Personal and Family Worship for the Twentieth Sunday after Trinity | 10/25/2020



Reflection on the Word in our Worship


1 Blessed is the man who has not walked in the counsel of the ungodly, *

nor stood in the way of sinners,

and has not sat in the seat of the scornful;

2 But his delight is in the law of the Lord, *

and on his law will he meditate day and night.

-Psalm 1:1-2

Why, you say, does the prophet single out only man and proclaim him happy? Does he not exclude women from happiness? By no means. For the virtue of man and woman is the same, since creation is equally honored in both; therefore, there is the same reward for both. Listen to Genesis: “God created humankind,” it says, “In the image of God he created him. Male and female he created them.” They whose nature is alike have the same reward. - St. Basil the Great, Homilies on the Psalms

The Collect of the Day


Almighty and everlasting God, you govern all things both in heaven and on earth: Mercifully hear the supplications of your people, and in our time grant us your peace; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.

Psalm 1


1 Blessed is the man who has not walked in the counsel of the ungodly, *

nor stood in the way of sinners, and has not sat in the seat of the scornful;

2 But his delight is in the law of the Lord, *

and on his law will he meditate day and night.

3 And he shall be like a tree planted by the waterside, *

that will bring forth his fruit in due season.

4 His leaf also shall not wither; *

and look, whatever he does, it shall prosper.

5 As for the ungodly, it is not so with them; *

but they are like the chaff, which the wind scatters away from the face of the earth.

6 Therefore the ungodly shall not be able to stand in the judgment, *

neither the sinners in the congregation of the righteous.

7 For the Lord knows the way of the righteous, *

but the way of the ungodly shall perish.


(from the New Coverdale Psalter as found in the 2019 Book of Common Prayer)
