Grace to you and peace from God our Father and from the Lord Jesus Christ. Phillipians 1:2 Confession of Sin
Dearly beloved, we have come together in the presence of Almighty God our heavenly Father, to set forth his praise, to hear his holy Word, and to ask, for ourselves and on behalf of others, those things that are necessary for our life and our salvation. And so that we may prepare ourselves in heart and mind to worship him, let us kneel in silence, and with penitent and obedient hearts confess our sins, that we may obtain forgiveness by his infinite goodness and mercy.or this
Let us confess our sins against God and our neighbor.
Most merciful God, we confess that we have sinned against you in thought, word, and deed, by what we have done, and by what we have left undone. We have not loved you with our whole heart; we have not loved our neighbors as ourselves. We are truly sorry and we humbly repent. For the sake of your Son Jesus Christ, have mercy on us and forgive us; that we may delight in your will, and walk in your ways, to the glory of your Name. Amen.
*A deacon or lay person using the preceding form remains kneeling, and substitutes 'us' for 'you' and 'our' for 'your.'
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. AmenThe Invitatory and Psalter Officiant:
Lord, open our lips. People:
And our mouth shall proclaim your praise Officiant and People:
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 Alleluia The Invitatory Psalm
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
The earth is the Lord's for he made it: Come let us adore him.
My heart is overflowing with a good theme; I recite my composition concerning the King; My tongue is the pen of a ready writer. (2)
You are fairer than the sons of men; Grace is poured upon Your lips; Therefore God has blessed You forever. (3)
Gird Your sword upon Your thigh, O Mighty One, With Your glory and Your majesty. (4)
And in Your majesty ride prosperously because of truth, humility, and righteousness; And Your right hand shall teach You awesome things. (5)
Your arrows are sharp in the heart of the King's enemies; The peoples fall under You. (6)
Your throne, O God, is forever and ever; A scepter of righteousness is the scepter of Your kingdom. (7)
You love righteousness and hate wickedness; Therefore God, Your God, has anointed You With the oil of gladness more than Your companions. (8)
All Your garments are scented with myrrh and aloes and cassia, Out of the ivory palaces, by which they have made You glad. (9)
Kings' daughters are among Your honorable women; At Your right hand stands the queen in gold from Ophir. (10)
Listen, O daughter, Consider and incline your ear; Forget your own people also, and your father's house; (11)
So the King will greatly desire your beauty; Because He is your Lord, worship Him. (12)
And the daughter of Tyre will come with a gift; The rich among the people will seek your favor. (13)
The royal daughter is all glorious within the palace; Her clothing is woven with gold. (14)
She shall be brought to the King in robes of many colors; The virgins, her companions who follow her, shall be brought to You. (15)
With gladness and rejoicing they shall be brought; They shall enter the King's palace. (16)
Instead of Your fathers shall be Your sons, Whom You shall make princes in all the earth. (17)
I will make Your name to be remembered in all generations; Therefore the people shall praise You forever and 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 forever. Amen.
For there is no more remembrance of the wise than of the fool forever, Since all that now is will be forgotten in the days to come. And how does a wise man die? As the fool! (17)
Therefore I hated life because the work that was done under the sun was distressing to me, for all is vanity and grasping for the wind. (18)
Then I hated all my labor in which I had toiled under the sun, because I must leave it to the man who will come after me. (19)
And who knows whether he will be wise or a fool? Yet he will rule over all my labor in which I toiled and in which I have shown myself wise under the sun. This also is vanity. (20)
Therefore I turned my heart and despaired of all the labor in which I had toiled under the sun. (21)
For there is a man whose labor is with wisdom, knowledge, and skill; yet he must leave his heritage to a man who has not labored for it. This also is vanity and a great evil. (22)
For what has man for all his labor, and for the striving of his heart with which he has toiled under the sun? (23)
For all his days are sorrowful, and his work burdensome; even in the night his heart takes no rest. This also is vanity. (24)
Nothing is better for a man than that he should eat and drink, and that his soul should enjoy good in his labor. This also, I saw, was from the hand of God. (25)
For who can eat, or who can have enjoyment, more than I? (26)
For God gives wisdom and knowledge and joy to a man who is good in His sight; but to the sinner He gives the work of gathering and collecting, that he may give to him who is good before God. This also is vanity and grasping for the wind. The Word of the Lord.
Thanks be to God.
Then after three years I went up to Jerusalem to see Peter, and remained with him fifteen days. (19)
But I saw none of the other apostles except James, the Lord's brother. (20)
(Now concerning the things which I write to you, indeed, before God, I do not lie.) (21)
Afterward I went into the regions of Syria and Cilicia. (22)
And I was unknown by face to the churches of Judea which were in Christ. (23)
But they were hearing only, 'He who formerly persecuted us now preaches the faith which he once tried to destroy.' (1)
Then after fourteen years I went up again to Jerusalem with Barnabas, and also took Titus with me. (2)
And I went up by revelation, and communicated to them that gospel which I preach among the Gentiles, but privately to those who were of reputation, lest by any means I might run, or had run, in vain. (3)
Yet not even Titus who was with me, being a Greek, was compelled to be circumcised. (4)
And this occurred because of false brethren secretly brought in (who came in by stealth to spy out our liberty which we have in Christ Jesus, that they might bring us into bondage), (5)
to whom we did not yield submission even for an hour, that the truth of the gospel might continue with you. (6)
But from those who seemed to be something -- whatever they were, it makes no difference to me; God shows personal favoritism to no man -- for those who seemed to be something added nothing to me. (7)
But on the contrary, when they saw that the gospel for the uncircumcised had been committed to me, as the gospel for the circumcised was to Peter (8)
(for He who worked effectively in Peter for the apostleship to the circumcised also worked effectively in me toward the Gentiles), (9)
and when James, Cephas, and John, who seemed to be pillars, perceived the grace that had been given to me, they gave me and Barnabas the right hand of fellowship, that we should go to the Gentiles and they to the circumcised. (10)
They desired only that we should remember the poor, the very thing which I also was eager to do. The Word of the Lord.
Thanks be to God.
Now it came to pass, when Jesus had finished these parables, that He departed from there. (54)
And when He had come to His own country, He taught them in their synagogue, so that they were astonished and said, 'Where did this Man get this wisdom and these mighty works? (55)
Is this not the carpenter's son? Is not His mother called Mary? And His brothers James, Joses, Simon, and Judas? (56)
And His sisters, are they not all with us? Where then did this Man get all these things?' (57)
So they were offended at Him. But Jesus said to them, 'A prophet is not without honor except in his own country and in his own house.' (58)
Now He did not do many mighty works there because of their unbelief. The Gospel of the Lord.
Thanks be to God. Canticles can be prayed or sung after each reading or after all readings.

