Rejoicing in the hope of eternal glory

What do you pray? Why?

Butterfly: a symbol of resurrection

Collect for Tuesday in Easter Week

O God, who by the glorious resurrection of your Son Jesus Christ destroyed death and brought life and immortality to light: Grant that we, who have been raised with him, may abide in his presence and rejoice in the hope of eternal glory; through Jesus Christ our Lord, to whom, with you and the Holy Spirit, be dominion and praise for ever and ever. Amen.

The Book of Common Prayer, p. 223

Once again I find myself interrogated by the Collect: how deeply do I embrace what I pray: that “Jesus Christ destroyed death and brought life and immortality to light”? Why do I hold this to be true? Who has convinced me? The questions lead to a rich meditation and further prayer. May this Collect provoke you to the same. ~Fr. Dan

Be well. Do good. Pay attention. Keep learning.
