THE SEVENTEENTH SUNDAY AFTER PENTECOST

September 19, 2021


According to this week's Gospel lesson (Mark 9:30-37) Jesus and his disciples continue their journey, passing quietly through Galilee.Jesus didn't want the crowds following because he was teaching his disciples about the trials that were to come. But they did not understand him.


When they get to Capernaum and the safe house there, he asks the disciples, "What were you arguing about on the way?” They were silent because they were arguing about who was the greatest among them. Jesus responds in a very famous passage Find out what he says and why he calls the little child among them. Click below for the rest of the lesson and the others appointed for this day:

SAINT MATTHEW, APOSTLE & EVANGELIST - September 21, 2021


We thank you, heavenly Father, for the witness of your apostle and evangelist Matthew to the Gospel of your Son our Savior; and we pray that, after his example, we may with ready wills and hearts obey the calling of our Lord to follow him; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever. Amen.-- Collect of the Day, The Book of Common Prayer

A PRAYER FOR  HEALING


The Almighty Lord, who is a strong tower to all who put their trust in him,
to whom all things in heaven, on earth, and under the earth bow and obey:

Be now and evermore your defense, and make you know and feel that
the only Name under heaven  given for health and salvation is
the Name of our Lord Jesus Christ. Amen. (The Book of Common Prayer, 1979)
