Sixteenth Day of Easter
Thank you, O God, for the hope that is ours because of the resurrection of Jesus.
Thank you for the hope of our own future resurrection and of everlasting life.
Thank you also for the hope with which this day is filled, hope that springs from the fact that we have been raised with Christ and that we are walking in newness of life.
Help us to live in that hope in every situation that we encounter and with every person with whom we interact today.
