Let the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart be acceptable in your sight, O Lord, my strength and my redeemer. Psalm 19:14 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.

Jubilate Psalm 100
Be joyful in the Lord, all you lands;
serve the Lord with gladness and come before his presence with a song.
Know this: The Lord himself is God;
he himself has made us, and we are his; we are his people and the sheep of his pasture.
Enter his gates with thanksgiving; go into his courts with praise;
give thanks to him and call upon his Name.
For the Lord is good; his mercy is everlasting;
and his faithfulness endures from age to age.
The following Antiphon may be sung or said
The mercy of the Lord is everlasting: Come let us adore him.
Give ear, O Shepherd of Israel, You who lead Joseph like a flock; You who dwell between the cherubim, shine forth! (2)
Before Ephraim, Benjamin, and Manasseh, Stir up Your strength, And come and save us! (3)
Restore us, O God; Cause Your face to shine, And we shall be saved! (4)
O LORD God of hosts, How long will You be angry Against the prayer of Your people? (5)
You have fed them with the bread of tears, And given them tears to drink in great measure. (6)
You have made us a strife to our neighbors, And our enemies laugh among themselves. (7)
Restore us, O God of hosts; Cause Your face to shine, And we shall be saved! (8)
You have brought a vine out of Egypt; You have cast out the nations, and planted it. (9)
You prepared room for it, And caused it to take deep root, And it filled the land. (10)
The hills were covered with its shadow, And the mighty cedars with its boughs. (11)
She sent out her boughs to the Sea, And her branches to the River. (12)
Why have You broken down her hedges, So that all who pass by the way pluck her fruit? (13)
The boar out of the woods uproots it, And the wild beast of the field devours it. (14)
Return, we beseech You, O God of hosts; Look down from heaven and see, And visit this vine (15)
And the vineyard which Your right hand has planted, And the branch that You made strong for Yourself. (16)
It is burned with fire, it is cut down; They perish at the rebuke of Your countenance. (17)
Let Your hand be upon the man of Your right hand, Upon the son of man whom You made strong for Yourself. (18)
Then we will not turn back from You; Revive us, and we will call upon Your name. (19)
Restore us, O LORD God of hosts; Cause Your face to shine, And we shall be saved!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.
Now it came to pass the same night that the LORD said to him, 'Take your father's young bull, the second bull of seven years old, and tear down the altar of Baal that your father has, and cut down the wooden image that is beside it; (26)
and build an altar to the LORD your God on top of this rock in the proper arrangement, and take the second bull and offer a burnt sacrifice with the wood of the image which you shall cut down.' (27)
So Gideon took ten men from among his servants and did as the LORD had said to him. But because he feared his father's household and the men of the city too much to do it by day, he did it by night. (28)
And when the men of the city arose early in the morning, there was the altar of Baal, torn down; and the wooden image that was beside it was cut down, and the second bull was being offered on the altar which had been built. (29)
So they said to one another, 'Who has done this thing?' And when they had inquired and asked, they said, 'Gideon the son of Joash has done this thing.' (30)
Then the men of the city said to Joash, 'Bring out your son, that he may die, because he has torn down the altar of Baal, and because he has cut down the wooden image that was beside it.' (31)
But Joash said to all who stood against him, 'Would you plead for Baal? Would you save him? Let the one who would plead for him be put to death by morning! If he is a god, let him plead for himself, because his altar has been torn down!' (32)
Therefore on that day he called him Jerubbaal, saying, 'Let Baal plead against him, because he has torn down his altar.' (33)
Then all the Midianites and Amalekites, the people of the East, gathered together; and they crossed over and encamped in the Valley of Jezreel. (34)
But the Spirit of the LORD came upon Gideon; then he blew the trumpet, and the Abiezrites gathered behind him. (35)
And he sent messengers throughout all Manasseh, who also gathered behind him. He also sent messengers to Asher, Zebulun, and Naphtali; and they came up to meet them. (36)
So Gideon said to God, 'If You will save Israel by my hand as You have said -- (37)
look, I shall put a fleece of wool on the threshing floor; if there is dew on the fleece only, and it is dry on all the ground, then I shall know that You will save Israel by my hand, as You have said.' (38)
And it was so. When he rose early the next morning and squeezed the fleece together, he wrung the dew out of the fleece, a bowlful of water. (39)
Then Gideon said to God, 'Do not be angry with me, but let me speak just once more: Let me test, I pray, just once more with the fleece; let it now be dry only on the fleece, but on all the ground let there be dew.' (40)
And God did so that night. It was dry on the fleece only, but there was dew on all the ground. The Word of the Lord.
Thanks be to God.
Now when they heard this, they were cut to the heart, and said to Peter and the rest of the apostles, 'Men and brethren, what shall we do?' (38)
Then Peter said to them, 'Repent, and let every one of you be baptized in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins; and you shall receive the gift of the Holy Spirit. (39)
For the promise is to you and to your children, and to all who are afar off, as many as the Lord our God will call.' (40)
And with many other words he testified and exhorted them, saying, 'Be saved from this perverse generation.' (41)
Then those who gladly received his word were baptized; and that day about three thousand souls were added to them. (42)
And they continued steadfastly in the apostles' doctrine and fellowship, in the breaking of bread, and in prayers. (43)
Then fear came upon every soul, and many wonders and signs were done through the apostles. (44)
Now all who believed were together, and had all things in common, (45)
and sold their possessions and goods, and divided them among all, as anyone had need. (46)
So continuing daily with one accord in the temple, and breaking bread from house to house, they ate their food with gladness and simplicity of heart, (47)
praising God and having favor with all the people. And the Lord added to the church daily those who were being saved. The Word of the Lord.
Thanks be to God.
In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. (2)
He was in the beginning with God. (3)
All things were made through Him, and without Him nothing was made that was made. (4)
In Him was life, and the life was the light of men. (5)
And the light shines in the darkness, and the darkness did not comprehend it. (6)
There was a man sent from God, whose name was John. (7)
This man came for a witness, to bear witness of the Light, that all through him might believe. (8)
He was not that Light, but was sent to bear witness of that Light. (9)
That was the true Light which gives light to every man coming into the world. (10)
He was in the world, and the world was made through Him, and the world did not know Him. (11)
He came to His own, and His own did not receive Him. (12)
But as many as received Him, to them He gave the right to become children of God, to those who believe in His name: (13)
who were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God. (14)
And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us, and we beheld His glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father, full of grace and truth. (15)
John bore witness of Him and cried out, saying, 'This was He of whom I said, 'He who comes after me is preferred before me, for He was before me.' ' (16)
And of His fullness we have all received, and grace for grace. (17)
For the law was given through Moses, but grace and truth came through Jesus Christ. (18)
No one has seen God at any time. The only begotten Son, who is in the bosom of the Father, He has declared Him. The Gospel of the Lord.
Thanks be to God. Canticles can be prayed or sung after each reading or after all readings.
