Collect

Prayer of the Congregants at the Penitential Rite

Almighty God, Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, maker of all things, judge of all men: we acknowledge and bewail our manifold sins and wickedness, which we, from time to time, have most grievously committed, by thought, word, and deed, against thy divine majesty, provoking most justly thy wrath and indignation against us. We do earnestly repent, and are heartily sorry for these our misdoings: the remembrance of them is grievous unto us, the burden of them is intolerable. Have mercy, have mercy upon us, most merciful Father; for thy son our Lord Jesus Christ's sake, forgive us all that is past; and grant that we may ever hereafter serve and please thee in newness of life, to the honor and glory of thy name; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

Reblog: Rabbi David Wolpe

Okay, so strictly speaking this isn't a reblog because the original wasn't a blog post. But this is an excellent article from the Rabbi of Los Angeles' Sinai Temple. (My favorite retort to the "spiritual but not religious" sentiment is "I'm religious but not spiritual," first heard courtesy of Brother Peter Totleben of the Dominican House of Studies in DC, but this takes a different tack.)
