Liturgy: Ordinary 4, Year A

 

Fourth 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

 

My dear friends in Christ, we gather together this morning to offer this holy sacrifice and to encounter God in prayer, worship and sacrament.

 

We pray especially today for life work and witness of the parish, praying that we may be open to the values of the Beatitudes, the values of the Gospel.

 

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…

 

 

The Collect

Let us pray

 

Lord our God,

Help us to love you with all our hearts

and to love all people as you love them.

We make our prayer through Jesus Christ, our Lord

who is alive and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit,

ever one God, for ever and ever.

 

All    Amen.

 

Alleluia

 

Alleluia, alleluia.

Rejoice and be glad:

your reward will be great in heaven.

All    Alleluia.

 

The Peace

 

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

 

Lord, you invigorate us with this help to our salvation.

By this eucharist give the true faith continued growth throughout the world. We ask this in the name of Jesus, the Lord

 

Amen

be among you and remain with you always.

All    Amen.
