ENTRANCE ANTIPHON

Come, let us adore the Lord: let us bow down before Him who made us

for He is our Lord and our God.

 

In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit.

Amen.

The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, 

and the love of God, 

and the communion of the Holy Spirit 

be with you all.

Brethren (brothers and sisters), let us acknowledge our sins, 

and so prepare ourselves to celebrate the sacred mysteries.

I confess to almighty God 

and to you, my brothers and sisters, 

that I have greatly sinned, 

in my thoughts and in my words,

in what I have done and in what I have failed to do,

[All strike their breast]

through my fault, through my fault, 

through my most grievous fault; 

therefore I ask blessed Mary ever-Virgin, 

all the Angels and Saints,

and you, my brothers and sisters,

to pray for me to the Lord our God.

 

May almighty God have mercy on us, 

forgive us our sins, 

and bring us to everlasting life.

Amen.

Glory to God in the highest, 

and on earth peace to people of good will. 

We praise you, 

we bless you, 

we adore you, 

we glorify you,

we give you thanks for your great glory, 

Lord God, heavenly King, 

O God, almighty Father. 

Lord Jesus Christ, only Begotten Son, 

Lord God, Lamb of God, Son of the Father, 

you take away the sins of the world,

have mercy on us; 

you take away the sins of the world, 

receive our prayer; 

you are seated at the right hand of the Father, 

have mercy on us. 

For you alone are the Holy One, 

you alone are the Lord, 

you alone are the Most High, 

Jesus Christ, 

with the Holy Spirit, 

in the glory of God the Father. 

Amen.

COLLECT

Let us pray.

O Father, pour out your renewing Spirit on your faithful people so that, justified and saved by your grace, we await with sincere hope the inheritance of the promised kingdom. 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.

 

LITURGY OF THE WORD

FIRST READING

A reading from the prophet Isaiah (56:1-7)

Thus says the Lord: «Observe what is right, do what is just, for my salvation is about to come, my justice, about to be revealed.» Happy is the one who does this, whoever holds fast to it: Keeping the sabbath without profaning it, keeping one’s hand from doing any evil. The foreigner joined to the Lord should not say, «The Lord will surely exclude me from his people;» nor should the eunuch say, «See, I am a dry tree.» For thus says the Lord: «To the eunuchs who keep my sabbaths, who choose what pleases me, and who hold fast to my covenant, I will give them, in my house and within my walls, a monument and a name better than sons and daughters; an eternal name, which shall not be cut off, will I give them. And foreigners who join themselves to the Lord, to minister to him, to love the name of the Lord, to become his servants – All who keep the sabbath without profaning it and hold fast to my covenant, them I will bring to my holy mountain and make them joyful in my house of prayer; their burnt offerings and their sacrifices will be acceptable on my altar, for my house shall be called a house of prayer for all peoples.»

The Word of the Lord.

Thanks be to God.

PSALM

Psalm 118 (119)

R. O Lord, I keep your words in my heart.

How can the young keep his way without fault?

Only by observing your words.

With all my heart I seek you;

do not let me stray from your commandments. R.

In my heart I treasure your promise,

that I may not sin against you.

Blessed are you, O Lord;

teach me your statutes.

With my lips I recite

all the judgments you have spoken. R.

I find joy in the way of your testimonies

more than in all riches.

I will ponder your precepts

and consider your paths.

In your statutes I take delight;

I will never forget your word. R.

EPISTLE

The letter of saint Paul to the Romans (13:8-14a)

Brothers: Let each of us please our neighbor for the good, for building up. For Christ did not please himself; but, as it is written, «The insults of those who insult you fall upon me.» For whatever was written previously was written for our instruction, that by endurance and by the encouragement of the scriptures we might have hope. May the God of endurance and encouragement grant you to think in harmony with one another, in keeping with Christ Jesus, that with one accord you may with one voice glorify the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ. Welcome one another, then, as Christ welcomed you, for the glory of God.

The Word of the Lord. 

Thanks be to God.

GOSPEL ACCLAMATION

Alleluia.

Whoever loves his brother remains in the light,

and there is nothing in him to cause a fall. 

Alleluia.

GOSPEL

The Lord be with you.

And with your spirit.

