Today is Easter, a time for the celebration of the Resurrection of Jesus Christ, the Word made Flesh, the Blessed Redeemer, and Savior of the World. As is fitting for this holy day, I'm spending the day with my family. I wish everyone a very Blessed Easter and remember He is Risen!
A Gnostic Easter Prayer
By John J. DiGilio
Most holy and most high.
Divine Word incarnate in human flesh,
You endured a life of hardship,
And yet lived a life of love.
Grant that we might learn,
From your humble example.
Emanation of the Divine Unknowable,
You suffered most grievously.
You were scourged willingly,
That we might know the truth
Of our own existence and suffering.
You bore witness to Divine promise,
That very promise that is our own.
Your blood shed and your body broken,
That our birthright would be illuminated.
We now bear witness to your grace,
And are moved by your selflessness.
Our eyes are opened by your sacrifice.
In you, we see the Divine Light,
The flame that burns within us all.
We glorify your holy name.
We venerate your most holy passion.
We give you thanks and praise.
Miserere nobis. Alleluia! Amen
