Easter Prayer

Christos Aneste!  Christ is risen!  The response is Alithos Aneste!  He is risen indeed!  Whether your interpretation of the resurrection is literal or metaphorical, Easter morning is always welcome.  The conflation with Spring and new life is no coincidence… we are grateful for the cycle of renewal in all its forms.

Now the green blade rises from the buried grain;

Wheat that in dark earth for may days has lain;

Love lives again, that with the dead has been:

Love is come again like wheat that rises green.
