Collect for the Second Sunday of Lent
   Almighty God,
   you show to those who are in error the light of your truth,
   that they may return to the way of righteousness:
   grant to all those who are admitted
   into the fellowship of Christ’s religion,
   that they may reject those things
   that are contrary to their profession,
   and follow all such things as are agreeable to the same;
   through our Lord Jesus Christ,
   who is alive and reigns with you,
   in the unity of the Holy Spirit,
   one God, now and for ever.
