Easter Evenadmin | 23 April 2011
The collect for today, Easter Even, or Holy Saturday, from The Book of Common Prayer (Canadian, 1962):
GRANT, O Lord, that as we are baptized into the death of thy blessed Son our Saviour Jesus Christ, so by continual mortifying our corrupt affections we may be buried with him; and that, through the grave, and gate of death, we may pass to our joyful resurrection; for his merits, who died, and was buried, and rose again for us, thy Son Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
