The Second Sunday After Easteradmin | 8 May 2011
The collect for today, The Second Sunday After Easter, from The Book of Common Prayer (Canadian, 1962):
ALMIGHTY God, who hast given thine only Son to be unto us both a sacrifice for sin, and also an example of godly life: Give us grace that we may always most thankfully receive that his inestimable benefit, and also daily endeavour ourselves to follow the blessed steps of his most holy life; through the same Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
