Mass of the Feria

I am grateful to my friends over at The Rosary Workshop for this wonderful photo illustrating today's Entrance Antiphon, Da pacem, Domine.

Give peace. O Lord, to them that patiently wait for you, that your prophets may be found faithful. Hear the prayers of your servant, and of your people Israel (Sir 36:18).
V. I rejoiced when it was said unto me, “Let us go to the house of the Lord” (Ps 121:1).


Brothers and sisters, let us acknowledge our sins,
that we may be ready to celebrate the sacred mysteries.

You were sent to heal the contrite of heart.
Kyrie, eleison.

You came to call sinners.
Christe, eleison.

You sit at the right hand of the Father to intercede for us.
Kyrie, eleison.

May Almighty God have mercy on us,
and lead us, with our sins forgiven,
into eternal life.


O God,
creator and ruler of all things,
turn your gaze upon us,
and, that we may experience the effect of your atonement,
grant that we may serve you with all our heart.
Through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son,
who lives and reigns with you in the unity of the Holy Spirit,
God, forever and ever.


That the holy Church of God in East and West
may hold fast to what she received from the Lord
on the night when He was betrayed,
by ceaselessly offering the Bread of Life and the Chalice of Salvation
for the life of the world,
to the Lord we pray: Christ, hear us. R. CHRIST, GRACIOUSLY HEAR US.

That the leaders of all nations
may denounce incitements to violence,
and seek to promote peace,
to the Lord we pray: Christ, hear us. R. CHRIST, GRACIOUSLY HEAR US.

That all who suffer
may turn with confidence to the Divine Physician
who marveled at the centurion’s faith
and healed the slave dear to him,
to the Lord we pray: Christ, hear us. R. CHRIST, GRACIOUSLY HEAR US.

That we may recognize
in the celebration of the Sacrifice of the Mass
the proclamation of the death of the Lord
until He comes,
to the Lord we pray: Christ, hear us. R. CHRIST, GRACIOUSLY HEAR US.


Receive in your mercy, O Lord,
we beseech you,
the prayers of your Church:
that overcoming all hostility and error,
she may freely and securely serve you.
Through Christ our Lord.


Moses consecrated an altar to the Lord,
offering upon it holocausts and sacrificing victims:
he made an evening sacrifice to the Lord God
for an odour of sweetness,
in the sight of the children of Israel (Ex 24:4–5).


Be appeased, O Lord, by our pleading,
and graciously receive these offerings of your servants,
so that the gift brought by each to the honour of your name
may further the salvation of all.
Through Christ our Lord.


O God, how precious is your mercy! The children of men take refuge beneath the shadow of your wings (Ps 35:8).


Lord, we beseech you
that the working of this heavenly gift
may so take hold of our souls and bodies,
that we may be moved,
not by our own impressions, but always
by the effect of your gift within us.
Through Christ our Lord.
