The Fourth Sunday after the Epiphany
by: Rev. Gerhard Grabenhofer
Collect of the Day:
Almighty God, You know we live in the midst of so many dangers that in our frailty we cannot stand upright. Grant strength and protection to support us in all dangers and carry us through all temptations; through Jesus Christ, Your Son, our Lord, who lives and reigns with You and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and forever. Amen.
Psalm 107:1, 8, 24-25 (antiphon: Ps. 107:28-29) — Oh give thanks to the Lord, for he is good, for his steadfast love endures forever!
96 (antiphon: v. 2) — God is to be praised for His greatness by His Church and all creation
Old Testament Reading:
Jonah 1:1-17 — Jonah flees from the Lord and in the midst of a great storm is thrown into the sea and swallowed by a great fish
Psalm 102:15-16 — The Gentiles, too, will fear the Lord and be brought into His Church!
Romans 8:18-23 — Together with us, creation awaits our final redemption
