Dear Jesus, On the third day following Your total gift of Yourself on the Cross, You stepped out of the empty grave with the fire of victory in Your heart and an unconquerable joy in Your soul.
You won! O Lord, You became one of us to save us, to deliver us from death, and to give us real and lasting life. You are with us now. Help us to encounter You and Your love for us. Help us to bring Your mercy to others, to become instruments of Your Risen life and peace to all, that all may come to know You as Lord and Savior, as Shepherd and Friend. Amen.
