THE COLLECT FOR THIRTEENTH SUNDAY AFTER TRINITY
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.
