The Lessons

 

The people sit.

Reading from Revelation

 

I looked, and there was a great multitude that no one could count, from every

nation, from all tribes and peoples and languages, standing before the throne and

before the Lamb, robed in white, with palm branches in their hands. They cried out

in a loud voice, saying, ‘Salvation belongs to our God who is seated on the throne,

and to the Lamb!’ And all the angels stood around the throne and around the

elders and the four living creatures, and they fell on their faces before the throne

and worshipped God, singing, ‘Amen! Blessing and glory and wisdom and

thanksgiving and honour and power and might be to our God for ever and ever!

Amen.’ Then one of the elders addressed me, saying, ‘Who are these, robed in

white, and where have they come from?’ I said to him, ‘Sir, you are the one that

knows.’ Then he said to me, ‘These are they who have come out of the great

ordeal; they have washed their robes and made them white in the blood of the

Lamb. For this reason they are before the throne of God, and worship him day

and night within his temple, and the one who is seated on the throne will shelter

them. They will hunger no more, and thirst no more; the sun will not strike them,

nor any scorching heat; for the Lamb at the centre of the throne will be their

shepherd, and he will guide them to springs of the water of life, and God will wipe

away every tear from their eyes.’

 

After each Reading, the Reader may say

The Word of the Lord.

People Thanks be to God

 

Psalm 34:1-10, 22

1 I will bless the LORD at all times; *

his praise shall ever be in my mouth.

2 I will glory in the LORD; *

let the humble hear and rejoice.

3 Proclaim with me the greatness of the LORD; *

let us exalt his Name together.

4 I sought the LORD, and he answered me *

and delivered me out of all my terror.

5 Look upon him and be radiant, *

and let not your faces be ashamed.

6 I called in my affliction and the LORD heard me *

and saved me from all my troubles.

7 The angel of the LORD encompasses those who fear him, *

and he will deliver them.

8 Taste and see that the LORD is good; *

happy are they who trust in him!

9 Fear the LORD, you that are his saints, *

for those who fear him lack nothing.

10 The young lions lack and suffer hunger, *

but those who seek the LORD lack nothing that is good.

22 The LORD ransoms the life of his servants, *

and none will be punished who trust in him.

THE HOLY GOSPEL

Then, all standing, the Deacon or a Priest reads the Gospel, first saying

 

The Holy Gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ according to Matthew.

 

People Glory to you, Lord Christ.

When Jesus saw the crowds, he went up the mountain; and after he sat down, his

disciples came to him. Then he began to speak, and taught them, saying: ‘Blessed

are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven. ‘Blessed are those who

mourn, for they will be comforted. ‘Blessed are the meek, for they will inherit the

earth. ‘Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they will be

filled. ‘Blessed are the merciful, for they will receive mercy. ‘Blessed are the pure

in heart, for they will see God. ‘Blessed are the peacemakers, for they will be

called children of God. ‘Blessed are those who are persecuted for righteousness’

sake, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven. ‘Blessed are you when people revile

you and persecute you and utter all kinds of evil against you falsely on my

account. Rejoice and be glad, for your reward is great in heaven, for in the same

way they persecuted the prophets who were before you.

 

After the Gospel, the Reader says

The Gospel of the Lord.

People Praise to you, Lord Christ.

The Celebrant concludes the Renewal of Vows as follows

May Almighty God, the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has given us a new birth by water

and the Holy Spirit, and bestowed upon us the forgiveness of sins, keep us in eternal life by his

grace, in Christ Jesus our Lord. Amen.

 

Confession of Sin

 

The Deacon or Celebrant says

Let us confess our sins against God and our neighbor.

 

Silence may be kept.

 

Minister and People

Most merciful God, we confess that we have sinned against you in thought, word, and

deed, by what we have done, and by what we have left undone. We have not loved you

with our whole heart; we have not loved our neighbors as ourselves. We are truly sorry

and we humbly repent. For the sake of your Son Jesus Christ, have mercy on us and

forgive us; that we may delight in your will, and walk in your ways, to the glory of your

Name. Amen.

 

The Priest, stands and says

Almighty God have mercy on you, forgive you all your sins through our Lord Jesus Christ,

strengthen you in all goodness, and by the power of the Holy Spirit keep you in eternal life.

Amen.

 

The Peace

 

All stand. The Celebrant says to the people

 

The peace of the Lord be always with you.

 

People And also with you.

Then the Ministers and People may greet one another in the name of the Lord.

The Holy Communion

 

The Great Thanksgiving Eucharistic Prayer D

The people remain standing. The Celebrant, whether bishop or priest, faces them and sings or says

The Lord be with you.

People And also with you.

Celebrant Lift up your hearts.

People We lift them to the Lord.

Celebrant Let us give thanks to the Lord our God.

 

People It is right to give him thanks and praise.

 

Then, facing the Holy Table, the Celebrant proceeds

It is truly right to glorify you, Father, and to give you thanks; for you alone are God, living and

true, dwelling in light inaccessible from before time and for ever. Fountain of life and source of

all goodness, you made all things and fill them with your blessing; you created them to rejoice in

the splendor of your radiance.

