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.

Archbishop Thomas Cranmer

I thought this would be an appropriate portrait to include in the blog since Archbishop Thomas Cranmer was the primary figure in the English Reformation. Let us never forget that he was in no wise an Anglo-Catholic and that he gave his life for the Protestant cause. Cranmer would be appalled at the current state of the Anglican communion, particularly Anglo-Catholicism, ordination of women and homosexuals, and a host of other departures from orthodoxy.

May God grant us mercy!
