The Parish of Padstow
(St. Petroc’s, Padstow & St. Saviour’s, Trevone)
8th SUNDAY AFTER TRINITY-PROPER 11- Sunday 17th July
A warm welcome to visitors who join us today
As we welcome friends and neighbours into our homes, so we welcome Christ into our worship. May the gift of hospitality and love be present in our church, in our homes and in our hearts today.
Almighty Lord and everlasting God, we beseech you to direct, sanctify and govern both our hearts and bodies in the ways of your laws and the works of your commandments; that through your most mighty protection, both here and ever, we may be preserved in body and soul; through our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ, who is alive and reigns with you, in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, now and forever. Amen
THE READINGS (Page 992/994)
First Reading Genesis 18:1-10a
Angels visit Abraham to tell him that Sarah will have a child, and that Sodom and Gomorrah will be destroyed. He shows them traditional hospitality, realising they are messengers from God.
Second Reading Colossians 1:15-28
Paul reminds his converts of the divinity of Christ and of the wonder of the Incarnation. In Christ the fullness of God is displayed. He is the head of the Church.
Gospel St. Luke 10:38-42
Jesus is welcomed in the house of his friends, and speaks about the priorities in Christian life.
POST COMMUNION PRAYER
Strengthen for service, Lord, the hands that have taken holy things; may the ears which have heard your word be deaf to clamour and dispute; may the tongues which have sung your praise be free from deceit; may the eyes which have seen the tokens of your love shine with the light of hope; and may the bodies which have been fed with your body be refreshed with the fullness of your life; glory to
you forever. Amen.
Psalm 15 (Padstow only)
1 Lord, who may dwell in your tabernacle? ¨ Who may rest upon your holy hill?
2 Whoever leads an uncorrupt life ¨ and does the thing that is right;
3 Who speaks the truth from the heart ¨ and bears no deceit on the tongue;
4 Who does no evil to a friend ¨ and pours no scorn on a neighbour;
5 In whose sight the wicked are not esteemed, ¨ but who honours those who fear the Lord.
6 Whoever has sworn to a neighbour ¨ and never goes back on that word;
7 Who does not lend money in hope of gain, ¨ nor takes a bribe against the innocent;
8 Whoever does these things ¨ shall never fall.
Glory be to the Father, and to the Son; and to the Holy Ghost; as it was in the beginning , is now, and ever shall be; world without end. Amen.
