Prayer for the Evening

Our prayer for the evening is for may us, people on earth to do the works of justice and holiness in every walk of life.

Let us thank the Lord with all our hearts

in the meeting of the just and their assembly!

 

Glory to the Father, and to the Son,

and to the Holy Spirit, as it was in the beginning,

is now, and will be forever. Amen. Alleluia!

 

HYMN

 

God, we praise you! [God], we bless you!

God, we name you sovereign Lord!

Mighty King whom angels worship,

Father, by your church, adored:

All creation shows your glory,

Heaven and earth draw near your throne,

Singing Holy, Holy, Holy,

Lord of hosts and God alone.

 

True apostles, faithful prophets,

Saints who set the world ablaze,

Martyrs, once unknown, unheeded,

Join one growing song of praise,

While your Church on earth confesses

One majestic Trinity:

Father, Son, and Holy Spirit,

God, our hope eternally.

 

PSALM 111

 

Who, then, is the faithful and prudent servant, whom the master has put in charge of his household to distribute to them their food at the proper time? (Mt 24:45)

“Justice” and “truth” are abstract words. When we remember the upright, just, and truthful people of our tradition and our own acquaintance, the words acquire faces. God does great works through the wise and the holy, for the nourishment of a world hungry for compassion and love.

 

I will thank the Lord with all my heart

in the meeting of the just and their assembly.

Great are the works of the Lord;

to be pondered by all who love them.

 

Majestic and glorious his work,

his justice stands firm forever.

He makes us remember his wonders.

The Lord is compassionate and loving.

 

He gives food to those who fear him;

keeps his covenant ever in mind.

He has shown his might to his people

by giving them the lands of the nations.

 

His works are justice and truth:

his precepts are all of them sure,

standing firm forever and ever:

they are made in uprightness and truth.

 

He has sent deliverance to his people

and established his covenant forever.

Holy his name, to be feared.

 

To fear the Lord is the first stage of wisdom;

all who do so prove themselves wise.

His praise shall last forever!

 

Glory to the Father….

 

Word of God (Micah 6:8)

 

You have been told, O man, what is good,/ and what the Lord requires of you:/ Only to do right and to love goodness,/ and to walk humbly with your God.

Walk on the way of duty,/ along the paths of justice! (cf. Prv 8:20)

 

Te Deum

 

On the way of wisdom, I direct you,/ I lead you on straightforward paths. (Prv 4:11)

 

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 praises you.

The noble fellowship of prophets praises you.

The white-robed army of martyrs praises 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 spurn 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.

 

Intercessions

 

To the all-holy God, let us pray through the intercession of all the saints:

R/Great are your works, O Lord!

Your justice stands firm forever:

– may your people do the works of justice and holiness in every walk of life. R/

You are compassion and love:

– may your people bring your life-giving love to all nations. R/

You give food to those who fear you and to all the ­hungry:

– may we, your people, share what we have with those who have not. R/

(Personal intentions)

Our Father….

May the eyes of our hearts be enlightened, that we may know what is the hope that belongs to the Lord’s call, what are the riches of glory in his inheritance among the holy ones. Amen. (cf. Eph 1:18)

 

Marian Antiphon

Rejoice, O Mother of God, O Virgin Immaculate;

[rejoice], you who received joy from an angel;

rejoice, you who bore the glory of the light everlasting;

[rejoice], O Mother, rejoice,

O holy Virgin Mother of God;

you alone a maiden Mother,

all creation praises you, the Mother of light;

may you be for us, we beseech you,

a perpetual intercessor.

 

SALVE REGINA

 

Salve, Regina, mater misericordiae;

vita, dulcedo, et spes nostra, salve.

Ad te clamamus, exsules filii Evae.

Ad te suspiramus, gementes et flentes

in hac lacrimarum valle.

 

Eia ergo, advocata nostra,

illos tuos misericordes oculos

ad nos converte.

Et Iesum, benedictum fructum ventris tui,

nobis post hoc exsilium ostende.

O clemens, O pia, O dulcis Virgo Maria.

 

HAIL HOLY QUEEN

 

Hail, holy Queen, mother of mercy,

our life, our sweetness, and our hope.

To you do we cry,

poor banished children of Eve.

To you do we send up our sighs,

mourning and weeping in this valley of tears.

Turn then, O most gracious advocate,

your eyes of mercy toward us,

and after this our exile

show unto us the blessed fruit of your womb, Jesus.

O clement, O loving, O sweet Virgin Mary.

 

V/ Pray for us, O holy Mother of God,

R/ That we may be made worthy of the promises of Christ.

 

Alma Redemptoris Mater

 

Alma Redemptoris Mater, quae pervia caeli

porta manes, et stella maris, succurre cadenti,

surgere qui curat, populo: tu quae genuisti,

natura mirante, tuum sanctum Genitorem,

Virgo prius ac posterius, Gabrielis ab ore

sumens illud Ave, peccatorum miserere.

 

Loving mother of the Redeemer

 

Loving mother of the Redeemer,

gate of heaven, star of the sea,

assist your people who have fallen yet strive

to rise again.

To the wonderment of nature, you bore your Creator,

yet remained a virgin after as before.

You who received Gabriel’s joyful greeting,

have pity on us, poor sinners.

 

V/ Pray for us, O holy Mother of God,

R/ That we may be made worthy of the promises of Christ.
