Christ is risen! Alleluia!

The Lord is risen indeed!  Alleluia!
One of the east windows in Saint Nicholas' (photographed by Paul Dawson) which shows the meeting between Jesus and Mary - the Gospel reading for Easter Day.

Almighty God, 
through your only-begotten Son Jesus Christ 
you have overcome death 
and opened to us the gate of everlasting life: 
Grant that, as by your grace going before us 
you put into our minds good desires, 
so by your continual help we may bring them to good effect; 
through Jesus Christ our risen Lord 
who is alive and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, 
one God, now and for ever.
