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.

Government Intrusion into the Freedom of Religion

I'm not Roman Catholic and I am not sympathetic to the teachings of the Roman Catholic Church. However, in the United States the Bill of Rights and the First Amendment guarantees the freedom of religion and that there can be no government interference in religious matters or teaching. When the state tries to impose its politically correct views on abortion and birth control on a Catholic college the rights of every Christian church and institution is threatened. The principle of the separation of church and state works both ways, not just in the direction of preventing churches from posting the Ten Commandments on court house grounds. The state may not tax, hinder or interfere with individual churches or denominations or any of their institutions in any way. To do so is to violate the First Amendment rights of individuals and their churches.
