Easter Season 2002 Message

March 31, 2002


A prayer at Eastertide


Risen Christ,


in the midst of grief and despair,


at the very point when all seemed lost


you stood in the midst of your friends in the fullness of your resurrection reality


and proclaimed your peace:


a peace that reorders and renews all things.


May the same peace find a home in us


and, at the urging of your Spirit,


may we be today and everyday


bearers of hope


and enablers of peace


in the power of your Name.


Amen


The Most Reverend Frank T. Griswold
XXV Presiding Bishop and Primate
The Episcopal Church, USA
