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!

 

Hymn

 

The Son of Man has come to save

The lost and dark of mind.

All men and women bound in chains

In him their freedom find.

 

In him the blind shall come to see,

The deaf shall understand,

For Jesus guides the erring soul

With his redeeming hand.

 

The Son of Man has come to serve

To seek and save the lost.

Blest be the Lord whose saints reveal

The triumph of his Cross.

 

Psalm 107:1-9

 

The Son of Man has come to seek and to save what was lost. (Lk 19:10)

The Lord seeks out the lost and gathers them into the safe dwelling place of his kingdom through the wise and courageous guidance of pastors like Saint Francis de Sales.

 

“O give thanks to the Lord for he is good;

for his love endures for ever.”

 

Let them say this, the Lord’s redeemed,

whom he redeemed from the hand of the foe

and gathered from far-off lands,

from east and west, north and south.

 

Some wandered in the desert, in the wilderness,

finding no way to a city they could dwell in.

Hungry they were and thirsty;

their soul was fainting within them.

 

Then they cried to the Lord in their need

and he rescued them from their distress

and he led them along the right way,

to reach a city they could dwell in.

 

Let them thank the Lord for his love,

for the wonders he does for men.

For he satisfies the thirsty soul;

he fills the hungry with good things.

 

Glory to the Father….

 

Word of God. 1 Peter 5:1-4

 

I exhort the presbyters among you, as a fellow presbyter and witness to the sufferings of Christ and one who has a share in the glory to be revealed. Tend the flock of God in your midst, [overseeing] not by constraint but willingly, as God would have it, not for shameful profit but eagerly. Do not lord it over those assigned to you, but be examples to the flock. And when the chief Shepherd is revealed, you will receive the unfading crown of glory.

A bishop as God’s steward must be blameless,

hospitable, a lover of goodness, temperate, just,

holy, and self-controlled. (cf. Ti 1:7-8)

 

Canticle of Mary

 

I will rescue my people from the land of the rising sun, and from the land of the setting sun. (Zec 8:7)

 

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 Good Shepherd and all his faithful servants bear the wounds of those who have sought the lost through thicket and thorn. With confidence, let us pray:

R/Lead your people home!

For those who seek holiness through the guidance of the Gospel:

– direct them to wise pastors. R/

For those who have lost sight of the goals of faith, hope, and love:

– restore them to the path of life. R/

For those who hunger and thirst for righteousness:

– grant them their fill. R/

Our Father….

 

May the Lord, our Shepherd, lead us to our heavenly homeland! Amen.

 

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.
