Forever and for ever more.

All glory, as is ever meet,
To God the holy Paraclete. Amen.

CANTICLE OF MARY

Ant. Brothers, if you desire to be truly rich, set your heart on true riches.

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. Brothers, if you desire to be truly rich, set your heart on true riches.

All praise and honor to Christ! He lives for ever to intercede for us, and he is able to save those who approach the Father in his name. Sustained by our faith, let us call upon him:
Remember your people, Lord.

As the day draws to a close, Sun of Justice, we invoke your name upon the whole human race,
so that all men may enjoy your never failing light.
Remember your people, Lord.

Preserve the covenant which you have ratified in your blood,
cleanse and sanctify your Church.
Remember your people, Lord.

Remember your assembly, Lord,
your dwelling place.
Remember your people, Lord.

Guide travelers along the path of peace and prosperity,
so that they may reach their destinations in safety and joy.
Remember your people, Lord.

Receive the souls of the dead, Lord,
grant them your favor and the gift of eternal glory.
Remember your people, Lord.

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

Draw near to your servants,
O Lord, and answer their prayers
with unceasing kindness, that,
for those who glory in you as their Creator and guide,
you may restore what you have created
and keep safe what you have restored.
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.
