We thank you, Eternal God, that you have answered us and have become our salvation through the human pilgrimage of Jesus Christ-doing good, healing the sick, suffering unjustly, dying heroically, and rising victoriously.  Vicariously and in reality help us to join you in your suffering in conflict with evil that we may worship you here and hereafter.  Amen.
