Celebrating the life and faith of Mary, Mother of Jesus in the Church Calendar. August 15, 2023.
Praying again today for the island of Maui in the state of Hawaii.
Our general order and lectionary comes from the Book of Common Prayer Daily Office. We’ll sing a song I wrote called “The Sound and the Stirring” and we’ll include a prayer of confession. We’ll read Psalms 113 and 115 followed by the Gloria Patri. Our Scripture lesson is John 2:1-12 . 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.

Saint Mary the Virgin – O God, you have taken to yourself the blessed Virgin Mary, mother of your incarnate Son: Grant that we, who have been redeemed by his blood, may share with her the glory of your eternal kingdom; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you, in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever. Amen.
