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.

The Saga Continues: The Mode of Real Presence?

Victor Novak has written a lengthy article for VirtueOnline where he directly contradicts the Declaration of Principles of the founding fathers of the Reformed Episcopal Church and even dares to say that Calvin's view of the mode of "real presence" is essentially "high Lutheran," which cannot be further from the truth. Please read Novak's article, CLASSICAL ANGLICANISM AND THE REAL PRESENCE OF CHRIST IN THE SACRAMENT OF HOLY COMMUNION, and my comments in response to it below. Judge for yourself. Also, please read carefully the lengthy quote I made from Cranmer there regarding the "figurative" use of the terms "body" and "blood" for the bread and wine.

Sincerely in Christ,
