|Easter Prayers to Glorify the Risen Christ
- · Easter Prayer of St. Hippolytus of Rome
Christ is Risen: The world below lies desolate
Christ is Risen: The spirits of evil are fallen
Christ is Risen: The angels of God are rejoicing
Christ is Risen: The tombs of the dead are empty
Christ is Risen indeed from the dead,
the first of the sleepers,
Glory and power are His forever and ever
St. Hippolytus (AD 190-236)
- · Marian Easter Prayer for Jesus Risen
Queen of heaven, rejoice, Alleluia,
For he whom you were worthy to bear, Alleluia,
Has risen, as he foretold, Alleluia;
Pray for us to God, Alleluia.
Rejoice and be glad, O Virgin Mary, Alleluia.
For the Lord has indeed risen, Alleluia.
God our Father, you give joy to the world by the resurrection of your Son, our Lord Jesus Christ.
Through the prayers of his mother, the Virgin Mary, bring us to the happiness of eternal life.
We ask this through Christ our Lord.
