“Weekly News” for 

 THE UNITED BENEFICE OF PADSTOW

ST. MERRYN and ST. ISSEY with ST. PETROC MINOR

 January 14th 2018 – SECOND SUNDAY OF EPIPHANY

A warm welcome to any visitors with us today

INTRODUCTION

Jesus calls us to be disciples, saying; “Follow Me!” We meet to hear his call, to respond to it, and to commit ourselves to service in his Church and in the world.

 

THE COLLECT FOR THE SECOND SUNDAY OF EPIPHANY

Almighty God, in Christ you make all things new:

transform the poverty of our nature by the riches of your grace,

and in the renewal of our lives make known your heavenly glory;

through Jesus Christ your Son our Lord,

who is alive and reigns with you, in the unity of the Holy Spirit,

one God, now and for ever. Amen

 

THE READINGS   (Page 421/424)

First Reading                                      1 Samuel 3: 1-10

God’s call to Samuel is persistent and unexpected. It is the tired old man, Eli, who recognizes what is happening and who is able to provide guidance.

 

Second Reading                              Revelation 5: 1-10

Who is worthy to discover the mind of God? The vision speaks of those from ‘every tribe, language, people and nation’  –  no-one is left out from the call to serve God.

 

Gospel                                              St. John l: 43-51

The selection of the apostles seems to be a haphazard affair. These very ordinary followers are to become leaders. Being with Jesus will change disciples into apostles.

POST COMMUNION PRAYER

God of glory, you nourish us with your Word

who is the bread of life:

fill us with your Holy Spirit

that through us the light of your glory

may shine in all the world.

We ask this in the name of Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen
