There are many home communions to be done and services each evening ... but the joy of resurrection is something else!
Today our family had a big Sunday dinner at my sister's. Everyone was there and the craic was great. For those who haven't met the mad bunch we have, from left to right in the back row in pale blue it is myself ... then Wee Sister Mary, her daughter Julie and Ellen, the middle sister. My great nieces are the pretty little girls in the front. They're looking forward to the Easter Egg Hunt on Sunday next.
Almighty and everlasting God,
who, in your tender love towards the human race,
sent your Son our Saviour Jesus Christ
to take upon him our flesh
and to suffer death upon the cross:
Grant that we may follow the example
of his patience and humility,
and also be made partakers of his resurrection;
through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
