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.

177. Wherein do the sacraments of baptism and the Lord's supper differ?

Answer: The sacraments of baptism and the Lord's supper differ, in that baptism is to be administered but once, with water, to be a sign and seal of our regeneration and ingrafting into Christ,1 and that even to infants;2 whereas the Lord's supper is to be administered often, in the elements of bread and wine, to represent and exhibit Christ as spiritual nourishment to the soul,3 and to confirm our continuance and growth in him,4 and that only to such as are of years and ability to examine themselves.5

Looks like Ligonier was infiltrated by paedocommunionististas and Federal Visionists around 2006. Don't know if that is still the case or not. No wonder David Gray is such an ass over at Green Bagginses.
