April 16 ~ The Resurrection of the Lord

+ May the Church share in the concrete power of the Resurrection in the areas of our lives where we need it most.  Jesus, Risen Lord, we pray.

+That the newly baptized and confirmed will find in the Church the meaning and happiness for which their hearts long.  Jesus, Risen Lord, we pray.

+ In this sacred season, may the song of the Resurrection find its place in our hearts.  Jesus, Risen Lord, we pray.

+ May the human family find the true peace that flows from the union of justice and mercy.  Jesus, Risen Lord, we pray.

+ That the Easter Alleluia will strengthen and direct our president, members of Congress and all civil leaders.  Jesus, Risen Lord, we pray.

+ We ask that you leaven our community with the Resurrection life so that we might go out into the world to help heal the world and transform it with your love.  Jesus, Risen Lord, we pray.

+ For all those who are sick and those who have died.  Jesus, Risen Lord, we pray.

+ For the prayers we hold in the silence of our hearts.  Jesus, Risen Lord, we pray.
