To begin play – Jesus Christ Is Risen Today https://youtu.be/tDPWFvBSUMw
Then say – Christ is Risen! He is risen indeed! and pray- Living God, long ago, faithful women proclaimed the good news of Jesus’ resurrection, and the world was changed forever. Teach us to keep faith with them, that our witness may be as bold, our love as deep, and our faith as true. Amen.

Then pray – Jesus, through your death and resurrection you reconciled the world to God, and through your example you have shown us a way to love. Give us strength as the people of God to be channels of love in the world, speaking your love, and living your love. Thank you, God, for hope when hope was lost and for life when death had won. In these pandemic times when so many are suffering and dying resurrect within our world the faith and hope and love we need to survive.
This Easter, accept our humble hosannas, which are linked with our deepest prayers for relief from this virus. Healer of our every ill, we need you now. Amen.
