Archbishop of Canterbury from 1942-44, William Temple was a leader in the ecumenical movement and in educational, labour and social reform. He lectured in philosophy at Queen’s College, Oxford (1904-10) and was ordained to the priesthood in 1909. He became headmaster of Repton School (1910-14) and rector of St James’s Piccadilly in London (1914-17). Later he became leader of the ‘Life and Liberty movement’ which hugely influenced the shift towards synodical and democratic government in the Church of England. He was successively a Canon of Westminster (1919-21), Bishop of Manchester (1921-29), Archbishop of York (1929-42) and Archbishop of Canterbury (1942-4).

The Collect
O God, whose blessed Son was manifested that he might destroy the works of the devil and make us the children of God and heirs of eternal life:  Grant us, we beseech thee, that, having this hope, we may purify ourselves even as he is pure; that, when he shall appear again with power and great glory, we may be made like unto him in his eternal and glorious kingdom; where with thee, O Father, and thee, O Holy Ghost, he liveth and reigneth ever, one God, world without end.  Amen
Lesson: Amos 5: 18-24

18 Alas for you who desire the day of the Lord!
    Why do you want the day of the Lord?
It is darkness, not light;
19     as if someone fled from a lion,
    and was met by a bear;
or went into the house and rested a hand against the wall,
    and was bitten by a snake.
20 Is not the day of the Lord darkness, not light,
    and gloom with no brightness in it?

21 I hate, I despise your festivals,
    and I take no delight in your solemn assemblies.
22 Even though you offer me your burnt offerings and grain offerings,
    I will not accept them;
and the offerings of well-being of your fatted animals
    I will not look upon.
23 Take away from me the noise of your songs;
    I will not listen to the melody of your harps.
24 But let justice roll down like waters,
    and righteousness like an ever-flowing stream.


Psalm 70

1      Be pleased, O God, to deliver me; *
     O Lord, make haste to help me.
2      Let those who seek my life be ashamed
and altogether dismayed; *
     let those who take pleasure in my misfortune
     draw back and be disgraced.
3      Let those who say to me “Aha!” and gloat over me turn back, *
     because they are ashamed.
4      Let all who seek you rejoice and be glad in you; *
     let those who love your salvation say for ever,
     “Great is the Lord!”
5      But as for me, I am poor and needy; *
     come to me speedily, O God.
6      You are my helper and my deliverer; *
     O Lord, do not tarry.

 Epistle:  1 Thessalonians 4:13-18

13 But we do not want you to be uninformed, brothers and sisters,[a] about those who have died,[b] so that you may not grieve as others do who have no hope. 14 For since we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so, through Jesus, God will bring with him those who have died.[c] 15 For this we declare to you by the word of the Lord, that we who are alive, who are left until the coming of the Lord, will by no means precede those who have died.[d] 16 For the Lord himself, with a cry of command, with the archangel’s call and with the sound of God’s trumpet, will descend from heaven, and the dead in Christ will rise first. 17 Then we who are alive, who are left, will be caught up in the clouds together with them to meet the Lord in the air; and so we will be with the Lord forever. 18 Therefore encourage one another with these words.


Gospel:  Matthew 25:1-13

25 “Then the kingdom of heaven will be like this. Ten bridesmaids[a] took their lamps and went to meet the bridegroom.[b] Five of them were foolish, and five were wise. When the foolish took their lamps, they took no oil with them; but the wise took flasks of oil with their lamps. As the bridegroom was delayed, all of them became drowsy and slept. But at midnight there was a shout, ‘Look! Here is the bridegroom! Come out to meet him.’ Then all those bridesmaids[c] got up and trimmed their lamps. The foolish said to the wise, ‘Give us some of your oil, for our lamps are going out.’ But the wise replied, ‘No! there will not be enough for you and for us; you had better go to the dealers and buy some for yourselves.’ 10 And while they went to buy it, the bridegroom came, and those who were ready went with him into the wedding banquet; and the door was shut. 11 Later the other bridesmaids[d] came also, saying, ‘Lord, lord, open to us.’ 12 But he replied, ‘Truly I tell you, I do not know you.’ 13 Keep awake therefore, for you know neither the day nor the hour.[e]
