Almighty Father, who hast given thy only Son to die for our sins and to rise again for our justification: Give us so to put away the leaven of malice and wickedness, that we may always serve thee in pureness of living and truth; through the same Jesus Christ thy Son our Lord, who liveth and reigneth with thee and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever. Amen.

–U.S. Book of Common Prayer, “Friday in Easter Week.”

    Thank you for the prayer. People get so caught up in Easter eggs, ham and chocolate, they forget that Easter is about resurrection and that there has to be death and reflection on that before one can express and contemplate gratitude.
