Commonly called Ash-Wednesday.

The Collect.

ALMIGHTY and everlasting God, who hatest nothing that thou hast made and dost forgive the sins of all them that are penitent; Create and make in us new and contrite hearts, that we, worthily lamenting our sins, and acknowledging our wretchedness, may obtain of thee, the God of all mercy, perfect remission and forgiveness; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

Easter Sunday Gaff: PCUSA Pastor Goofs the Sermon

I visited Murrysville First Presbyterian Church on Easter Sunday, April 8th, 2012 in Murrysville, Pennsylvania.  The pastor made a gaff on John 19:33 and said that "It is finished," was from a Hebrew word, "Tetelesthai."  However, the word is from the Greek New Testament and the root word is "teleo" for "finish" or "complete."  The parsing is 3rd person, perfect passive indicative of "teleo".  Here's the analysis information from the analysis window in Bibleworks 9.0:

from τελέω

[GING] τελέω
τελέω1. bring to an end, finish, complete Mt 7:28; 11:1; 13:53; Lk 2:39; 2 Ti 4:7; Rv 11:7. Come to an end Rv 20:3, 5, 7. Find consummation 2 Cor 12:9.—2. carry out, accomplish, keep Lk 18:31; Ac 13:29; Ro 2:27; Gal 5:16; Js 2:8.—3. pay Mt 17:24; Ro 13:6. [pg 198]

--  Glory be to the Father, and to the Son : and to the Holy Ghost; As it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be : world without end. Amen.
