Easter Blessing

May Almighty God, who has redeemed us and made us his children through the resurrection of his Son our Lord, bestow on you the riches of his blessing. 


May God, who through the water of baptism has raised us from sin into newness of life, make you holy and worthy to be united with Christ for ever. 


May God who has brought us out of bondage to sin into true and lasting freedom in the Redeemer, bring you to your eternal inheritance.


And the blessing of God Almighty, the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit, be upon you and remain with you forever.  AMEN

“‘Why are you frightened, and why do doubts arise in your hearts? Look at my hands and my feet; see that it is I myself.’.. And when he had said this, he showed them his hands and his feet. While in their joy they were disbelieving and still wondering, he said to them, ‘Have you anything here to eat?’ They gave him a piece of broiled fish, and he took it and ate in their presence.”  – Luke 24:38-43
