Let us thank our loving God for all his goodness: God our Father, we are your graceful work of art. When we were doomed to death through sin you called us to life through the death and resurrection of Jesus. Open us to your love and life given for free as a gift without charge or regret. Give us thankful hearts so that we learn from you and your Son to share our friendship with others. Accept our thanks through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
