    By your Resurrection  Alleluia, alleluia, alleluia!

    By your resurrection, O Lord, you become the first-born of the dead. Help us live the newness of your life.

    By your resurrection, you seal the new covenant.  Place in our hearts your own Spirit.

    By your resurrection, you killed hate among people.  Help us live the new law of your love.

    By your resurrection, you clothed yourself with immortality.  Help us put on the new man created in justice and holiness of truth.

    By your resurrection, you sit at the right hand of your Father.  Help us discover in the earthly realities the path to your heavenly kingdom.

    By your resurrection, you restore the universe.  Rebuild also your Church in your joy, because the life of your risen people is the witness of your resurrection.

    (Lucien Deiss, Biblical Prayers)

    Our New Bishop

    Let us pray for Bishop Alphonsus Cullinan that the Holy Spirit will give him the courage and strength to guide us.

    This is the Prayer composed by the Confirmation Classes in St. Oliver’s and read by PAIGE RYAN, who represented our Parish at the Ordination of Bishop Alphonsus.

     Dear Lord,

    Thank you for the life you have given me. As I step further into my future, give me the knowledge, courage, wisdom, right judgement, wonder and awe in God’s presence, reverence and understanding to live as you want me to. Remind me that on my path through life, you will journey with me and that you will never lead me into anything that you won’t lead me through. Thank you for sending the Holy Spirit at Confirmation to guide me. My thanks to you will be how I live my life.  Amen.

    Proclaiming your Resurrection  –  Jesus Christ, risen Lord, have mercy on us!

    Help us, O risen Lord, to proclaim your Resurrection, by bringing good news to the poor, and healing the hearts that are broken.

    Help us, O risen Lord, to proclaim your Resurrection, by feeding those who are hungry and clothing those who are naked.

    Help us, O risen Lord, to proclaim your Resurrection, by releasing the captives of injustice, and all those who are imprisoned by their sins.

    Help us, O risen Lord, to proclaim your Resurrection, by welcoming the strangers and visiting those in loneliness.

    Help us, O risen Lord, to proclaim your Resurrection, by bringing your peace to those who are in trouble, and your joy to those who are in sorrow.

    God our Father, who raised your Son from the dead, help us to understand, we beg you, that we will conquer our own death and rise with Jesus today when we live in brotherly love.

    We ask you this grace through Jesus Christ, who died for our sins and rose for our life.
