11the Sunday after Trinity

The Eleventh Sunday after Trinity
Announcements Below

O GOD, who declarest thy almighty power chiefly in showing mercy and pity; Mercifully grant unto us such a measure of thy grace, that we, running the way of thy commandments, may obtain thy gracious promises, and be made partakers of thy heavenly treasure; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

Source: Gelasius [492-496]. Orignially Cranmer translated it faithfully, but it was altered in the 1662 update by adding the phrase " running the way of thy commandments, may obtain ". This has been seen to diminish the emphasis on God's grace and shift it to obedience of the Law. The Collect's emphasis on Grace, compliments the story of the Pharisee and the Publican praying in today's Gospel story from Luke.  [Barbee and Zahl: The Collects of Thomas Cranmer]
