Christ is Risen. He is risen indeed. Halelujah

Off to Easter residential today. Coming soon to this blog: Grandmere Mimi and the Reverend Boy to hold the fort in my absence. I shall be thinking of you during the week.

A Blessed Easter to you all. Halelujah!

God of all goodness,
because of the resurrection of your Son Jesus Christ
the morning of the new creation dawns.
The day of the Lord has come.
The wells of salvation have opened.
In Holy Baptism you have joined us
to Christ's triumphal procession.
Grant to us the spirit of the resurrection,
that we may forever praise you
and rejoice in the gift of salvation,
through Jesus Christ our Lord,
who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit,
one God, forever and ever.

The guarding of the God of life be upon us.
The guarding of the loving Christ be upon us.
The guarding of the Holy Spirit be upon us
to aid us and enfold us
each day and night of our lives.
