It’s still Christmas!
It’s the feast of St. John the Apostle!
I love this one because it means it’s also my Jon’s feast day and it’s all about friends. Even Jesus had a good best friend. What a great example that is to all of us; how important close friends are to us all!
Collect: O God, who through the blessed Apostle John have unlocked for us the secrets of your Word, grant, we pray, that we may grasp with proper understanding what he has so marvelously brought to our ears. Through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son, who lives and reigns with you in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever.
