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.

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.
