“Weekly News” for

THE UNITED BENEFICE OF PADSTOW

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

February 18th 2018 – FIRST SUNDAY OF LENT

A warm welcome to any visitors with us today

INTRODUCTION

Following his baptism Jesus spent forty days in the wilderness, resisting temptation –  preparing for his work and ministry.

THE COLLECT

Almighty God, whose Son Jesus Christ fasted forty days in the wilderness,
and was tempted as we are, yet without sin:
give us grace to discipline ourselves in obedience to your Spirit;
and, as you know our weakness, so may we know your power to save;
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 .

TODAY’S READINGS (Page 458/459)

First Reading                                      Genesis 9:8-17

Noah and his family have been brought to safety through water, and God promises never to destroy his creation.

 

Second Reading                                1 Peter 3:18-22

Noah and all departed souls have been visited by Jesus after his death. So Baptism  – being saved through water – is more than the removal of dirt, it requires a good conscience – obedience to God’s will.

 

Gospel                                                  St. Mark 1: 9-15

Jesus is baptised by John, acknowledged by God as his only son, tempted in the wilderness and begins his public ministry.

 

POST-COMMUNION PRAYER

Lord God, you have renewed us with the living bread from heaven;
by it you nourish our faith, increase our hope, and strengthen our love:
teach us always to hunger for him who is the true and living bread,
and enable us to live by every word that proceeds from out of your mouth;

through Jesus Christ our Lord.  Amen.

THE COLLECT

Almighty God, you have created the heavens and the earth

and made us in your own image:

Teach us to discern your hand in all your works and your likeness in all your children;

Gospel                                           St. John 1.1-14

John, with their sense of awe, wonder and mystery, tells of Jesus’ coming as the light of the world and of his presence with us since the beginning of time.

 

POST-COMMUNION PRAYER

God our creator, by your gift

the tree of life was set at the heart of the earthly paradise,

 January 28th 2018 – FOURTH SUNDAY OF EPIPHANY

 A warm welcome to any visitors with us today

INTRODUCTION

In this season of Epiphany, we are invited to look at the ways in which Jesus reveals his Divine nature. Today we hear of the authority of Jesus as he commands the unclean spirit to come out of the man possessed.

 

THE COLLECT

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

 

TODAY’S READINGS

First Reading                                 Deuteronomy 18:15-20

The Old Testament promise of a prophet sent from God, which the Apostles found fulfilled in Christ.

 

Second Reading                            Revelation 12:1-5a

The vision of St. John the Divine continues with the sight of “a woman clothed with the sun.  She gave birth to a child who is to rule all the nations with a rod of iron”.

 

Gospel                                           St. Mark 1:21-28

The authority of Jesus is without question. The man with the unclean spirit was healed when Jesus drove it.  “He commands even the unclean spirits and they obey him”.

 

POST-COMMUNION PRAYER

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. Amen

ST. MERRYN A Treasurer /Book-keeper is required for St. Merryn Church. Can anyone help? Please contact Phil Gorse 520544 or Moira Gill 520418 for further details.

Many of you will remember last year, two groups of pilgrims walking and trying out the walk from Padstow to Constantine Bay last year, with the Revd. Nigel Marns and Revd. Kirsten Norfolk as they tried and tested this section of the route.  All the walks have now been done and collated to produce a great book.
