THE UNITED BENEFICE OF PADSTOW

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

 12th SUNDAY AFTER TRINITY (Proper 15)

SUNDAY AUGUST 19TH   2018

 

A warm welcome to visitors who join us today.  Please take our love and prayers to your home parish.

INTRODUCTION

In this Eucharist, we gather in faith to be nourished and renewed by the presence of the living Lord as we receive the sacrament in his name.

THE COLLECT

Almighty and everlasting God,

you are always more ready to hear than we to pray
and to give more than either we desire or deserve:
pour down upon us the abundance of your mercy,
forgiving us those things of which our conscience is afraid
and giving us those good things which we are not worthy to ask
but through the merits and mediation

of 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 (Lectionary Page 649/650)

First Reading                         Proverbs 9:1-6

Wisdom calls those who are simple in heart to follow her and walk in the way of insight that leads to fullness of life.

 

Second Reading                                   Ephesians 5:15-20

The writer cautions his readers to live wisely, and “understand what the will of the Lord is”. He encourages them to give thanks to God for all his gifts.

 

Gospel                                   St. John 6:51-58

Jesus claims to be the living “bread that came down from heaven”. He promises the gift of eternal life to all who “eat the flesh of the Son of Man and drink his blood”.

 

POST COMMUNION PRAYER

God of all mercy, in this Eucharist you have set aside our sins and given us your healing: grant that we who are made whole in Christ may bring that healing to this broken world,  in the name of Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

SUNDAY, 26TH AUGUST 13TH SUNDAY AFTER TRINITY (Proper 16)

INTRODUCTION

Jesus Christ has the words of eternal life. We believe and know that he is the Holy One of God.

THE COLLECT

Almighty God, who called your Church to bear witness
that you were in Christ reconciling the world to yourself:
help us to proclaim the good news of your love,
that all who hear it may be drawn to you;
through him who was lifted up on the cross,
and reigns with you in the unity of the Holy Spirit,
one God, now and for ever.  Amen.

 

POST COMMUNION PRAYER

God our creator, you feed your children with the true manna,

the living bread from heaven:

let this holy food sustain us through our earthly pilgrimage

until we come to that place where hunger and thirst are no more;

through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen

 

THE READINGS   – Proper 16 (Lectionary Page 654/656)

Reading                                 Joshua 24: 1-2a, 14-18

Joshua challenges the Israelites to choose which gods to serve. Those they left behind,

those of the peoples whose land they’ve occupied, or the one true God.

 

Reading                                  Ephesians 6: 10-20

Paul makes it clear that our battle is a spiritual one against the forces of evil.

Among our weapons are truth, righteousness and faith.

 

Gospel                                     St. John 6: 56-69

Jesus says that to live, people must feed off his flesh and blood. This physical image

of his spirit sustaining their spiritual lives means some of his followers leave him.
