HYMN

The beauty of the rising sun
Begins to tint the world with light,
Awakened nature glows with life
As form and color reappear.

Lord Jesus Christ, you far surpass
The sun that shines since time began;
We turn to you with joyous song
That you may bless us with your smile.

You are God's knowledge infinite,
His Word, through whom all things were made;
Their wondrous order speaks to us
And draws our hearts and minds to you.

Give us your light that like true sons
Intrepid we may tread life's path.
May all our ways and actions show
The gift of God the Father's grace.

Let every word our lips may say
Prove our sincerity and truth,
That our serenity of soul
May radiate our inward joy.

To you, O Christ, most kindly King,
And to the Father, glory be;
Praise to the Spirit Paraclete,
In every age, eternally. Amen.

PSALMODY

Ant. 1 Lord, you have blessed your land; you have forgiven the sins of your people.

Psalm 85
Our salvation is near

God blessed the land when our Savior came to earth. (Origen)

O Lord, you once favored your land
and revived the fortunes of Jacob,
you forgave the guilt of your people
and covered all their sins.
You averted all your rage,
you calmed the heat of your anger.

Revive us now, God, our helper!
Put an end to your grievance against us.
Will you be angry with us for ever,
will your anger never cease?

Will you not restore again our life
that your people may rejoice in you?
Let us see, O Lord, your mercy
and give us your saving help.

I will hear what the Lord God has to say,
a voice that speaks of peace,
peace for his people and his friends
and those who turn to him in their hearts.
His help is near for those who fear him
and his glory will dwell in our land.

Mercy and faithfulness have met;
justice and peace have embraced.
Faithfulness shall spring from the earth
and justice look down from heaven.

The Lord will make us prosper
and our earth shall yield its fruit.
Justice shall march before him
and peace shall follow his steps.

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.

Psalm-prayer

Show us your mercy, Lord; our misery is known to us. May no evil desires prevail over us, for your glory and love dwell in our hearts.

Ant. Lord, you have blessed your land; you have forgiven the sins of your people.

Ant.2 My soul has yearned for you in the night, and as morning breaks I watch for your coming.

Canticle – Isaiah 26:1-4, 7-9, 12
Hymn after the defeat of the enemy

The city wall had twelve foundation stones (see Revelation 21:14).

A strong city have we;
he sets up walls and ramparts to protect us.
Open up the gates
to let in a nation that is just,
one that keeps faith.

A nation of firm purpose you keep in peace;
in peace, for its trust in you.
Trust in the Lord forever!
For the Lord is an eternal Rock.

The way of the just is smooth;
the path of the just you make level.
Yes, for your way and your judgments, O Lord,
we look to you;
your name and your title
are the desire of our souls.

My soul yearns for you in the night,
yes, my spirit within me keeps vigil for you;
when your judgment dawns upon the earth,
the world’s inhabitants learn justice.

O Lord, you mete out peace to us,
for it is you who have accomplished all we have done.

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. My soul has yearned for you in the night, and as morning breaks I watch for your coming.

Ant. 3 Lord, let the light of your face shine upon us.

Psalm 67
People of all nations will worship the Lord

You must know that God is offering his salvation to all the world (Acts 28:28).

O God, be gracious and bless us
and let your face shed its light upon us.
So will your ways be known upon earth
and all nations learn your saving help.

Let the peoples praise you, O God;
let all the peoples praise you.

Let the nations be glad and exult
for you rule the world with justice.
With fairness you rule the peoples,
you guide the nations on earth.

Let the peoples praise you, O God;
let all the peoples praise you.

The earth has yielded its fruit
for God, our God, has blessed us.
May God still give us his blessing
till the ends of the earth revere him.

Let the peoples praise you, O God;
let all the peoples praise you.

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.

Psalm-prayer

Be gracious and bless us, Lord, and let your face shed its light on us, so that we can make you known with reverence and bring forth a harvest of justice.

Ant. Lord, let the light of your face shine upon us.

