O God, you are my God, for you I long; *

For the Lord takes delight in his people. *
He crowns the poor with salvation.
Let the faithful rejoice in their glory, *
shout for joy and take their rest.
Let the praise of God be on their lips *
and a two-edged sword in their hand,

to deal out vengeance to the nations *
and punishment on all the peoples;
to bind their kings in chains *
and their nobles in fetters of iron;
to carry out the sentence pre-ordained; *
this honor is for all his faithful.

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.

READING
God raised up Jesus on the third day and granted that he be seen, not by all, but only by such witnesses as had been chosen beforehand by God - by us who ate and drank with him after he rose from the dead. He commissioned us to preach to the people and bear witness that he is the one set apart by God as judge of the living and the dead. To him all the prophets testify, saying that everyone who believes in him has forgiveness of sins through his name. - Acts 10:40b-43


In place of the responsory, the following is said:

This is the day that the Lord has made; we will rejoice and be glad in it, alleluia.


BENEDICTUS (Canticle of Zechariah)
Antiphon With your hand, touch the mark of the nails; doubt no longer, but believe, alleluia.


INTERCESSIONS

God the almighty Father raised Jesus as the firstborn from the dead, and made him our Savior.  Let us call upon him, saying:
                      Give us, Lord, the glory of your Son.

All-holy Father, you brought your beloved Son Jesus from the darkness of death into the splendor of your glory,
 - bring us also into your marvelous light.

You have given us faith to save us,
 - may we live by the faith of our baptism.

You command us to seek the things that are above, where Christ is seated at your right hand,
 - do not let us be deceived by the allurements of sin.

May our life, hidden with Christ in you, our Father, shine before the world,
 - foreshadowing a new heaven and a new earth.


Our Father...


COLLECT
God of everlasting mercy,
who in the very recurrence of the paschal feast
kindle the faith of the people you have made your own,
increase, we pray, the grace you have bestowed,
that all may grasp and rightly understand
in what font they have been washed,
by whose Spirit they have been reborn,
by whose Blood they have been redeemed.
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.

In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit. Amen.
