SUNDAY FEBRUARY 10th : Fourth Sunday before Lent
A warm welcome to visitors who join us today. Please take our love and prayers to your home parish.
Jesus called his first disciples. Today we hear of Jesus finding new ways to talk to people and to teach them, and we hear of his calling of those first disciples. May we hear Jesus calling us.
O God, you know us to be set in the midst of so many and great dangers, that by reason of the frailty of our nature we cannot always stand upright:
grant to us such strength and protection as may support us in all dangers and carry us through all temptations;
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
Go before us, Lord, in all we do with your most gracious favour, and guide us with your continual help,
that in all our works begun, continued and ended in you, we may glorify your holy name, and finally by your mercy receive everlasting life; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen
READINGS FOR TODAY (Lectionary pages 794/796)

Isaiah’s vision of the glory of God – where we get the ‘holy, holy, holy’ from.
Second Reading 1 Corinthians 15: 1-11
Some Christians in Corinth had questioned the teachings of the resurrection of the dead. St. Paul argues that the Resurrection of Jesus Christ proves it.
