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.

Why Do We Confess “He Descended Into Hell”? « Heidelblog

My main objection to Clark's article here is the idea that the Anglican view is the same as Luther's view on the descent into hell. That is debatable. It seems to me that Clark might be thinking of Anglo-Catholicism since Cranmer's influences were Puritan as well as Lutheran.

Must be the season for this topic... Go to Continuum and read Fr. Hart's take. He plants his flag in the Westminster Confession of Faith and notes Danny Hyde's research on the descent...


God bless,
