Worth Quoting – The Lord’s Day

February 19, 2014 § Leave a comment

“The Lord’s Day is a Christian mystery or, if one prefers, an expression of the one Christian Paschal Mystery. In the full observance of the First Day of the week, we are not only taught the doctrines of creation, redemption, and sanctification, we not only remember them, but we enter into them, or reenter them. We ourselves experience admission to a renewed creation, as a resurrected people in Christ, by the power of the Holy Spirit, in communion of saints, in the foretaste of heaven, as citizens of that blessed country where the river of life flows forever and God wipes away the tears from every eye.” – H.B. Porter, The Day of Light,┬áThe Biblical & Liturgical Meaning of Sunday

O Almighty God, who alone canst order the unruly wills and affections of sinful men: Grant unto thy people that they may love the thing which thou commandest, and desire that which thou dost promise; that so, among the sundry and manifold changes of the world, our hearts may surely there be fixed where true joys are to be found; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who liveth and reigneth with thee and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever. Amen

“By claiming the First Day as their own Christians declare themselves as children of the Father of lights and fellow-heirs with Jesus Christ, a people whom he has delivered from the darkness of sin, falsehood, and death. Forsaking the ignorance of the Gentiles and the blindness of the earthly Israel, they have entered that new Kingdom resting on the everlasting foundations which is ruled by the new law of the Spirit of Life and into which Christ seeks to draw all men.” – The Day of Light: The Biblical & Liturgical Meaning of Sunday, Chapter 3, Page 25, Summary.
