Fourth Sunday of Easter

Collect

Almighty God, whose Son Jesus Christ is the resurrection and the life:
raise us, who trust in him, from the death of sin to the life of righteousness, that we may seek those things which are above, where he reigns with you
in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God,
now and for ever.

Post Communion

Merciful Father,
you gave your Son Jesus Christ to be
the good shepherd,
and in his love for us to lay down his life and rise again:
keep us always under his protection,
and give us grace to follow in his steps;
through Jesus Christ our Lord.
