We are praying for our brothers and sisters who were killed this Easter morning in Sri Lanka. May they know the promise of the Resurrection and may God bring comfort to their families and their loved ones.

Only love can conquer evil and violence, so we ask Jesus this morning for the courage to love and we pray for the conversion of every heart that is hardened by hatred.

May the Blessed Virgin Mary, who is our mother and the mother of mercy, console those who are suffering and watch over all of us. And may God grant us peace.
