May Christ fill you with the joy of His resurrection

An icon of the Resurrection of Christ (detail)

The risen Jesus draws Adam and Eve from the grave.

**

AND may Christ fill you with the joy of His resurrection, most holy flock of Christ, Christian people, chosen race, body of the Church, and make you worthy to walk in the footsteps of the saints, of the shepherds and teachers of the Church, leading you to enjoy His glory in the brightness of the saints.

May you gain His glory for eternity, with the Uncreated Father, to whom be praise for ever.

Amen.

St John Damascene, Third Speech on the Icons (close).
