To All Who Love Him

O God of the Universe,

you shed your glory, your majesty,

your omnipotence

to become human, as Jesus Christ--

to get close to us, to connect with us,

to be our role model and guide for living.

O God of the Universe,

you became the human Jesus Christ,

to know us, to feel all we feel,

to show us how much you love us

by taking within yourself all our sins.

O God of the Universe,

you felt not just one person's pain

but the pain of all of us,

to wash us clean and bond with us,

your creation, your children.

O God of the Universe,

you proved your transcendent holy power

by rising from the dead,

a sign that all of us who believe in You

will also rise to be with You eternally.

The resurrection of Jesus Christ

is the "Happy" in "Happy Easter."

Happy Easter to all those who love Him.
