Easter 4



I love you, Lord, my strength,
my rock, my fortress, my savior.
God, you are the rock where I take refuge;
my shield, my mighty help, my stronghold.

Lord, you are worthy of all praise,
when I call I am saved from my foes.
The snares of the grave entangled me;
the traps of death confronted me.

In my anguish I called to you, Lord;
I cried to you, God, for help.
From your temple you heard my voice;
my cry came to your ears.

They assailed me in the day of my misfortune,
but you, Lord, were my support.
You brought me forth into freedom,
you saved me because you loved me.

from Psalm 18


John wrote: Everyone who believes that Jesus is the Christ has been born of God, and everyone who loves the parent loves the child. By this we know that we love the children of God, when we love God and obey his commandments. For the love of God is this, that we obey his commandments. And his commandments are not burdensome, for whatever is born of God conquers the world. And this is the victory that conquers the world, our faith.

1 John 5,1-4


Thomas (who was called the Twin), one of the twelve, was not with them when Jesus came. So the other disciples told him, “We have seen the Lord.” But he said to them, “Unless I see the mark of the nails in his hands, and put my finger in the mark of the nails and my hand in his side, I will not believe.” A week later his disciples were again in the house, and Thomas was with them. Although the doors were shut, Jesus came and stood among them and said, “Peace be with you.” Then he said to Thomas, “Put your finger here and see my hands. Reach out your hand and put it in my side. Do not doubt but believe.” Thomas answered him, “My Lord and my God!” Jesus said to him, “Have you believed because you have seen me? Blessed are those who have not seen and yet have come to believe.”

John 20,24-29




O Risen Christ, your heart exults and your soul rejoices: comfort all who are living in sorrow.

Risen Lord, you come to transfigure our being: kindle in us the fire of your love.

Risen Lord, in you our resurrection has already begun on this earth: kindle in us the fire of your love.

Risen Lord, you come to fill our hearts with peace: kindle in us the fire of your love.

Risen Lord, your Spirit burns away sadness in us: kindle in us the fire of your love.

Risen Lord, you come to gather us in your Body, the Church: kindle in us the fire of your love.

Our Father


Risen Christ, when we have the simple desire to welcome your love, little by little a flame is kindled in the depths of our being. Fueled by the Holy Spirit, this flame of love may be quite faint at first. The amazing thing is that it keeps on burning. And when we realize that you love us, the trust of faith becomes our own song.
