for the United Benefice of
Padstow, St. Merryn and St. Issey with St. Petroc Minor
SUNDAY JANUARY 20th
FOURTH SUNDAY OF EPIPHANY
A warm welcome to visitors who join us today. Please take our love and prayers to your home parish.
Today Jesus proclaims that the words of the Prophets are fulfilled and good news is given to the poor; we are all one in the Body of Christ.
God our creator, who in the beginning
commanded the light to shine out of darkness:
we pray that the light of the glorious gospel of Christ
may dispel the darkness of ignorance and unbelief,
shine into the hearts of all your people,
and reveal the knowledge of your glory
in the face 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
Generous Lord, in word and eucharist we have proclaimed the mystery of your love: help us so to live out our days
that we may be signs of your wonders in the world;
through Jesus Christ our Saviour.
THE READINGS (Page 780/782)

Ezra reads from the book of the law of Moses. He encourages the people to be confident and filled with joy.
