Priest: Bow your heads and pray for God's blessing.
May almighty God bless you on this solemn feast of Easter,
and may he protect you against all sin.
Through the resurrection of his Son, God has granted us healing.
May he fulfill his promises, and bless you with eternal life.
You have mourned for Christ's sufferings;
now you celebrate the joy of his resurrection.
May you come with joy to the feast which lasts for ever.
May almighty God bless you,
the Father, and the Son, and the Holy Spirit.
