Almighty God, who through your only‑begotten Son Jesus
                                Christ overcame death and opened to us the gate of
                                everlasting life:
        Grant that we, who celebrate with joy the
                                day of the Lord’s resurrection, may be raised from the death
                                of sin by your life‑giving Spirit;
         through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit,
        one God, now and for ever. Amen.
