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.

Anglicans Ablaze: How Reliable Is the New ACNA Catechism?

Anglicans Ablaze: How Reliable Is the New ACNA Catechism?: By Robin G. Jordan In this third article in the article series, “The New ACNA Catechism – A Closer Look,” we continue our examinatio...

The authority of the Apostles Creed comes from its agreement with the teaching of Scripture. It is pure hyperbole, if not outright distortion of the truth, to suggest that one of the Apostles Creed’s purposes is “guiding our understanding of God’s revealed truth at points where our sin-clouded minds might go astray” Implied in such an assertion is the notion that the Apostles Creed is something more than it is, that it is on the same level as Scripture itself. The Apostles Creed is simply a summary of what Scripture teaches. It has no mystical or supernatural power to keep us from straying into error.
