what with everybody’s erratic schedules! Been thinking about you both!
