Daily Easter Novena Prayer
Lord, I again rejoice in your Resurrection this Easter. Your victory over death and sin gives me the consoling message that, with you my Glorious Savior, I now have the strength to face my daily problems. Your Resurrection increases my desire to spend my eternal life with You and Mother Mary. May this Easter happiness inspire me to help brighten up the lives of family and friends struggling with their problems. It is for their and my own intentions that I am praying this novena. Glorified Jesus, please make me an instrument of Your peace and joy, Amen.
Joy is the key word that captures the true spirit of Easter. The one and only reason Catholics celebrate this specal Sunday centers on the fact that the greatest event of all times happened on this day – the Resurrection of Jesus Christ! This is the cornerstone of our Catholic Faith. If Christ had not risen from the dead, we would have no reason to rejoice or believe in anything. But because He did, our hearts, minds and churches echo with musical alleluias. Moods, happy or sad, can be infectious. We pray in our Easter Novena that we, and our loved ones, will no longer be hurting but experience the joy of the Risen Lord.
