VOCATION REFLECTION:
If you love me, you will hold to my words and my Father will love you and will come to you. Where does God come to you? (John 14:15-21)

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.
