HYMN

Alleluia! Alleluia! Alleluia!
We Who Once Were Dead

Ad Cenam Agni Providi


PSALMODY

Antiphon 1: May the peace of Christ fill your hearts with joy, alleluia.

I rejoiced when I heard them say:
Let us go to God's house.
And now our feet are standing
within your gates, O Jerusalem.

Jerusalem is built as a city
strongly compact.
It is there that the tribes go up,
the tribes of the Lord.

For Israel's law it is,
there to praise the Lord's name.
There were set the thrones of judgment
of the house of David.

For the peace of Jerusalem pray:
Peace be to your homes!

For love of my brethren and friends
I say: Peace upon you.
For love of the house of the Lord
I will ask for your good. Glory...


Psalm Prayer: When you rose from the dead, Lord Jesus, you formed the Church into your new body, and made of it the new Jerusalem, united in your Spirit. Give us peace in our day. Make all nations come to your Church to share in the gifts in fellowship, that they may render you thanks without end and come to your eternal city.

Antiphon 1 May the peace of Christ fill your hearts with joy, alleluia.


Antiphon 2 With your own blood, you have redeemed us for God, alleluia.

Out of the depths I cry to you, O Lord,
Lord, hear my voice!
O let your ears be attentive
to the voice of my pleading.

If you, O Lord, should mark our guilt,
Lord, who would survive?
But with you is found forgiveness:
for this we revere you.

My soul is waiting for the Lord.
I count on his word.
My soul is longing for the Lord
more than watchman for daybreak.
(Let the watchman count on daybreak
and Israel on the Lord.)

Because with the Lord there is mercy
and fullness of redemption,
Israel indeed he will redeem
from all its iniquity. Glory...

Psalm Prayer: Lord Jesus, uphold those who hope in you and give us your counsel, so that we may know the joy of your resurrection and deserve to be among the saints at your right hand.

Antiphon 2 With your own blood, you have redeemed us for God, alleluia.


Antiphon 3 Was it not necessary for Christ to suffer and so enter into his glory? alleluia.


Canticle  -  Philippians 2:6-11
Christ, God's holy servant

Though he was in the form of God,
Jesus did not deem equality with God
something to be grasped at.

Rather, he emptied himself
and took the form of a slave,
being born in the likeness of men.

He was known to be of human estate
and it was thus that he humbled himself,
obediently accepting even death,
death on a cross!

Because of this,
God highly exalted him
and bestowed on him the name
above every other name,  

So that at Jesus' name
every knee must bend
in the heavens, on the earth,
and under the earth,
and every tongue proclaim
to the glory of God the Father:  
JESUS CHRIST IS LORD!   Glory...

Antiphon 3 Was it not necessary for Christ to suffer and so enter into his glory? alleluia.


READING     1 Peter 2:9-10
You are "a chosen race, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people of his own, so that you may announce the praises" of him who called you out of darkness into his wonderful light. Once you were "no people" but now you are God's people; you "had not received mercy" but now you have received mercy.


RESPONSORY
The disciples rejoiced, alleluia, alleluia.
 - The disciples rejoiced, alleluia, alleluia.
When they saw the risen Lord
 - alleluia, alleluia.
Glory to the Father and to the Son and to the Holy Spirit
 - The disciples rejoiced, alleluia, alleluia.


MAGNIFICAT (Canticle of Mary)
Antiphon: I am the gate, says the Lord; whoever enters through me shall be saved, alleluia.


INTERCESSIONS
In rising from the dead, Christ destroyed death and restored life.  Let us cry out to him, saying:

                      Lord Jesus, you live forever; hear our prayer.

You are the stone rejected by the builders which became the chief cornerstone,
 - make us living stones in the temple of your Church.

You are the faithful and true witness, the first born from the dead,
 - make your church bear constant witness to yourself.

You alone are the Bridegroom of the Church, born from your wounded side,
 - make us reveal to the world the love of Bridegroom and Bride.

You are the first and the last, you were dead and are alive,
 - keep those who have been baptized faithful until death, that they may receive the crown of victory.


Our Father...


COLLECT
Almighty ever-living God,
lead us to a share in the joys of heaven,
so that the humble flock may reach
where the brave Shepherd has gone before.
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.
