Collect


Collect for the First Sunday of Advent

O almighty God, give us grace that we may cast away the works of darkness, and put upon us the armor of light, now in the time of this mortal life in which thy Son Jesus Christ came to visit us in great humility; that in the last day, when he shall come again in his glorious majesty to judge both the quick and the dead, we may rise to the life immortal; through the same Jesus Christ thy Son our Lord, who liveth and reigneth with thee, in the unity of the Holy Spirit, ever one God, world without end. Amen.

Pray for Baltimore

Some of you may know this already, but Baltimore is having a bad year for crime, even for Baltimore. There having been dozens of shootings, about a third of them fatal. I'd like to ask all my readers to pray for the city. For those who are Catholic, Orthodox, &c., the patron saints of the city are Mary Immaculate and St. Ignatius de Loyola; I'm planning to make appeals to the Sacred Heart of Jesus as well. God grant His mercy to us.
