INTRODUCTION

May we hear the words of God’s prophets and be inspired to speak out with our lives for justice and truth.

THE COLLECT FOR THE DAY

Almighty God, you have broken the tyranny of sin and have sent the Spirit of your Son into our hearts whereby we call you Father:

Give us grace to dedicate our freedom to your service, that we and all creation may be brought to the glorious liberty of the children of God:

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

 

READING (Proper 6 – Page 598/600)

Christ has overturned all human values, and everything is new.

POST-COMMUNION PRAYER
