Collect for the Feast of the Resurrection:
Almighty God, who through your only-begotten Son Jesus Christ overcame death and opened to us the gate of everlasting life: Grant that we, who celebrate with joy the day of the Lord’s resurrection, may be raised from the death of sin by your life-giving Spirit; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever. Amen.
To quote The Rev'd Bill Carroll, who also has an Easter sermon at Episcopal Café --
Easter blessings to everyone. Christ is risen, destroying all that degrades and enslaves us, and making us citizens of the Commonwealth of God, in which none is afore, none after.
