READING     Isaiah 2:3b
Come, let us climb the Lord's mountain,
  to the house of the God of Jacob,
That he may instruct us in his ways,
  and we may walk in his paths."
For from Zion shall go forth instruction,
  and the word of the Lord from Jerusalem.


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: Like the sun in the morning sky, the Savior of the world will dawn; like rain on the meadows he will descend to rest in the womb of the Virgin, alleluia.


INTERCESSIONS
To Christ our Redeemer, who will come again to free from the power of death all those who return to him, let us humbly pray:

            Come, Lord Jesus!

As we proclaim your coming, Lord,
 - cleanse our hearts of every vain desire.

Lord, may the Church which you founded,
 - proclaim your greatness to all peoples.

Your law is a light to our eyes,
 - let it protect those who trust in you.

You allow the joys of your coming to be foretold to us by your Church,
 - may we receive you with eager devotion


Our Father...


COLLECT
O God, who through the child-bearing of the holy Virgin
graciously revealed the radiance of your glory to the world,
grant, we pray,
that we may venerate with integrity of faith
the mystery of so wondrous an Incarnation
and always celebrate it with due reverence.
Through our Lord Jesus Christ, your 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.
