Third Day of Easter
It is easy for us to become fearful about the future or to become resigned to what nearly everyone seems to assume will be a declining situation.
Help us to grow through fear to faith and through resignation to determination.
Help us to trust in the future to which the resurrection of Jesus points us; help us to be determined to work by the power of the resurrected Christ at transforming the present as much as we can.
Let our experience of and with the resurrected Christ drive away despair and fatalism.
Let our experience of and with the resurrected Christ push us toward hope and activism.
