Collect Almighty God, you raised your Son Jesus Christ from the dead, seated him on high, and gave him to the Church as the Second Adam who rules over your creation,
Form us in following him, that we might care for creation, not in an exercise of power but in humble service and self-sacrificial love,
Through Jesus Christ, your Son, our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and forever. Amen.
