Prayer by Jonathan Montaldo


Reconcile today, Lord Jesus,

all things and me to your Father in the power of the Holy Spirit

whom you have sent to renew us in freedom and joy

through the mystery of your resurrection from the dead.

In the words of Saint Patrick, hear my Easter Prayer:

“Christ, as a light, illumine and guide me.

Christ, as a shield, overshadow and cover me.

Christ, be over me.

Christ, be under me.

Christ, be beside me, on my left hand and right.

Christ, this day, be within and without me.

Christ, the lowly and the meek.

Christ, the all-powerful.

Be in the heart of each to whom I speak.

In the mouth of each who speaks to me,

in all who draw near me,

or hear me,

or see me.”
