Closing Prayer

Take two minutes of quiet in your group to identify a way you as a disciple of Jesus have gotten over fear, anger, or paralysis in some small ways recently. Then pray the following passage from Sunday’s second reading together (2 Corinthians 5.14-17).

LEADER: The love of Christ impels us who have reached the conviction that since one died for all, all died.

ALL: The old order has passed away. Now all is new.

LEADER: Jesus died for all so that those who live might live no longer for themselves but for him who for their sakes died and was raised up.

ALL: The old order has passed away. Now all is new.

LEADER: Because of this we no longer look on anyone in terms of mere human judgment.

ALL: The old order has passed away. Now all is new.

LEADER: Anyone who is in Christ is a new creation.

ALL: The old order has passed away. Now all is new.
