The Collect for today - Third Sunday after Easter:

Almighty God, you show the light of your truth to those who are in error so that they may return into the way of righteousness: grant to all who are admitted into the fellowship of Christ's religion that they may reject everything that is contrary to their profession and follow whatever is in agreement with it, through Jesus Christ our Lord.  Amen.

Please pray for...

the sick and the bereaved