A reading from the holy Gospel according to Luke (10:25-37)

Glory to you, O Lord.

In that time, The Lord Jesus said: «To you who hear I say, love your enemies, do good to those who hate you, bless those who curse you, pray for those who mistreat you. To the person who strikes you on one cheek, offer the other one as well, and from the person who takes your cloak, do not withhold even your tunic. Give to everyone who asks of you, and from the one who takes what is yours do not demand it back. Do to others as you would have them do to you. For if you love those who love you, what credit is that to you? Even sinners love those who love them. And if you do good to those who do good to you, what credit is that to you? Even sinners do the same. If you lend money to those from whom you expect repayment, what credit [is that to you? Even sinners lend to sinners, and get back the same amount. But rather, love your enemies and do good to them, and lend expecting nothing back; then your reward will be great and you will be children of the Most High, for he himself is kind to the ungrateful and the wicked. Be merciful, just as [also] your Father is merciful. Stop judging and you will not be judged. Stop condemning and you will not be condemned. Forgive and you will be forgiven. Give and gifts will be given to you; a good measure, packed together, shaken down, and overflowing, will be poured into your lap. For the measure with which you measure will in return be measured out to you.»

The Gospel of the Lord.

Praise to you, Lord Jesus Christ.

AFTER THE GOSPEL

Lord, withdraw your fury;

be merciful towards the sins of your people,

as you swore by yourself, O God.

PRAYERS OF THE FAITHFUL

Dear brothers and sisters, filled with paschal joy,

let us pray more earnestly to God that He, who graciously listened

to the prayers and supplications of his beloved Son,

may now be pleased to look upon us in our lowliness.

Lord in your mercy,

Hear our prayer.

CONCLUSION OF THE LITURGY OF THE WORD

Hear, O God of untiring love, the petitions of your Church in prayer: protect and comfort her now with the gifts of your providence and prepare for her the treasure of life everlasting. Through Christ our Lord.

THE LITURGY OF THE EUCHARIST

Blessed are you, Lord God of all creation,

for through your goodness we have received 

the bread we offer you:

fruit of the earth and work of human hands,

it will become for us the bread of life.

Blessed be God forever.

Blessed are you, Lord God of all creation, 

for through your goodness we have received 

this wine we offer you:

 fruit of the vine and work of human hands, 

it will become our spiritual drink.

Blessed be God forever.

PROFESSION OF FAITH

I believe in one God, 

the Father almighty, 

maker of heaven and earth, 

of all things visible and invisible. 

I believe in one Lord Jesus Christ, 

the Only begotten Son of God, 

born of the Father before all ages. 

God from God, Light from Light, 

true God from true God, 

begotten, not made, consubstantial with the Father; 

through him all things were made. 

For us men and for our salvation 

he came down from heaven, 

and by the Holy Spirit was incarnate of the Virgin Mary, 

and became man. 

For our sake he was crucified under Pontius Pilate;

he suffered death and was buried,

and rose again on the third day

in accordance with the Scriptures.

He ascended into heaven

and is seated at the right hand of the Father.

He will come again in glory 

to judge the living and the dead

and his kingdom will have no end.

We believe in the Holy Spirit, the Lord, the giver of life,

who proceeds from the Father and the Son,

with the Father and the Son is adored and glorified.

who has spoken through the prophets.

I believe in one, holy, catholic and apostolic Church.

I confess one Baptism for the forgiveness of sins

and I look forward to the resurrection of the dead

and the life of the world to come. Amen.

PRAYER OVER THE GIFTS

Transform and exalt, O God, with your sanctifying grace the humble gifts that we offer you in adoration; preserve the reward of eternal inheritance for those who are nourished by it with a pure soul. Through Christ our Lord.

PREFACE

The Lord be with you.

And with your spirit.

Lift up your hearts. 

We lift them up to the Lord.

Let us give thanks to the Lord our God.

It is right and just.

It is truly right and just, our duty and our salvation,

always, here and everywhere to give you thanks

Lord, holy Father, almighty and eternal God.

For you so loved the world that in your mercy you sent us the Redeemer, to live like us in all things but sin, so that you might love in us what you loved in your Son, by whose obedience we have been restored to those gifts of yours that, by sinning, we had lost in disobedience. 

