OFFERTORY PRAYER OF THE WEEK -- APRIL 1, 2018

RESURRECTION OF THE LORD

Glorious God, we rejoice in Jesus’ victory over death! You raised him up to live forever. He left behind his linen wrappings-- the shroud, his grave clothes. Robed in white, Christ leads us from darkness to light. Help us to follow him, leaving behind the things of our past that obscure our horizons. We dedicate these offerings as tokens of the breaking dawn of Christ. May our gratitude shine forth by joyfully giving of our earthly goods. Amen. (John 20:1-18)
