The Church: that wonderful and sacred mystery
After reading Morning Prayer this morning and writing in my journal, I was reminded of this prayer, which proclaims the "wonderful and sacred mystery" that is the Church.
Blessings on this fine day!
~The Rev. Peter M. Carey
O God of unchangeable power and eternal light: Look favorably on your whole Church, that wonderful and sacred mystery; by the effectual working of your providence, carry out in tranquillity the plan of salvation; let the whole world see and knkow that things which were cast down are being raised up, and things which had grown old are being made new, and that all things are being brought to their perfection by him through whom all things were made, your Son Jesus Christ our Lord; who lives and reigns with you, in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever.
