A Collect to Hold to Eternal Things
Holy Father, who was and is and is to come, keep us from relying on temporal things, that we would not fall into despair when they fail, but give us eyes that see eternal things and the will to put our hearts there, where we will find true security, sustained by your hand, through Jesus Christ our Lord, who reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, world without end. Amen.
'As he came out of the temple, one of his disciples said to him, "Look, Teacher, what large stones and what large buildings!" Then Jesus asked him, "Do you see these great buildings? Not one stone will be left here upon another; all will be thrown down."' - Mark 13:1-2
