So Dr. Leithart gave us the awesome assignment, for Liturgical Theology class, of writing a collect every single day of the term. Since there's enough days to do it, I've decided to write mine as one for each week of the Church calendar. Here are those for the first two Sundays of Advent.
O Almighty God, Who sent Thy Son into our darkness that we might come into Thy light, give us the eyes of faith, that we might see clearly in the twilight of this present age, until the Sun of Righteousness returns in glory; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who liveth and reigneth with Thee and with the Holy Ghost ever, one God, world without end. Amen.
O Lord Jesus Christ, Who at Thy first coming found your people an unfruitful vineyard, and trampled them in your wrath, grant that we may be faithful stewards of Your kingdom, that our work may be approved in that dread day of judgment when you return to reign; through Thy powerful name, at which every knee shall bow. Amen.
