Resurrection Prayer


Our sisters from the Province of Ireland posted this prayer the other day on social media.  As I prayed and reflected with it these days, I thought it would be good to share it on our blog.  May we always seek the light of the resurrection and choose life.

Resurrection Prayer by Kathy Galloway

Christ our life, you are alive

in the beauty of the earth

in the rhythm of the seasons

in the mystery of time and space


Christ our life, you are alive

in the creative possibility

of the dullest conversation

of the dreariest task

the most threatening event


Christ our life, you are alive

to offer re-creation

to every unhealed hurt

to every deadened place

to every damaged heart


You set before us a great choice.

Therefore we choose life.

The dance of resurrection soars and surges through the whole creation.

It sets gifts of bread and wine upon our table

This is grace, dying we live.

So let us live.
