"Lord, open my lips,
and my mouth shall declare your praise."
Father of love,
by the outpouring of your grace
you increase the number of those who believe in you.
Watch over your chosen family.
Give undying life to all
who have been born again in baptism.
Grant this through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son,
who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit,
one God for ever and ever.
The Readings Acts 4:13-21; Psalm 188; Mark 16:9-15
Give us undying life.
There has been an outpouring of grace these holy days.
We ask that God continue to watch over us.
May our Lord, who gave us the grace for this wonderful journey,
continue to bless us in our every day life journey,
with the graces we need and desire along the way,
that we might be able to do wonderful things, in Jesus' name.
Anyone who believes me and is baptized will be saved.
But anyone who refuses to believe me will be condemned.
Everyone who believes me will be able to do wonderful things.
By using my name they will force out demons,
and they will speak new languages.
They will handle snakes and will drink poison and not be hurt.
They will also heal sick people by placing their hands on them.
Today's Daily Reflection
Intercessions for Easter Week
I feel your love for me
and for all who have been brought into your family.
I ask you to watch over me
and let me feel the love you shower on me.
I have been born again in baptism
and long for the undying life you offer me.
Help me to share this gift of faith
you have bestowed on me.
