Jesus Saying for the Week:

When Jesus therefore saw his mother, and the disciple standing by, whom he loved, he saith unto his mother, Woman, behold thy son! Then saith he to the disciple, Behold thy mother! And from that hour that disciple took her unto his own home.

Collect for the Week

Amen


Collect for Peace

O God, who art the author of peace and lover of concord,

in knowledge of whom standeth our eternal life,

that we, surely trusting in thy defence,

may not fear the power of any adversaries;

through the might of Jesus Christ our Lord.

Amen
