Glory to the Father…. Alleluia!

 

Hymn

 

Lord, from the depths I cry to you,

My supplication hear;

Lord, I, your patient servant plead

For your attentive ear.

 

I wait for God with eager eyes,

My hope is in his word;

More than the watchmen wait for dawn,

My soul waits for the Lord.

 

Let Israel hope still in the Lord,

In him is constant love;

For he his servant will redeem

And ev’ry sin remove.

 

Psalm 130

 

Lord, make haste and answer;/ for my spirit fails within me./ Do not hide your face/ lest I become like those in the grave. (Ps 143:7)

Sometimes the sense of our own sinfulness and weakness can be almost crippling. It can even push us away from God, because we feel unworthy of his love. This was Peter’s initial reaction when he experienced the holiness of Jesus, saying, “Depart from me, Lord, for I am a sinful man” (Lk 5:8). But Jesus wishes to heal the sinner. We should fall on his mercy, and again and again he will raise us up in love.

 

Out of the depths I cry to you, O Lord,

Lord, hear my voice!

O let your ears be attentive

to the voice of my pleading.

 

If you, O Lord, should mark our guilt,

Lord, who would survive?

But with you is found forgiveness:

for this we revere you.

 

My soul is waiting for the Lord,

I count on his word.

My soul is longing for the Lord

more than watchman for daybreak.

Let the watchman count on daybreak

and Israel on the Lord.

 

Because with the Lord there is mercy

and fullness of redemption,

Israel indeed he will redeem

from all its iniquity.

 

Glory to the Father….

 

Word of God. Isaiah 54:10

 

Though the mountains leave their place/ and the hills be shaken,/ My love shall never leave you/ nor my covenant of peace be shaken,/ says the Lord, who has mercy on you.

Your wickedness is removed, your sin purged.
(Is 6:7)

 

Canticle of Mary

 

Do not be afraid. (Lk 5:10)

 

My soul proclaims the greatness of the Lord,

my spirit rejoices in God my Savior

for he has looked with favor on his lowly servant.

 

From this day all generations will call me blessed:

the Almighty has done great things for me,

and holy is his Name.

 

He has mercy on those who fear him

in every generation.

 

He has shown the strength of his arm,

he has scattered the proud in their conceit.

 

He has cast down the mighty from their thrones,

and has lifted up the lowly.

 

He has filled the hungry with good things,

and the rich he has sent away empty.

 

He has come to the help of his servant Israel

for he has remembered his promise of mercy,

the promise he made to our fathers,

to Abraham and his children for ever.

 

Glory to the Father…

 

Intercessions

 

The Lord hates sin, but loves sinners and wishes to make us whole, so we pray:

R/Lord, heal us in your mercy.

When our hearts are far from you: R/

When we are trapped in the sickness of sin: R/

When we seek false loves that draw us away from you: R/

 

(Personal intentions)

 

Our Father….

 

May the Lord strengthen our hearts, to be blameless in holiness before our God and Father at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ. Amen. (cf. 1 Thes 3:13)

 

Marian Antiphon

 

Your praise, O Virgin Mary, shall not recede

from the mouths of men,

who have ever been mindful of the power of the Lord,

for whom you did not spare your life.

 

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.
