Monday, April 8th



Happy Easter! AlleluiaLent is over, and it is now time to celebrate the great joy of the Easter Season. Jesus destroyed sin by destroying the consequences of sin which is death. Death loses in the Resurrection! Jesus’ Resurrection takes away the effects of all sin. This is the meaning of Easter! Easter means that nothing can keep us from the joy that God wants to give us.   


Help me to experience the joy that only Your Resurrection can bring

Help me to let you transform every cross and burden in my life into joy


may Your joy fill my life and be my strength in all things

Through Christ our Lord,
