Twenty-Second Sunday in Ordinary Time
Again, I want to share the Collect as we so often are not able to be attentive when it is read at the beginning of the Liturgy or maybe it is just that it is hard to take in unless you have it before you.
"God of might, giver of every good gift,
pour into our hearts the love of your name,
so that, by deepening our sense of reverence,
you may nurture in us what is good and,
by your watchful care,
keep safe what you have nurtured.
Through our Lord Jesus Christ, you Son,
who lives and reigns with you in the unity of the Holy Spirit,
one God, for ever and ever."
The second reading from the Letter of Saint James tells us to "humbly welcome the word that has been planted in you and is able to save your souls. Be doers of the word and not hearers only, deluding yourselves."
