Prayer for the Evening

 

Let us call on the Lord’s name!

 

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

 

We praise your triumph here on earth,

So, holy Lawrence, lend your aid,

May each of us your favor feel,

Receiving grace for which we prayed.

 

For all the care with which you served

And loved the city’s poor in Rome,

What luster must enhance your crown

For ever in the Father’s home!

 

To Father, Son and Spirit blest

Be honor, homage, and renown,

Who will reward your prayers for us

By granting an eternal crown.

 

PSALM 116:10-19

 

Jesus said to them, “Can you drink the cup that I drink or be baptized with the baptism with which I am baptized?” (cf. Mk 10:38)

 

Saint Lawrence, deacon and servant of the Gospel, drank down the cup of suffering in communion with Christ.

 

I trusted, even when I said:

“I am sorely afflicted,”

and when I said in my alarm:

“No man can be trusted.”

 

How can I repay the Lord

for his goodness to me?

The cup of salvation I will raise;

I will call on the Lord’s name.

 

My vows to the Lord I will fulfill

before all his people.

O precious in the eyes of the Lord

is the death of his faithful.

 

Your servant, Lord, your servant am I;

you have loosened my bonds.

A thanksgiving sacrifice I make:

I will call on the Lord’s name.

 

My vows to the Lord I will fulfill

before all his people,

in the courts of the house of the Lord,

in your midst, O Jerusalem.

 

Glory to the Father….

 

Word of God (Romans 8:16-18)

 

We are children of God, and if children, then heirs, heirs of God and joint heirs with Christ, if only we suffer with him so that we may also be glorified with him.

 

I consider that the sufferings of this present time are as nothing compared with the glory to be revealed for us.

 

Do not be afraid of those who kill the body

but after that can do no more. (Lk 12:4)

 

CANTICLE OF MARY

 

I am already being poured out like a libation, and the time of my departure is at hand. (2 Tm 4:6)

 

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

 

Redeemed by the blood of Christ, we pray:

 

R/Lamb of God, you take away the sins of the world:

have mercy on us!

 

Blood of Christ, Only Begotten Son of the eternal Father, save us. R/

 

Blood of Christ, poured out on the cross, save us. R/

 

Blood of Christ, price of our salvation, save us. R/

 

Blood of Christ, shed anew in the martyrs, save us. R/

 

(Personal intentions)

 

Our Father….

 

May God look upon us with the love our Lord Jesus Christ showed us when he delivered himself to evil men and ­suffered the agony of the cross. Amen.

 

MARIAN ANTIPHON

 

Antiphon for the Solemnity

of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary,

August 15

 

Virgin most prudent, where do you go forth,

shining exceedingly as the dawn?

Daughter of Zion, you are all beautiful and gracious,

fair as the moon, bright as the sun.

 

 

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, 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.
