Collect of the Day

Lord Jesus Christ,
crucified for us,
we kneel at the foot of your cross to watch with you.
Help us to see the cost of our forgiveness
so that we may be made new through your love;
for the glory of your holy name.
Amen.

You will have heard me engaging the deep and nagging emotions that accompany an awakening to the frailty of being human. Perhaps, rather than looking at the unfold drama of the week and saying “look what they did!”, you may have been moved to murmur, “look what we have done!”
