Here we have Easter prayer catholic. The Easter story is rich in powerful contrasts. The birth of Jesus, a seemingly illegitimate child, born in squalor, lived a life under threat from the very beginning. The prophet, teacher and Son of God was challenged, hunted and crucified. Such a dark and unfavoured beginning and short and harsh life and ministry. So when Easter day arrives, the tombstone rolls away for a risen Lord. On Easter day the stone rolls away for us all! The victims and downtrodden of this world are no longer trapped. The darkness of the tomb of fear, sin, torture, death, pain, and despair is filled with light. The contrast is truly astounding! The nature of life itself is changed and the rhythms of the universe transformed forever. A new heartbeat of grace flows in and around every aspect of a fallen world. Redemption is all-encompassing and the justice of heaven reigns. Amazing love! Amazing grace! Truth alive and death defeated forever! Below you will get Easter prayer catholic.
Easter prayer catholic
It is only right, with all the powers of our heart and mind, to praise You Father and Your Only-Begotten Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ.
Dear Father, by Your wondrous condescension of Loving-Kindness toward us, Your servants, You gave up Your Son.
Dear Jesus, You paid the debt of Adam for us to the Eternal Father by Your Blood poured forth in Loving-Kindness.
You cleared away the darkness of sin by Your magnificent and radiant Resurrection.
You broke the bonds of death and rose from the grave as a Conqueror.
You reconciled Heaven and earth. Our life had no hope of Eternal Happiness before You redeemed us.
Your Resurrection has washed away our sins, restored our innocence and brought us joy.
How inestimable is the tenderness of Your Love!
We pray You, Lord, to preserve Your servants in the peaceful enjoyment of this Easter happiness.
We ask this through Jesus Christ Our Lord, Who lives and reigns with God The Father, in the unity of the Holy Spirit, forever and ever.
Father: Christ is risen, Alleluia.
Family: He truly rises, Alleluia.
Father: The Lord rises from the grave, Alleluia.
Family: Who hung upon the Cross for us, Alleluia.
Father: Let us pray. O God,
through Thine only-begotten Son
Thou hast overcome death on this day
and hast opened unto us the gate of everlasting
pursue with Thine aid the good resolves Thou hast
and by Thy constant help make them lastingly
Through the same Jesus Christ, Thy Son,
who is living and reigning forever and ever?
Family: Alleluia, Alleluia.
Father: This is the day the Lord has made, Alleluia.

Family: And let us equally adore the Spirit, God forever
Father: Praise the Lord, for He is good,
Family: Sing praise to our Lord, for He is
it is fitting to praise Him.
Sing to the Lord with thanksgiving;
sing praise with the harp to our God,
Who covers the heavens with clouds,
who provides rain for the earth;
Who makes grain sprout on the mountains
and herbs for the service of men;
Who gives food to the cattle,
and to the young ravens when they cry to
In the strength of the steed, He delights not,
nor is He pleased with the fleshiness of men.
The Lord is pleased with those who fear Him,
and with those who hope for His kindness.
Father: Now when the Sabbath was past,
Mary Magdalen and Mary, the mother of Jesus,
and Salome bought sweet spices that coming they
might anoint Jesus.
And very early in the morning,
the first day of the week,
they came to the sepulcher,
the sun being now risen.
And they said to one another:
Who shall roll us back the stone from the door of
And looking they saw the stone rolled back,
for it was very great.
And entering into the sepulcher
they saw a young man sitting on the right side,
clothed with a white robe;
and they were astonished.
Who saith to them: Be not affrighted.
You seek Jesus of Nazareth who was crucified.
He has risen! He is not here!
Behold the place where they laid Him.
But go tell His disciples and Peter,
that He goes before you into Galilee
where you shall see him, as He told you. [Mark
[From The Story of the Redemption for Children, copyright

They placed Him in a tomb of stone,
Dead, all helpless, and alone.
But Easter morn, before the light,
He rose alive in glory bright!
