The Third Sunday in Lent
Celebrant: Bless the Lord who forgiveth all our sins.
People: His mercy endureth for ever.
Heavenly Father, who hast made us for thine own self, wherefore our hearts are restless until they rest in thee: Look with compassion upon the heartfelt desires of thy servants, and purify our disordered affections, that we may behold thine eternal glory in the face of Jesus Christ thy Son our Lord, who liveth and reigneth with thee, in the unity of the Holy Ghost, ever one God, world without end. Amen.

Who dost bid thy faithful people cleanse their hearts, and prepare with joy for the Paschal feast; that, fervent in prayer and in works of mercy, and renewed by thy Word and Sacraments, they may come to the fullness of grace which thou hast prepared for those who love thee.
