Almighty God, you have surrounded us with a great cloud of witnesses: Grant that we, encouraged by the good example of your servant Christina, may persevere in running the race that is set before us, until at last we may with her attain to your eternal joy; through Jesus Christ, the pioneer and perfecter of our faith, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one
God, for ever and ever. (Book of Common Prayer 1979)
Let us pray to our Risen Lord, who invites us to share in his Resurrection.
