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!

Holy Spirit, Truth divine,

Dawn upon this soul of mine;

Breath of God and inward Light

Wake my spirit, clear my sight.

 

Holy Spirit, Love divine,

Glow within this heart of mine;

Kindle every high desire;

Perish self in your pure fire.

 

Holy Spirit, Power divine

Fill and nerve this will of mine;

By you may I strongly live,

Bravely bear and nobly strive.

 

Holy Spirit, Right divine,

King within my conscience reign;

Be my Lord, and I shall be

Firmly bound, forever free.

 

Psalm 105:8-15

 

Amen, I say to you, no prophet is accepted in his own native place. (Lk 4:24)

God has given to every member of the Church the offices of priest, prophet, and king. How often do we recognize the gift of prophecy in our fellow Christians? The Lord has placed them here to speak to us and contribute to our own sanctification. Let us not reject the gift of God, like those in today’s Gospel, because we see the one bringing it as “ordinary.” Rather let us recognize God’s voice in our fellow men. Let us listen for the extraordinary message that we just may hear.

 

God remembers his covenant for ever,

his promise for a thousand generations,

the covenant he made with Abraham,

the oath he swore to Isaac.

 

He confirmed it for Jacob as a law,

for Israel as a covenant forever.

He said: “I am giving you a land,

Canaan, your appointed heritage.”

 

When they were few in number,

a handful of strangers in the land,

when they wandered from country to country,

from one kingdom and nation to another,

 

he allowed no one to oppress them;

he admonished kings on their account:

“Do not touch those I have anointed;

do no harm to any of my prophets.”

 

Glory to the Father….

 

Word of God. 1 Corinthians 12:7-11

 

To each individual the manifestation of the Spirit is given for some benefit. To one is given through the Spirit the expression of wisdom; to another the expression of knowledge according to the same Spirit; to another faith by the same Spirit; to another gifts of healing by the one Spirit; to another mighty deeds; to another prophecy; to another discernment of spirits; to another varieties of tongues; to another interpretation of tongues. But one and the same Spirit produces all of these, distributing them individually to each person as he wishes.

No prophecy ever came through human will;

but rather human beings moved by the holy Spirit spoke under the influence of God. (2 Pt 1:21)

 

Canticle of Mary

 

A prophet to the nations I appointed you. (Jer 1:5)

 

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

 

Listening for the prophetic voice of God, we pray:

R/Lord Jesus, hear us.

That we may be dedicated to discerning the Lord’s will in our lives,

– and that you may see our yearning for your presence. R/

That we may listen to unexpected and ordinary revelations of God’s will,

– and that you may give us the strength to obey them. R/

That we may be faithful to the reading of Holy Scripture,

– and that we may hear your voice in our prayer. R/

 

(Personal intentions)

 

Our Father….

May our Lord Jesus Christ himself and God our Father, who has loved us and given us everlasting encouragement and good hope through his grace, encourage our hearts and strengthen them in every good deed and word. Amen. (cf. 2 Thes 2:16-17)

 

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

 

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.
