20th Sunday After Pentecost

Ahhh, beautiful day, beautiful Collect.

This is it using the Farnborough Diurnal translation:

Grant unto Thy faithful people pardon and peace, we beseech Thee, merciful Lord, that they may be both cleansed from all their sins and serve Thee with a quiet mind. Through our Lord.
 And in the Latin:

Largire, quaesumus, Domine, fidelibus tuis indulgentiam placatus et pacem: ut pariter ab omnibus mundentur offensis, et secura tibi mente deserviant.  Per Dominum nostrum.

There can be no greater blessing than having a quiet mind with which to serve God. And right now, of all times, I really do not deserve this greatest of gifts...
