Our Father, in this Easter season, we bless you for the beginning of the first Christian communities
communities, this birth of the Church where something new burst into the religious context…
religious context…
We bless you for this courageous beginning of the proclamation of the Risen Christ through persecution
persecutions, which calls us to be bold in proclaiming this Good News to the world today.
Through prayer, make us missionaries of your Good News: Christ is Risen! Evil is defeated
life and love will eventually create this new world where justice and peace will embrace, where the wolf will live
with the lamb, where relationships will be reconciled. Help us to work together for this through Jesus Christ and in the
of the Holy Spirit.
