What is a collect? +
After the Gloria the priest says, "Let us pray." The prayer that follows is called the 'collect.' It is called this because it brings to a conclusion the opening rites of the Mass. This prayer collects everything that has preceded it. In the spiritual life we cultivate a spirit of recollection. This means that our minds and hearts are on the things of God. To be recollected is to be aware of our origin and our destiny.
This past Sunday, April 15, we heard this collect, opening prayer:
God of everlasting mercy, who in the very recurrence of the paschal feast
kindle the faith of the people you have made your own, increase, we pray,
the grace you have bestowed, that all may grasp and rightly understand
in what font they have been washed
by whose Spirit they have been reborn,
by whose blood they have been redeemed.
Through Christ our Lord.
If you meditate on these words they will remind you of your origin in Christ and the life you enjoy now through baptism. This prayer leads to our recollection of mind and heart. Read More
