Christ is Risen! He is Risen indeed!
This is the clarion call of the Church throughout the centuries, as we celebrate again the great mystery of our Redemption in the Paschal Mystery of the suffering, death and Resurrection of Jesus. God, in Christ, has triumphed over the power of sin and death, and brought us into the kingdom of His Son.
Our prayer is that all of you in the Abbey family may know the power of that grace in your lives this Easter.
With many blessings,
The monks of Saint Louis Abbey
Loving and gracious God,
In this season of celebration,
We thank you for the gift of your Son,
Whose Passion, Death and Resurrection
Have freed us from from the snares of death
And brought us into the Kingdom
Which you have prepared for us from the foundation of the world.
As we renew our faith in the Risen Lord this Easter
Help us to strive ever more fully
To live as He taught us
To love one another with His selfless love
And to witness to the power of the Spirit at work in the world,
Now and every day of our lives.
