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.

Faith "in" Christ or the Faithfulness "of" Christ? Clement vs. The New Perspective on Paul

Click on the title to read an interesting rebuttal of the view that Galatians 3:22 and other passages are examples of the "subjective genitive" rather than the "objective gentive". Is Jesus Christ the object of our faith or is the "faithfulness of Christ" the proper translation? Clement, the church father, seems to have believed that Christ was the object of our faith.  See Clement vs. The New Perspective on Paul.
