Jesus Christ is Risen

Jesus Christ is Risen

Our faith gives us hope for new sources of life


Death will be no more; mourning and crying and pain will be no more, for the first things have passed away. And the One who was seated on the throne said ‘See, I am making all things new’ (Rev 21: 1-5); Christ brings all together in the fullness of time. Creation will be transfigured after its collective pilgrimage unto its end. The Resurrection is a promise that all will be made into a new creation in the great beyond. May this Easter hope stir us to cultivate and cherish the kinship of creation.

We Pray

God of love, thank you for leading us from the darkness into the light. May we fan into flame the gifts we have received, mindful that you gave us no cowardly spirit, but one of power, love, and temperance. Give us wisdom and strength to be witnesses to the world as we take up the mission of healing and sanctifying the world so that “God may be all in all.” (1 Cor 15:28)


Taize Chant:

Jesus, remember me, when You come into Your kingdom.

Jesus, remember me, when You come into Your kingdom. (Repeat X2).


Christ Jesus, from the darkness of the tombs we experience today may you transform our world and help us towards the emergence of Resurrection. Imbue us with the Spirit of your Life, that we too may be resurrected in You, that the face of your creation may be renewed. Help us to always see you in the most vulnerable and marginalized among us, especially migrants and refugees. Protect them on their journeys just as you have protected us on ours. Teach us to stand together as One People under you, Our One Lord and migrant God. Amen
