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.

Reformation Day, Martin Luther Movie, 1953

The issue of Luther's day was not liberty of conscience in the progressive and revisionist version of history.  Rather, Martin Luther stood for the doctrine of sola Scriptura.  Scripture is the final authority in all matters of theological dispute, not the church or even the civil government.  Scripture interprets itself.  Where one passage is unclear other plain passages clarify the more difficult passages.  Since revelation is rational and logical, it is perfectly perspicuous and plain such that even the plow boy and the small child can read and understand the Scriptures and come to saving faith.  (2 Timothy 3:15-17).
