Second Sunday in Lent


Introit                                                                                                                                                  Ps. 74:1-3; antiphon: Ps. 69:9


For zeal for your house has con- | sumed me,*
  and the reproaches of those who reproach you have fall- | en on me.
O God, why do you cast us off for- | ever?*
  Why does your anger smoke against the sheep of your | pasture?
Remember your congregation, which you have purchased of old, which you have redeemed to be the tribe of your | heritage!*
  Remember Mount Zion, where | you have dwelt.
Direct your steps to the perpetual | ruins;*
  the enemy has destroyed everything in the sanctu- | ary!
Glory be to the Father and | to the Son*
  and to the Holy | Spirit;
as it was in the be- | ginning,*
  is now, and will be forever. | Amen.

For zeal for your house has con- | sumed me,*
  and the reproaches of those who reproach you have fall- | en on me.


Collect of the Day

  O God, You see that of ourselves we have no strength. By Your mighty power defend us from all adversities that may happen to the body and from all evil thoughts that may assault and hurt the soul; through Jesus Christ, Your Son, our Lord, who lives and reigns with You and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and forever.
