TERCE (Midmorning)

Ant. Before the feast of the Passover, Jesus knew that his hour had come; he had always loved those who were his own, and now he would show them the depth of his love.

Psalms of the Day

Reading
Ezekiel 33:10-11

Our transgressions and our sins weigh upon us, and we waste away because of them; how then can we live?' As I live, says the Lord God, I have no pleasure in the death of the wicked, but that the wicked turn from their ways and live.

He freely gave himself in sacrifice.
- He said no word in his own defense.


COLLECT
Grant, we pray, almighty God,
that, though in our weakness we fail,
we may be revived through the Passion of your Only Begotten Son.
Who lives and reigns with you in the unity of the Holy Spirit,
one God, for ever and ever.


SEXT (Midday)

Antiphon: I know my sheep and my sheep know meó just as the Father knows me and I know the Fatheróand I lay down my life for the sheep.

Psalms of the Day

Reading
Jeremiah 18:20

Remember how I stood before you
   to speak good for them,
   to turn away your wrath from them.

Turn away your face from my sins.
 - Blot out all my guilt.


COLLECT
Grant, we pray, almighty God,
that, though in our weakness we fail,
we may be revived through the Passion of your Only Begotten Son.
Who lives and reigns with you in the unity of the Holy Spirit,
one God, for ever and ever.


NONE (Midafternoon)

Antiphon: For to me, to live is Christ and to die is gain. I glory in the cross of my Lord Jesus Christ.

Psalms of the Day

Reading
Jeremiah 31:2-4

Thus says the Lord:
The people who survived the sword
   found grace in the wilderness;
I have loved you with an everlasting love;
   therefore I have continued my faithfulness to you.
Again I will build you, and you shall be built,
   O virgin Israel!

Let us venerate the cross.
- Through it, we have received the sacrament of reconciliation.


COLLECT
Grant, we pray, almighty God,
that, though in our weakness we fail,
we may be revived through the Passion of your Only Begotten Son.
Who lives and reigns with you in the unity of the Holy Spirit,
one God, for ever and ever.

PSALMODY

Psalm 119:41-48
VI (Vau)

Lord, let your love come upon me,
the saving help of your promise.
And I shall answer those who taunt me
for I trust in your word.

Do not take the word of truth from my mouth
for I trust in your decrees.
I shall always keep your law
for ever and ever.

I shall walk in the path of freedom
for I seek your precepts.
I will speak of your will before kings
and not be abashed.

Your commands have been my delight;
these I have loved.
I will worship your commands and love them
and ponder your statutes. Glory...

Psalm Prayer: Father, let your salvation come to us as you have promised, that we may keep your law always and, taught by the word of truth, find strength in his salvation.


Psalm 40:2-14,17-18
Thanksgiving and plea for help
It was not sacrifice and oblation you wanted, but you have prepared a body for me. (Hebrews 10:5)


            I

I waited, I waited for the Lord
and he stooped down to me;
he heard my cry.

He drew me from the deadly pit,
from the miry clay.
He set my feet upon a rock
and made my footsteps firm.

He put a new song into my mouth,
praise of our God.
Many shall see and fear
and shall trust in the Lord.

Happy the man who has placed
his trust in the Lord
and has not gone over to the rebels
who follow false gods.

How many, O Lord my God,
are the wonders and designs
that you have worked for us;
you have no equal.
Should I proclaim and speak of them,
they are more than I can tell!

You do not ask for sacrifice and offerings,
but an open ear.
You do not ask for holocaust and victim.
Instead, here am I.

In the scroll of the book it stands written
that I should do your will.
My God, I delight in your law
in the depth of my heart. Glory...

               II

Your justice I have proclaimed
in the great assembly.
My lips I have not sealed;
you know it, O Lord.

I have not hidden your justice in my heart
but declared your faithful help.
I have not hidden your love and your truth
from the great assembly.

O Lord, you will not withhold
your compassion from me.
Your merciful love and your truth
will always guard me.

For I am beset with evils
too many to be counted.
My sins have fallen upon me
and my sight fails me.
They are more than the hairs of my head
and my heart sinks.

O let there be rejoicing and gladness
for all who seek you.
Let them ever say: The Lord is great,
who love your saving help.

As for me, wretched and poor,
the Lord thinks of me.
You are my rescuer, my help,
O God, do not delay. Glory...

Psalm Prayer: Lord Jesus Christ, you were made obedient unto death, and your name was exalted above all others. Teach us always to do the Fatherís will, so that, made holy by obedience which unites us to the sacrifice of your body, we can expect your great love in times of sorrow and sing a new song to our God.



Let us praise the Lord.
- And give him thanks.
