The Mission & Finance committee requested a copy of the prayer that we used at the Easter Vigil. I borrowed shamefully from the Collect in the Book of Common Prayer to create this litany.
Let us pray.
O God, through your Son you have bestowed upon your people the brightness of your light:Help us to be bearers of that light.
We remember all those who have come before us as witnesses to Christ’s light, especially Christopher, Bill, Susan, Herbert, Bubbles and all those saints who rest in this sacred place:Help us to honor the faith of our fathers and mothers in spirit and truth.
Sanctify this cross that it will lead us into your truth:Sanctify our hearts that we may follow where that truth may lead us
Sanctify this new fire, of new lifeMay we burn with heavenly desires
May we attain to the festival of everlasting light Through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
