Agios o Theos, Agios Ischyros, Agios Athanatos,
Eleison imas.
Sanctus Deus, Sanctus Fortis, Sanctus Immortális,
miserére nobis.
Holy God, Holy and Mighty, Holy Immortal One,

Of whom are all things, + through whom are all things, in whom are all things:
to Him be glory for ever.


Antiphon: Father, Son and Holy Spirit, one God: come let us adore him.

Psalm 95

1 Venite, laudemus Dóminum, *
iubilemus petrae Iesu nóstro.

2 Praeoccupemus vultum eius in actione gratiárum, *
in canticis iubilemús ei.

3 Quoniam fortis et magnus Dóminus, *
et rex magnus super omnes déos.

4 In cuius manu fundamenta térrae, *
et excelsa montium ipsiús sunt.

5 Cuius est mare ipse, enim fecit íllud, *
et siccam manus eius plasmavérunt.

6 Venite, adoremus et cúrvemur, *
flectamus genua ante faciem Domini factoris nóstri

7 Quia ipse est Deus nóster *
et nos populus pascuae eius et grex manus éius.

8 Hodie si vocem eius audierítis. *
nolite indurare corda véstra.

Antiphon: Father, Son and Holy Spirit, one God: come let us adore him.

Most Holy Trinity, One God,
Enthroned in splendor and in light,
Your love holds every human heart,
Unending praise is but your due.

O Father, Essence of all life,
Bestowing it upon mankind,
Help us by faith your gifts to win,
Your image meriting to bear.

Clear brightness of Eternal Light,
O God the Son, who shared our state,
Make us true branches of your Vine
That strive to yield abundant fruit.

O Holy Spirit, Fire of Love,
Whose gentle force directs the world,
Renew our minds at dawn of day,
And prompt our wills to do your work.

O Trinity, delightful Guest,
Abide with us in closest bond,
Until we sing to you above,
In gratitude and joy untold. Amen.

READING     1 Corinthians 12:4-6
There are different gifts but the same Spirit; there are different ministries but the same Lord; there are different works but the same God who accomplishes all of them in everyone.


Antiphon 1: Glory to you, O Trinity co-equal, onely Deity, before the worlds began to be, and now and through eternity.

Ascribe to the LORD, you gods, *
     ascribe to the LORD glory and strength.
Ascribe to the LORD the glory due his Name; *
     worship the LORD in the beauty of holiness.
The voice of the LORD is upon the waters;
the God of glory thunders; *
     the LORD is upon the mighty waters.
The voice of the LORD is a powerful voice; *
     the voice of the LORD is a voice of splendor.
The voice of the LORD breaks the cedar trees; *
     the LORD breaks the cedars of Lebanon;
He makes Lebanon skip like a calf, *
     and Mount Hermon like a young wild ox.
The voice of the LORD splits the flames of fire;
the voice of the LORD shakes the wilderness; *
     the LORD shakes the wilderness of Kadesh.
The voice of the LORD makes the oak trees writhe *
     and strips the forests bare.
And in the temple of the LORD *
     all are crying, "Glory!"
The LORD sits enthroned above the flood; *
     the LORD sits enthroned as King for evermore.
The LORD shall give strength to his people; *
     the LORD shall give his people the blessing of peace.

Antiphon 1 Glory to you, O Trinity co-equal, onely Deity, before the worlds began to be, and now and through eternity.

Antiphon 2 Glory and unending glory to God the Father and to the Son and to the Holy Paraclete, through ages everlasting.

The LORD is King;
let the earth rejoice; *
     let the multitude of the isles be glad.
Clouds and darkness are round about him, *
     righteousness and justice are the foundations of his throne.
A fire goes before him *
     and burns up his enemies on every side.
His lightnings light up the world; *
     the earth sees it and is afraid.
The mountains melt like wax at the presence of the LORD, *
     at the presence of the Lord of the whole earth.
The heavens declare his righteousness, *
     and all the peoples see his glory.
Confounded be all who worship carved images
and delight in false gods! *
     Bow down before him, all you gods.
Zion hears and is glad, and the cities of Judah rejoice, *
     because of your judgments, O LORD.
For you are the LORD,
most high over all the earth; *
     you are exalted far above all gods.
The LORD loves those who hate evil; *
     he preserves the lives of his saints
     and delivers them from the hand of the wicked.
Light has sprung up for the righteous, *
     and joyful gladness for those who are truehearted.
Rejoice in the LORD, you righteous, *
     and give thanks to his holy Name.

