Topic - Jesus Is Risen: Love Triumphed Over Death
Speaker: Fr. Edgar Benedi-an, OSM
The Lord is truly risen; to him be glory and power for all ages of eternity. Alleluia.
Heavenly Father, we give you thanks for giving us Jesus to save us from sin and death. We praise your Holy Name for your extraordinary love and sacrifice. We are sinners who need your mercy and forgiveness. Let your compassionate mercy be ours as we commit ourselves to live according to your Holy Will.

Almighty God, the resurrection of your Son has given us new life and renewed hope. Help us to live as a new people and give us the wisdom to know what you want us to do, the desire to do it, the courage that we need to do it the perseverance and strength to get it done. May we continue to be grateful for your love and sacrifice and salvation. Help us to walk in the Spirit of love, strengthen our hope and increase our faith in you, for you God, live and reign forever and ever. Amen.

Fr. Leo Hambur, OSM
