“Weekly News” for
THE UNITED BENEFICE OF PADSTOW
ST. MERRYN and ST. ISSEY with ST. PETROC MINOR
Sunday March 4th 2018 – THIRD SUNDAY OF LENT
A warm welcome to any visitors with us today
Introduction and call to worship
Let us worship the one true God, Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, through whom we have been rescued from slavery to sin.
whose most dear Son went not up to joy but first he suffered pain,
and entered not into glory before he was crucified:
Mercifully grant that we, walking in the way of the cross,
may find it none other than the way of life and peace;
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
First Reading Exodus 20:1-17
God’s commandments explain how we should treat him and each other if we wish to live a life that is blessed.
Second Reading 1 Corinthians 1:18-25
People who seek salvation in a show of strength or wisdom find it hard to believe in a crucified Saviour.
Gospel St. John 2:13-22
Jesus, the incarnate demonstration of God’s way, is shocked to find the Temple in Jerusalem demonstrating the way of greed and exploitation.
Merciful Lord, grant your people grace to withstand the temptations
of the world, the flesh and the devil,
and with pure hearts and minds to follow you, the only God;
through Jesus Christ our Lord.