Antiphon 2 Glory and unending glory to God the Father and to the Son and to the Holy Paraclete, through ages everlasting

Antiphon 3 Let praise and glory resound from the lips of all to the Father and the Sole-begotten; and equal praise be given for ever to the Holy Spirit.

The LORD is King;
let the people tremble; *
     he is enthroned upon the cherubim;
     let the earth shake.
The LORD is great in Zion; *
     he is high above all peoples.
Let them confess his Name, which is great and awesome; *
     he is the Holy One.
"O mighty King, lover of justice,
you have established equity; *
     you have executed justice and righteousness in Jacob."
Proclaim the greatness of the LORD our God
and fall down before his footstool; *
     he is the Holy One.
Moses and Aaron among his priests,
     and Samuel among those who call upon his Name, *
     they called upon the LORD, and he answered them.
He spoke to them out of the pillar of cloud; *
     they kept his testimonies and the decree that he gave them.
"O LORD our God, you answered them indeed; *
     you were a God who forgave them,
     yet punished them for their evil deeds."
Proclaim the greatness of the LORD our God
and worship him upon his holy hill; *
     for the LORD our God is the Holy One.
Antiphon 3 Let praise and glory resound from the lips of all to the Father and the Sole-begotten; and equal praise be given for ever to the Holy Spirit.


Job 38:1-11;42:1-5

And the Lord said:
‘Where were you when I laid the foundation of the earth?
   Tell me, if you have understanding.
Who determined its measurements—surely you know!
   Or who stretched the line upon it?
On what were its bases sunk,
   or who laid its cornerstone
when the morning stars sang together
   and all the heavenly beings shouted for joy?

‘Or who shut in the sea with doors
   when it burst out from the womb?—
when I made the clouds its garment,
   and thick darkness its swaddling band,
and prescribed bounds for it,
   and set bars and doors,
and said, “Thus far shall you come, and no farther,
   and here shall your proud waves be stopped”?

Then Job answered the Lord:
‘I know that you can do all things,
   and that no purpose of yours can be thwarted.
“Who is this that hides counsel without knowledge?”
Therefore I have uttered what I did not understand,
   things too wonderful for me, which I did not know.
“Hear, and I will speak;
   I will question you, and you declare to me.”
I had heard of you by the hearing of the ear,
   but now my eye sees you;
therefore I despise myself,
   and repent in dust and ashes.’

Te Deum Laudamus

You are God: we praise you;
You are the Lord; we acclaim you;
You are the eternal Father:
All creation worships you.
To you all angels, all the powers of heaven,
Cherubim and Seraphim, sing in endless praise:
Holy, holy, holy Lord, God of power and might,
heaven and earth are full of your glory.
The glorious company of apostles praise you.
The noble fellowship of prophets praise you.
The white-robed army of martyrs praise you.
Throughout the world the holy Church acclaims you;
Father, of majesty unbounded,
your true and only Son, worthy of all worship,
and the Holy Spirit, advocate and guide.

You, Christ, are the king of glory,
the eternal Son of the Father.
When you became man to set us free
you did not shun the Virgin's womb.
You overcame the sting of death
and opened the kingdom of heaven to all believers.
You are seated at God's right hand in glory.
We believe that you will come and be our judge.
Come then, Lord, and help your people,
bought with the price of your own blood,
and bring us with your saints
to glory everlasting.


Revelation 19:4-16

And the twenty-four elders and the four living creatures fell down and worshipped God who is seated on the throne, saying,
‘Amen. Hallelujah!’

