Today's readings are: I Kings 17:17-24; Ephesians 3:13-21; Luke 7:11-17
The Introit is Psalm 86:1,7, 12-13 ; antiphon: Psalm 86:3,5
The Collect of the Day: O Lord, we pray that Your grace may always go before and follow after us, that we may continually be given to all good works; through Jesus Christ, Your Son, our Lord, who lives and reins with You and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and forever.
Today's Introit is picked especially because of today's baptism. It is Psalm 139:13-16.
The Collect of the Day O Lord, we implore You, let Your continual pity cleanse and defend Your Church; and because she cannot continue in safety without Your aid, preserve her evermore by Your help and goodness; through Jesus Christ, Your Son, our Lord, who lives and reigns with You and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and forever.
