Celebrating Basil the Great, Bishop of Caesarea, 379, in the Church Calendar. June 14, 2023.
This week we are following the Daily Office lectionary with an episode Monday through Friday.
Our general order and lectionary comes from the Book of Common Prayer Daily Office. We’ll sing “Song of Freedom” by me with a prayer of confession. We’ll read Psalm 139:1-9 followed by the Gloria Patri. Our Scripture lesson is 1 Corinthians 2:6-13 . 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.
Basil the Great, Bishop of Caesarea, 379 – Almighty God, you have revealed to your Church your eternal Being of glorious majesty and perfect love as one God in Trinity of Persons: Give us grace that, like your bishop Basil of Caesarea, we may continue steadfast in the confession of this faith, and constant in our worship of you, Father, Son, and Holy Spirit; for you live and reign for ever and ever. Amen.
