All that you have done to us, O Lord, you have done in true justice, for we have sinned against you and we have failed to obey your commandments; but give glory to your name and deal with us according to the multitude of your mercy. V. Blessed are those whose way is blameless, who walk in the law of the Lord (Dan 3:31, 29, 30, 43, 42; Ps 118:1).


O God, who manifest your almighty power
most of all in showing mercy and granting pardon;
multiply your grace upon us
that we, running toward your promises,
may be made sharers in the good things of heaven.
Through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son,
who lives and reigns with you in the unity of the Holy Spirit,
God, forever and ever.


For the Church in every place;
that she may rejoice in the outpouring of the Holy Spirit upon all the people,
and especially on the little, the poor,
and those who are low and despised in the world,
to the Lord we pray: Christ, hear us. R. CHRIST, GRACIOUSLY HEAR US.

For world leaders and public servants;
that they may turn from the pursuit of personal gain
and, with integrity and courage,
seek justice for the poor and needy,
to the Lord we pray: Christ, hear us. R. CHRIST, GRACIOUSLY HEAR US.

For missionaries the world over;
for priests in special need or in spiritual darkness;
and for the nations of France and Vietnam,
entrusted to the protection of Saint Thérèse;
that they may turn to Thérèse, the universal missionary of love,
who promised to spend her heaven doing good on earth,
to the Lord we pray: Christ, hear us. R. CHRIST, GRACIOUSLY HEAR US.

For all who are struggling with hopelessness and depression,
for those tempted to suicide,
for the sick and the dying,
for the vulnerable and the weak,
and for prisoners;
that they may experience the intercession of Saint Thérèse,
and the light that shines from the Holy Face of Christ,
to the Lord we pray: Christ, hear us. R. CHRIST, GRACIOUSLY HEAR US.

For children;
that they may be preserved from every abuse and aggression,
and for those who give so much as a cup of water in the name of Christ;
may rejoice in a great reward,
to the Lord we pray: Christ, hear us. R. CHRIST, GRACIOUSLY HEAR US.

For all who have assembled today in the glory of the Resurrection;
that may experience in the Eucharist the outpouring of the Holy Spirit
by whom prophets are raised up in every time and place,
to the Lord we pray: Christ, hear us. R. CHRIST, GRACIOUSLY HEAR US.


God of compassion,
who illumine the dark night of faith
with the light of the Face of your Christ,
shine in our hearts that we may dare to call you Father
and, full of trust, surrender ourselves to your loving mercy.
By the intercession of Saint Thérèse,
preserve us in hope, and keep us from despair
until, at length, you call us
to the banquet that you yourself have prepared
for the little and the poor
in the kingdom where none but little children may enter.
Through Christ our Lord.


Upon the rivers of Babylon
there we sat and wept
when we remembered you, O Sion (Ps 136:1)


Merciful God,
grant that this our offering may be acceptable to you,
and open for us the wellspring of all blessings.
Through Christ our Lord.


It is truly right and just, our duty and our salvation,
always and everywhere to give you thanks,
Lord, holy Father, almighty and eternal God,
through Christ our Lord.

By the mystery of his death and resurrection
Christ has accomplished a wonderful work.

From the yoke of slavery to sin and death
he has called us to share his glory
and receive the name of chosen race and royal priesthood,
holy nation and people for your own possession.

He bids us everywhere proclaim your mighty works
for you, Father, have summoned us forth from darkness
into your own marvelous light.

Through Christ the choirs of angels
worship forever with joy before your majesty;
with them, we pray you, join our voices,
in this, their hymn of joyful supplication:


Be mindful of your word to your servant, O Lord, in which you gave me hope; this has consoled me in my affliction (Ps 118:49-50).


May this heavenly mystery, O Lord
repair us in mind and body;
that we who proclaim the death of Christ,
as sharers in his sufferings,
may also be sharers in his glory.
Through Christ our Lord.
