The One, True King and the Kingdom

Old Testament Jeremiah 23:1-6 Psalm Psalm 46 Epistle Colossians 1:11-20 Gospel Luke 23:33-43 "Come now and look upon the works of the Lord, what awesome things he has done on earth." (Ps 46:9) In the Name of God: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. Amen Today is the last day of the liturgical year, and it culminates with Christ as King.

For All the Saints

Old Testament Daniel 7:1-3, 15-18 Psalm Psalm 149 Epistle Ephesians 1:11-23 Gospel Luke 6:20-31 “I sing a song of the saints of God, patient and brave and true ... and I mean, God helping, to be one too.” In the Name of God: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
