|Prayer of the day||Jesus who helps the virtuous utter wisdom, You left the Father and came to the world; then You left the world and returned to Your Father. In Your Person, You brought all creation to Him, for You had assumed it all when You assumed our nature. To Him You returned power over all things, so that God might be all in all. Grant that we may ascend to Him with You and remain always at His right hand, where we shall praise You, Your Father and Your Spirit, the Holy Trinity.|

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".
