The Genesis stories read this week recall Sarah’s death and her burial in land promised to Abraham by God. They also recall Isaac’s marriage to Rebecca, securing the promise of heirs to Abraham. The last great test God gives to Abraham is recalled on Thursday, when God asks him to sacrifice his son.

Three important apostles are recalled in feasts this week: Peter and Paul and Thomas.

Morning and Evening Prayer: week 2 here.
