VOCATION REFLECTION: Those who love me will be true to my word. My father will love them and we will come to them. How will I respond to that love? Am I being called to priesthood or religious life? (John 14:23-29)
PRAYER FOR EASTER
God our Father,
by raising Christ your Son
you conquered the power of death
and opened for us
the way to eternal life.
Help us to live as new people
in pursuit of the Christian ideal.
Grant us wisdom
to know what we must do,
the will to want to do it,
the courage to undertake it,
the perseverance to continue to do it,
and the strength to complete it.
Lord, raise us up
and renew our lives
by the Spirit that is within us.
Grant this through Christ our risen Lord. Amen.
