The Benedictine way says look forward
All year round.
Keep in mind the Lord and His victory;
we share "with that mother blessed/ Of the sole-begotten One...
acceptance find, purer love attaining..." Our devotion said,
Look towards heaven, pray in harmony of love in heart
expanding to Easter
the year through.
Say the words, as God knows
their meaning in your mind, in your heart
each day, each morning new.
Easter words, of salvation offered freely to all,
"Give now the water of life to those who thirst for you..."
This is the day the Lord has made, let us be glad in it.
