Collect of the Day

The Second Sunday in Lent.

The Collect

ALMIGHTY God, who seest that we have no power of ourselves to help ourselves; Keep us both outwardly in our bodies, and inwardly in our souls; that we may be defended from all adversities which may happen to the body, and from all evil thoughts which may assault and hurt the soul; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

The Collect from the First Day of Lent is to be read every day in Lent after the Collect appointed for the Day.

Podcast: Why Keep the 1662 Book of Common Prayer?

This podcast is from the The Prayer Book Society: Promoting the Continued Use of the 1662 Book of Common Prayer in the United Kingdom. It is sad that The Prayer Book Society of the USA is instead promoting the Anglo-Catholic prayer book or the 1928 BCP. It has been well said that the 1662 BCP is the most faithful to Cranmer's vision for the reformation of the English church according to Holy Scripture. Truly the aesthetic and theological foundations of the language of the 1662 BCP make it the most worthy prayer book for worship today. Those who wish to make worship profane and use everyday language do not realize the value of memorizing the beautiful language of the prayer book and the theological lessons to be internalized from it.
