Entrance Antiphon

Pity me, Lord, as thou seest me friendless and forlorn.
Quit my heart of its burden, deliver me from my distress.
Restless and forlorn, I claim thy pity,
to my sins be merciful.
V. All my heart goes out to thee, O Lord my God.
Belie not the trust I have inthee,
let not my enemies boast of my downfall.
(Ps 24: 16–18, trans. Msgr. Ronald Knox)


O God, whose never-failing providence
sets in order all things both in heaven and on earth;
put away from us, we entreat you, all hurtful things,
and give us all that will be for our good.
Through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son,
who lives and reigns with you in the unity of the Holy Spirit,
God, forever and ever.

General Intercessions

That the Holy Catholic Church
may summon all the peoples of the world
to keep the words of the Lord in memory,
to treasure them in the heart,
to bind them close to their hands,
and let them hang before their eyes,
to the Lord we pray: Christ, hear us. R. CHRIST, GRACIOUSLY HEAR US.

That those holding public office and those seeking it
may speak and act in the fear of God
and in obedience to his commandments,
lest their projects, being built upon sand, fall into ruin,
to the Lord we pray: Christ, hear us. R. CHRIST, GRACIOUSLY HEAR US.

That all who suffer, especially the peoples of China and Myanmar,
may be illumined by the light of the Holy Face of Christ,
in his merciful love find healing
and in the works of his disciples, relief,
to the Lord we pray: Christ, hear us. R. CHRIST, GRACIOUSLY HEAR US.

That each of us present here
may receive the Word of God
in imitation of the Blessed Virgin Mary who treasured it in her Immaculate Heart
and kept that Word ever before her eyes,
to the Lord we pray: Christ, hear us. R. CHRIST, GRACIOUSLY HEAR US.

Collect at the General Intercessions

Almighty and ever-living God,
who have redeemed us
by the Blood of your only-begotten Son
and who justify those
who receive in faith the gift of your grace,
grant that we who glory in that same Precious Blood,
may offer you the acceptable sacrifice of obedience to your will.
Through Christ our Lord.

Offertory Antiphon

Those who acknowledge thy Name, Lord, can trust thee;
never was man forsaken that had recourse to thee.
Sing, then, to the Lord who dwells in Sion:
for he does not forget the afflicted when they cry to him.
(Ps 9: 11, 12, 13, trans. Msgr. Ronald Knox)

Prayer Over the Offerings

Trusting in your faithful love, O Lord,
we hasten to your sacred altar with our gifts,
that, by your purifying grace,
the very mysteries we serve may make us clean.
Through Christ our Lord.

Communion Antiphon

And now I cry to thee, the God who ever hearest me;
turn thy ear towards me, and listen to my plea.
(Ps 16:6, trans. Msgr. Ronald Knox)

Prayer After Communion

O Lord, who have nourished us
with the Body and Blood of your Son,
rule us, we beseech you, by your Spirit,
that praising you not by word and tongue alone,
but also by deeds, and in truth,
we may be found worthy of entering the kingdom of heaven.
Through Christ our Lord.
