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.

Reasonable Christian: The Consensus Tigurinus Revisited

For those in doubt about the Reformed view of the sacraments a review of John Calvin's Consensus of Tigurinus is in order. In fact what Calvin drew up here would be very close to the view of Archbishop Thomas Cranmer as outlined in his treatise on the Lord's Supper. (See Churchman article, Cranmer's Doctrine of the Lord's Supper in its Gospel Context). To see excerpts from the google books version of Cranmer's work click on: The Lord's Supper.
