The Gospel reading may be used here.

'Lord, Lord, a God of tenderness and compassion'

With the two tablets of stone in his hands, Moses went up the mountain of Sinai in the early morning as the Lord had commanded him. And the Lord descended in the form of a cloud, and Moses stood with him there.

He called on the name of the Lord. The Lord passed before him and proclaimed, ĎThe Lord, a God of tenderness and compassion, slow to anger rich in kindness and faithfulness.í And Moses bowed down to the ground at once and worshipped. ĎIf I have indeed won your favour, Lord,í he said Ďlet my Lord come with us, I beg. True, they are a headstrong people, but forgive us our faults and our sins, and adopt us as your heritage.í

.A time of silence may follow to reflect on Godís word.

The Canticle The Te Deum

We praise you, O God:

we acclaim you as the Lord.

Everlasting Father,

all the world bows down before you.

All the angels sing your praise,

the hosts of heaven and all the angelic powers,

all the cherubim and seraphim

call out to you in unending song:

Holy, Holy, Holy,

is the Lord God of angel hosts!

The heavens and the earth are filled

with your majesty and glory.

The glorious band of apostles,

the noble company of prophets,

the white-robed army who shed their blood for Christ, all sing your praise.

And to the ends of the earth

your holy Church proclaims her faith in you:

Father, whose majesty is boundless,

your true and only Son, who is to be adored,

the Holy Spirit sent to be our Advocate.

You, Christ, are the king of glory,

Son of the eternal Father.

When you took our nature to save mankind

you did not shrink from birth in the Virginís womb.

You overcame the power of death

opening the Fatherís kingdom to all who believe in you.

Enthroned at Godís right hand in the glory of the Father,

 

you will come in judgement according to your promise.

You redeemed your people by your precious blood.

Come, we implore you, to our aid.

Grant us with the saints

a place in eternal glory.

Lord, save your people

and bless your inheritance.

Rule them and uphold them

for ever and ever.

Day by day we praise you:

we acclaim you now and to all eternity.

In your goodness, Lord, keep us free from sin.

Have mercy on us, Lord, have mercy.

May your mercy always be with us, Lord,

for we have hoped in you.

In you, Lord, we put our trust:

we shall not be put to shame.

Prayers and Intercessions.

Other petitions may be added to those given.

Full of joy on this morning, we adore and glorify the Father, Son and Holy Spirit, saying:

Glory be to the Father and to the Son and

to the Holy Spirit.

Holy Father, of ourselves we are nothing. We beg you to give us the Holy Spirit:

may he strengthen us in our weakness and intercede for us before your face.

Glory be to the Father and to the Son and

to the Holy Spirit.

Son of God, you asked the Father to send the Comforter to your Church:

may he, the Spirit of truth, remain with us always.

Glory be to the Father and to the Son and

to the Holy Spirit.

Come, Holy Spirit, and give us an abundance of your fruits. Make us loving, joyful, peaceful, patient and kind:

give us integrity, forbearance, gentleness, faith, modesty, temperance and chastity.

Glory be to the Father and to the Son and

to the Holy Spirit.

Father almighty, you sent the Spirit of your Son into our hearts:

fill us with your Spirit, that we may be your heirs and co-heirs with Christ.

Glory be to the Father and to the Son and

to the Holy Spirit.

Lord Jesus Christ, you sent the Paraclete from the Fatherís side to be your witness:

make us also your witnesses before all people.

Glory be to the Father and to the Son and

to the Holy Spirit.

A time of silent prayer may follow.

Please remember these people in your prayers

 

Our Father, who art in heaven,
hallowed be thy name.
Thy kingdom come.
Thy will be done on earth, as it is in heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread,
and forgive us our trespasses,
as we forgive those who trespass against us,
and lead us not into temptation,
but deliver us from evil.

Amen.

The Concluding Prayer of the Sunday is then said.

God our Father,

who by sending into the world

the Word of truth and the Spirit of sanctification

made known to the human race your wondrous mystery,

grant us, we pray, that in professing the true faith,

we may acknowledge the Trinity of eternal glory

and adore your Unity, powerful in majesty.

Through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son,

who lives and reigns with you

in the unity of the Holy Spirit,

one God, for ever and ever.

Amen.

Amen.

MAKING A SPIRITUAL COMMUNION.

Even if we cannot be at mass and receive Holy Communion, we can always make a Spiritual Communion. God will always fill our hearts with his grace if we ask.

My Jesus, 
I believe that You
are present in the Most Holy Sacrament. 
I love You above all things, 
and I desire to receive You into my soul. 
Since I cannot at this moment
receive You sacramentally, 
come at least spiritually into my heart. I embrace You as if You were already there and unite myself wholly to You.Never permit me to be separated from You.†† Amen.
