May Your Churches be truly apostolic, curing the spiritual illness of mankind, raising people from the death of sin, healing the leprosy of divisions, casting out the demons of false, vicious and evil attempts and showing the path of true freedom: freedom from lust and greed, freedom from hatred and all forms of oppression, freedom from self-centredness and pride.|

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".
