Living God, we rejoice on this Easter day as we pray: 

Show us the path of life, O God.  

You commissioned Mary Magdalene to proclaim your resurrection: guide your Church’s work of evangelization.  

Show us the path of life, O God.  

You bid us to not be afraid: give courage to those who face difficult decisions.  

Show us the path of life, O God.  

You gladden our hearts: sustain the hope of those who await healing or the return of a loved one.  

Show us the path of life, O God.  

Our Father . . .  

May God fill us with Easter joy and lead us to eternal life, through Jesus, crucified and risen. Amen.
