life out of death and open new

horizons of hope for the world

Jesus is laid

in the tomb

We pause to contemplate this act

of closure on his life. In solidarity with all

humanity, his body is taken to its grave

of Christ lives today

Through our prayers and actions may we bring hope to the world