READING 1 John 4:14-15

We have seen for ourselves, and can testify, that the Father has sent the Son as savior of the world. When anyone acknowledges that Jesus is the Son of God, God dwells in him and he in God.

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

My God stands by me, all my trust is in him.
My God stands by me, all my trust is in him.

I find refuge in him, and I am truly free;
all my trust is in him.

Glory to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit,
My God stands by me, all my trust is in him.

CANTICLE OF ZECHARIAH

Ant. God has raised up for us a mighty Savior, as he promised of old through his holy prophets.

Luke 1:68 – 79
The Messiah and his forerunner

Blessed be the Lord, the God of Israel;
he has come to his people and set them free.
He has raised up for us a mighty savior,
born of the house of his servant David.

Through his holy prophets he promised of old
that he would save us from our enemies,
from the hands of all who hate us.
He promised to show mercy to our fathers
and to remember his holy covenant.

This was the oath he swore to our father Abraham:
to set us free from the hands of our enemies,
free to worship him without fear,
holy and righteous in his sight all the days of our life.

You, my child, shall be called the prophet of the Most High;
for you will go before the Lord to prepare his way,
to give his people knowledge of salvation
by the forgiveness of their sins.

In the tender compassion of our God
the dawn from on high shall break upon us,
to shine on those who dwell in darkness and the shadow of death,
and to guide our feet into the way of peace.

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. God has raised up for us a mighty Savior, as he promised of old through his holy prophets.

  10. Prayer During This Summer of Rage:

    Divine Mercy Prayer
    By St. Faustina Kowalska

    O greatly Merciful God, Infinite Goodness,
    today all mankind calls out from the abyss
    of its misery to Your mercy—to Your compassion,
    O God; and it is with its mighty voice of misery that it cries out.
    Gracious God do not reject the prayer of this earth’s exiles!
    O Lord, Goodness beyond our understanding,
    Who are acquainted with our misery through and through,
    and know that by our own power
    we cannot ascend to You,
    we implore You; anticipate us with Your Grace
    and keep on increasing Your mercy in us,
    that we may faithfully do Your holy will
    all through our life and at death’s hour.
    Let the omnipotence of Your mercy
    shield us from the darts of our salvation’s enemies,
    that we may with confidence,
    as Your children await Your final coming
    – that day known to You alone.
    And we expect to obtain everything promised us
    by Jesus in spite of all our wretchedness.
    For Jesus is our Hope:
    Through His merciful Heart
    as through an open gate we pass through to heaven.

    (Diary of St. Faustina 1570)

  11. A patient man is better than a warrior, and he who rules his temper, then he who takes us city. -Prv 16:23

    Reflection: Human beings must have patience with one another.

  13. A Prayer for the Troubled Heart

    Dear God, Our world is hurting and broken. We pray for those who have lost loved ones this week, please comfort them in their grief and loss, cover them with Your peace and presence, as only Your Spirit can do. We know that in whatever we face, You are our Peace and Refuge, a very present help in times of trouble. Thank You that You remind us throughout Your Word, we do not face the storms alone, but You are always with us. Whispering calm. Speaking peace. Bringing rest to our souls.

    We confess our need for You. We ask You to forgive us for trying to figure everything out on our own, for not trusting that You are more than able and powerful to work on our behalf. Forgive us for picking back up what we already determined to lay down at Your feet. Give us the ability to trust You more, give us a heart that finds rest in Your presence, give us the wisdom to seek peace and pursue it, remembering it’s only to be found in You alone.

    Thank You that Your yoke is easy and Your burden is light. Thank You that You care for us. Thank You that the peace of Your loving and strong presence guards and protects our hearts and minds in You. Thank You that we do not have to walk in fear or live in overwhelmed cycles of worry and stress. Thank You for Your voice that breaks through the greatest wind and storm swirling around us, and whispers “Peace, be still.” Thank You that You sent Your One and Only Son to set us free. In the Mighty Name of Jesus, Amen.
