|Prayer of the day||Jesus who grant us tranquillity and peace, You have broken the gates of Sheol, trampled down death, despoiled its kingdom and rose up as the First-born from the dead. On this day of Your Resurrection, You have brought about our salvation. May we be loosed from the darkness of our ignorance and be freed from the bonds of our sins, that we may rise from the tomb of dead works and walk in newness of life. We praise You always, O Lord of all, especially when we celebrate and partake of Your pure and life-creating Mysteries.|

Mystery of Resurrection - Jesus' victory over the world, sin and death - He fills us with the glory of His Resurrection, Peace, Satisfaction and Joy - Life in Jesus is one of peace and tranquillity.
Risen Jesus = Peace - Resurrection celebration in the Syro-Malabar Church is entitled "Peace Celebration" - Mesihites (Christians) are to be peace-makers and peace-lovers - Let us greet each other in this season saying: "Let the Risen Lord be with you" and respond "Let Resurrection, Life and Renewal be with you".
