The Collect.


ALMIGHTY and everlasting God, who hatest nothing that thou hast made and dost forgive the sins of all them that are penitent; Create and make in us new and contrite hearts, that we, worthily lamenting our sins, and acknowledging our wretchedness, may obtain of thee, the God of all mercy, perfect remission and forgiveness; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

J. C. Ryle Quote of the Day

“Our Lord tells us that true Christians must make up their minds regarding trouble in this world. Whether we are ministers or hearers, whether we teach or are taught, it makes little difference. We must carry ‘a cross.’ We must be content to lose even life itself for Christ’s sake. We must submit to the loss of man’s favor, we must endure hardships, we must deny ourselves in many things, or we shall never reach heaven at last. So long as the world, the devil and our own hearts are what they are, these things must be so.”

~ J.C. Ryle
