The Way to the Cross – First Sunday of Lent

Sunday 18th February is the First Sunday of Lent. Today you’re invited to read the four scriptures appointed for Eucharist on this day from the Revised Common Lectionary: Genesis 9:8-17, Psalm 25:1-10, 1 Peter 3:18-22 and Mark 1:9-15.

The Collect for today is:

Almighty God, whose Son fasted forty days in the wilderness, and was tempted as we are but did not sin, give us grace to discipline ourselves in submission to your Spirit, that as you know our weakness so we may know your power to save; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever. Amen.
