Prayer Bead Devotion: Resurrection

Alleluia!  Alleluia!  Christ is Risen! 

We have come through the darkness and devastation of Good Friday, through the uncertainty of Holy Saturday, and are met with the glorious news of Christ’s resurrection on Easter!  We give thanks for the Lord our God, who loves us so much that he took on our sins, died for us, and then offers us the gift of eternal life through his resurrection.  There is much to celebrate, indeed!

I pray Easter blessings on you and your family today, and throughout this celebratory season of Easter!

Cross: In the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit, Amen.
