The Season of Epiphany seldom lasts nine weeks because Easter, and the Season of Lent which precedes it, usually arrive earlier rather than later for most years.
(A Collect [pronounced CAH-lect] is a prayer which helps us collect [pronounced cuh-LECT] the theme of the day or of the Scripture readings at a church service.)
The Collect for the Eighth Sunday is one of the loveliest and most reassuring and calming collects in The Book of Common Prayer, and a good one to carry with us through Lent and in these troubled times:
"Most loving Father, whose will it is for us to give thanks for all things, to fear nothing but the loss of you, and to cast all our cares on you who care for us: Preserve us from faithless fears and worldly anxieties, that no clouds of this mortal life may hide from us the light of that love which is immortal, and which you have manifested to us in your Son Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you, in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever. Amen."
