Collect of the Day

God made known in human frailty;

Your Chosen One walked through fields

Where bitterness flourished and mercy was enclosed:

Break through our conspiracies of power

And teach us what it means to save and honour life;

Through Jesus Christ, Lord of the Sabbath. Amen.

God of all creation,
all you have made is good,
and your love endures forever.

Anthem: Locus Iste by Anton Bruckner

Locus iste a Deo factus est, inaestimabile sacramentum, irreprehensibilis est.

This place was made by God, a priceless sacrament; it is without reproach

We give you thanks, almighty God,
that you have refreshed us
through the healing power of this gift of life.
In your mercy, strengthen us through this gift,
in faith toward you and in fervent love toward one another;
for the sake of Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
