Evening Prayer II for the Solemnity of Trinity Sunday

God, come to my assistance.
Lord, make haste to help me.

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

O Trinity of blessed light,
O Unity of princely might,
The fiery sun now goes his way;
Shed Thou within our hearts Thy ray.

To Thee our morning song of praise,
To Thee our evening prayer we raise;
Thy glory suppliant we adore
Forever and for ever more.

All laud to God the Father be,
All praise, eternal Son, to Thee,
All glory, as is ever meet,
To God the holy Paraclete. Amen.

PSALMODY

Ant. 1 O Trinity most high, eternal and true: Father, Son and Holy Spirit.

Psalm 110:1-5, 7
The Messiah, king and priest

Christ’s reign will last until all his enemies are made subject to him (1 Corinthians 15:25).

The Lord’s revelation to my Master:
“Sit on my right:
your foes I will put beneath your feet.”

The Lord will wield from Zion
your scepter of power:
rule in the midst of all your foes.

A prince from the day of your birth
on the holy mountains;
from the womb before the dawn I begot you.

The Lord has sworn an oath he will not change.
“You are a priest for ever,
a priest like Melchizedek of old.”

The Master standing at your right hand
will shatter kings in the day of his great wrath.

He shall drink from the stream by the wayside
and therefore he shall lift up his head.

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.

Ant. O Trinity most high, eternal and true: Father, Son and Holy Spirit.

Ant. 2 Save us, set us free and give us life, O blessed Trinity.

Psalm 114
The Israelites are delivered from the bondage of Egypt

You too left Egypt when, at baptism, you renounced that world which is at enmity with God (Saint Augustine).

When Israel came forth from Egypt,
Jacob’s sons from an alien people,
Judah became the Lord’s temple,
Israel became his kingdom.

The sea fled at the sight:
the Jordan turned back on its course,
the mountains leapt like rams
and the hills like yearling sheep.

Why was it, sea, that you fled,
that you turned back, Jordan, on your course?
Mountains, that you leapt like rams,
hills, like yearling sheep?

Tremble, O earth, before the Lord,
in the presence of the God of Jacob,
who turns the rock into a pool
and flint into a spring of water.

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.

Ant. Save us, set us free and give us life, O blessed Trinity.

Ant. 3 Holy, holy, holy Lord, God of power and might, the God who is, who was, and who is to come.

Canticle – See Revelation 19:1-7
The wedding of the Lamb

Alleluia.
Salvation, glory, and power to our God:
his judgments are honest and true.
Alleluia.

Alleluia.
Sing praise to our God, all you his servants,
all who worship him reverently, great and small.
Alleluia.

Alleluia.
The Lord our all-powerful God is King;
Let us rejoice, sing praise, and give him glory.
Alleluia.

Alleluia.
The wedding feast of the Lamb has begun,
and his bride is prepared to welcome him.
Alleluia.

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.

Ant. Holy, holy, holy Lord, God of power and might, the God who is, who was, and who is to come.

READING Ephesians 4:3-6

Make every effort to preserve the unity which has the Spirit as its origin and peace as its binding force. There is but one body and one Spirit, just as there is but one hope given all of you by your call. There is one Lord, one faith, one baptism; one God and Father of all, who is over all, and works through all, and is in all.

Sacred Silence (indicated by a bell) – a moment to reflect and receive in our hearts the full resonance of the voice of the Holy Spirit and to unite our personal prayer more closely with the word of God and public voice of the Church.

RESPONSORY

Let us worship the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit; let us praise God for ever.
Let us worship the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit; let us praise God for ever.

To God alone be honor and glory;
let us praise God for ever.

Glory to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit,
Let us worship the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit; let us praise God for ever.

CANTICLE OF MARY

Ant. With our whole heart and voice we acclaim you, O God; we offer you our praise and worship, unbegotten Father, only-begotten Son, Holy Spirit, constant friend and guide; most holy and undivided Trinity, to you be glory for ever.

Luke 1:46-55
The soul rejoices in the Lord

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, and to the Son,
and to the Holy Spirit:
as it was in the beginning, is now,
and will be for ever. Amen.

Ant. With our whole heart and voice we acclaim you, O God; we offer you our praise and worship, unbegotten Father, only-begotten Son, Holy Spirit, constant friend and guide; most holy and undivided Trinity, to you be glory for ever.

INTERCESSIONS

The Father through the Holy Spirit has given life to the humanity of Christ his Son, and has made him a source of life for us; let us raise our voices in praise to the triune God:
Glory to the Father, and to the Son and to the Holy Spirit.

Father, almighty and eternal God, send the Holy Spirit upon your Church in your Son’s name,
preserve it in the unity of charity and in the fullness of truth.
Glory to the Father, and to the Son and to the Holy Spirit.

Send laborers into your harvest, Lord, to teach the truth to all nations, and to baptize them in the name of the Father, and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit,
and to confirm their faith.
Glory to the Father, and to the Son and to the Holy Spirit.

Father, send help to all who suffer persecution in the name of your Son,
for he promised to send the Spirit of Truth to answer for them.
Glory to the Father, and to the Son and to the Holy Spirit.

Father omnipotent, may all men come to acknowledge you, together with the Word and the Holy Spirit, as the one true God,
may they believe in you, hope in you, love you.
Glory to the Father, and to the Son and to the Holy Spirit.

Father of all the living, bring the dead to share in your glory,
the glory of your eternal reign with your Son and the Holy Spirit.
Glory to the Father, and to the Son and to the Holy Spirit.

Our Father who art in heaven,
hallowed be thy name.
Thy kingdom come.
Thy will be done on earth,
as it is in heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread,
and forgive us our trespasses,
as we forgive those who trespass against us,
and lead us not into temptation,
but deliver us from evil.

Concluding Prayer

God our Father,
who by sending into the world the Word
of truth and the Spirit of sanctification
made known to the human race your wondrous mystery,
grant us, we pray, that in professing the true faith,
we may acknowledge the Trinity of eternal glory
and adore your Unity, powerful in majesty.
Through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son,
who lives and reigns with you in the unity of the Holy Spirit,
God, for ever and ever.
Amen.

DISMISSAL

May the Lord bless us,
protect us from all evil and bring us to everlasting life.
Amen.

  5. My father said his morning prayers and night prayers on his knees daily. This left a life long impression on me how humble and persistent we must be in our prayer life when expressing our love to God. My Dad was the best father ever.

    • Fathers can be very God-filled and God-loving and as a result become their children’s life stronghold in their love for the Christian Faith. Those children that had such Holy and devout fathers were very fortunate, as these fathers enkindled in their children for a lifetime the Love of The Father, The Son and The Holy Spirit. I was one of those fortunate ones to have had such a Holy and Devout Father who is now in Heaven where he continues to praise God daily. Thank you so much Dad for my wonderful Catholic upbringing. I Love You Now and Forever.
