Easter Prayers for Kids

In the weeks before Easter, chocolate, plastic Easter eggs, baskets, candy, cards and more fill the shelves of grocery stores.

However, if our children’s only experience of Easter is the Easter Bunny and the gifts it brings, they’ll completely miss the true meaning and importance of Easter.

You can celebrate Easter with baskets of treats and hearts filled with love of God. And it doesn’t require elaborate prayers. Pray one of these simple prayers with your kids to keep Jesus at the center of the day:

  • Red Jelly Bean Prayer: Red is for the blood you gave, and black is for the empty grave. Yellow is for the shining sun, white is for the new life begun. Green is for the grass and trees and purple is for your majesty. Orange is for the edge of night, and pink is for the morning light. Amen!
  •  Jesus, thank You for your sacrifice. Jesus, thank You for my life. Today is Easter so we pray, That we’ll join you in heaven someday.
  • Today is a very special Sunday. We thank you, God, for all the love You’ve given us and for the gift of Jesus. On this Easter, we pray in Your name. Amen.
  • Bunnies remind us of all the animals You made, and all the beautiful things You created. We love you, God, more than any chocolate, candy or toy. We ask for Your Easter blessing on this special day. Amen.

We are about to leave Lent and enter the liturgical season known as "Triduum."

What is this season, and why does the Church say that it is "the culmination of the entire liturgical year"?

Here are 6 things you need to know.


1. What does "Triduum" mean?

It comes from Latin roots that mean, essentially, "the three days" or "period of three days" (tri- = three, -dies = days).

Today it refers to the liturgical season that follows Lent and precedes the Easter season.

According to the main document governing the celebrations connected with Easter, Paschales Solemnitatis:

38. . . . This time is called "the triduum of the crucified, buried and risen"; it is also called the "Easter Triduum" because during it is celebrated the Paschal Mystery, that is, the passing of the Lord from this world to his Father.
