Oh, and speaking of Cantate

is there a more wonderful collect than the appointed prayer for this Sunday? Every time I pray it, I think I need to pray this EVERY day. It's so exactly bang on and asks of God such a great gift. I'll give it in the OLD form, so as not to disturb copyright enthusiasts:

O God, who makest the minds of the faithful to be of one will, grant unto Thy people that they may love what Thou commandest and desire what Thou dost promise, that among the manifold changes of this world, our hearts may there be fixed where true joys are to be found; through Jesus Christ, Thy Son, our Lord...

Fix our hearts where true joys are found, O You who makes the minds of the faithful of a single will! Make us love whatever You command and long for whatever You promise! Thus is the triumph of Christ our Lord our certain and unchanging anchor that holds us fast amid a world of uncertainty.

What a prayer!
