The Collect/Prayer of the Day
Almighty God, we have celebrated with joy the festival of our Lord's resurrection. Now we ask for the help of your love to show the power of the resurrection in what we say and do; through the same Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
Acts 5:12, 17-32; Revelation 1:4-18; John 20:19-31
The message that "He lives" was intensified by the surprise visit of the risen Lord to his disciples. The greeting he gave is still shared by those who gather about his table to celebrate his resurrection, and receive his living presence: "Peace be with you." That's the way it will always be, no matter what we may be going through and what powers of evil are raging in the world. Easter makes it so!
