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.

Presiding Bishop Katharine Jefferts Schori Calls for Jail Time for Conservative Christians Who Disagree with the Homosexual Agenda

Just when you thought it couldn't get any worse the presiding bishop of The Episcopal Church reveals her satanic inquisition against orthodox Christianity.  It is becoming increasingly clear that both political and theological liberals intend to use the totalitarian power of the state to remove religious freedom and institute a regime that will not tolerate religious freedom.  And why would anyone be surprised by this?  Here is an excerpt of Schori's sermon where she reveals the sinister nature of her agenda.  It would appear that she not only thinks the Apostle Paul deserved to go to jail but that modern and orthodox Christians who oppose homosexuality also deserve to go to jail:

To illustrate her point presiding bishop turned to the book of Acts, noting “There are some remarkable examples of that kind of blindness in the readings we heard this morning, and slavery is wrapped up in a lot of it.  Paul is annoyed at the slave girl who keeps pursuing him, telling the world that he and his companions are slaves of God.  She is quite right.  She’s telling the same truth Paul and others claim for themselves,” Bishop Jefferts Schori said, referencing the first chapter of the Epistle to the Romans.

“But Paul is annoyed, perhaps for being put in his place, and he responds by depriving her of her gift of spiritual awareness.  Paul can’t abide something he won’t see as beautiful or holy, so he tries to destroy it.  It gets him thrown in prison.  That’s pretty much where he’s put himself by his own refusal to recognize that she, too, shares in God’s nature, just as much as he does – maybe more so!,” the presiding bishop said.
