PSALMODY

Antiphon 1: In holy splendor the Lord will send forth you holy sceptre from Zion.


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 In holy splendor the Lord will send forth you holy sceptre from Zion.


Antiphon 2 We worship the one true God who made heaven and earth.

Psalm 115
Praise of the true God

You have renounced idol worship to serve the living and true God. (1 Thess 1:9)


Not to us, Lord, not to us,
but to your name give the glory
for the sake of your love and your truth,
lest the heathen say: “Where is their God?”

But our God is in the heavens;
he does whatever he wills.
Their idols are silver and gold,
the work of human hands.

They have mouths but they cannot speak;
they have eyes but they cannot see;
they have ears but they cannot hear;
they have nostrils but they cannot smell.

With their hands they cannot feel;
with their feet they cannot walk.
No sound comes from their throats.

Their makers will come to be like them
and so will all who trust in them.

Sons of Israel, trust in the Lord;
he is their help and their shield.
Sons of Aaron, trust in the Lord;
he is their help and their shield.

You who fear him, trust in the Lord;
he is their help and their shield.
He remembers us, and he will bless us;
he will bless the sons of Israel.
He will bless the sons of Aaron.

The Lord will bless those who fear him,
the little no less than the great:
to you may the Lord grant increase,
to you and all your children.

May you be blessed by the Lord,
the maker of heaven and earth.
The heavens belong to the Lord
but the earth he has given to men.

The dead shall not praise the Lord,
nor those who go down into the silence.
But we who live bless the Lord
now and for ever. Amen.  Glory...

Psalm Prayer: Father, creator and ruler of heaven and earth, you made man in your likeness to subdue the earth and master it, and to recognize the work of your hands in created beauty. Grant that your children, thus surrounded on all sides by signs of your presence, may live continually in Christ, praising you through him and with him.

Antiphon 2 We worship the one true God who made heaven and earth.


Antiphon 3 God did not spare his own Son but gave him up for us all.


Canticle  -  1 Peter 2:21b-24
The willing acceptance of his passion by Christ, the servant of God

Christ suffered  for you,
and left you an example
to have you follow in his footsteps.

He did no wrong;
no deceit was found in his mouth.  
When he was insulted,
he returned no insult.
 
When he was made to suffer,
he did not counter with threats.
Instead, he delivered himself up
to the One who judges justly.

In his own body
He brought your sins to the cross,
so that all of us, dead to sin,
could live in accord with God's will.

By his wounds you were healed.  Glory...

Antiphon 3 God did not spare his own Son but gave him up for us all.


READING           1 Corinthians 9:24-27
Do you not know that the runners in the stadium all run in the race, but only one wins the prize? Run so as to win. Every athlete exercises discipline in every way. They do it to win a perishable crown, but we an imperishable one.

Thus I do not run aimlessly; I do not fight as if I were shadowboxing. No, I drive my body and train it, for fear that, after having preached to others, I myself should be disqualified.


RESPONSORY
Listen to us, O Lord, and have mercy, for we have sinned against you.
- Listen to us, O Lord, and have mercy, for we have sinned against you.
Christ Jesus, hear our humble petitions.
- for we have sinned against you.
Glory to the Father and to the Son and to the Holy Spirit.
- Listen to us, O Lord, and have mercy, for we have sinned against you.


MAGNIFICAT (Canticle of Mary)
Antiphon: Tell no one about the vision you have seen until the Son of Man has risen from the dead.


INTERCESSIONS
Let us give glory to God, who has concern for us all. Let us call upon him and say:

                          Lord, save the people you have redeemed.

Giver of all gifts and source of all truth, give the fullness of your blessing to the college of bishops,
  - and keep all those entrusted to their care faithful to the teaching of the apostles.

Pour your love into the hearts of all who share the one bread of life,
  - that they may grow in unity in the body of your Son.

Help us to strip off our sinful selves,
  - and to be clothed with Christ, your Son, the new Adam.

Grant that all may do penance and find forgiveness,
  - and so share in the fruits of Christ's redeeming death.

May those who have died in your peace give you everlasting glory in heaven,
  - where we, too, hope to praise you for ever.


Our Father...


COLLECT
O God, who have commanded us
to listen to your beloved Son,
be pleased, we pray,
to nourish us inwardly by your word,
that, with spiritual sight made pure,
we may rejoice to behold your glory.
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.
