PSALMODY

Antiphon 1: The Lord surrounds his people with his strength.


Those who put their trust in the Lord
are like Mount Zion, that cannot be shaken,
that stands for ever.

Jerusalem! The mountains surround her,
so the Lord surrounds his people
both now and for ever.

For the scepter of the wicked shall not rest
over the land of the just
for fear that the hands of the just
should turn to evil.

Do good, Lord, to those who are good,
to the upright of heart;
but the crooked and those who do evil,
drive them away!

On Israel, peace! Glory...

Psalm Prayer: Surround your people, Lord, within the safety of your Church, which you preserve on its rock foundation. Do not let us stretch out our hands to evil deeds, nor be destroyed by the insidious snares of the enemy, but bring us to share the lot of the saints in light.

Antiphon 1 The Lord surrounds his people with his strength.


Antiphon 2 Unless you acquire the heart of a child, you cannot enter the kingdom of God.


O Lord, my heart is not proud
nor haughty my eyes.
I have not gone after things too great
nor marvels beyond me.

Truly I have set my soul
in silence and peace.
A weaned child on its mother's breast,
even so is my soul.

O Israel, hope in the Lord
both now and forever. Glory...

Psalm Prayer: Lord Jesus, gentle and humble of heart, you declared that whoever receives a little child in your name receives you, and you promised your kingdom to those who are like children. Never let pride reign in our hearts, but may the Fatherís compassion reward and embrace all who willingly bear your gentle yoke.

Antiphon 2 Unless you acquire the heart of a child, you cannot enter the kingdom of God.


Antiphon 3 Lord, you have made us a kingdom and priests for God our Father.

Worthy are you, Lord our God,
to receive glory and honor and power,

For you created all things;
by your will they came to be and were created.

Worthy are you, O Lord,
to receive the scroll and to break open its seals.

For you were slain;
with your blood you purchased for God
those from every tribe and tongue,
of every people and nation.

You made them a kingdom
and priests to serve our God,
and they shall reign on earth.

Worthy is the Lamb that was slain
to receive power and riches,
wisdom and strength,
honor and glory and blessing. Glory...

Antiphon 3 Lord, you have made us a kingdom and priests for God our Father.


READING           James 2:14,17,18b
What good is it, my brothers, if someone says he has faith but does not have works? Can that faith save him? So also faith of itself, if it does not have works, is dead. Indeed someone might say, "You have faith and I have works." Demonstrate your faith to me without works, and I will demonstrate my faith to you from my works.


RESPONSORY
To you, O Lord, I make my prayer for mercy;  
- To you, O Lord, I make my prayer for mercy;
heal my soul, for I have sinned against you.
- I make my prayer for mercy;
Glory to the Father to the Son and to the Holy Spirit.
- To you, O Lord, I make my prayer for mercy.  


MAGNIFICAT
(Canticle of Mary)
Antiphon: This is how my heavenly Father will treat each one of you, unless you forgive your brothers and sisters from your heart.


INTERCESSIONS
Christ our Lord has warned us to watch and pray to avoid temptation. With our whole heart let us pray to him:

                        Turn to us, Lord, and have mercy.

Jesus, our Christ, you promised to be with those who pray in your name,
 - help us always to pray with you to the Father in the Holy Spirit.

Bridegroom of the Church, cleanse her from every stain,
 - teach her to walk in hope and in the power of the Holy Spirit.

Friend of the human race, teach us concern for our neighbor as you have commanded,
 - that all may see you more clearly as the light of the world.

King of peace, give your peace to the world,
 - that your presence may reveal your saving power in every place.

Open the door of eternal happiness to all the dead,
 - welcome them into the glory of unending life.


Our Father...


COLLECT
May your grace not forsake us, O Lord, we pray,
but make us dedicated to your holy service
and at all times obtain for us your help.
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.
