Ordinary Time

WEEK 17 - SUNDAY

Daytime Prayer
Psalter, Week I 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

Breathe on me, breath of God,
fill me with life anew,
that I may love the things You love,
and do what You would do.

Breathe on me, breath of God,
until my heart is pure,
until with You I have one will,
to live and to endure.

Breathe on me, breath of God,
my soul with grace refine,
until this earthly part of me,
glows with Your fire divine.

Breathe on me, breath of God,
so I shall never die,
but live with You the perfect life
in Your eternity.

Edwin Hatch, 1835-1889, alt. Evelyn Brokish, OSF; Yattendon 46


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


PSALMODY

Antiphon 1: What better can we do than take refuge in the Lord!  His love will never fail, alleluia.

Psalm 118
Song of joy for salvation
This Jesus is the stone which, rejected by you builders, has become the chief stone supporting all the rest (Acts 4:11)


                 I
Give thanks to the Lord for he is good,
for his love endures for ever.

Let the sons of Israel say:
His love endures for ever.
Let the sons of Aaron say:
His love endures for ever.
Let those who fear the Lord say:
His love endures for ever.

I called to the Lord in my distress;
he answered and freed me.
The Lord is at my side; I do not fear.
what can man do against me?
The Lord is at my side as my helper;
I shall look down on my foes.

It is better to take refuge in the Lord
than to trust in men;
it is better to take refuge in the Lord
than to trust in princes.  Glory...

Antiphon:  What better can we do than take refuge in the Lord!  His love will never fail, alleluia.


Antiphon 2:  The Lord is my strength, and I shall sing his praise, alleluia.

              II
The nations all encompassed me;
in the Lord's name I crushed them.
They compassed me, compassed me about;
in the Lord's name I crushed them.
They compassed me about like bees;
they blazed like a fire among thorns.
In the Lord's name I crushed them.

I was thrust down, thrust down and falling,
but the Lord was my helper.
The Lord is my strength and my song;
he is my savior.
There are shouts of joy and victory
in the tents of the just.

The Lord's right hand has triumphed;
his right hand raised me.
The Lord's right hand has triumphed;
I shall not die, I shall live
and recount his deeds.
I was punished, I was punished by the Lord,
but not doomed to die.  Glory...

Antiphon:  The Lord is my strength, and I shall sing his praise, alleluia.


Antiphon 3:  I shall proclaim your goodness Lord, for you have answered me, alleluia.

               III
Open to me the gates of holiness:
I will enter and give thanks.
This is the Lord's own gate
where the just may enter.
I will thank you for you have answered
and you are my savior.

The stone which the builders rejected
has become the corner stone.
This is the work of the Lord,
a marvel in our eyes.
This day was made by the Lord;
we rejoice and are glad.

O Lord, grant us salvation;
O Lord, grant success.
Blessed in the name of the Lord
is he who comes.
We bless you from the house of the Lord;
the Lord God is our light.

Go forward in procession with branches
even to the altar.
You are my God, I thank you.
My God, I praise you.
Give thanks to the Lord for he is good;
for his love endures for ever.  Glory...

Psalm Prayer: Lord God, you have given us the great day of rejoicing: Jesus Christ, the stone rejected by the builders, has become the cornerstone of the Church, our spiritual home. Shed upon your Church the rays of your glory, that it may be seen as the gate of salvation open to all nations. Let cries of joy and exultation ring out from its tents, to celebrate the wonder of Christ's resurrection.

Antiphon:  I shall proclaim your goodness Lord, for you have answered me, alleluia.

TERCE


READING
1 John 4:16

We have come to know and to believe
in the love God has for us.
God is love,
and whoever remains in love
remains in God
and God in him.

Incline my heart according to your will, O God.
 - Speed my steps along your path.




SEXT


READING
Galatians 6:7b-8
A person will reap only what he sows.  If he sows in the field of  flesh he will reap a harvest of corruption;  but if his seedground is the spirit, he will reap everlasting life.

Your promise, Lord, will stand forever.
 - In every generation your word is true.



NONE

READING
Galatians 6:9-10
Let us not grow weary of doing good;  if we do not relax our efforts in due time we shall reap our harvest.  While we have the opportunity, let us do good to all -  but especially to those of the household of faith.  

From the depths of my heart I cry to you, Lord,
 - I shall always do your will.


COLLECT
O God, protector of those who hope in you,
without whom nothing has firm foundation, nothing is holy,
bestow in abundance your mercy upon us
and grant that, with you as our ruler and guide,
we may use the good things that pass
in such a way as to hold fast even now
to those that ever endure.
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.


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