      Christ is Risen! + Truly He is Risen!


      By your sins you have shown yourself to be a thankless slave and son to such an
      all-good Master and to your most affectionate Father, Who loved you before the
      ages, not on account of some worthiness of your own, but on account of His
      goodness did He decided in His divine mind to create you, when He could have
      created others instead of you.

      You have wronged Him because you have shown yourself to be thankless to the God
      Who granted you being,
      Who formed you in His image and likeness,
      Who gave you a body containing all of the senses and a soul with all of the
      faculties,
      Who made you king of all earthly creatures,
      Who has provided you with sustenance, clothing, and shelter,
      Who has commanded all of His sensible creatures to serve you,
      Who saved you from so many dangers, illnesses, and poverty that so many suffer
      others suffer from,

      Who gave you an angel to stand by you always and protect you.
