Collects of the Day

The following prayers / collects were originally composed or chosen to go with the historic lectionary, a series of lessons that developed in the early church. It was a one-year series, that is, the same lessons would be read on the same Sundays, each year. For the historic lectionary on an interactive calendar, see www.sanctus.org.
