The Liturgy Letter Newsletter – Sixth Sunday in Easter 2017 (Year A)

 

In Him We Live and Move and Have Our Being

The true God has been revealed to the whole world through the life and death of Jesus Christ (Acts 17:22-31). God can truly be known, even when we suffer for his sake (1 Peter 3:13-22). We can be assured of God’s care for us and know that he listens to our prayers. In response, we offer our gratitude and confess what he has done for us (Psalm 66:8-20). We find freedom and take joy in his commands through the power of the Holy Spirit (John 14:15-21).

EASTER MONDAY

BY CHRISTINA ROSSETTI (Source)

Out in the rain a world is growing green,
On half the trees quick buds are seen
Where glued-up buds have been.
Out in the rain God’s Acre stretches green,
Its harvest quick tho’ still unseen:
For there the Life hath been.

If Christ hath died His brethren well may die,
Sing in the gate of death, lay by
This life without a sigh:
For Christ hath died and good it is to die;
To sleep whenso He lays us by,
Then wake without a sigh.

Yea, Christ hath died, yea, Christ is risen again:
Wherefore both life and death grow plain
To us who wax and wane;
For Christ Who rose shall die no more again:
Amen: till He makes all things plain
Let us wax on and wane.
