Resources for 18th Ordinary Sunday

Rich Fool

Let us pray (in silence) [that we may allow God to steer our lives]


Lord, [or O God]
may your ceaseless mercy
cleanse and defend your church,
and, since it cannot stand firm without you,
guide and govern it always by your goodness;
through Jesus Christ
who is alive with you,
in the unity of the Holy Spirit,
one God, now and for ever.

The above prayer is used by Roman Catholics and Episcopalians/Anglicans but (except for those RCs using the Extraordinary Form) on different days. It has a long, shared history which you can find here: Ordinary 18. The above is my rendering. Suggested improvements are welcome (please add them in the comments). I will consider adding this to my Book of Prayers in Common.

Some other celebrations this coming week:

Monday 1 August: Alphonsus Mary Liguori
Tuesday 2 August: Chad
Thursday 4 August: John Baptist Vianney
Saturday 6 August: The Transfiguration
[Sunday 7 August: John Mason Neale]
