40th day of Lent: prayer and reading
O Lord Jesus Christ, for our sins you endured the cross and the grave, and on the third day you rose again from the tomb.
Just as you have cleansed us from our sins by your blood, and as we are buried with you in baptism, so by your grace, let us share in your resurrection; through your mercy,
O our God, you are blessed and live and govern all things, now and forever. Amen.
