Last Sunday in Ordinary Time

CHRIST THE KING

Evening Prayer II

God, come to my assistance.
 - Lord, make haste to help me.
Glory to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit:
 -  as it was in the beginning, is now, and will be for ever.
Amen. Alleluia.


HYMN
-
Crown him with many crowns,
the Lamb upon his throne.
Hark! How the heav'nly anthem drowns
all music but its own.
Awake, my soul, and sing
Of him who died for thee,
and hail him as thy matchless King
through all eternity.

Crown him the Lord of Lords,
who over all doth reign,
who once on earth, the incarnate Word,
for ransomed sinners slain,
now lives in realms of light,
where saints with angels sing
their songs before him day and night,
their God, Redeemer, King.

Crown him the Lord of Heav'n,
enthroned in worlds above,
crown him the King to whom is giv'n
the wondrous name of Love.
Crown him with many crowns,
as thrones before him fall;
Crown him, ye kings, with many crowns,
for he is King of all.

PSALMODY

Antiphon: He shall sit upon the throne of David and rule over his kingdom for ever, alleluia.

Psalm 110:1-5,7

The Lord's revelation to my Master:
"Sit on my right:
your foes I will put beneath your feet."
The Lord will wield from Zion
your scepter of power:
rule in the midst of all your foes.

A prince from the day of your birth
on the holy mountains;
from the womb before the dawn I begot you.

The Lord has sworn an oath he will not change.
"You are a priest for ever,
a priest like Melchizedeck of old."

The Master standing at your right hand
will shatter kings in the day of his wrath.

He shall drink from the stream by the wayside
and therefore he shall lift up his head. Glory...


Antiphon:He shall sit upon the throne of David and rule over his kingdom for ever, alleluia.

Antiphon: Your kingdom shall be an everlasting kingdom, and you shall rule from generation to generation.

Psalm 145:1-13

I will give you glory, O God my king,
I will bless your name for ever.

I will bless you day after day
and praise your name for ever.
The Lord is great, highly to be praised,
his greatness cannot be measured.

Age to age shall proclaim your works,
shall declare your mighty deeds,
shall speak of your splendor and glory,
tell the tale of your wonderful works.
They will speak of your terrible deeds,
recount your greatness and might.
They will recall your abundant goodness;
age to age shall ring out your justice.

The Lord is kind and full of compassion,
slow to anger, abounding in love.
How good is the Lord to all,
compassionate to all his creatures.

All your creatures shall thank you, O Lord,
and your friends shall repeat their blessing.
They shall speak of the glory of your reign
and declare your might, O God,

to make known to all your mighty deeds
and the glorious splendor of your reign.
Yours is an everlasting kingdom;
your rule lasts from age to age.

The Lord is faithful in all his words
and loving in all his deeds. Glory...

Antiphon: Your kingdom shall be an everlasting kingdom, and you shall rule from generation to generation.

READING      1 Corinthians 15:25-28
For Christ must reign until God has put all his enemies under his feet, and the last enemy to be destroyed is death.  Scripture reads that God "has placed all things under his feet."  But when it says that everything has been made subject, it is clear that he who has made everything subject to Christ is excluded.  When, finally, all has been subjected to the Son, he will then subject himself to the One who made all things subject to him, so that God may be all in all.


RESPONSORY
Your throne, O God, shall stand for ever.
  -  Your throne, O God, shall stand for ever.

The scepter of your kingdom is a scepter of justice.
  -  It shall stand for ever.

Glory to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit,
  -  Your throne, O God, shall stand for ever.


MAGNIFICAT (Canticle of Mary)
Antiphon: All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me, says the Lord.


INTERCESSIONS
Let us pray to Christ the King. He is the firstborn of all creation; all things exist in him.

                          May your kingdom come, O Lord.

Christ, our king and shepherd, gather your sheep from every land.
 - Give them pasture in green and fertile meadows.

Christ, our leader and savior, form all men into your own people, heal the sick, seek out the lost, guard the strong,
 - call back those who have wandered away, strengthen those who waver, gather all sheep into one flock.

Judge of all ages, when you hand over your kingdom to the Father, place us at your right hand,
 - so that we may inherit the kingdom prepared for us from the beginning of the world.

Prince of peace, break the weapons of war,
 - and inspire the nations with your peace.

Christ, heir of all nations, gather humanity and all the good things of your creation into the kingdom of your Church which your Father bestowed on you,
 - so that the whole body of your people, united in the Holy Spirit, may acknowledge you as their head.

Christ, firstborn of the dead and first fruits of those who have fallen asleep in death,
 - bring all who have died to the glory of the resurrection.


Our Father…


COLLECT
Stir up the will of your faithful, we pray, O Lord,
that, striving more eagerly
to bring your divine work to fruitful completion,
they may receive in greater measure
the healing remedies your kindness bestows.
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.
