Collect - Third Sunday before Lent
 Almighty God, who alone can bring order to the unruly wills and passions of sinful humanity; give your people grace so to live what you command and to desire what you promise that, among the many changes of this world, our hearts may surely there be fixed where true joys are to be found, through Jesus Christ your Son our Lord, who is alive and reigns with you, in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever.  Amen.
