READING     Isaiah 11:1-3a
A shoot shall sprout from the stump of Jesse,
  and from his roots a bud shall blossom.
The spirit of the Lord shall rest upon him:
  a spirit of wisdom and of understanding,
A spirit of counsel and of strength,
  a spirit of knowledge and of fear of the Lord,
  and his delight shall be the fear of the Lord.


RESPONSORY
Your light will come Jerusalem; the Lord will dawn on you in radiant beauty.
- Your light will come Jerusalem; the Lord will dawn on you in radiant beauty.
You will see his glory within you;
 - the Lord will dawn on you in radiant beauty.
Glory to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit,
 - Your light will come Jerusalem; the Lord will dawn on you in radiant beauty


BENEDICTUS (Canticle of Zechariah)
Antiphon: Believe me, the kingdom of God is at hand: I tell you solemnly, your Savior will not delay his coming.


INTERCESSIONS
Let us pray to God our Father, who from of old has called his people to salvation:

                   Lord, protect your people.

You promised to plant the seed of justice among your people,
 - protect the holiness of your Church.

Lord, teach all men and women to listen to your word,
 - and help believers to persevere in holiness.

Keep us in the love of your Spirit,
 - that we may receive the mercy of your Son who is to come.

Father most merciful, strengthen us to the last,
 - until the day of the coming of Jesus Christ our Lord.


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.
