READING     Isaiah 45:8
Let justice descend, O heavens, like dew from above,
  like gentle rain let the skies drop it down.
Let the earth open and salvation bud forth;
  let justice also spring up!


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:The moment that your greeting reached my ears, the child within my womb leaped for joy.


INTERCESSIONS
To Christ our Redeemer, who comes to save us from our sins, let us cry out with joy:

                    Come, Lord Jesus!

The prophets of old foretold your birth among us,
 - now make virtue come to life in us.

We proclaim your saving work,
 - now grant us your salvation.

You came to heal the contrite,
 - heal the weaknesses of your people.

You came and saw fit to reconcile the world,
 - when you come again in judgment, free us from the torments of punishment.


Our Father...


COLLECT
O God, who, seeing the human race fallen into death,
willed to redeem it by the coming of your Only Begotten Son,
grant, we pray,
that those who confess his Incarnation with humble fervor
may merit his company as their Redeemer.
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.
