|St. Michael by Guido Reni|
COLLECT FOR ST. MICHAEL'S AND ALL ANGELS
wonderful order the ministries of angels and mortals:
Mercifully grant that, as your holy angels always serve and
worship you in heaven, so by your appointment they may
help and defend us here on earth; through Jesus Christ our
Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one
God, for ever and ever. Amen.
...and in keeping with this collect, there are folks with the League of Women Voters outside St. Michael's and All Angels Episcopal Church today getting out voter registration information and pamphlets to decipher the eleven constitutional amendments on the ballot. This would be the work of "helping and defending" the voting rights of those of us on earth, especially the students attending the historically black college, Florida A&M, which is only a few blocks to the west of the church. Good work, folks!
