Collects for the first Sunday after Easter

Prayer book

ALMIGHTY Father, who has given thine only Son to die for our sins, and to rise again for our justification; Grant us so to put away the leaven of malice and wickedness, that we may alway serve thee in pureness of living and truth; through the merits of the same thy Son Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.


Grant, we beseech thee, Almighty God; that we who have fulfilled the Paschal Feast, may of thy bounty show forth its effects in our life and actions. Through.

God makes us truly right by transforming our lives if we fulfill our part in the New Covenant. The bread that we eat is unleavened because it does not need to rise. By His very nature, God's purity needs nothing to give it substance for He is the Bread of Life itself. An additions to our bread take substanc away from us. The evil that we do makes holes in our very being. Our wickedness makes us insubstantial and more like a phantom or a shade doomed to fade away into lifelessess.

Our Life is His gift to us, He gives us His grace that we may live for His pleasure and respond to that love He shows us. He gives us Himself to make us like Him so that one day, we may be able to see Him as He really is and know true Love.
