A Collect of Thanks for Christ’s Compassion

Light of the world, rejected by those you came to save, we are abundantly grateful for your compassion to us who have so often spurned your love and turned from your invitations. Give us courage to look into your glory, though it may hurt our eyes at first, that we might be filled with the Father’s grace and truth through your Holy Spirit. Amen. ‘And the Word became flesh and lived among us, and we have seen his glory, the glory as of a father’s only son, full of grace and truth.’ – John 1:14
