READING      1 Corinthians 4:5
Stop passing judgment before the time of the Lord's return. He will bring to light what is hidden in darkness and will manifest the motives of our hearts, and then everyone will receive praise from God.


RESPONSORY
Come and set us free, Lord God of power and might.
 - Come and set us free, Lord God of power and might.
Let your face shine upon us and we shall be saved,
 - Lord God of power and might.
Glory to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit,
 - Come and set us free, Lord God of power and might.


MAGNIFICAT (Canticle of Mary)
Antiphon:

O Oriens, splendor lucis aeternae, et sol justitiae: veni, et illumina sedentes in tenebris, et umbra mortis.
O Radiant Dawn, splendor of eternal light, sun of justice: come, shine on those who dwell in darkness and the shadow of death.


INTERCESSIONS
We humbly pray to Jesus Christ, who rescues us from the darkness of sin, and in faith we cry out:

                                Come, Lord Jesus!

Lord, gather together all the people of the earth,
 - and establish with them your everlasting covenant.

Lamb of God, you came of old to take away the sin of the world,
 - purge us from the dregs of our guilt.

You came to recover what was lost,
 - come once again in your mercy lest you punish what you have recovered.

Our faith seeks you out,
 - let us find everlasting joy with you when you come.

You will judge the living and the dead,
 - graciously gather the dead into the ranks of the blessed.


Our Father...


COLLECT
Hear in kindness, O Lord,
the prayers of your people,
that those who rejoice
at the coming of your Only Begotten Son in our flesh
may, when at last he comes in glory,
gain the reward of eternal life.
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.
