EASTER FRIDAY, APRIL 25, DURING THE OCTAVE OF EASTER

REFLECTION:  Many of those who heard the word come to believe, alleluia!  (Acts 4:4)

Astounded, reassured, forgiven, fed by the love of their risen Lord, the disheartened band of Apostles is transformed into courageous preachers who will take the good news of Christ from one end of the world to the other. Magnificat

My heart is ready, O God, my heart is ready.  Awake, my soul, awake, lyre and harp, I will awake the dawn.

I will thank you, Lord, among the peoples, among the nations I will praise you for your love reaches to the heavens and your truth to the skies.

O God, arise above the heavens; may your glory shine on earth!  Psalm 57

Glory to the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, as it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be. Amen
