Dear Friends,

May the Lord give you peace as we celebrate the Resurrection.   Let us pray together Matins of Easter Sunday from the Writings of Francis of Assisi:

Sing a new song to the Lord

for He has done wonderful things.

His right hand and holy arm

have sacrificed his beloved Son

The Lord has made His salvation known;

has revealed his justice in the sight of the nations.

On that day the Lord has sent his mercy,

and at night his song.4_2.jpg

This is the day the Lord has made;

let us rejoice and be glad in it.

Blessed is the one who comes in the name of the Lord.

the Lord is God, and has enlightened us.

Let the heavens rejoice and the earth exult

let the sea and all that is in it be moved

let the fields and all that is in them be glad.

Give the Lord, you families of nations,

Give the Lord glory and honor

Give the Lord the glory due His name.

May you continue to enjoy the Easter Season and I pray that you and all the members of your family will be blessed as you continue to remember the Risen Lord.

God bless you.
