Have no anxiety at all, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, make your requests known to God. Then the peace of God that surpasses all understanding will guard your hearts and minds in Christ Jesus.
Phil 4:6-7

Mary of Easter

Rogier van der Weyden
Miraflores Altarpiece (detail)

Leader: Let us commend ourselves and all people to the love and protection of the Mother of God.
All: Holy Mother of God, Mary ever Virgin, intercede for us with the Lord our God.
Leader: God who is mighty has done great things for us.
All: And holy is God's name.
Leader: Let us pray:

In the brilliant light of Easter, 
Teach us, too, that nothing is impossible with God. 
All our struggles with self and others, 
All our disappointments and shames, 
All our failures and sinfulness 
Are as nothing in this healing, life-giving light. 
Accept, then, our all. 
May God look upon it, 
As once did the Mighty One upon our lowliness, 
So that we might be gifted with that blessedness 
Promised to all sons and daughters of the Resurrection.
