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.

Music: Tchaikovsky, "The 1812 Overture"

I take it that a blog that is both gay and anarchist is, after the release of V for Vendetta, legally and morally required to post this on Guy Fawkes Day. I am, also, a fan of Tchaikovsky in his own right. Admittedly this is only the finale, but it's the bit with the cannons that everyone loves.

  1. Because nobody rocks cannons better than 19th century autocrats giving 19th century autocrats the boot.
