Verse of the Day
I am the Alpha and the Omega, the first and the last, the beginning and the end."
Voice of the Day
They watch for Christ
who are sensitive, eager, apprehensive in mind,
who are awake, alive, quick-sighted,
zealous in honoring him,
who look for him in all that happens, and
who would not be surprised,
who would not be over-agitated or overwhelmed,
if they found that he is coming at once.
This then is to watch:
to desire his second coming, from our affectionate
and grateful remembrance of his first.
John Henry Newman
Prayer of the Day
God of majesty and power,
Hasten the advent of that day
when the weapons of war shall be banished,
our deeds of darkness cast off,
and all your scattered children gathered into one.
We ask this through him whose coming is certain,
whose day draws near: your Son, our Lord Jesus Christ.
