A Collect

Following Colossians 1 and Athanasius, “Discourse Against the Pagans”

God our Father,
Who, through Your Word and Son Jesus established all creation,
And in and through whom everything holds together;
We acknowledge the supremacy of Your Son, one with Yourself,
Over and above all other rulers or created things.
In Christ, the very image and fullness of Yourself,
You formed galaxies and established peace between Creator and creation.
All things find their fulfillment in Your work and in the work of Your Son,
And in Him we have the assurance and hope for the restoration of all things,
Where Your throne and Your goodness will be finally established on earth
And Christ shall reign with You and the Holy Spirit, one God forever.

Amen.
