Scripture For the Easter Season








Easter Sunday


Light and Life

God of joy,

you lead us along the path

to the garden tomb,

where we discover in the dark

and in the emptiness,

light and new life.

Give us the strength and courage

to enter this time of redemption

and to proclaim the message

of the Risen Christ to all we encounter.

By our Baptism, we are anointed

priest, prophet, and king.

May we live this threefold mission

and bear witness to the world.

We ask this through Christ our Lord. Amen.
