Catholic Prayer: Easter Tuesday Prayers

Description:

Keep your family's focus on the Easter season by reading this passage from the Gospel of Luke concerning the Resurrected Christ on Easter Tuesday.

Prayer:

Father: Christ is risen, Alleluia.
Family: He is truly risen, Alleluia.
Father: Let us pray. O God, Thou dost increase Thy Church with an offspring ever renewed; enable Thy servants to reflect in daily living the power of the mystery they have experienced through faith. Through Christ our Lord.
Family: Alleluia, Alleluia.
Father: Now while they were speaking these things Jesus stood in their midst and said to them: Peace be to you. It is I, fear not. But they, being troubled and frightened, supposed that they saw a spirit. And He said to them: Why are you troubled and why do thoughts arise in your hearts? See My hands and feet, that it is I myself. Handle and see, for a spirit hath not flesh and bones as you see Me to have. And when He had said this He showed them His hands and feet. But while they yet believed not and wondered for joy, He said: Have you here anything to eat? And they offered Him a piece of a broiled fish and a honey-comb. And when He had eaten before them, taking the remains, He gave to them. (Luke 24:36-43)
