The Twenty-fourth Sunday after Trinity


The Twenty-fourth Sunday after Trinity

O LORD, we beseech thee, absolve thy people from their offences; that through thy bountiful goodness we may all be delivered from the bands of those sins, which by our frailty we have committed. Grant this, O heavenly Father, for the sake of Jesus Christ, our blessed Lord and Saviour. Amen.

Source: Sacramentary of Bishop Leo of Rome [461] and of Gregory. Said the Sunday week before the penitential season of Advent, it begs God for absolution. Today's Gospel echos this theme as the woman was released from her bands of infirmity through faith [Barbee and Zahl] Note. normally "Sunday week before". This is a long year and well have several more Sundays before advent.

Malachi iii. 13, Psalm 66, Colossians i. 3   &  St. Matthew ix. 18

Daughter, be of good comfort; thy faith hath made thee whole
