2nd Sunday of Easter (Low Sunday)

Eastertide, which runs for 50 days, continues the proclamation of Christ’s resurrection, from Easter Sunday itself to Pentecost Sunday. This Sunday is traditionally known as ‘Low Sunday’ because it is the first one after the highest Christian festival, Easter itself. The risen Christ calls the Church to worship God in the ongoing joy that began on Easter night and to tell out the good news that through his resurrection God has conquered sin and death. Even though the world may not look very redeemed to us, God has in fact brought about salvation by raising Christ from the dead, as the promise of our future resurrection. Jesus is the sign of victory. It is for us to realise that victory in our own life and prayer and commit ourselves to the risen Jesus in faith, hope, and love.



Lord God our Father,

through our Saviour Jesus Christ

you have assured your children of eternal life

and in baptism have made us one with him:

deliver us from the death of sin

and raise us to new life in your love,

in the fellowship of the Holy Spirit,

by the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ. Amen.
