Revised Liturgy: Collect for St. John the Evangelist’s Day

Posted in Worship at 11:22 by Trey Austin

The note explaining the celebration of St. John the Evangelist’s Day is as follows in the liturgy:

[The Festival of St. John is celebrated on the second day after Christmas, because he was the bosom friend of Jesus, and has most fully unfolded the mystery of the Word made flesh for our salvation.]

Shine graciously upon Thy Church, we beseech Thee, O Lord; that being enlightened by the doctrine and filled with the mind of Thy blessed Apostle and Evangelist, Saint John, whom Jesus loved, it may come at last into Thy beatific presence and enjoy the rewards of everlasting life; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who liveth and reigneth with Thee and the Holy Ghost, ever one God, world without end. Amen.
