Send out your light and your truth, that they may lead me, and bring me to your holy hill and to your dwelling. Psalm 43:3 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:

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.
HEAR my cry, O God; Attend to my prayer. (2)
From the end of the earth I will cry to You, When my heart is overwhelmed; Lead me to the rock that is higher than I. (3)
For You have been a shelter for me, A strong tower from the enemy. (4)
I will abide in Your tabernacle forever; I will trust in the shelter of Your wings. Selah (5)
For You, O God, have heard my vows; You have given me the heritage of those who fear Your name. (6)
You will prolong the king's life, His years as many generations. (7)
He shall abide before God forever. Oh, prepare mercy and truth, which may preserve him! (8)
So I will sing praise to Your name forever, That I may daily perform my vows.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.
Truly my soul silently waits for God; From Him comes my salvation. (2)
He only is my rock and my salvation; He is my defense; I shall not be greatly moved. (3)
How long will you attack a man? You shall be slain, all of you, Like a leaning wall and a tottering fence. (4)
They only consult to cast him down from his high position; They delight in lies; They bless with their mouth, But they curse inwardly. Selah (5)
My soul, wait silently for God alone, For my expectation is from Him. (6)
He only is my rock and my salvation; He is my defense; I shall not be moved. (7)
In God is my salvation and my glory; The rock of my strength, And my refuge, is in God. (8)
Trust in Him at all times, you people; Pour out your heart before Him; God is a refuge for us. Selah (9)
Surely men of low degree are a vapor, Men of high degree are a lie; If they are weighed on the scales, They are altogether lighter than vapor. (10)
Do not trust in oppression, Nor vainly hope in robbery; If riches increase, Do not set your heart on them. (11)
God has spoken once, Twice I have heard this: That power belongs to God. (12)
Also to You, O Lord, belongs mercy; For You render to each one according to his work.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.
Moreover the LORD answered Job, and said: (1)
Can you draw out Leviathan with a hook, Or snare his tongue with a line which you lower? (2)
Can you put a reed through his nose, Or pierce his jaw with a hook? (3)
Will he make many supplications to you? Will he speak softly to you? (4)
Will he make a covenant with you? Will you take him as a servant forever? (5)
Will you play with him as with a bird, Or will you leash him for your maidens? (6)
Will your companions make a banquet of him? Will they apportion him among the merchants? (7)
Can you fill his skin with harpoons, Or his head with fishing spears? (8)
Lay your hand on him; Remember the battle -- Never do it again! (9)
Indeed, any hope of overcoming him is false; Shall one not be overwhelmed at the sight of him? (10)
No one is so fierce that he would dare stir him up. Who then is able to stand against Me? (11)
Who has preceded Me, that I should pay him? Everything under heaven is Mine. The Word of the Lord.
Thanks be to God.
Now when they had gone through Phrygia and the region of Galatia, they were forbidden by the Holy Spirit to preach the word in Asia. (7)
After they had come to Mysia, they tried to go into Bithynia, but the Spirit did not permit them. (8)
So passing by Mysia, they came down to Troas. (9)
And a vision appeared to Paul in the night. A man of Macedonia stood and pleaded with him, saying, 'Come over to Macedonia and help us.' (10)
Now after he had seen the vision, immediately we sought to go to Macedonia, concluding that the Lord had called us to preach the gospel to them. (11)
Therefore, sailing from Troas, we ran a straight course to Samothrace, and the next day came to Neapolis, (12)
and from there to Philippi, which is the foremost city of that part of Macedonia, a colony. And we were staying in that city for some days. (13)
And on the Sabbath day we went out of the city to the riverside, where prayer was customarily made; and we sat down and spoke to the women who met there. (14)
Now a certain woman named Lydia heard us. She was a seller of purple from the city of Thyatira, who worshiped God. The Lord opened her heart to heed the things spoken by Paul. (15)
And when she and her household were baptized, she begged us, saying, 'If you have judged me to be faithful to the Lord, come to my house and stay.' So she persuaded us. (16)
Now it happened, as we went to prayer, that a certain slave girl possessed with a spirit of divination met us, who brought her masters much profit by fortune-telling. The Word of the Lord.
Thanks be to God.
Now a great many of the Jews knew that He was there; and they came, not for Jesus' sake only, but that they might also see Lazarus, whom He had raised from the dead. (10)
But the chief priests plotted to put Lazarus to death also, (11)
because on account of him many of the Jews went away and believed in Jesus. (12)
The next day a great multitude that had come to the feast, when they heard that Jesus was coming to Jerusalem, (13)
took branches of palm trees and went out to meet Him, and cried out: 'Hosanna! 'Blessed is He who comes in the name of the LORD!' The King of Israel!' (14)
Then Jesus, when He had found a young donkey, sat on it; as it is written: (15)
Fear not, daughter of Zion; Behold, your King is coming, Sitting on a donkey's colt.' (16)
His disciples did not understand these things at first; but when Jesus was glorified, then they remembered that these things were written about Him and that they had done these things to Him. (17)
Therefore the people, who were with Him when He called Lazarus out of his tomb and raised him from the dead, bore witness. (18)
For this reason the people also met Him, because they heard that He had done this sign. (19)
The Pharisees therefore said among themselves, 'You see that you are accomplishing nothing. Look, the world has gone after Him!' The Gospel of the Lord.
Thanks be to God. Canticles can be prayed or sung after each reading or after all readings.

Splendor and honor and kingly power *

For you created everything that is, *
and by your will they were created

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, *

Be worship and praise, dominion and splendor, *
