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 mercy of the Lord is everlasting: Come let us adore him.


The Lessons



Psalm 106

(1) Praise the LORD. Give thanks to the LORD, for he is good; his love endures forever. (2) Who can proclaim the mighty acts of the LORD or fully declare his praise? (3) Blessed are they who maintain justice, who constantly do what is right. (4) Remember me, O LORD, when you show favor to your people, come to my aid when you save them,

(5) that I may enjoy the prosperity of your chosen ones, that I may share in the joy of your nation and join your inheritance in giving praise. (6) We have sinned, even as our fathers did; we have done wrong and acted wickedly. (7) When our fathers were in Egypt, they gave no thought to your miracles; they did not remember your many kindnesses, and they rebelled by the sea, the Red Sea. (8) Yet he saved them for his name's sake, to make his mighty power known.

(9) He rebuked the Red Sea, and it dried up; he led them through the depths as through a desert. (10) He saved them from the hand of the foe; from the hand of the enemy he redeemed them. (11) The waters covered their adversaries; not one of them survived. (12) Then they believed his promises and sang his praise.

(13) But they soon forgot what he had done and did not wait for his counsel. (14) In the desert they gave in to their craving; in the wasteland they put God to the test. (15) So he gave them what they asked for, but sent a wasting disease upon them. (16) In the camp they grew envious of Moses and of Aaron, who was consecrated to the LORD.

(17) The earth opened up and swallowed Dathan; it buried the company of Abiram. (18) Fire blazed among their followers; a flame consumed the wicked.

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.



Zechariah 10

(1) Ask the LORD for rain in the springtime; it is the LORD who makes the storm clouds. He gives showers of rain to men, and plants of the field to everyone. (2) The idols speak deceit, diviners see visions that lie; they tell dreams that are false, they give comfort in vain. Therefore the people wander like sheep oppressed for lack of a shepherd. (3) My anger burns against the shepherds, and I will punish the leaders; for the LORD Almighty will care for his flock, the house of Judah, and make them like a proud horse in battle. (4) From Judah will come the cornerstone, from him the tent peg, from him the battle bow, from him every ruler.

(5) Together they will be like mighty men trampling the muddy streets in battle. Because the LORD is with them, they will fight and overthrow the horsemen. (6) I will strengthen the house of Judah and save the house of Joseph. I will restore them because I have compassion on them. They will be as though I had not rejected them, for I am the LORD their God and I will answer them. (7) The Ephraimites will become like mighty men, and their hearts will be glad as with wine. Their children will see it and be joyful; their hearts will rejoice in the LORD. (8) I will signal for them and gather them in. Surely I will redeem them; they will be as numerous as before.

(9) Though I scatter them among the peoples, yet in distant lands they will remember me. They and their children will survive, and they will return. (10) I will bring them back from Egypt and gather them from Assyria. I will bring them to Gilead and Lebanon, and there will not be room enough for them. (11) They will pass through the sea of trouble; the surging sea will be subdued and all the depths of the Nile will dry up. Assyria's pride will be brought down and Egypt's scepter will pass away. (12) I will strengthen them in the LORD and in his name they will walk,' declares the LORD.

  The Word of the Lord.
  Thanks be to God.



Galatians 6

(1) Brothers, if someone is caught in a sin, you who are spiritual should restore him gently. But watch yourself, or you also may be tempted. (2) Carry each other's burdens, and in this way you will fulfill the law of Christ. (3) If anyone thinks he is something when he is nothing, he deceives himself. (4) Each one should test his own actions. Then he can take pride in himself, without comparing himself to somebody else,

(5) for each one should carry his own load. (6) Anyone who receives instruction in the word must share all good things with his instructor. (7) Do not be deceived: God cannot be mocked. A man reaps what he sows. (8) The one who sows to please his sinful nature, from that nature will reap destruction; the one who sows to please the Spirit, from the Spirit will reap eternal life.

(9) Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up. (10) Therefore, as we have opportunity, let us do good to all people, especially to those who belong to the family of believers.

  The Word of the Lord.
  Thanks be to God.



Luke 18

(15) People were also bringing babies to Jesus to have him touch them. When the disciples saw this, they rebuked them. (16) But Jesus called the children to him and said, 'Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of God belongs to such as these. (17) I tell you the truth, anyone who will not receive the kingdom of God like a little child will never enter it.' (18) A certain ruler asked him, 'Good teacher, what must I do to inherit eternal life?'

(19) Why do you call me good?' Jesus answered. 'No one is good-- except God alone. (20) You know the commandments: 'Do not commit adultery, do not murder, do not steal, do not give false testimony, honor your father and mother.'' (21) All these I have kept since I was a boy,' he said. (22) When Jesus heard this, he said to him, 'You still lack one thing. Sell everything you have and give to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven. Then come, follow me.'

(23) When he heard this, he became very sad, because he was a man of great wealth. (24) Jesus looked at him and said, 'How hard it is for the rich to enter the kingdom of God! (25) Indeed, it is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for a rich man to enter the kingdom of God.' (26) Those who heard this asked, 'Who then can be saved?'

(27) Jesus replied, 'What is impossible with men is possible with God.' (28) Peter said to him, 'We have left all we had to follow you!' (29) I tell you the truth,' Jesus said to them, 'no one who has left home or wife or brothers or parents or children for the sake of the kingdom of God (30) will fail to receive many times as much in this age and, in the age to come, eternal life.'

  The Gospel of the Lord.
  Thanks be to God.

 O King of all the ages.

Who can fail to do you homage, Lord,
and sing the praises of your Name? *
  for you only are the Holy One.
All nations will draw near
and fall down before you, *

Surely, it is God who saves me; *
  I will trust in him and not be afraid.
For the Lord is my stronghold
and my sure defense, *
  and he will be my Savior.
Therefore you shall draw water with rejoicing *
  from the springs of salvation.
And on that day you shall say, *
  Give thanks to the Lord and call upon his Name;
Make his deeds known among the peoples; *
  see that they remember that his Name is exalted.
Sing the praises of the Lord,
for he has done great things, *
  and this is known in all the world.
Cry aloud, inhabitants of Zion, ring out your joy, *
  for the great one in the midst of you is the Holy One of Israel.

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.


The Apostles' Creed

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.
