Sixth Sunday after Epiphany

This collect is taken from the 1662 Book of Common Prayer; Cranmer did not write one for this extra Sunday, which occurs only in certain years:

“God, whose blessed Son was manifested that he might destroy the works of the devil, and make us the sons 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.”
