Easter Tuesday

Almighty God,
through the resurrection of your Son
you secured peace for our troubled conscience.
Always give us this peace,
that in the merit of your Son
we may finally come to the perfect peace of heaven;
through your Son, Jesus Christ our Lord,
who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit,
one God, now and forever.

Almighty God,
you bestowed on us the Paschal mysteries
as the token of the covenant of humanity’s redemption.
Give us the will to show forth in our lives
what we profess with our lips;
through your Son, Jesus Christ our Lord,
who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit,
one God, now and forever.

O almighty and eternal God,
through the resurrection of your Son
you sealed the covenant of man’s reconciliation.
As we rejoice in your covenant grace,
may we show forth in our lives
what we profess with our lips;
through your Son, Jesus Christ our Lord,
who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit,
one God, now and forever.
