TSSF Community Obedience

Fri 20 Jul 2018

In all provinces of the Third Order this offering of prayer should be made daily, either on its own or in the context of Morning or Evening Prayer

We adore you, most holy, Lord Jesus Christ
here and in all your churches throughout the world,
and we bless you, because by your holy Cross,
you have redeemed the world.

The daily reading from the Principles for day 20

The Third Way of Service (continued)

Tertiaries endeavour to serve others in active work. We try to find expression for each of the three aims of the Order in our lives, and whenever possible actively help others who are engaged in similar work. The chief form of service that we have to offer is to reflect the love of Christ, who, in his beauty and power, is the inspiration and joy of our lives.

O God, we give you thanks
for the Third Order of the Society of St Francis.
Grant, we pray, that being knit together
in community and prayer,
we your servants may glorify your holy name
after the example of St Francis, and win others to your love;
through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

The Collect for Friday

Lord Jesus, in your servant Francis
you displayed the wonderful power of the cross:
help us always to follow you in the way of the cross,
and give us strength to resist all temptation,
and to you, Lord, with the Father and the Holy Spirit
be all glory for ever. Amen.

The offering of prayer may continue with either Morning or Evening Prayer or conclude with either of the following:

May our Blessed Lady pray for us;
May St Francis pray for us;
May St Clare pray for us;
May all the Saints of the Third Order pray for us;
May the holy angels watch over us and befriend us;
May our Lord Jesus give us his blessing and his peace. Amen.

The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, the love of God,
and the fellowship of the Holy Spirit
be with us evermore. Amen.
