Today we remember and give thanks for Frederick the Wise, Christian Ruler. Frederick
the Wise, elector of Saxony from 1486 to 1525, was Martin Luther's sovereign in
the early years of the Reformation. Were it not for
Collect of the Day:
Together with Fredrick and all your saints who now rest from their labors, we look forward to your future coming to usher in your new creation--a place free from sin and death, a place where all our voices will praise You without end for Your great glory. Until that appointed time, continue to sustain us in this certain hope throughout all our earthly days; through Jesus Christ, our Lord, who lives and reigns with You and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and forever.
(Treasury of Daily Prayer, pg. 1294-1295).
