The Way to life and peace

Discover the interconnection of pain and life.

Cross of nails and the Bible

Collect for Monday in Holy Week

Almighty God, whose most dear Son went not up to joy but first he suffered pain, and entered not into glory before he was crucified: Mercifully grant that we, walking in the way of the cross, may find it none other than the way of life and peace; through Jesus Christ your Son our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.

The Book of Common Prayer, 220

During Holy Week we will share the Collects to be used on each day—in the Daily Office and/or the Holy Eucharist. These collects encourage us to walk with Jesus in this Holy Week. These collects inspire and nurture our spirits in this Holy Week.

Beyond Holy Week, this Collect is one of the choices as a Collect for The Prayers (BCP, 97-98) in the Daily Office. ~Fr. Dan

Be well. Do good. Pay attention. Keep learning.
