Angels and mortals

We wake to a new day and the Feast of St Michael and All Angels. Today we join the sisters for Lauds and the Eucharist before we have a final session, tying the ends together of our time here.

This is a very special place and it has been great for us. Yesterday evening we simply spent time together, talking, laughing, making friends. The angels were amongst us and the saints looking down on us.

I always love the Collect for today, the way in which it highlights our unity with the angels. May we know their presence today as we finish here and travel home.

Everlasting God,
you have ordained and constituted
the ministries of angels and mortals in a wonderful order:
grant that as your holy angels always serve you in heaven,
so, at your command,
they may help and defend us on earth;
through Jesus Christ your Son our Lord,
who is alive and reigns with you,
in the unity of the Holy Spirit,
one God, now and for ever.
Amen.
