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.

Robin Jordan: Limping Along Between Good Works and Salvation by Faith "Alone"


"Already the Anglican Church in North America is doubled-minded in regards to the essence of Gospel teaching. Like the people of Israel in the time of prophet Elijah it limps along between two opinions with one part of the church preaching sacraments and good works and another salvation by faith. As Elijah drew to the attention of the people of Israel, they could not bend a knee to Baal and kiss him and also serve the LORD. "If the LORD is God, follow him; but if Baal, follow him" (1 Kings 18:21). Elijah then proposed a test."  Robin Jordan.  Anglicans Ablaze, "How Are They to Believe?"
  Glory be to the Father, and to the Son : and to the Holy Ghost;
    Answer. As it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be : world without end. Amen.
