Daily Prayers and Reflections for Each Day of the Easter Octave

Below I’ve started a short compilation of Easter resources & links, but this one deserves highlighting as a stand-alone entry.

Creighton University, which I have often linked for their Praying Advent and Praying Lent sites, also has an Easter Celebration page. They offer daily prayers and reflections for each day of the Easter Octave (the first week of Easter).

Check it out!

Here is one of the prayers from today’s entry:

The Father glorified Jesus and appointed him heir to all nations.
Let us praise him, saying:
Save us, Lord, through your victory.

Lord Christ, by your victory you broke the power of evil and destroyed sin and death,
– make us victorious over sin today.

You laid death low, and brought us new life,
– grant that we may walk today in this new life,

You gave life to the dead, and led mankind from death to life,
– give eternal life to all those we shall meet today.

You brought confusion on the guards at your tomb, but joy to your disciples,
– grant the fullness of joy to all who serve you.
