Extravagant Love: The Response To Extravagant Love 4.7.19

Reflection

Maundy Thursday

This is the day that Christ the Lamb of God gave himself into the hands of those who would slay him.

This is the day that Christ gathered with his disciples in the upper room.

This is the day that Christ took a towel and washed the disciples’ feet, giving us an example that we should do to others as he has done to us.

This is the day that Christ our God gave us this holy feast, that we who eat this bread and drink this cup may here proclaim his Holy Sacrifice and be partakers of his resurrection, and at the last day may reign with him in heaven.

Good Friday

Almighty God, look graciously, we pray, on this your family,

for whom our Lord Jesus Christ was willing to be betrayed

and given into the hands of sinners, and to suffer death upon the cross;

who now lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit,

one God, for ever and ever.

Holy Saturday

O God, creator of heaven and earth,

as the crucified body of your dear Son was laid in the tomb and rested on this holy Sabbath,

so may we await with him the coming of the third day, and rise with him to newness of life;

who now lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit,

one God, now and for ever.

Easter

Rejoice, heavenly powers! Sing, choirs of angels!

Exult, all creation around God’s throne! Jesus Christ, our King, is risen! Sound the trumpet of salvation!

Rejoice, O earth, in shining splendour, radiant in the brightness of your King! Christ has conquered!

Glory fills you! Darkness vanishes for ever!

Rejoice, O Mother Church! Exult in glory! The risen Saviour shines upon you!

Let this place resound with joy, echoing the mighty song of all God’s people!