Revelation 4:11, 5:9-10, 13
Splendor and honor and kingly power *
are yours by right, O Lord our God,
For you created everything that is, *
and by your will they were created
and have their being;
And yours by right, O Lamb that was slain, *
for with your blood you have redeemed for God,
From every family, language, people, and nation, *
a kingdom of priests to serve our God.
And so, to him who sits upon the throne, *
and to Christ the Lamb,
Be worship and praise, dominion and splendor, *
forever and forevermore.

Glory to you, beholding the depths; *
in the high vault of heaven, glory to you.
Glory to you, Father, Son, and Holy Spirit; *

The Apostles' Creed *Officiant and People together, all standing
I believe in God, the Father almighty, creator of heaven and earth.
I believe in Jesus Christ, his only son, our Lord.
He was conceived by the Holy Spirit and born of the Virgin Mary.
He suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, died, and was buried.
He descended to the dead.
On the third day he rose again.
He ascended into heaven, and is seated at the right hand of the Father.
He will come again to judge the living and the dead.
I believe in the Holy Spirit,
the holy catholic Church,
the communion of saints,
the forgiveness of sins,
the resurrection of the body,
and the life everlasting. Amen. The Prayers *The People stand or kneel Officiant :

And, we pray, give us such an awareness of your mercies, that with truly thankful hearts we may show forth your praise, not only with our lips, but in our lives, by giving up ourselves to your service, and by walking before you in holiness and righteousness all our days; through Jesus Christ our Lord, to whom, with you and the Holy Spirit, be honor and glory throughout all ages. Amen.
Almighty God, you have given us grace at this time with one accord to make our common supplication to you; and you have promised through your well-beloved Son that when two or three are gathered together in his Name you will be in the midst of them: Fulfill now, O Lord, our desires and petitions as may be best for us; granting us in this world knowledge of your truth, and in the age to come life everlasting.