Countless throngs of angels stand before you to serve you night and day; and, beholding the

glory of your presence, they offer you unceasing praise. Joining with them, and giving voice to

every creature under heaven, we acclaim you, and glorify your Name, as we sing (say),

 

Celebrant and People

Holy, holy, holy Lord, God of power and might,

heaven and earth are full of your glory.

Hosanna in the highest.

Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord.

Hosanna in the highest.

 

The people stand or kneel. The the Celebrant continues

We acclaim you, holy Lord, glorious in power. Your mighty works reveal your wisdom and love.

You formed us in your own image, giving the whole world into our care, so that, in obedience to

you, our Creator, we might rule and serve all your creatures. When our disobedience took us far

from you, you did not abandon us to the power of death. In your mercy you came to our help, so

that in seeking you we might find you. Again and again you called us into covenant with you,

and through the prophets you taught us to hope for salvation.

Father, you loved the world so much that in the fullness of time you sent your only Son to be our

Savior. Incarnate by the Holy Spirit, born of the Virgin Mary, he lived as one of us, yet without

sin. To the poor he proclaimed the good news of salvation; to prisoners, freedom; to the

sorrowful, joy. To fulfill your purpose he gave himself up to death; and, rising from the grave,

destroyed death, and made the whole creation new.

And, that we might live no longer for ourselves, but for him who died and rose for us, he sent the

Holy Spirit, his own first gift for those who believe, to complete his work in the world, and to

bring to fulfillment the sanctification of all.

When the hour had come for him to be glorified by you, his heavenly Father, having loved his

own who were in the world, he loved them to the end; at supper with them he took bread, and

when he had given thanks to you, he broke it, and gave it to his disciples, and said, “Take, eat:

This is my Body, which is given for you. Do this for the remembrance of me.”

After supper he took the cup of wine; and when he had given thanks, he gave it to them, and

said, “Drink this, all of you: This is my Blood of the new Covenant, which is shed for you and for

many for the forgiveness of sins. Whenever you drink it, do this for the remembrance of me.”

 

Father, we now celebrate this memorial of our redemption. Recalling Christ’s death and his

descent among the dead, proclaiming his resurrection and ascension to your right hand,

awaiting his coming in glory; and offering to you, from the gifts you have given us, this bread

and this cup, we praise you and we bless you.

 

Celebrant and People

We praise you, we bless you,

we give thanks to you,

and we pray to you, Lord our God.

 

The Celebrant continues

Lord, we pray that in your goodness and mercy your Holy Spirit may descend upon us, and

upon these gifts, sanctifying them and showing them to be holy gifts for your holy people, the

bread of life and the cup of salvation, the Body and Blood of your Son Jesus Christ. Grant that

all who share this bread and cup may become one body and one spirit, a living sacrifice in

Christ, to the praise of your Name.

Remember, Lord, your one holy catholic and apostolic Church, redeemed by the blood of your

Christ. Reveal its unity, guard its faith, and preserve it in peace.

Remember all who have died in the peace of Christ, and those whose faith is known to you

alone; remembering especially (names read aloud here) bring them into the place of eternal joy

and light.

And grant that we may find our inheritance with the Blessed Virgin Mary, with patriarchs,

prophets, apostles, and martyrs, with St. Peter and all the saints who have found favor with you

in ages past. We praise you in union with them and give you glory through your Son Jesus

Christ our Lord.

Through Christ, and with Christ, and in Christ, all honor and glory are yours, Almighty God and

Father, in the unity of the Holy Spirit, for ever and ever. AMEN.

 

And now, as our Savior Christ has taught us, we are bold to say,

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. For thine is the kingdom, and the

power, and the glory, for ever and ever. Amen.

 

The Breaking of the Bread

 

The Celebrant breaks the consecrated Bread.

A period of silence is kept.

 

Then may be said

[Alleluia.] Christ our Passover is sacrificed for us;

Therefore let us keep the feast. [Alleluia.]

Facing the people, the Celebrant says the following Invitation

The Gifts of God for the People of God.

and may add Take them in remembrance that Christ died for you, and feed on him in your

hearts by faith, with thanksgiving.

 

The ministers receive the Sacrament in both kinds, and then immediately deliver it to the people.

The Bread and the Cup are given to the communicants with these words

The Body of Christ, the bread of heaven. [Amen.]

The Blood of Christ, the cup of salvation. [Amen.]

During the ministration of Communion, hymns, psalms, or anthems may be sung.

 

After Communion, the Celebrant says

Let us pray.

Celebrant and People

Eternal God, heavenly Father, you have graciously accepted us as living members of

your Son our Savior Jesus Christ, and you have fed us with spiritual food in the

Sacrament of his Body and Blood. Send us now into the world in peace, and grant us

strength and courage to love and serve you with gladness and singleness of heart;

through Christ our Lord. Amen.
