The Second Sunday after the Epiphany

Gerard David The Marriage at Cana

The Marriage at Cana, by Gerard David (c. 1450/60–1523). From Wikipedia.

Almighty and everlasting God, who dost govern all things in heaven and earth: Mercifully hear the supplications of thy people, and grant us thy peace all the days of our life; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

The 1928 Book of Common Prayer rearranged the lessons for the first few Sundays in Epiphany. In the 1662 Book of Common Prayer, the Gospel for Epiphany II is the Wedding Feast in Cana; the Gospel for Epiphany III is the healing of the centurion’s servant; the Gospel for Epiphany IV is the exorcism of the Gergesene (Gerasene) demoniac (the miracle of the Gadarene swine, in modern translations). The 1928 BCP uses the opening of the Gospel of Mark on Epiphany II, shifts the next two lessons later by one week, and omits the lesson about the Gadarene swine. The lessons are back in sync as of Epiphany V.
