you filled your disciples with boldness and fresh hope:
strengthen us to proclaim your risen life and fill us with your
to the glory of God the Father.
John 20 : 11-31
1 John 1:3
This Collect does two important things. Firstly it tells us that
Christ is risen from the dead. It does this very simply by using
the word 'risen' twice. Secondly it asks for us to become like the
disciples and to tell the story of what Jesus said and did - before
and after Easter. That is what 'proclaim your risen life'
(Collect from Easter Day to Pentecost)
