The Capuchin Franciscan Friars are a Roman Catholic religious order of brothers and priests inspired by the life and ideals of St. Francis of Assisi and living a life prayer and service to others.

God our Father, by raising Christ your Son you conquered the power of death
and opened for us the way to eternal life.
Let our celebration today raise us up and renew our lives
by the Spirit that is within us.
Grant this through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son,
who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit,
one God, for ever and ever. Amen © 2012 ICEL in the Liturgy, Inc. All Rights Reserved
