Litany for 8 April 2012 - Easter Sunday

Easter Sunday 8 April 2012:
Call to Worship
L: O God, too often we miss the meaning of Easter.
P: We see the tomb with the stone pulled aside.
L: We see the linen wrappings.
P: We see the cloth rolled up in a place by itself.
L: We stand with Mary, weeping outside the tomb,
All: not comprehending, disbelieving, afraid.
L: Guide us so that we too can say, as Mary did before us,
All: We have seen the Lord! Alleluia!
                    inspired by John 20:1-18
