PSALMODY

Antiphon: Who is this that comes forth like the dawn, as beautiful as the moon, as resplendent as the sun?

Psalm 63:2-9
A soul thirsting for God
Whoever has left the darkness of sin yearns for God

O God, you are my God, for you I long; *
for you my soul is thirsting.
My body pines for you *
like a dry, weary land without water.
So I gaze on you in the sanctuary *
to see your strength and your glory.

For your love is better than life, *
my lips will speak your praise.
So I will bless you all my life, *
in your name I will lift up my hands.
My soul shall be filled as with a banquet, *
my mouth shall praise you with joy.

On my bed I remember you. *
On you I muse through the night
for you have been my help; *
in the shadow of your wings I rejoice.
My soul clings to you; *
your right hand holds me fast. Glory...

Antiphon:Who is this that comes forth like the dawn, as beautiful as the moon, as resplendent as the sun?

Antiphon: O Virgin Mary, how great your cause for joy; God found you worthy to bear Christ our Savior.

Psalm 149
The joy of God's holy people

Let the sons of the Church, the children of the new people, rejoice in Christ, their King (Hesychius)

Sing a new song to the Lord,
his praise in the assembly of the faithful.
Let Israel rejoice in its maker,
let Zion’s sons exult in their king.
Let them praise his name with dancing
and make music with timbrel and harp.

For the Lord takes delight in his people.
He crowns the poor with salvation.
Let the faithful rejoice in their glory,
shout for joy and take their rest.
Let the praise of God be on their lips
and a two-edged sword in their hand,

to deal out vengeance to the nations
and punishment on all the peoples;
to bind their kings in chains
and their nobles in fetters of iron;
to carry out the sentence pre-ordained;
this honor is for all his faithful. Glory...

Psalm Prayer: Let Israel rejoice in you, Lord, and acknowledge you as creator and redeemer. We put our trust in your faithfulness and proclaim the wonderful truths of salvation. May your loving kindness embrace us now and for ever.

Antiphon: O Virgin Mary, how great your cause for joy; God found you worthy to bear Christ our Savior.


READING          Zechariah 2:14-17
Sing and rejoice, O daughter Zion! See I am coming to dwell among you, says the Lord. Many nations shall join themselves to the Lord on that day, and they shall be his people, and he will dwell among you, and you shall know that the Lord of hosts has sent me to you. The Lord will possess Judah as his portion in the holy land, and he will again choose Jerusalem. Silence, all people, in the presence of the Lord! for the Lord stirs forth from his holy dwelling.


RESPONSORY
I lift up my eyes toward the mountains, from where shall help come to me?
    -    I lift up my eyes toward the mountains, from where shall help come to me?

Lord, for you I rise early, give me a sign of your favor.
    -    From where shall help come to me?

Glory to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit,
    -    I lift up my eyes toward the mountains, from where shall help come to me?


BENEDICTUS (Canticle of Zechariah)
Antiphon: Go up onto a high mountain, Jerusalem, herald of good news! Say to the cities of Judah: Here is your God! Like a shepherd he feeds his flock.


INTERCESSIONS
Let us praise God, our all-powerful Father, and say:

                     Lord, Creator of life, hear us.

Blessed are you, Lord of the universe. In your great goodness you sent us the Mother of your Son,
 – to call us to faith and make us members of your holy people.

We bless you, Lord, because you have hidden your message from those who are wise and prudent in the ways of this world,
 – and have revealed it to the lowly and the poor.

You call us to be your worthy and trusted messengers,
 – may we carry to all peoples and nations your words of love and peace.

By the presence of Mary, you made the desert bloom with flowers,
 – may the Blessed Virgin Mary’s love transform us into the image of Christ.

Make us attentive to the message of Our Lady of Guadalupe,
 – so that we may deserve to meet Mary along the path of our lives.


Our Father…



COLLECT

who placed your people under the singular protection
of your Son's most holy Mother,
