Antiphon 1: He purified us from our sins, and is seated on high at God's right hand, alleluia.


Psalm 110:1-5,7
The Messiah, king and priest
Christ's reign will last until all his enemies are made subject to him (1 Corinthians 15:25)

The Lord's revelation to my Master:
"Sit on my right:
your foes I will put beneath your feet."
The Lord will yield 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...

Psalm Prayer: Father, we ask you to give us victory and peace. In Jesus Christ, our Lord and King, we are already seated at your right hand. We look forward to praising you in the fellowship of all your saints in our heavenly homeland.

Antiphon 1 He purified us from our sins, and is seated on high at God's right hand, alleluia.


Antiphon 2 The Lord has redeemed his people, alleluia.


Psalm 111
God's marvelous works

We are lost in wonder at all you have done for us, our Lord and mighty God (Revelation 15:3)

I will thank the Lord with all my heart
in the meeting of the just and their assembly.
Great are the works of the Lord,
to be pondered by all who love them.

Majestic and glorious his work,
his justice stands firm for ever.
He makes us remember his wonders.
The Lord is compassion and love.

He gives food to those who fear him;
keeps his covenant ever in mind.
He has shown his might to his people
by giving them the lands of the nations.

His works are justice and truth,
his precepts are all of them sure,
standing firm for ever and ever;
they are made in uprightness and truth.

He has sent deliverance to his people
and established his covenant for ever.
Holy his name, to be feared.

To fear the Lord is the first stage of wisdom;
all who do so prove themselves wise.
His praise shall last for ever! Glory...

Psalm Prayer: Merciful and gentle Lord, you are the crowning glory of all the saints. Give us, your children, the gift of obedience which is the beginning of wisdom, so that we may do what you command and be filled with your mercy.

INTERCESSIONS
We do not know how to pray as we ought, but the Spirit himself prays for us with inexpressible longing.  Let us then say:

                           May the Holy Spirit pray on our behalf

Lord Jesus, shepherd in glory, give wisdom and counsel to our shepherds,
 - to lead your flock more surely to salvation.

You are exalted in heaven and are rich in mercy,
 - look with compassion on the poor and needy on earth.

You were conceived by the Virgin Mary by the overshadowing of the Holy Spirit,
 - sustain those vowed to virginity in the spirit of their self-offering.

You are our priest, offering praise to the Father in the Holy Spirit,
 - unite all mankind in your sacrifice of praise.

May the dead enter into the glorious freedom of God’s children,
 - and the fullness of redemption for their bodies.


Our Father...


COLLECT
Graciously hear our supplications, O Lord,
so that we, who believe that the Savior of the human race
is with you in your glory,
may experience, as he promised,
until the end of the world,
his abiding presence among us.
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.
