Theme of the Day
What God does to get us to love.

Collect of the Day
Two options are available. In the first, petitions are offered that Christ's commandment to love one another be written on our hearts and we be given the will to serve others. Sanctification as exhorted is here emphasized. The second alternative, after referring to Christ establishing a new covenant in the Lord's Supper and showing us the dignity of service, petitions are offered that God grants by the Holy Spirit and the aforementioned signs refresh us and speak to our hearts. This alternative emphasizes the Sacraments and the Holy Spirit.
