Grant, we pray, O Lord,
that we may always find delight in these paschal mysteries,
so that the renewal constantly at work within us
may be the cause of our unending joy.
Through Christ our Lord.
Prayer over the Offerings for the 4th Sunday of Easter
Theprayer above reminds that the end of our journey in faith, of our growth in holiness, is joy. The journey may be challenging and tough, but God steers us towards everything that is honest, true and life-giving.
Let us rejoice and be glad. He is risen that we too may rise in him.
