Christ is Risen

In our mad world. Christ is Risen! In the face of physical pain…Christ is Risen! When loved ones fall ill or die…Christ is Risen! When 300 girls are kidnapped…Christ is Risen! When a shooter comes…Christ is Risen! When the car won’t start…Christ is Risen!!! When I’m frightened…Christ is Risen! When I’m discouraged…Christ is Risen! When I have stumbled and am ashamed…repent, for Christ is Risen!

Arise, my soul, arise! Christ is risen from the dead, trampling down death by death, and to those in the tomb restoring life. Financial trouble? Christ is Risen! Spouse betrays you? Christ is risen! Friends abandon you? Christ is Risen! Who is the King of Glory? The Lord of Hosts, He is the King of Glory! Who is the King of Glory? The Lord, Strong and Mighty! Who is this King of Glory? His name is Jesus, the Christ, Risen from the dead!

Arise, my head, arise. From your pillow take your leave and greet the day with prayers and praises, for Christ is Risen! Go quickly to your work, with joy and with energy, for Christ is Risen! Sing in your heart, my soul, for Christ is risen! Move swift to do good, my feet, for Christ is Risen! Let my mouth tell of your goodness, O God, for Christ is Risen!

Rejoice and be exceedingly glad, o my soul, for Christ is Risen! Rejoice o Blessed Virgin, the most holy Mother of our God, for your Son has Risen!

Rejoice, o saints, rejoice o martyrs, rejoice those in chains, for Christ is Risen from the dead, trampling down death by death, and to those in the tombs restoring life! Rejoice, o sick and suffering pilgrim, Christ is Risen! Rejoice of friend of sinners, Christ is Risen from the dead!

Christ is Risen!
