And Resurrection Comes


God of gentle connection

through Your Spirit's light

Bless me as you blessed those women

witnesses to the Resurrection of Your Son

with a faith that sees beyond the endings

with a hope that breathes beyond the wondering

with a love that proclaims anew

"Alleluia! He is risen!

He is risen indeed. Alleluia!"


(Sr Perpetua McNulty)
