May they fearlessly suffer anything as they teach and proclaim You as the One who was sent by the heavenly Father to make all become chosen children of God. Help us to grasp the depth of Your assertion, "I am the way, and the truth, and the life; no one comes to the Father, but by me", in response to the question of our father Mar Toma Sliha.|

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".
