Twenty-Ninth Sunday of the Year (Trinity 20)

Jesus said, 'For the Son of Man did not come to be served but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many.'

Collect for the Twentieth Sunday after Trinity

O Almighty and most merciful God: of thy bountiful goodness keep us, we beseech thee, from all things that may hurt us; that we, being ready both in body and soul, may cheerfully accomplish those things which thou commandest; through Jesus Christ our Lord.  Amen. (Book of Common Prayer)