 And from the throne came a voice saying,
‘Praise our God,
   all you his servants,
and all who fear him,
   small and great.’

Then I heard what seemed to be the voice of a great multitude, like the sound of many waters and like the sound of mighty thunder-peals, crying out,
For the Lord our God
   the Almighty reigns.
Let us rejoice and exult
   and give him the glory,
for the marriage of the Lamb has come,
   and his bride has made herself ready;
to her it has been granted to be clothed
   with fine linen, bright and pure’—
for the fine linen is the righteous deeds of the saints.

 And the angel said to me, ‘Write this: Blessed are those who are invited to the marriage supper of the Lamb.’ And he said to me, ‘These are true words of God.’ Then I fell down at his feet to worship him, but he said to me, ‘You must not do that! I am a fellow-servant with you and your comrades who hold the testimony of Jesus. Worship God! For the testimony of Jesus is the spirit of prophecy.’

 Then I saw heaven opened, and there was a white horse! Its rider is called Faithful and True, and in righteousness he judges and makes war. His eyes are like a flame of fire, and on his head are many diadems; and he has a name inscribed that no one knows but himself. He is clothed in a robe dipped in blood, and his name is called The Word of God. And the armies of heaven, wearing fine linen, white and pure, were following him on white horses. From his mouth comes a sharp sword with which to strike down the nations, and he will rule them with a rod of iron; he will tread the wine press of the fury of the wrath of God the Almighty. On his robe and on his thigh he has a name inscribed, ‘King of kings and Lord of lords’.

All praise, all glory to you, O Holy Trinity.
 - All praise, all glory to you, O Holy Trinity.
May we give thanks to you for ever,
 - O Holy Trinity.
Glory to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit,
 - All praise, all glory to you, O Holy Trinity.

(Canticle of Zechariah)
Antiphon: O holy, undivided Trinity, Creator and Ruler of all that exists, may all praise be yours now, for ever, and for ages unending.

Let us give all honor and glory to the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, as we cry out with joy:

                    Glory to the Father, and to the Son and to the Holy Spirit.

Holy Father, send your Holy Spirit to us who know not how to pray as we ought,
 - that he may help us in our frailty, and ask for us those gifts which will make us pleasing to you.

Christ, Son of the living God, you asked the Father to send the Holy Spirit upon your Church,
 - make us worthy to have this Spirit of Truth with us always.

Come, Holy Spirit, that we may show your fruit in our lives: charity, peace, equanimity, kindness, generosity,
 - long-suffering, patience, faithfulness, modesty, self-control, chastity.

Father all powerful, you have sent the Spirit of your Son into our hearts, so that we cry: Abba, Father,
 - make us submissive to your Spirit, that we may be your heirs, and co-heirs with Christ.

Christ Jesus, you sent the Paraclete who proceeds from the Father to bear witness to you,
 - enable us to be your witnesses before men.

Blessed are you, all-powerful Father, your holiness is infinite and you offer us the gift of sharing in it.

Eternal is your love, alleluia!

Blessed are you, beloved Son of the Father: you have given us the gift of becoming the children of God

Eternal is your love, alleluia!

Blessed are you, Spirit of the Father and the Son: you dwell within us that we might live in God.

Eternal is your love, alleluia!

Blessed are you, God One and Holy: you are the life of the living and the dead.

Eternal is your love, alleluia!

Our Father...

God our Father, who by sending into the world
the Word of truth and the Spirit of sanctification
made known to the human race your wondrous mystery,
grant us, we pray, that in professing the true faith,
we may acknowledge the Trinity of eternal glory
and adore your Unity, powerful in majesty.
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.

Almighty and everlasting God, you have given to us your servants grace, by the confession of a true faith, to acknowledge the glory of the eternal Trinity, and in the power of your divine Majesty to worship the Unity: Keep us steadfast in this faith and worship, and bring us at last to see you in your one and eternal glory, O Father; who with the Son and the Holy Spirit live and reign, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.

The grace of the Lord Jesus Christ and the love of God and the fellowship of the Holy Spirit be with all of us! Amen.
