Saint Bartholomew

Today the holy Church commemorates the apostle of our Lord, St. Bartholomew (who is also called Nathanael).

Readings: Proverbs 3:1-8 / 2 Cor. 4:7-10 / Luke 22:24-30 or John 1:43-51

Almighty God, Your Son, Jesus Christ, chose Bartholomew to be an apostle to preach the blessed Gospel. Grant that Your Church may love what he believed and preach what he taught; through Jesus Christ, Your Son, our Lord, who lives and reigns with You and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and forever. Amen.

All praise for him whose candor
Through all his doubt You saw
When Philip at the fig tree
Disclosed You in the law.
Discern, beneath our surface,
O Lord, what we can be,
That by Your truth made guileless
Your glory we may see.

Then let us praise the Father
And worship God the Son
And sing to God the Spirit,
Eternal Three in One,
Till all the ransomed number
Fall down before the throne,
Ascribing pow'r and glory
And praise to God alone.

I understand that the Collects of the Day are not published in the pew version of the LSB, just in the Altar Book.

So ... where can an everyday ordinary Joe such as myself find these collects (assuming I don't want to buy an Altar Book for myself) to use in praying the Daily Office? (Other than gratefully looking them up on your blog!)

Well, I've been taking them from the LSB Proposal that was shipped out before Synod's last convention. Good point, though. I think I'm going to post them up on my blog as a separate file.
