Merciful God, you pardon our offenses and renew our joy. In faith we pray: 

God, our Savior, hear us.  

You raised Jesus from the dead: help your Church to proclaim the Good News. 

God, our Savior, hear us.  

You forgive our sin: show mercy to those on death row, and help us to end the death penalty. 

God, our Savior, hear us.  

You promise eternal life: fix our hearts on Jesus, and teach us your hidden wisdom. 

God, our Savior, hear us.  

Our Father . . .  

May God grant us joy of heart, and may peace abide among us, through Jesus, the Son of God. Amen.
