Collect One

Almighty and merciful God,
of whose only gift it cometh

through the merits of Jesus Christ our Lord.

Collect Two

Almighty God,
who called your Church to bear witness
that you were in Christ reconciling the world to yourself:

and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit,
one God, now and for ever.
