We greet you in the name of our Lord Christ Jesus.

May the light of the Holy Spirit of our Lord, the Lord of love, mercy, and compassion shine upon all of us and may He grant us the knowledge, patience and wisdom to understand the richness of His teachings and missions which are intended to nurture our hearts and our lives.


 

“On the first day of the week, Mary of Magdala came to the tomb early in the morning,

while it was still dark, and saw the stone removed from the tomb.

So she ran and went to Simon Peter and to the other disciple whom Jesus loved, and told them,

“They have taken the Lord from the tomb, and we don’t know where they put him.”

So Peter and the other disciple went out and came to the tomb.

They both ran, but the other disciple ran faster than Peter and arrived at the tomb first;

he bent down and saw the burial cloths there, but did not go in.

When Simon Peter arrived after him, he went into the tomb and saw the burial cloths there,

and the cloth that had covered his head, not with the burial cloths but rolled up in a separate place.

Then the other disciple also went in, the one who had arrived at the tomb first,

and he saw and believed.

For they did not yet understand the Scripture that he had to rise from the dead.” (John 20:1-9)

 

He is Risen

 Christ is Risen! Alleluia!

The wonders our Lord has done,

Christ is risen! Alleluia!

The immense love God has for ev'ryone.

 

He chose to come into our world,

To walk our human tempestuous journey,

Lay down His life for all, obediently,

And redeem the world, wholeheartedly

 

Christ is risen! Alleluia!

He is risen to bring us the newness of life,

He is risen to cleanse out troubled and sinful hearts,

And shine upon us His Holy light.

 

He is risen to destroy death,

True peace, true hope and true joy restored,

And so was faith in the lost souls,

And like Mary: "I have seen the Lord!"

 

He is your Lord, my Lord and the Lord of all others,

He is risen and ignite our hearts with burning desire,

To seek Him, He is risen and He is alive,

And He is the God of light,

His love is in the air, everywhere, for all, you and I,

Inhale to embrace His love,

Christ is risen! Alleluia!

Christ is alive! Alleluia!
