Prayer for the Evening (Saturday, January 22)

Prayer for the Evening


Vigil of the Third Sunday in Ordinary Time


It is the Lord in whom we trust.

Come, let us adore him!


Glory to the Father, and to the Son,

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

is now, and will be for ever. Amen. Alleluia!




O thou immortal holy Light,

Blest Trinity in unity,

Forever infinite in might,

We sinful creatures worship thee:


As from the Father infinite

His Son and Word eternal came,

So too from him the Paraclete

Proceeds, in Deity the same.


O thou most holy, wise, and just,

O Lord of nature, God of grace,

Grant that as now in thee we trust

So may we see thee face to face.


Psalm 31:2-6


No longer will I hide my face from them, for I have poured out my spirit upon the house of Israel, says the Lord God. (Ez 39:29)

To dwell in the Spirit of the Lord and to be receivers of the divine life is the ultimate goal of the spiritual life. Yet this goal is so close to us. It is within our souls. We need only to enter into the holiness of the Trinity dwelling within us and fully embrace it. It is the relationship that God yearns to have with each one of us. Let us turn our lives from all that is not of God and follow the way of holiness, and be safe within his loving arms.


In you, O Lord, I take refuge.

Let me never be put to shame.

In your justice, set me free,

hear me and speedily rescue me.


Be a rock of refuge for me,

a mighty stronghold to save me,

for you are my rock, my stronghold.

For your name’s sake, lead me and guide me.


Release me from the snares they have hidden

for you are my refuge, Lord.

Into your hands I commend my spirit.

It is you who will redeem me, Lord.


Glory to the Father….


Word of God. Isaiah 61:1-3


The spirit of the Lord God is upon me,/ because the Lord has anointed me;/ He has sent me to bring glad tidings to the lowly,/ to heal the brokenhearted,/ To proclaim liberty to the captives/ and release to the prisoners,/ To announce a year of favor from the Lord/ and a day of vindication by our God,/ to comfort all who mourn;/ To place on those who mourn in Zion/ a diadem instead of ashes,/ To give them oil of gladness in place of mourning,/ a glorious mantle instead of a listless spirit./ They will be called oaks of justice,/ planted by the Lord to show his glory.

I will give them a new heart and put a new spirit within them; I will remove the stony heart from their bodies, and replace it with a natural heart. (Ez 11:19)


Canticle of Mary


The Lord is my refuge and my strength. (cf. Ps 31)


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…




The Lord keeps us safe from all harm and leads us to holiness. Let us pray to him.

R/O God, pour your Spirit upon us.

Lord Jesus, you wish to be our intimate friend:

– may we accept that friendship you offer us. R/

Lord Jesus, you give us the gift of your Spirit:

– may our spirits conform themselves to you. R/

Lord Jesus, you invite us to dwell with you:

– may we never leave the safety of your house. R/

Personal intentions

Our Father….

May grace and peace in Jesus Christ be with all those beloved of God! Amen. (cf. Rom 1:7)


Marian Antiphon


Blessed Mother of God, Mary, perpetual Virgin,

temple of the Lord, shrine of the Holy Spirit,

you alone without compare were pleasing

to the Lord Jesus Christ;

pray for the people, intervene for the clergy;

intercede for devout women.


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,

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.


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.
