Ordinary Time

WEEK 10 - SUNDAY

Daytime Prayer
Psalter, Week II Sunday


God, come to my assistance.
- Lord, make haste to help me.

Glory to the Father and to the Son and to the Holy Spirit,
As it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be, world without end. Amen. (Alleluia.)


HYMN

Lord of all being, thronèd afar,
Thy glory flames from sun and star;
Center and soul of every sphere,
Yet to each loving heart how near!

Sun of our life, Thy quickening ray,
Sheds on our path the glow of day;
Star of our hope, Thy softened light
Cheers the long watches of the night.

Lord of all life, below, above,
Whose light is truth, whose warmth is love,
Before Thy ever blazing throne
We ask no luster of our own.

Grant us Thy truth to make us free,
And kindling hearts that burn for Thee,
Till all Thy living altars claim
One holy light, one heavenly flame.
Text: Oliver Wendell Holmes; Melody: Uffingham L.M., Jeremiah Clark, 1707; Midi:Cyberhymnal


At one of the hours, the psalms are said as below. At the other hours, the complementary psalms are used.


PSALMODY

Antiphon 1: The Lord has brought me to green pastures, alleluia.

Psalm 23
The Good Shepherd
The lamb himself will be their shepherd and will lead them to the springs of living waters. (Revelation 7:17)


The Lord is my shepherd;
there is nothing I shall want.
Fresh and green are the pastures
where he gives me repose.
Near restful waters he leads me,
to revive my drooping spirit.

He guides me along the right path;
he is true to his name.
If I should walk in the valley of darkness
no evil would I fear.
You are there with your crook and your staff;
with these you give me comfort.

You have prepared a banquet for me
in the sight of my foes.
My head you have anointed with oil;
my cup is overflowing.

Surely goodness and kindness shall follow me
all the days of my life.
In the Lord's own house shall I dwell
for ever and ever. Glory...

Psalm Prayer: Lord Jesus Christ, Shepherd of your Church, you give us new birth in the waters of Baptism; you anoint us with oil, and call us to salvation at your table. Dispel the terrors of death and the darkness of error. Lead your people along safe paths, that they may rest securely in you and live for ever in your Father's house.

Antiphon: The Lord has brought me to green pastures, alleluia.


Antiphon 2: Great is the name of the Lord among his people, Israel, alleluia.

Psalm 76
Thanksgiving for victory
They will see the Son of Man coming on the clouds of heaven. (Matthew 24:30)

              I
God, you are made known in Judah;
in Israel your name is great.
You set up your tent in Jerusalem
and your dwelling place in Zion.
It was there you broke the flashing arrows,
the shield, the sword, the armor.

You, O Lord, are resplendent,
more majestic than the everlasting mountains.
The warriors, despoiled, slept in death;
the hands of the soldiers were powerless.
At your threat, O God of Jacob,
horse and rider lay stunned.  Glory...

Antiphon: Great is the name of the Lord among his people, Israel, alleluia.


Antiphon 3: Earth shuddered, then all was still, when God arose for judgment, alleluia.

               II

You, you alone, strike terror.
Who shall stand when your anger is roused?
You uttered your sentence from the heavens;
the earth in terror was still
when you arose to judge,
to save the humble of the earth.

Men's anger will serve to praise you;
its survivors surround you with joy.
Make vows to your God and fulfill them.
Let all pay tribute to him who strikes terror,
who cuts short the breath of princes,
who strikes terror in the kings of the earth.  Glory...

Psalm Prayer: Your power is awesome, Father, and wonderful is your holiness. In your presence the earth both trembles and stands still, for you shattered death's power by the cross. Rise to help your people: give your light and grant salvation to the meek of the earth, that they may praise your name in heaven.

Antiphon: Earth shuddered, then all was still, when God arose for judgment, alleluia.

TERCE



READING          Romans 5:1-2,5
Since we have been justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ, through whom we have gained access by faith to this grace in which we stand, and we boast in hope of the glory of God. And hope does not disappoint, because the love of God has been poured out into our hearts through the holy Spirit that has been given to us.


I will sing forever of your mercy, O Lord.
 - Make known to all generations the fidelity of our God.


PRAYER
Almighty God,
every good thing comes from you.
Fill our hearts with love for you,
increase our faith,
and by your constant care
protect the good you have given us.
We ask this through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son,
who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit,
one God, for ever and ever.


SEXT




READING          Romans 8:26
The Spirit comes to the aid of our weakness; for we do not know how to pray as we ought, but the Spirit itself intercedes with inexpressible groanings.


Lord, grant a hearing to my prayer.
 - Give me wisdom as you promised.


PRAYER
Almighty God,
every good thing comes from you.
Fill our hearts with love for you,
increase our faith,
and by your constant care
protect the good you have given us.
We ask this through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son,
who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit,
one God, for ever and ever.



NONE




READING          2 Corinthians 1:21-22

The Lord is my light and my help.
 - He is the protector of my life.

As in the Proper of Seasons


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