Let us pray (in silence) [that through this week we may share in Christ’s dying and rising]
Almighty everliving God, [or God of transcendence]
as an example of humility for the human race,
you sent our saviour to become incarnate
and to submit to the cross,
grant us the grace to learn from this patient suffering
and so to share in the resurrection;
through Jesus Christ
who is alive with you,
in the unity of the Holy Spirit,
one God, now and for ever.
This is the shared, ancient collect. Its history with a reflection is found here: Collect for Palm Sunday – Passion Sunday.
Remember, this coming Sunday (20 March 2016) is Passion Sunday with the Liturgy of the Palms. This is the Sunday we read the Passion.
