Morning Prayer for Sunday in Ordinary Time

as it was in the beginning, is now, and will be for ever. Amen. Alleluia.

HYMN

Eternal maker of the world,
The sov'reign Lord of night and day:
You give the seasons of the year
To take time's heaviness away.

In deepest night you never sleep,
A Lamp for trav'lers on the way;
A Light dividing night from night,
The rooster crows announcing day.

See, at the sound, the daystar wakes
And drives the darkness from the sky;
All those who strayed on deadly roads
Now take the path to life on high.

The ocean hears; the waves die down;
The sailor overcomes his fears
Saint Peter hears; The Church's Rock
Removes denial's stain with tears.

O Jesus, save us, for we fall;
Look down and set us right, we pray,
For at your glance our failings fail,
And sorrow washes sins away.

O Light, upon our senses shine,
Dispel the sleepiness within;
Let our first words be words of you;
With faithful praise our day begin.

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

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.

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.

as it was in the beginning, is now,
and will be for ever. Amen.

Father, you sent the Holy Spirit to enlighten the hearts of men; hear us as we pray:
Enlighten your people, Lord.

Blessed are you, O God, our light,
you have given us a new day resplendent with your glory.
Enlighten your people, Lord.

You enlightened the world through the resurrection of your Son,
through your Church shed this light on all men.
Enlighten your people, Lord.

You gave the disciples of your only-begotten Son the Spirit’s gift of understanding,
through the same Spirit keep the Church faithful to you.
Enlighten your people, Lord.

Light of nations, remember those who remain in darkness,
open their eyes and let them recognize you, the only true God.
Enlighten 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

Almighty ever-living God,
whom, taught by the Holy Spirit,
we dare to call our Father,
bring, we pray, to perfection in our hearts
the spirit of adoption as your sons and daughters,
that we may merit to enter into the inheritance
which you have promised.
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.

  7. AFTER MASS AND COMMUNION PRAYER:

    O Mary, Virgin and Mother most holy,
    behold, we have received your most dear Son,
    Whom you conceived in your immaculate womb,
    brought forth, nursed and embraced most tenderly.

    Behold Him at whose sight
    you used to rejoice and be filled with all delight;
    Him whom, humbly and lovingly,
    once again we present
    and offer to you
    to be clasped in your arms,
    to be loved by your heart,
    and to be offered up to the Most Holy Trinity
    as the supreme worship of adoration,
    for your own honor and glory
    and for our needs and for those of the whole world.

    We ask you therefore, most loving Mother:
    entreat for us the forgiveness of all our sins
    and, in abundant measure, the grace
    of serving Him in the future more faithfully,
    and at the last, final grace,
    so that with you we may praise Him
    for all the ages of ages.
    Amen.

We love You, O infinitely lovable and infinitely loving God, and we would rather die loving You, than live without loving You. We love You, Lord, and the only grace we ask is to love You eternally. O God, if our tongues cannot say in every moment that we love you, we want our hearts to repeat it to You as often as we draw breath.

    We Love You, O God
    In union with that love with which all the saints and all the angels love You in heaven,
    In union with that love with which the Blessed Virgin Mary loves You,
    In union with that infinite love with which You love Yourself eternally,
    We Love You, O God.

    Most Holy Virgin Mary, tender Mother of men, to fulfill the desires of the Sacred Heart of Jesus and the request of the Vicar of Your Son on earth, we consecrate ourselves and our families to your Sorrowful and Immaculate Heart, O Queen of the Most Holy Rosary, and we recommend to You, all the people of our country and all the world.

    Please accept our consecration, dearest Mother, and use us as You wish to accomplish Your designs in the world.

    St. Joseph, husband of Mary and foster father of Jesus,
    you have been charged with the protection of the universal Church
    so that you might care for all the children of the Kingdom
    in the same way you lovingly cared for the members of the Holy Family.

    From heaven, where you now live with Jesus and Mary,
    Bring together from the four corners of the world all your children
    so that they may live in one Spirit. Lead all Christians to unity in the same faith.

    Obtain for the Holy Father, for all our bishops, and for all the faithful,
    who with them, form the Church community, the graces of
    enlightenment and strength so that all may live in the teaching
    of Jesus Christ.

    Amen.
