PSALMODY

Cantor 1: Ant. 1 With his right hand God has raised him up as king and savior, alleluia.

Psalm 27
God stands by us in dangers
God now truly dwells with men (Revelation 21:3).

I

The Lord is my light and my help;
whom shall I fear?
The Lord is the stronghold of my life;
before whom shall I shrink?

When evil-doers draw near
to devour my flesh,
it is they, my enemies and foes,
who stumble and fall.

Though an army encamp against me
my heart would not fear.
Though war break out against me
even then would I trust.

There is one thing I ask of the Lord,
for this I long,
to live in the house of the Lord,
all the days of my life,
to savor the sweetness of the Lord,
to behold his tem·ple.

For there he keeps me safe in his tent
in the day of evil.
He hides me in the shelter of his tent,
on a rock he sets me safe.

And now my head shall be raised †
above my foes who surround me
and I shall offer within his tent
a sacrifice of joy.                                                                                    
I will sing and make music for the Lord.

Presider: Glory to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit:
All: as it was in the beginning, is now, and will be for ever. Amen. 

All: Ant. With his right hand God has raised him up as king and savior, alleluia.

Cantor 2: Ant. 2 I believe that I shall see the goodness of the Lord in the land of the living, alleluia.

II

Some rose to present lies and false evidence against Jesus (Mark 14:57).

O Lord, hear my voice when I call;
have mercy and answer.
Of you my heart has spoken:
“Se·ek his face.”

It is your face, O Lord, that I seek;
hide not your face.
Dismiss not your servant in anger;
you have been my help.

Do not abandon or forsake me,
O God my help!
Though father and mother forsake me,
the Lord will receive me.

Instruct me, Lord, in your way;
on an e·ven path lead me.
When they lie in ambush protect me
from my en·emy’s greed.
False witnesses rise against me,
breath·ing out fury.

I am sure I shall see the Lord’s goodness
in the land of the living.
Hope in him, hold firm and take heart.
Hope in the Lord!

Presider: Glory to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit:
All: as it was in the beginning, is now, and will be for ever. Amen. 

 

Psalm Prayer

Father, you protect and strengthen those who hope in you; you heard the cry of your Son and kept him safe in your tent in the day of evil. Grant that your servants who seek your face in time of trouble may see your goodness in the land of the living.

All: Ant. 2 I believe that I shall see the goodness of the Lord in the land of the living, alleluia.

Cantor 1: Ant. 3 From him, through him, and in him all things exist: glory to him for ever, alleluia.

Canticle – Colossians 1:12-20
Christ the first-born of all creation and the first-born from the dead

Let us give thanks to the Father †
for having made you worthy
to share the lot of the saints in light.

He rescued us
from the power of darkness
and brought us
into the kingdom of his beloved Son.
Through him we have redemption,
the forgiveness of our sins.

He is the image of the in·vis·i·ble God,
the first-born of all creatures.
In him everything in heaven and on earth was created,
things visible and in·vis·i·ble.

All were created through him;
all were created for him.
He is before all else that is.
In him everything continues in being.

It is he who is head of the body, the church;
he who is the beginning,
the first-born of the dead,
so that primacy may be his in everything.

It pleased God to make absolute fullness reside in him
and, by means of him, to reconcile everything in his person,
both on earth and in the heavens,
making peace through the blood of his cross.

Presider: Glory to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit:
All:  as it was in the beginning, is now, and will be for ever. Amen. 

 

All: Ant. 3  From him, through him, and in him all things exist: glory to him for ever, alleluia.

Presider: READING Hebrews 7:24-27 

Jesus, because he remains forever, has a priesthood which does not pass away. Therefore he is always able to save those who approach God through him, since he forever lives to make intercession for them. It was fitting that we should have such a high priest: holy, innocent, undefiled, separated from sinners, higher than the heavens. Unlike the other high priests, he has no need to offer sacrifice day after day, first for his own sins and then for those of the people; he did that once for all when he offered himself.

Sacred Silence (indicated by a bell) A moment to reflect and receive in our hearts the full resonance of the voice of the Holy Spirit and to unite our personal prayer more closely with the word of God and public voice of the Church.

Give to those who govern us the spirit of justice and peace,
— so that the human family may live in harmony.

Guide our days in the way of salvation,

Lord Jesus, you live for ever; hear our prayer.

 

Presider invites all to pray the Lord’s Prayer.

Our Father who art in heaven,
hallowed be thy name.
Thy kingdom come.
Thy will be done on earth,
as it is in heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread,
and forgive us our trespasses,
as we forgive those who trespass against us,
and lead us not into temptation,
but deliver us from evil.

 

Presider: Concluding Prayer

O God,
restorer and lover of innocence,
direct the hearts of your servants towards yourself,
that those you have set free from the darkness
of unbelief may never stray from the light of your truth.
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.
— Amen.

protect us from all evil and bring us to everlasting life.
