2nd Sunday in Ordinary Time, Year A
In the name of the +Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit. Amen
Grace, mercy and peace from God Our Father, and the Lord Jesus Christ, and the Holy Spirit be with you all
and also with you
May all the earth give you worship and praise, and break into song to your name, O God, Most High. (Psalm 65:4)
My dear friends in Christ, we come together this morning into the presence of Almighty God, our heavenly Father to give thanks for wonderful gift of his sacraments.
As we meet in broken bread and wine outpoured, we seek to encounter the Lamb of God, who takes away the sin of the whole world.
We pray therefore for the life, work and witness of this parish, praying that God can be proclaimed throughout this place and that more may be brought to encounter him through these sacred mysteries.
The grace of God has dawned upon the world
through our Saviour Jesus Christ,
who sacrificed himself for us to purify a people as his own.
Let us therefore confess our sins.
Let us pray
Father of heaven and earth,
hear our prayers,
and show us the way to peace in the world.
Grant this through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son,
who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit,
one God, for ever and ever.
Blessings on the King who comes in the name of the Lord! Peace in heaven and glory in the highest heavens!
Our Saviour Christ is the Prince of Peace.
Of the increase of his government and of peace
there shall be no end.
The peace of the Lord be always with you
and also with you
Prayer after Communion
you have nourished us with bread from heaven.
Fill us with your Spirit,
and make us one in peace and love.
We ask this through Christ our Lord. Amen.
The Lord be with you
And also with you
Bow your heads and pray for God’s Blessing…
Christ the Son of God perfect in you the image of his glory
and gladden your hearts with the good news of his kingdom;
and the blessing of God almighty,
the +Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit,
be among you and remain with you always.
The mass is ended. Go in the peace of Christ
Thanks be to God.
