MAGNIFICAT (Canticle of Mary)
Antiphon:

O Adonai, et dux domus IsraŽl, qui Moyse in igne flammae rubi apparuisti, et ei in Sina legem dedisti: veni ad redimendum nos in brachio extento.
O sacred Lord of ancient Israel, who showed yourself to Moses in the burning bush, who gave him the holy law on Sinai mountain: come, stretch out your mighty hand to set us free.


INTERCESSIONS
To Christ the Lord, who was born of the Virgin Mary, let us pray with joyful hearts:

                     Come, Lord Jesus!

Lord Jesus, in the mystery of your incarnation you revealed your glory to the world,
 - give us new life by your coming.

You have taken our weakness upon yourself,
 - grant us your mercy.

You redeemed the world from sin by your first coming in humility,
 - free us from all guilt when you come again in glory.

You live and rule over all,
 - in your goodness bring us to our eternal inheritance.

You sit at the right hand of the Father,
 - gladden the souls of the dead with your light.


Our Father...


COLLECT
Grant, we pray, almighty God,
that we, who are weighed down from of old
by slavery beneath the yoke of sin,
may be set free by the newness
of the long-awaited Nativity
of your Only Begotten Son.
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.
