Easter God, who keeps appearing to us until we take you in,

we praise you for the sacraments you give us today:

the splash of water on our hands, welcoming us into the day,

the luxury of a shower, evidence of our fortunate lives,

the communion of coffee with a friend, or mac and cheese with a child.

Be present, we pray, for all who are hungry and thirsty for these simple sacraments,

filling the emptiness with both bread and presence.

In the name of the Presence, Amen.
