Gospel: Luke 18:9-14

He also told this parable to some who trusted in themselves that they were righteous and regarded others with contempt: “Two men went up to the temple to pray, one a Pharisee and the other a tax collector. The Pharisee, standing by himself, was praying thus, ‘God, I thank you that I am not like other people: thieves, rogues, adulterers, or even like this tax collector. I fast twice a week; I give a tenth of all my income.’ But the tax collector, standing far off, would not even look up to heaven, but was beating his breast and saying, ‘God, be merciful to me, a sinner!’ I tell you, this man went down to his home justified rather than the other; for all who exalt themselves will be humbled, but all who humble themselves will be exalted.”

Please join us for worship this Weekend, Sunday, Oct 23, 2022

Collect from Sunday, Oct 16

Our Father,

Though You have given us the gift of redemption and life everlasting through the love and sacrifice of Your only Son, we are mindful that our presence here on earth is ephemeral, a dash between the beginning and end of our years. Help us, Lord, to make the most of leading a life with few regrets. Grant that we may cherish Thy love and mercy, living for the common good each and every day; surrendering to the faith and

service of fulfilling Thy Will. 

As we follow in the path laid forth by Jesus Christ, our Lord,Who lives and reigns with You and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and forever.


As you may know, York and Elizabeth Wong have been writing weekly Collects for St. Luke’s Episcopal Church since the beginning of the pandemic, in March 2020. We're reprinting them because they are worth re-reading.

Grant that we may share this harvest with those who come our way with

patience, compassion, and charity. For we aspire, as a child would with their

parent, to be closer to our loving Creator, in following in the footsteps of Jesus

Christ, our Lord, Who lives and reigns with You and the Holy Spirit, one God,

now and forever.

St. Luke's Episcopal Church History
