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.

Fort Worth parish ordinariate bound: The Church of England Newspaper, Dec 9, 2011 p 6. « Conger

It appears that all is not well in Oz. With the defection of the Anglican Mission in the Americas from the full membership status in the Anglican Church in North America the first cracks in the new coalition of "orthodox" Anglo-Catholics in North America have appeared. Episcopalian and Anglican continuing denominations and the ACNA remain predominately advocates of Tractarianism and Anglo-Catholicism, which is really nothing more than "Roman Catholic-lite"--great taste! Less filling! Now congregations, which should be satisfied with the new "orthodoxy" in the ACNA, are taking up the Roman Catholic offer of an ordinariate. Why settle for near beer when the "real" thing is now an option? "Evangelical" Anglicans leaving for Rome? Mike Horton should be horrified!

"Why cain't we all jus' git along"? --Rodney King after the LA riots in 1992.

A Fort Worth mission congregation will ask its members to ratify the request of its vicar and parish council to accept Pope Benedict XVI’s invitation to enter into full communion with Rome through the Anglican Ordinariate.
