ENTRANCE ANTIPHON: To you, I lift up my soul, O my God. In you, I have trusted; let me not be put to shame. Nor let my enemies exult over me; and let none who hope in you be put to shame.

FIRST READING: Isaiah 63:16-17, 64:1,3-8.


RESPONSE: O God, bring us back; Let your face shine on us, and we shall be saved. 1. O shepherd of Israel, hear us, enthroned on the cherubim, shine forth. Rouse up your might and come to save us. ℟ 2. God of hosts, turn again, we implore; look down from heaven and see. Visit this vine and protect it, the vine your right hand has planted. ℟ 3. May your hand be on the man at your right hand, the son of man you have confirmed as your own. And we shall never forsake you again; give us life that we may call upon your name. ℟

SECOND READING: 1 Corinthians 1:3-9.

GOSPEL ACCLAMATION: Alleluia, alleluia! Let us see, O Lord, your mercy, and grant us your salvation. Alleluia.

GOSPEL: Mark 13:33-37.


My Jesus,

I believe that you are present

in the Most Holy Sacrament.

I love You above all things,

and I desire to receive You in my soul.

Since I cannot at this moment

receive You sacramentally,

come at least spiritually into my heart.

I embrace You as if You were already there

and unite myself wholly to You.

Never permit me to be separated from You.


COMMUNION ANTIPHON: The Lord will bestow his bounty, and our earth shall yield its increase.
