The old Sequence for the Day (Magdeburg, 1613):
O Holy Christ, Teacher of the Apostles, Firstborn over all creation, Ruler of Your Kingdom, govern Your Church’s behavior and life. You first called the rude fishermen and they brought all the world together before your royal throne. They vanquished the tyranny of Satan and sin not with carnal weapons, but by the ministry of Your Word, which is none other than the sublime and worthy office of Peter, Paul, Matthew, Thomas, Bartholomew, John, Philip, Simon and also James, Andrew, and Thaddeus, famous warriors of God! From east to west and throughout the whole world, they are fathers of joy in the teaching of the faith, therefore grant us to abide in the same teaching, we pray you, O Christ!
Divine Service this evening: 6 p.m.
