Current collect
Heavenly Father,
whose blessed Son was revealed
to destroy the works of the devil
and to make us the children of God and the heirs of eternal life:
grant that we, having this hope,
may purify ourselves even as he is pure;
that when he shall appear in power and great glory
we may be made like him in his eternal and glorious kingdom;
where he is alive and reigns with you,
in the unity of the Holy Spirit,
one God, now and for ever.
