COLLECT

Almighty God, you show to those who are in error the light of your truth, that they may return to the way of 
righteousness:  grant to all those who are admitted into the fellowship of Christ's religion, that they may reject 
those things that are contrary to their profession, and follow all such things as are agreeable to the same;  
through our Lord Jesus Christ, who is alive and reigns with you, in the unity of the Holy one God, now and for ever. 

AMEN
