Happy Easter!

Sts. Peter and Paul Church, Honolulu

I hope you and your family have a very blessed Easter!

Joint Prayer for the Easter Virtues

O Lord,
the resurrection of your Son
has given us new life and renewed hope.
Help us to live as new people
in pursuit of the Christian ideal.
Grant us the wisdom to know what we must do,
the will to want to do it,
the courage to undertake it,
the perseverance to continue to do it,
and the strength to complete it.

Amen.
