Friday in the Octave of Easter
by the sacrifice of your son, Jesus,
you have helped me to forgiveness and reconciliation.
Help me to be more understanding,
to love as you have loved us --
utterly forgiving and forgetting of my many flaws.
Help me to live in this new way of loving
as I celebrate my new life in your Easter mystery.
May the Lord bless us,
protect us from all evil
and bring us to everlasting life.
