EASTER Mass of the Resurrection of the Lord

+ In this Jubilee Year of Mercy, may the Church manifest in concrete ways the truth of Christ's triumph over death.  Christ, radiant light shining in our darkness, we pray.

+ For the world: that oppression, prejudice, slavery, hatred and injustice of every sort may be put to death through the Resurrection of Jesus Christ.    Christ, radiant light shining in our darkness, 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 and transform it with your love.  Christ, radiant light shining in our darkness, we pray.

+ Just as were Jesus disciples, we are all witnesses to what you are doing in the world today.  Help us all to be active participants in your work on earth - today - now, in this present moment.  Christ, radiant light shining in our darkness, we pray.

+ In thanksgiving and gratitude, we ask your blessings on all those present today.  Christ, radiant light shining in our darkness, we pray.

+ For the grace this week to face the trials and difficulties of life with the confidence and certainty that come from the Resurrection.  Christ, radiant light shining in our darkness, we pray

+ For all those who are sick and those who have died.  Christ, radiant light shining in our darkness, we pray.

+ For the prayers we hold in the silence of our hearts.  Christ, radiant light shining in our darkness, we pray.
