Blessed Whitsuntide – Ember Wednesday

Dear Brothers and Sisters,

The Summer Ember Days (also called Whit Embertide) arrived today..

V. O God, thou wentest forth before the people, journeying and dwelling with them, alleluia!   R. The earth shook and the heavens dropped, alleluia, alleluia!

Psalm Verse: Let God arise and let His enemies be scattered; let those who hate Him flee before Him.

Today is Ember Wednesday in Whitsun Week and the Church offers us offers us special prayers for this Day:

We beseech Thee, O Lord, that the Comforter who proceeds from Thee, may enlighten our minds and lead us into all truth, as Thy Son hath promised. Who livest and reignest with Thee,in the unity of the same Holy Spirit, ever one God, world without end. Amen.

and…

Grant, we beseech Thee, Almighty and merciful God: that the Holy Ghost descending on us may by His gracious indwelling render us a temple of glory.  Through Jesus Christ Thy Son, our Lord: Who liveth and reigneth with Thee, in the unity of the same Holy Ghost, ever one God, world without end. Amen.

Remember abstinence or fasting on these days.
Remember those about to be ordained.
Remember to thank the glorious Trinity for their abundant faithfulness to us.
Remember to pray for the harvest and fruitfulness in ministry.

Join us for a said communion Service this evening.

Whitsuntide blessings,

Fr. Wayne
