Lent Cross Liturgy Easter Sunday
Easter is coming...
Easter is here...
Christ is risen!
He is risen indeed!
Darkness cannot overcome the light of God.
Death cannot defeat the life of God.
We take away the Symbols of betrayal, suffering and death.
Stripping the Cross
We remove the cup - the symbol of suffering love.
We remove the money- bag and thirty pieces of silver-the symbol of betrayal.
We remove the whip- the reminder or the cruelty inflicted upon our innocent Lord.
We remove the palms- symbol of praise that so quickly turned to derision and to cries of ‘crucify.’
We remove the bowl and towel and the bread and wine-symbols of the sacrificial love of Jesus.
We remove the nails- that held our Saviour to the cross.
We remove the crown of thorns and purple robe, the reminders of the mockery Jesus endured.
We replace the crown of thorns with a crown of flowers for Jesus is risen!
God has put an end to death and darkness
In risen life of Jesus Christ.
Christ is risen indeed,
Death is defeated.
The cross stands empty.
During the singing of the hymns the stewards will dress
the cross with the flowers we have brought.
