Prayer for the Evening

 

God is our shelter and our shield:

come, let us adore!

 

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

 

Our King of glory, him have we,

The Lion-Lord of victory:

The Father’s sole-begotten Son

Light’ning the ages as they run.

 

R/And therefore Father, Son, adore

With Holy Spirit evermore.

 

That dear, through him, to God we be,

From death delivered and set free:

Our death-wounds healed by his, despite

The ancient dragon’s deadly bite. R/

 

PSALM 36:6-10

 

Over all, his glory will be shelter and protection:/ shade from the parching heat of day,/ refuge and cover from storm and rain. (Is 4:6)

 

Jesus Christ, God’s Only Begotten Son, is the wealth of his house; the Spirit pouring out upon the world through his Death and Resurrection is the stream of God’s delight and the source of life. These gifts of God’s love are the origin of all holiness.

 

Your love, Lord, reaches to heaven;

your truth to the skies.

Your justice is like God’s mountain,

your judgments like the deep.

 

To both man and beast you give protection.

O Lord, how precious is your love.

My God, the sons of men

find refuge in the shelter of your wings.

 

They feast on the riches of your house;

they drink from the stream of your delight.

In you is the source of life

and in your light we see light.

 

Glory to the Father….

 

Word of God (Revelation 7:15-16)

 

They stand before God’s throne/ and worship him day and night in his temple./ The one who sits on the throne will shelter them./ They will not hunger or thirst anymore,/ nor will the sun or any heat strike them.

 

Let me dwell in your tent for ever/ and hide

in the shelter of your wings. (Ps 61:5)

 

CANTICLE OF MARY 

 

You are a refuge to the poor,/ a refuge to the needy in distress;/ Shelter from the rain,/ shade from the heat. (Is 25:4)

 

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 

 

God is our promised shelter and our shade. To him we pray:

 

R/Protect us from all harm.

 

In the midst of life’s tribulations,

– strengthen our hope in your promised Kingdom. R/

 

In the midst of physical ailments,

– grant us trust in your healing power. R/

 

In the midst of worry and distress,

– send us peace of heart. R/

 

(Personal intentions)

 

Our Father….

 

May the blessing of almighty God, Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, descend on us and remain with us for ever. Amen.

 

MARIAN ANTIPHON

 

Antiphon for the Feast of the Nativity

of the Blessed Virgin Mary,

8 September

 

With joy let us celebrate the nativity of blessed Mary,

that she may intercede for us

before the Lord Jesus Christ.

 

 

 

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.
