A Collect for Peace

O God, the author of peace and lover of concord, to know you is eternal life and to serve you is  perfect freedom: Defend us, you humble servants, in all assaults of our enemies; that we, surely trusting in your defense, may not fear the power of any adversaries; through the might of Jesus Christ our Lord.

Also from the Presiding Bishop...

Tonight we remember the night that Jesus told his disciples, "I give you a new commandment, that you love one another. Just as I have loved you, you also should love one another. By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you have love for one another."
In a world that is too often full of cruelty and anger, I invite you tonight and in the coming days to participate in the love that Jesus has for us all by visiting and worshipping with your local Episcopal Church. You can check to find your closest congregation; learn more about services and watch livestreams of one parish's walk through Holy Week here:
