This Week at St Timothy's
Set us free, O God, from the bondage of our sins, and give us the liberty of that abundant life which you have made known to us in your Son our Savior Jesus Christ; who lives and reigns with you, in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever. Amen.

Words defined:

Intention: In the Holy Eucharist we receive remission of our sins and "all other benefits of his passion." In the celebration of the Eucharist, we apply those benefits to a particular intention. You can see examples of masses for particular intentions on pages 199-210 in the Prayer Book. 17th century Anglican divine Jeremy Taylor wrote, " "It follows then that the celebration of this sacrifice be, in its proportion, an instrument of applying the proper sacrifice to all the purposes for which it was first designed. It is ministerially, and by application, an instrument propitiatory; it is eucharistical; it is an hommage and an act of adoration, and it is impetratory, and obtains for us and for the whole church, all the benefits of the sacrifice, which is now celebrated and applied; that is, as this rite is the remembrance and ministerial celebration of Christ's sacrifice, so it is destined to do honour to God... to beg pardon, blessings, and supply of all our needs" (Discourse XlX, 4).

This Sunday as we celebrate the the last Sunday after the Epiphany, we will sing the hymn "Songs of thankfulness and praise," which we sang on the first Sunday after the Epiphany. This hymn references several of the Gospels lessons that we heard throughout Epiphanytide. From the Psalter Hymnal Handbook:

Christopher Wordsworth, nephew of poet William Wordsworth, wrote "Songs of thankfulness and praise" and described the text as follows:
It is a "recapitulation of the successive manifestations of Christ; and anticipation of that future great and glorious Epiphany, at which Christ will be manifest to all, when he will appear again to judge the world."

The text teaches the meaning of Epiphany - the manifestation of Christ in his birth (stanza 1), baptism, miracle at Cana (stanza 2), healing of the sick, power over evil, and coming as judge (stanza 3)." Stanza 4, added later by F. Bland Tucker, refers to Christ's manifestation in his transfiguration on the mountain and looks ahead to his death and resurrection. While many of our hymns are prayers and songs of praise, this him is certainly a hymn that teaches us and reminds us who Jesus was and what he did as a man on earth.

The Children and Youth choirs will lead our 9am mass and will sing "The Heavens Declare the Glory of God" by James Brighton, "Alleluia," a round by William Boyce, and "We are Marching in the Light of God" (Siyahamba), a South African song.
