Readings and Sermon for Third Sunday in Lent

“If we are to fullfill the Gospel ourselves, we have some witnessing, some cleansing, and some extra work of our own to do, in this life.” Joan Chittister

Collect: Third Sunday in Lent

Almighty God, you know that we have no power in ourselves to help ourselves:  Keep us both outwardly in our bodies and inwardly in our souls, that we may be defended from all adversities which may happen to the body, and from all evil thoughts which may assault and hurt the soul; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, forever and ever. Amen
