Our Morning Offering – 15 April
Holy Saturday Prayer
to Be Joined with Christ in Death
O Lord, Your sorrowing Mother stood by Your Cross;
help us in our sorrows to share Your sufferings.
Like the seed buried in the ground,
You have produced the harvest of eternal life for us;
make us always dead to sin and alive to God.
Shepherd of all, in death You remained hidden from the world;
teach us to love our hidden spiritual life with You and the Father.
In Your role as the new Adam,
You went down among the dead
to release all the just there since the beginning;
grant that all who are dead in sin may hear Your voice
and rise to new life.
Son of the living God,
You have allowed us through baptism to be buried with You;
grant that we may also rise with You in baptism
and walk in newness of life. Amen

Prayer is what the world needs combined with the example of our lives which testify to the Light of Christ.

"For the Saints are sent to us by God
as so many sermons.
We do not use them, it is they who move us
and lead us, to where we had not expected to go.”
