Resources for 29th Ordinary Sunday

Old Woman Praying
Aert de Gelder (1645-1727) – Old Woman Praying c 1700

Let us pray (in silence) [that God may continue to guide and gather us]


Almighty and everlasting God,
in Christ you have revealed your glory among the nations: Preserve the works of your mercy,
that your Church throughout the world
may persevere with steadfast faith
in the confession of your Name;
through Jesus Christ our Lord,
who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit,
one God, for ever and ever.


Let us pray (in silence) [that the God who entices us may also enable us to be transformed]


Almighty and everliving God,
conform our wills freely to yours,
and direct our hearts
to share your glory by our undivided service;
through Jesus Christ
who is alive with you,
in the unity of the Holy Spirit,
one God, now and for ever.

I am in a quandary. Two collects vie for this coming week’s shared-ancient-collects spot. The first (first, above) is from TEC’s Book of Common Prayer (p.235) – an ancient, shared prayer – the commentary is here. The second ( directly above) is the Roman Catholic collect assigned for this Sunday. Again it has an ancient, shared history – the commentary is here.

In time (you may have an opinion that would help me) I will put one, for this Sunday, into my Book of Prayers in Common.

Some other celebrations this coming week:

Monday 17 October: Ignatius of Antioch
Tuesday 18 October: Luke
Wednesday 19 October: Tarore of Waharoa; Isaac Jogues, John de Brebeuf & companions; Paul of the Cross
Thursday 20 October: Henry Martyn
Saturday 22 October: John Paul II
