The Second Sunday after Christmas
by: Rev. Derrick C. Brown
Collect of the Day:
Lord God, heavenly Father, You sent Your dear Son, Jesus Christ, to become a stranger and a sojourner in Egypt for our sakes, and led Him safely home. Mercifully grant that we poor sinners, who are strangers and sojourners in this perilous world, may soon be called to our true home, the kingdom of heaven, where we shall live in eternal joy and glory; through the same Jesus Christ, Your Son, our Lord, who lives and reigns with You and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and forever. Amen.
Psalm 8:1, 4–6 (antiphon: Psalm 8:2) — Out of the mouth of babies and infants, the Lord’s strength against His foes is known
Psalm 77:11–20 (antiphon: v. 13) — The Lord has made known His might
Old Testament Reading:
Genesis 46:1–7 — Israel is instructed to sojourn in Egypt
Psalm 106:47, Is. 63:16b — The Lord is our Redeemer
1 Peter 4:12–19 — Rejoice in sharing Christ’s sufferings, eagerly awaiting His glorious appearing
Pslam 145:21 — My mouth will speak the praise of the Lord, and let all flesh bless his holy name forever and ever.
