Let us celebrate this joyful feast.

Jesus said, “People will come from east and west,

from north and south,

and join the banquet in the kingdom of God.”

Christ, the Prince of peace,

breaks down the walls that divide us.

The peace of the Lord be always with you

And also with you.

Let us offer one another a sign of peace

A sign of peace may be exchanged.

A hymn, psalm or anthem may be sung.
