At Easter/ we pray for the healing of the Holy Land wherever there is poverty,/ religious hatred,/ bitterness and violence./ We pray to the Lord.
We pray for the Christ of Easter to enlighten minds lost in ignorance,/ power abuse,/ lies and pride./ We pray as well for those throughout the world who are baptized at Easter./ We pray to the Lord.
We ask that very soon/ the Churches of the East and West would celebrate Easter together,/ giving the world the witness of unity and reconciliation./ We pray to the Lord.
We pray for the Easter morning earthquake/ to shake up the Church to become the true sign of salvation for all./ We pray to the Lord.
We pray for Pope Francis as at Easter/ as he will speak a word of peace and hope to the world in its fragmentation and pain./ We pray to the Lord.
We pray for those who live without joy at Easter:/ refugees,/ the homeless poor,/ those who are active in their addictions/ or who are suffering terrible losses./ We pray to the Lord.
We pray for those who have died since last Easter/ mindful of loved ones and anyone who is left un-mourned./ We pray to the Lord.
