The Ancient…new again Pt:2

A Collect for Purity

Latin composition

  • Deus, cui omne cor patet et omnis uoluntas loquitur, et quem nullam latet secretum: purifica per infusionem sancti spiritus cogitationes cordis nostri, ut perfecte te diligere et digne laudare mereamur, per dominum nostrum iesum christum. Amen.


English translation

  • Almighty God, to you all hearts are open, all desires known and from you no secrets are hid: cleanse the thoughts of our hearts by the inspiration of your Holy Spirit, that we may perfectly love you and worthily magnify your holy name, through Christ our Lord, Amen

  1. Thanks for the Ancient posts. The collect for purity is one of my favorite collects. One of the things I love about the Episcopal Liturgy is it is so “meaty” and reverant.

  2. Yes it is one of the things i also love. I am no longer in the ECUSA…I’m now in the charismatic episcopal church. which isnt associated with the ECUSA…and i have no clue why it even has episcopal in the name. lol…
    Anyway…our denomination belives in the three streams ..sacramental (communion and liturgy) evangelical (bible based preaching and founded on the word, and charismatic (vibrant worship)

  3. I will check out your church sites for sure.

    We are waiting to see what final stance our diocese takes later this summer. (Whole other can of worms there…) Our rector has told me that he will align with the Anglican Communion if we split. I will ask him about the ICCEC though. Thanks for your input.
