O GOD, the protector of all that trust in thee, without whom nothing is strong, nothing is holy: Increase and multiply upon us thy mercy; that, thou being our ruler and guide, we may so pass through things temporal, that we finally lose not the things eternal. Grant this, O heavenly Father, for Jesus Christ’s sake our Lord. Amen.

READINGS: Romans 8.18 and St. Luke 6.36

Curate’s Corner
In the last sermon he ever preached, C. S. Lewis reflected on the collect for this week (see above). He mentions a slip of the tongue he made while praying, when he asked, reversing the two most important words, “that … we may so pass through things eternal, that we finally lose not the things temporal.” Lewis notes that this is the great and ongoing temptation of the Christian life. We are tempted, day after day, to live as though our faith is just one of the many things we do. But, as Lewis says, “it is not so much of our time and so much of our attention that God demands; it is not even all our time and all our attention; it is ourselves.”

So what does it mean to so pass through things temporal that we are turned toward the things eternal? What does it mean to live in such a way that the things we do reflect who we are? Because who we are is pretty amazing. We are the children of God, destined for glory.

I look forward to seeing you on Sunday and to reflecting with you on this great and life-changing mystery.
