Second Sunday of Easter
Sunday of Divine Mercy
Loving and merciful God,
may the Easter fires of this season set my heart aflame
and be the fire that starts other fires in this world.
Hold my heart close and sing your love to me
so my doubts don't fill my head and make me afraid.
May I recognize your face in those around me
and enter into their wounds.
Give me the gift of your compassion
to love them as you love me.
May the Lord bless us,
protect us from all evil
and bring us to everlasting life.
