Moral decline has rendered the United States of America, a once vibrant nation to which all the world flocked (and still does even in her wretched condition) little more than a moral junkyard.

Collect For Epiphany 5 (Series A)

The Collect for the upcoming Sunday is a beauty: O Lord, keep your family the church continually in the true faith that, relying on the hope of your heavenly grace, we may ever be defended by your mighty power " Take each element of it into consideration and meditate on it for a few moments.
