Two months to go

The Collect for the 26th Sunday in Ordinary Time:  
Father, you show your almighty power,
in your mercy and forgiveness. 
Continue to fill us with your gifts of love. 
Help us to hurry toward the eternal life you promise
and come to share in the joys of your kingdom. 
And from next year:  
O God, who manifest your almighty power
above all by pardoning and showing mercy,
bestow, we pray, your grace abundantly upon us
and make those hastening to attain your promises
heirs to the treasures of heaven.
