I can’t believe I finally found a feast day that has been omitted from Holy Women, Holy Men. I’m not on the SCLM (which is a blessing for everyone), but here is my humble offering for today. There’s still time to use these for the evening office or Eucharist. As these are proposed trial propers, your feedback is welcome.
Celebration for all people, 1966
Almighty God, in whom we findest our strength: we beseechest thee to embolden us, thy servants, in all our feats; prevent us that we might utter thy truth in love when we art aggrieved, and empower us to spread abroad this holy day, Festivus, for the rest of us; through Jesus Christ, our fortress and our Way of Truth. Amen.
Almighty God, in whom we find our strength: embolden us in all our feats; teach us to speak the truth in love when we are aggrieved, and celebrate this holy day, Festivus, for the rest of us; through Jesus Christ, our strength and our Way of Truth. Amen.
or Psalm 105:23-36
