Let us remember…that we are in the holy presence of God.
+ In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit, Amen.
Your Son, Jesus Christ, overcame death and opened for us the gate of everlasting life,
grant that we who celebrate with joy the day of the Lord’s resurrection
may also be raised from death to heavenly glory by your life-giving Spirit.
We pray in Jesus’ name,
Saint John Baptist de La Salle – Pray for us.
Live, Jesus, in our hearts – Forever!
