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.

Westminster Larger Catechism: Question 51

Question 51

What was the estate of Christ’ s exaltation?

The estate of Christ’ s exaltation comprehendeth his resurrection, (1 Cor. 15:4) ascension, (Mark 16:19) sitting at the right hand of the Father, (Eph. 1:20) and his coming again to judge the world. (Acts 1:11, Acts 17:31)

The Westminster Larger Catechism: With Scripture Proofs. (Oak Harbor, WA: Logos Research Systems, Inc., 1996).

The word "comprehendeth" in this context means that Christ's exaltation in it's most complete and most full definition includes his resurrection, ascension, sitting at the Father's right hand, and his coming in the parousia to judge the living and the dead.
