Advent Calendar 2011: Week 1 Tuesday

Fountains of Rome
At the Temple of Hercules

Almighty God, give us grace to cast away the works of
darkness, and put on the armor of light, now in the time of
this mortal life in which your Son Jesus Christ came to visit
us in great humility; that in the last day, when he shall come
again in his glorious majesty to judge both the living and the
dead, we may rise to the life immortal; through him who lives
and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and
for ever. Amen.
Collect from the Book of Common Prayer
for the First Sunday of Advent

It is clear who did the English translation of the Roman Missal -- a bunch of Anglicans.

Can they make those sentences any longer???
