Short Easter Prayer

BEAUTIFUL SHORT EASTER PRAYER BY ST GREGORY THE GREAT

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 towards 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!
Amen.
