7th Sunday, Current and Forthcoming


Father, keep before us the wisdom and love
you have revealed in your Son.
Help us to be like him
in word and deed.

Grant, we pray, almighty God,
that, always pondering spiritual things,
we may carry out in both word and deed
that which is pleasing to you.

(This week, the comparison is taken from Fr. Z, who provides a long discussion)


Almighty God, help us to live the example of love
we celebrate in this Eucharist,
that we come to its fulfillment in your presence.

Grant, we pray, almighty God,
that we may experience the effects of the salvation
which is pledged to us by these mysteries.

  1. Thank you for this series of direct comparisons, Jeffrey. They make effective points about meaning and poetry, and they are greatly heartening.
