Sunday, March 22, 2015THE FIFTH SUNDAY IN LENT
The Gospel reading on this Fifth Sunday in Lent for Year B is John 12:20-33, wherein we have Christ telling his disciples that the hour has come, saying: Now is the judgment of this world: now shall the prince of this world be cast out. And I, if I be lifted up from the earth, will draw all men unto me.
O Almighty God, who alone canst order the unruly wills and affections of sinful men: Grant unto thy people that they may love the thing which thou commandest, and desire that which thou dost promise; that so, among the sundry and manifold changes of the world, our hearts may surely there be fixed where true joys are to be found; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who liveth and reigneth with thee and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever. Amen.
