PSALMODY

Antiphon 1: Let us go to God's house with rejoicing.


Psalm 122

Holy city Jerusalem
You have come to Mount Zion, the city of the living God, heavenly Jerusalem (Hebrews 12:22)

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 Let us go to God's house with rejoicing.


Antiphon 2 Awake from your sleep, rise from the dead, and Christ will give you light.


Psalm 130
A cry from the depths

He himself will save his people from their sins (Matthew 1:21).

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 Awake from your sleep, rise from the dead, and Christ will give you light.


Antiphon 3 So great was God's love for us that when we were dead because of our sins, he brought us to life in Christ Jesus.


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 So great was God's love for us that when we were dead because of our sins, he brought us to life in Christ Jesus.


READING     2 Corinthians 6:1-4a
We appeal to you not to receive the grace of God in vain. For he says: "In an acceptable time I heard you, and on the day of salvation I helped you." Behold, now is a very acceptable time; behold, now is the day of salvation. We cause no one to stumble in anything, in order that no fault may be found with our ministry;on the contrary, in everything we commend ourselves as ministers of God.


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: God loved the world so much that he gave his only Son to save all who have faith in him, and to give them eternal life.


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 through your Word
reconcile the human race to yourself in a wonderful way,
grant, we pray,
that with prompt devotion and eager faith
the Christian people may hasten
toward the solemn celebrations to come.
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.
