When Morning Gilds the Skies from @StJohnsPriest

It’s a little late in the liturgical calendar, but I present this hymn, not well known outside of proper circles, from St. John’s Episcopal Church in Detroit, my usual “go-to” for proper High Church procedure:

On a separate note, one of the thing necessitated by the Daily Office is prayers for the country and its leadership, which have been a trying business these last few years. But Steven Kelly, St. John’s Rector, is a better man than I am because, at Evening Prayer, in addition to our officials in Washington, he also must include Gretchen Whitmer.

Those that have gone before us in the faith have prayed for the likes of Nero, Domitian, Decius and Diocletian, so must we pray for those who have come after them, too.
