The Lord is in his holy temple; let all the earth keep silence before him. Habakkuk 2:20 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.

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;

The following Antiphon may be sung or said
Worship the Lord in the beauty of holiness: Come let us adore him.
To You, O LORD, I lift up my soul. (2)
O my God, I trust in You; Let me not be ashamed; Let not my enemies triumph over me. (3)
Indeed, let no one who waits on You be ashamed; Let those be ashamed who deal treacherously without cause. (4)
Show me Your ways, O LORD; Teach me Your paths. (5)
Lead me in Your truth and teach me, For You are the God of my salvation; On You I wait all the day. (6)
Remember, O LORD, Your tender mercies and Your lovingkindnesses, For they are from of old. (7)
Do not remember the sins of my youth, nor my transgressions; According to Your mercy remember me, For Your goodness' sake, O LORD. (8)
Good and upright is the LORD; Therefore He teaches sinners in the way. (9)
The humble He guides in justice, And the humble He teaches His way. (10)
All the paths of the LORD are mercy and truth, To such as keep His covenant and His testimonies. (11)
For Your name's sake, O LORD, Pardon my iniquity, for it is great. (12)
Who is the man that fears the LORD? Him shall He teach in the way He chooses. (13)
He himself shall dwell in prosperity, And his descendants shall inherit the earth. (14)
The secret of the LORD is with those who fear Him, And He will show them His covenant. (15)
My eyes are ever toward the LORD, For He shall pluck my feet out of the net. (16)
Turn Yourself to me, and have mercy on me, For I am desolate and afflicted. (17)
The troubles of my heart have enlarged; Bring me out of my distresses! (18)
Look on my affliction and my pain, And forgive all my sins. (19)
Consider my enemies, for they are many; And they hate me with cruel hatred. (20)
Keep my soul, and deliver me; Let me not be ashamed, for I put my trust in You. (21)
Let integrity and uprightness preserve me, For I wait for You. (22)
Redeem Israel, O God, Out of all their troubles!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.
Take advantage of opportunities, but guard yourself against evil. Don't underrate yourself. (21)
Humility deserves honor and respect, but a low opinion of yourself leads to sin. (22)
Do not let others have their way at your expense; do not bring on your own ruin by giving up your rights. (23)
Never hesitate to speak out when the occasion calls for it. Don't hide your wisdom. (24)
Your wisdom and education can be known only by what you say. (25)
Do not, however, go against the truth, and remember that you do not know everything. (26)
Don't be ashamed to confess your sins; there's no point in trying to stop a river from flowing. (27)
Don't allow yourself to be dominated by someone who is stupid or show partiality to influential people. (28)
Stand up for what is right, even if it costs you your life; the Lord God will be fighting on your side. (29)
Don't be quick to speak or lazy and negligent in your work. (30)
Don't act like a lion at home or be suspicious of your servants. (31)
Don't stick out your hand to get something if you're going to be tightfisted when the time comes to pay it back. (1)
Don't rely on money to make you independent. (2)
Don't think you have to have everything you want, and then spend your energy trying to get it. (3)
Don't think that no one can exercise authority over you; if you do, the Lord is certain to punish you. (4)
Don't think that you can sin and get away with it; the Lord does not mind waiting to punish you. (5)
Don't be so certain of the Lord's forgiveness that you go on committing one sin after another. (6)
Don't think that his mercy is so great that he will forgive your sins no matter how many they are. He does show mercy, but he also shows his furious anger with sinners. (7)
Come back to the Lord quickly. Don't think that you can keep putting it off. His anger can come upon you suddenly, and you will die under his punishment. The Word of the Lord. Thanks be to God.
After these things I saw four angels standing at the four corners of the earth, holding the four winds of the earth, that the wind should not blow on the earth, on the sea, or on any tree. (2)
Then I saw another angel ascending from the east, having the seal of the living God. And he cried with a loud voice to the four angels to whom it was granted to harm the earth and the sea, (3)
saying, 'Do not harm the earth, the sea, or the trees till we have sealed the servants of our God on their foreheads.' (4)
And I heard the number of those who were sealed. One hundred and forty-four thousand of all the tribes of the children of Israel were sealed: (5)
of the tribe of Judah twelve thousand were sealed; of the tribe of Reuben twelve thousand were sealed; of the tribe of Gad twelve thousand were sealed; (6)
of the tribe of Asher twelve thousand were sealed; of the tribe of Naphtali twelve thousand were sealed; of the tribe of Manasseh twelve thousand were sealed; (7)
of the tribe of Simeon twelve thousand were sealed; of the tribe of Levi twelve thousand were sealed; of the tribe of Issachar twelve thousand were sealed; (8)
of the tribe of Zebulun twelve thousand were sealed; of the tribe of Joseph twelve thousand were sealed; of the tribe of Benjamin twelve thousand were sealed. The Word of the Lord.
Thanks be to God.
Now it came to pass, when the time had come for Him to be received up, that He steadfastly set His face to go to Jerusalem, (52)
and sent messengers before His face. And as they went, they entered a village of the Samaritans, to prepare for Him. (53)
But they did not receive Him, because His face was set for the journey to Jerusalem. (54)
And when His disciples James and John saw this, they said, 'Lord, do You want us to command fire to come down from heaven and consume them, just as Elijah did?' (55)
But He turned and rebuked them, and said, 'You do not know what manner of spirit you are of. (56)
For the Son of Man did not come to destroy men's lives but to save them.' And they went to another village. (57)
Now it happened as they journeyed on the road, that someone said to Him, 'Lord, I will follow You wherever You go.' (58)
And Jesus said to him, 'Foxes have holes and birds of the air have nests, but the Son of Man has nowhere to lay His head.' (59)
Then He said to another, 'Follow Me.' But he said, 'Lord, let me first go and bury my father.' (60)
Jesus said to him, 'Let the dead bury their own dead, but you go and preach the kingdom of God.' (61)
And another also said, 'Lord, I will follow You, but let me first go and bid them farewell who are at my house.' (62)
But Jesus said to him, 'No one, having put his hand to the plow, and looking back, is fit for the kingdom of God.' The Gospel of the Lord.
Thanks be to God. Canticles can be prayed or sung after each reading or after all readings.
