Resources for the Sixth Sunday of Easter


Let us pray (in silence) [that we grow into Christ’s new life]


O God,
from whom all good things come,
grant that,
by your inspiration,
we may discern what is right,
and by your merciful guiding may do it;
through Jesus Christ
who is alive with you,
in the unity of the Holy Spirit,
one God, now and for ever.

The above is my reworking for my Book of Prayers in Common in which I seek to provide a set of collects with history and commentary.

Christians have been praying the above prayer on the equivalent of the Sixth Sunday in the Great Season of Easter for over 12 centuries – shared through the Reformation into the Roman Missal and Books of Common Prayer. Then, after Vatican II, it was moved to the rarely-celebrated 10th Sunday in Ordinary Time, a Sunday that is normally eclipsed by the Easter Cycle and we won’t meet again until 2035.

For commentary, including how this engages with the surrounding Platonic and Aristotelian thought, as well as its connection with this coming Sunday as “Rogation Sunday” read further at: Sixth Sunday of Easter.
