The Collect at Mass yesterday rather simply and effectively covered a number of the themes in the readings of the day
O God, who in the abasement of your Son
have raised up a fallen world,
fill your faithful with holy joy,
for on those you have rescued from slavery to sin
you bestow eternal gladness.
Through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son,
who lives and reigns with you in the unity of the Holy Spirit,
one God, for ever and ever.
Abasement, humiliation, rejection; the mission to save and restore to life; the promise of love and happiness.
- What particular reading, or part of a reading struck you yesterday?
