I confess that I have sinned against you in thought, word, and deed, by what I have done, and by what I have left undone. I have not loved you with my whole heart; I have not loved my neighbors as myself. I am truly sorry and I humbly repent. For the sake of your Son Jesus Christ, have mercy on me and forgive me; that I may delight in your will, and walk in your ways, to the glory of your Name. Amen.

Almighty God have mercy on us, forgive us all our sins through our Lord Jesus Christ, strengthen us in all goodness, and by the power of the Holy Spirit keep us in eternal life. Amen

Then follows one of the Invitatory Psalm, Venite, or Jubilate

Venite
Psalm 95:1-7

Come, let us sing to the Lord;
   let us shout for joy to the Rock of our salvation.
Let us come before his presence with thanksgiving
   and raise a loud shout to him with psalms.
For the Lord is a great God,
   and a great King above all gods.
In his hand are the caverns of the earth,
   and the heights of the hills are his also.
The sea is his, for he made it,
   and his hands have molded the dry land.
Come, let us bow down, and bend the knee,
   and kneel before the Lord our Maker.
For he is our God, and we are the people of his pasture and the sheep of his hand.
    Oh, that today you would hearken to his voice!

The following Antiphon may be sung or said with the Invitatory Psalm

Worship the Lord in the beauty of holiness: Come let us adore him.


The Lessons



Psalm 137

(1) By the rivers of Babylon we sat and wept when we remembered Zion. (2) There on the poplars we hung our harps, (3) for there our captors asked us for songs, our tormentors demanded songs of joy; they said, 'Sing us one of the songs of Zion!' (4) How can we sing the songs of the LORD while in a foreign land?

(5) If I forget you, O Jerusalem, may my right hand forget [its skill]. (6) May my tongue cling to the roof of my mouth if I do not remember you, if I do not consider Jerusalem my highest joy. (7) Remember, O LORD, what the Edomites did on the day Jerusalem fell. 'Tear it down,' they cried, 'tear it down to its foundations!' (8) O Daughter of Babylon, doomed to destruction, happy is he who repays you for what you have done to us--

(9) he who seizes your infants and dashes them against the rocks.

Glory to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit, as it was in the beginning, is now, and will be forever. Amen.



Psalm 144

(1) Praise be to the LORD my Rock, who trains my hands for war, my fingers for battle. (2) He is my loving God and my fortress, my stronghold and my deliverer, my shield, in whom I take refuge, who subdues peoples under me. (3) O LORD, what is man that you care for him, the son of man that you think of him? (4) Man is like a breath; his days are like a fleeting shadow.

(5) Part your heavens, O LORD, and come down; touch the mountains, so that they smoke. (6) Send forth lightning and scatter [the enemies]; shoot your arrows and rout them. (7) Reach down your hand from on high; deliver me and rescue me from the mighty waters, from the hands of foreigners (8) whose mouths are full of lies, whose right hands are deceitful.

(9) I will sing a new song to you, O God; on the ten-stringed lyre I will make music to you, (10) to the One who gives victory to kings, who delivers his servant David from the deadly sword. (11) Deliver me and rescue me from the hands of foreigners whose mouths are full of lies, whose right hands are deceitful. (12) Then our sons in their youth will be like well-nurtured plants, and our daughters will be like pillars carved to adorn a palace.

(13) Our barns will be filled with every kind of provision. Our sheep will increase by thousands, by tens of thousands in our fields; (14) our oxen will draw heavy loads. There will be no breaching of walls, no going into captivity, no cry of distress in our streets. (15) Blessed are the people of whom this is true; blessed are the people whose God is the LORD.

Glory to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit, as it was in the beginning, is now, and will be forever. Amen.



Numbers 24

(12) Balaam answered Balak, 'Did I not tell the messengers you sent me, (13) Even if Balak gave me his palace filled with silver and gold, I could not do anything of my own accord, good or bad, to go beyond the command of the LORD-- and I must say only what the LORD says'? (14) Now I am going back to my people, but come, let me warn you of what this people will do to your people in days to come.' (15) Then he uttered his oracle: 'The oracle of Balaam son of Beor, the oracle of one whose eye sees clearly,

(16) the oracle of one who hears the words of God, who has knowledge from the Most High, who sees a vision from the Almighty, who falls prostrate, and whose eyes are opened: (17) I see him, but not now; I behold him, but not near. A star will come out of Jacob; a scepter will rise out of Israel. He will crush the foreheads of Moab, the skulls of all the sons of Sheth. (18) Edom will be conquered; Seir, his enemy, will be conquered, but Israel will grow strong. (19) A ruler will come out of Jacob and destroy the survivors of the city.'

(20) Then Balaam saw Amalek and uttered his oracle: 'Amalek was first among the nations, but he will come to ruin at last.' (21) Then he saw the Kenites and uttered his oracle: 'Your dwelling place is secure, your nest is set in a rock; (22) yet you Kenites will be destroyed when Asshur takes you captive.' (23) Then he uttered his oracle: 'Ah, who can live when God does this?

(24) Ships will come from the shores of Kittim; they will subdue Asshur and Eber, but they too will come to ruin.' (25) Then Balaam got up and returned home and Balak went his own way.

  The Word of the Lord.
  Thanks be to God.



Romans 8

(18) I consider that our present sufferings are not worth comparing with the glory that will be revealed in us. (19) The creation waits in eager expectation for the sons of God to be revealed. (20) For the creation was subjected to frustration, not by its own choice, but by the will of the one who subjected it, in hope (21) that the creation itself will be liberated from its bondage to decay and brought into the glorious freedom of the children of God.

(22) We know that the whole creation has been groaning as in the pains of childbirth right up to the present time. (23) Not only so, but we ourselves, who have the firstfruits of the Spirit, groan inwardly as we wait eagerly for our adoption as sons, the redemption of our bodies. (24) For in this hope we were saved. But hope that is seen is no hope at all. Who hopes for what he already has? (25) But if we hope for what we do not yet have, we wait for it patiently.

  The Word of the Lord.
  Thanks be to God.



Matthew 22

(23) That same day the Sadducees, who say there is no resurrection, came to him with a question. (24) Teacher,' they said, 'Moses told us that if a man dies without having children, his brother must marry the widow and have children for him. (25) Now there were seven brothers among us. The first one married and died, and since he had no children, he left his wife to his brother. (26) The same thing happened to the second and third brother, right on down to the seventh.

(27) Finally, the woman died. (28) Now then, at the resurrection, whose wife will she be of the seven, since all of them were married to her?' (29) Jesus replied, 'You are in error because you do not know the Scriptures or the power of God. (30) At the resurrection people will neither marry nor be given in marriage; they will be like the angels in heaven.

(31) But about the resurrection of the dead-- have you not read what God said to you, (32) I am the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob'? He is not the God of the dead but of the living.' (33) When the crowds heard this, they were astonished at his teaching. (34) Hearing that Jesus had silenced the Sadducees, the Pharisees got together.

(35) One of them, an expert in the law, tested him with this question: (36) Teacher, which is the greatest commandment in the Law?' (37) Jesus replied: ''Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.' (38) This is the first and greatest commandment.

(39) And the second is like it: 'Love your neighbor as yourself.' (40) All the Law and the Prophets hang on these two commandments.'

  The Gospel of the Lord.
  Thanks be to God.
