Monday April 7 :: Not A Little Comforted

On the first day of the week, when we were gathered together to break bread, Paul talked with them, intending to depart on the next day, and he prolonged his speech until midnight. There were many lamps in the upper room where we were gathered.  And a young man named Eutychus, sitting at the window, sank into a deep sleep as Paul talked still longer. And being overcome by sleep, he fell down from the third story and was taken up dead. But Paul went down and bent over him, and taking him in his arms, said, “Do not be alarmed, for his life is in him.” And when Paul had gone up and had broken bread and eaten, he conversed with them a long while, until daybreak, and so departed. And they took the youth away alive, and were not a little comforted.

Lit Window, Patrick Caulfield (1969, British)

Be gracious to Your people,
we entreat You, O Lord, that they,
repenting day by day of the things that displease You,
may be more and more filled
with love of You and of Your commandments;
and, being supported by Your grace in this life,
may come to the full enjoyment of eternal life
in Your everlasting kingdom;
through Jesus Christ our Lord,
who lives and reigns with You and the Holy Spirit,
one God, for ever and ever. Amen.

The Book of Common Prayer
