The Collect and Lesson for the Sunday before Lent.
Lord, you have taught us that whatever we do without love is worth nothing send your Holy Spirit and pour into our hearts that most excellent gift of love, the true bond of peace and all virtues; for without love whoever lives is reckoned dead by you. Grant this for the sake of your only Son, Jesus Christ ourLord. Amen.
