THE UNITED BENEFICE OF PADSTOW
ST. MERRYN and ST. ISSEY with ST. PETROC MINOR
TRINITY SUNDAY – SUNDAY MAY 27th 2018
Come, Holy Spirit! Set our hearts afire in worship, and breathe your power and wisdom into our lives.
Almighty and everlasting God, you have given us your servants grace,
by the confession of a true faith, to acknowledge the glory of the eternal Trinity and in the power of the divine majesty to worship the Unity:
Keep us steadfast in this faith, that we may evermore be defended from all adversities; 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.
TODAY’S READINGS (Page 565/567)
First Reading Isaiah 6:1-8
Isaiah has a vision of the holiness and majesty of God, and is called to proclaim the holy God to his unholy people.
Second Reading Romans 8:12-17
The Spirit enables us to know ourselves children of God, and brothers and sisters of Christ.
Gospel Reading St. John 3: 1-17
God sent his Son into the world so that everyone may choose to start afresh and enter into eternal life.
Almighty and eternal God, you have revealed yourself as Father, Son and Holy Spirit, and live and reign in the perfect unity of love:
Hold us firm in this faith, that we may know you in all your ways and evermore rejoice in your eternal glory,
who are three Persons yet one God, now and for ever.
