Collect of the Day

Grant us, Almighty God, after the example of your holy servant Francis

To do what you would have us do,

And always desire what is pleasing in your sight,

That cleansed by your love,

Enlightened by your truth,

And kindled with the fire of your Holy Spirit,

We may follow in the footsteps of your beloved Son

And make our way to you, O God most High;

Through Jesus Christ our Lord,

Who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit,

One God, now and for ever.
Amen.

We Respond to God’s Word

Prayers of the People (Adapted from Susan Sayers)
God does everything possible for our spiritual growth and well-being, but still we can choose hostility and rejection.

Leader: Let us pray trustfully to the God who has loved us into being and cherished us all our life. Let us pray for St. Matthew’s, Ottawa, The Reverend Gregor Sneddon. For the chaplain to the Royal Canadian Mounted Police, The Reverend Canon Catherine Ascah. In our Companion Diocese, the Diocese of Jerusalem, we pray for St. Matthew’s Church, Zababdeh, West Bank.

For Arran, our priest and for all clergy and people and their ministries in the Diocese of Ottawa.

Agnus Dei from Communion Service in F by Herbert Sumsion              

The Communion

Anthem: All Things Bright and Beautiful by John Rutter

All things bright and beautiful, all creatures great and small,

All things wise and wonderful, the Lord God made them all.

Each little flower that opens, each little bird that sings,

He made their glowing colours, He made their tiny wings.

All things bright and beautiful, all creatures great and small,

All things wise and wonderful, the Lord God made them all.

The purple-headed mountain, the river running by,

The sunset and the morning, that brightens up the sky;

The cold wind in the winter, the pleasant summer sun,

The ripe fruits in the garden, He made them every one.

All things bright and beautiful, all creatures great and small,

All things wise and wonderful, the Lord God made them all.

He gave us eyes to see them, and lips that we might tell

How great is God Almighty, who has made all things well.

All things bright and beautiful, all creatures great and small,

All things wise and wonderful, the Lord God made them all.

Prayer after Communion

God of all goodness,

Who gave to your servant Francis

A will to be the servant of all,

Grant us in our service of your gospel

To hold back nothing of ourselves for ourselves,

That Christ may receive the whole of our lives

Into the habitations of light and glory;

Through the same Jesus Christ our Lord.              

Amen.
