Collect for Wednesday in Holy Week
Lord God, whose blessed Son our Savior gave his body to be whipped and his face to be spit upon: Give us grace to accept joyfully the sufferings of the present time, confident of the glory that shall be revealed; 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
This Collect interrogates me: just how confident am I about “the glory that shall be revealed”? Am I confident enough to “accept joyfully the sufferings of the present time”? Day by day speaks the answer. May we all accept and use the graces given in to us to bring others to know the love we have experienced. ~Fr. Dan
Be well. Do good. Pay attention. Keep learning.
