Easter Day: He is risen. Alleluia!

This is the day, Lord God, that you have made! 

Raising Christ from the dead, and raising us with Christ, 
you have fashioned for yourself a new people, 
washed in the flood of baptism, 
sealed with gift of the Spirit, 
invited to the marriage supper of the Lamb! 

In the beauty of this Easter 
help us to set our minds on the new life 
to which you have anointed us; 
that we may celebrate the festival 
with the unleavened bread of sincerity and truth. 

As we hear the word that brings salvation, 
make our hearts burn within us. 

Through the presence of every friend and stranger, 
reveal to us the face of him who had first to suffer, 
but who now has entered into glory, 
Jesus Christ, our Passover and our Peace, 

who lives and reigns with you 
in the unity of the Holy Spirit, 
one God for ever and ever. Amen. 

To family and friends, and to all readers of this blog around the world . . . May the Lord bless you and keep you. May you know his risen presence from day to day. Happy Easter!
