It’s Monday in Holy Week in the Church Calendar. April 3, 2023.
This week we are following the Daily Office lectionary with an episode Monday through Friday.
Praying today for Gregor in the Netherlands.
Our general order and lectionary comes from the Book of Common Prayer Daily Office. We’ll sing “Hosanna” by Brooke Ligertwood. We’ll read Psalm 36:5-11 followed by the Gloria Patri. Our Gospel reading is John 12:1-11 . We’ll say the Apostles’ Creed, the Lord’s Prayer, and the Collect of the Day. We’ll then have a time of prompted prayer.
Collect of the Day – Monday in Holy Week, Rite Two – 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.
