An Order of Penitents April 1, 2009Posted by Ted Witham in : News , add a comment
The Third Order marks the Friday before Palm Sunday as The Day of Penitence. On this day, Tertiaries meet to remind ourselves that St Francis founded the Third Order as an order of penitents, that is, people who take their Christian faith seriously.
We ask God to continue to forgive and heal us as we prepare to remember God’s love for us as shown by Jesus on the Cross.
Many Tertiaries will pray this Collect on the Day of Penitence:
Lord our God,
grant us grace to desire you with our whole heart;
that so desiring, we may seek and find you;
that so finding, may love you;
and so loving, may hate those sins
from which you have delivered us;
through Jesus Christ our Lord.
May you find a blessing on your journey.