And so, Lord, with all the Angels and Saints, we, too, give you thanks, as in exultation we acclaim:

Holy, holy, holy, Lord God of hosts.

Heaven and earth are full of your glory.

Hosanna in the highest.

Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord.

Hosanna in the highest.

EUCHARISTIC PRAYER

You are indeed Holy, O Lord,

The fount of all holiness.

Make holy, therefore, these gifts, we pray,

by sending down your Spirit upon them like the dewfall,

so that they may become for us

the Body and Blood of our Lord Jesus Christ.

At the time he was betrayed

And entered willingly into his Passion,

he took bread and, giving thanks, broke it,

and gave it to his disciples, saying:

Take this, all of you, and eat of it,

For this is my Body,

Which will be given up for you.

In a similar way, when supper was ended,

he took the chalice

and, once more giving thanks,

he gave it to his disciples, saying:

Take this, all of you, and drink from it,

for this is the chalice of my Blood,

the Blood of the new and eternal covenant,

Which will be poured out for you and for many 

for the forgiveness of sins. 

Do this in memory of me.

The mystery of faith:

We proclaim your Death, O Lord, 

and profess your Resurrection 

until you come again.

Therefore, as we celebrate

the memorial of his Death and Resurrection,

we offer you, Lord,

the Bread of life and the Chalice of salvation,

giving thanks that you have held us worthy

to be in your presence and minister to you.

Humbly we pray

that, partaking of the Body and Blood of Christ,

we may be gathered into one by the Holy Spirit.

Remember, Lord, your Church,

spread throughout the world,

and bring her to the fullness of charity,

together with Francis our Pope

and Mario our Bishop, 

and all the clergy.

Remember also our brothers and sisters

who have fallen asleep in the hope of the resurrection,

and all who have died in your mercy:

welcome them into the light of your face.

Have mercy on us all, we pray,

that with the Blessed Virgin Mary, Mother of God,

with blessed Joseph, her Spouse

with the blessed Apostles,

and all the Saints who have pleased you throughout the ages,

we may merit to be co-heirs to eternal life,

and may praise and glorify you

through your Son, Jesus Christ.

Through him, and with him, and in him,

O God, almighty Father,

In the unity of the Holy Spirit,

all glory and honour is yours,

For ever and ever

Amen.

THE COMMUNION RITE

AT THE BREAKING OF THE BREAD

I will announce, O God, your marvellous deeds,

I delight in you and rejoice,

I sing hymns unto your name, Almighty.

As the Saviour’s command 

and formed by divine teaching, 

we dare to say:

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.

Deliver us, Lord, we pray, from every evil, 

graciously grant peace in our days, 

that, by the help of your mercy, 

we may be always free from sin 

and safe from all distress, 

as we await the blessed hope 

and the coming of our Saviour, Jesus Christ.

For the kingdom, 

the power and the glory are yours 

now and forever.

Lord Jesus Christ, 

who said to your Apostles: 

Peace I leave you, my peace I give you, 

look not on our sins, 

but on the faith of Your Church, 

and graciously grant her peace and unity 

in accordance with your will. 

Who live and reign for ever and ever.

Amen.

The peace and communion of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you always.

And with your spirit.

Behold the Lamb of God, 

behold him who takes away the sins of the world. 

Blessed are those called to the supper of the Lamb.

Lord, I am not worthy 

that you should enter under my roof, 

but only say the word 

and my soul shall be healed.

AT HOLY COMMUNION

Life rolls on and our days draw to a close.

While there is still time, let us rise up with lamps lit to praise Christ the Lord, for the Universal Judge is coming to judge the nations.

The body of Christ

Amen

AFTER HOLY COMMUNION

Let us pray.

Surround your children with grace everlasting, O holy and living God; and, since through the fulfilment of the arcane and sublime mysteries we were nourished by Christ, victim for our salvation, grant that we may share eternal life in Heaven with Him who lives and reigns for ever and ever.

The Lord be with you.

And with your spirit.

Kyrie, eleison. Kyrie, eleison. Kyrie, eleison.

May almighty God bless you, 

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

Amen

Go in peace.

In the name of Christ.
