Priest: The Lord be with you.
Faithful: And also with you.
Priest: Bow your heads and pray for God’s blessing.
Through the resurrection of his Son, God has redeemed you and made you his children.
May he bless you with joy.
The Redeemer has given you lasting freedom.
May you inherit his everlasting life.
By faith you rose with him in baptism.
May your lives be holy, so that you will be united with him for ever.
May almighty God bless you,
the Father, and the Son, and the Holy Spirit.
