PSALMODY

Antiphon 1: As the serpent was lifted up in the desert, so the Son of Man must be lifted up.


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 wield 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 As the serpent was lifted up in the desert, so the Son of Man must be lifted up.


Antiphon 2 The Lord of hosts protects us and sets us free, he guides and saves his people.


When Israel came forth from Egypt,
Jacob's sons from an alien people
Judah became the Lord's temple,
Israel became his kingdom.

The sea fled at the sight:
the Jordan turned back on its course,
the mountains leapt like rams
and the hills like yearling sheep.

Why was it, sea, that you fled,
that you turned back, Jordan, on your course?
Mountains, that you leapt like rams;
hills, like yearling sheep?

Tremble, O earth, before the Lord,
in the presence of the God of Jacob,
who turns the rock into a pool
and flint into a spring of water. Glory...

Psalm Prayer: Almighty God, ever-living mystery of unity and trinity, you gave life to the new Israel by birth from water and the Spirit, and made it a chosen race, a royal priesthood, a people set apart as your eternal possession. May all those you have called to walk in the splendor of the new light render you fitting service and adoration.

Antiphon 2 The Lord of hosts protects us and sets us free, he guides and saves his people.


Antiphon 3 He was pierced for our offenses and burdened with our sins. By his wounds we are healed.


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 He was pierced for our offenses and burdened with our sins. By his wounds we are healed.


READING      Acts 13:26-30
My brothers, children of the family of Abraham, and those others among you who are God-fearing, to us this word of salvation has been sent.The inhabitants of Jerusalem and their leaders failed to recognize him, and by condemning him they fulfilled the oracles of the prophets that are read sabbath after sabbath. For even though they found no grounds for a death sentence, they asked Pilate to have him put to death, and when they had accomplished all that was written about him, they took him down from the tree and placed him in a tomb. But God raised him from the dead.


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: When I am lifted up from the earth, I will draw all people to myself.


INTERCESSIONS
All praise to God the Father who brought his chosen people to rebirth from imperishable seed through his eternal Word.  Let us ask him as his children:

   Lord, be gracious to your people.

God of mercy, hear the prayers we offer for all your people,
 - may they hunger for your word more than for bodily food.

Give us a sincere and active love for our own nation and for all mankind,
 - may we work always to build a world of peace and goodness.

 Look with love on all to be reborn in baptism,
 - that they may be living stones in your temple of the Spirit.

You moved Nineveh to repentance by the preaching of Jonah,
 - in your mercy touch the hearts of sinners by the preaching of your word.

May the dying go in hope to meet Christ their judge,
 - may they rejoice for ever in the vision of your glory.


Our Father...


COLLECT
By your help, we beseech you, Lord our God,
may we walk eagerly in that same charity
with which, out of love for the world,
your Son handed himself over to death.
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.
