READING     1 Thessalonians 5:23-24
May the God of peace make you perfect in holiness. May he preserve you whole and entire, spirit, soul, and body, irreproachable at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ. He who calls us is trustworthy, therefore he will do it.


RESPONSORY
Lord, show us your mercy and love.
 - Lord, show us your mercy and love.
And grant us your salvation,
 - your mercy and love.
Glory to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit,
 - Lord, show u s your mercy and love.


MAGNIFICAT (Canticle of Mary)
Antiphon:

O Sapientia, quae ex ore Altissimi prodiisti, attingens a fine usque ad finem fortiter, suaviterque disponens omnia: veni ad docendum nos viam prudentiae.
O Wisdom, O holy Word of God, you govern all creation with your strong yet tender care. Come and show your people the way to salvation.


INTERCESSIONS
Jesus Christ is the joy and happiness of all who look forward to his coming. Let us call upon him and say:

              Come, Lord, and do not delay!

In joy, we wait for your coming;
 - come, Lord Jesus.

Before time began, you shared life with the Father;
 - come now and save us.

You created the world and all who live in it;
 - come to redeem the work of your hands.

You did not hesitate to become man, subject to death;
 - come to free us from the power of death.

You came to give us life to the full;
 - come and give us your unending life.

You desire all people to live in love in your kingdom;
 - come and bring together those who long to see you face to face.


Our Father...


COLLECT
O God, Creator and Redeemer of human nature,
who willed that your Word should take flesh
in an ever-virgin womb,
look with favor on our prayers,
that your Only Begotten Son,
having taken to himself our humanity,
may be pleased to grant us a share in his divinity.
Who lives and reigns with you in the unity of the Holy Spirit,
one God, for ever and ever.


May the Lord bless us, protect us from all evil and bring us to everlasting life. Amen.
