Holy Saturday/ Easter Vigil

A big shout out to all the bees who have so willingly supplied the wax for tonight's Paschal Candle. Here is the prayer from tonight's service:
Dear friends in Christ: On this most holy night, in which our Lord Jesus passed over from death to life, the Church invites her members, dispersed throughout the world, to gather in vigil and prayer. For this is the Passover of the Lord, in which, by hearing his Word and celebrating his Sacraments, we share in His victory over death.

Let us pray.

O God, through your Son you have bestowed upon your people the brightness of your light: Sanctify this new fire, and grant that in this Paschal feast we may so burn with heavenly desire that with pure minds we may attain to the festival of the everlasting light; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amem.
