In Me you will produce much fruit

Gathering Prayer

 

It is solely within your power, O Lord, for you are omnipotent and eternal to bring to perfection the Easter Mystery within us. You have recreated us by Baptism and given us the Feast of Easter to renew and increase that mystery within us. May these days bring an abundance of fruit to please you and to give us the joy that never ends.

In Jesus’ name we pray, Amen.

    “May your hearts live forever!”

 

All the ends of the earth

before him shall bend

    all who go down into the dust.

MY LORD AND MY GOD!

Gathering Prayer for Octave of Easter

 

Lord our God, your mercy knows no end. In your wisdom you have given us each year the Easter Feast of Jesus’ death and resurrection so that we grow in a grasp of the sacred reality of being baptized and cleansed of our sins, of being reborn with new life through your Holy Spirit, of drinking more deeply of the Blood of your Son who redeemed us. This all results from your enkindling the gift of faith within us and its accompanying heavenly graces.

 

 

 

Responsorial Psalm

118:2-4, 13-15, 22-24

 

  1.  (1) Give thanks to the Lord for he is good, his love is everlasting.

Let the house of Israel say,
    “His mercy endures forever.”
Let the house of Aaron say,
    “His mercy endures forever.”
Let those who fear the LORD say,
    “His mercy endures forever.”

I was hard pressed and was falling,
    but the LORD helped me.
My strength and my courage is the LORD,
    and he has been my savior.
The joyful shout of victory
    in the tents of the just:

The stone which the builders rejected
    has become the cornerstone.
By the LORD has this been done;
    it is wonderful in our eyes.
This is the day the LORD has made;
    let us be glad and rejoice in it.

R.  Give thanks to the Lord for he is good, his love is everlasting.

Easter Springtime

Gathering Prayer for Palm Sunday

 

After you reminded us at the beginning of Lent that we are mortal human beings you show us today, immortal and eternal God, who we are in relation to you by giving us the example in your Son’s emptying himself so we can imitate him since by entering human flesh he was capable of undergoing the cross for our salvation. This proved his love for us that he wanted us to share in his risen glory at your right hand and left us an example in his own passion through which we, too, can find the way of your loving grace and eternal life together with him. For this grace we ask during these holy days.

 

 

Responsorial Psalm 22:8-9, 17-18, 19-20, 23-24 (2a)

My God, my God, why have you abandoned me?


All who see me scoff at me;

    they mock me with parted lips, they wag their heads:

“He relied on the LORD; let him deliver him,

    let him rescue him, if he loves him.”

 

 

Indeed, many dogs surround me,

    a pack of evildoers closes in upon me;

They have pierced my hands and my feet;

    I can count all my bones.

 

They divide my garments among them,

    and for my vesture they cast lots.

But you, O LORD, be not far from me;

    O my help, hasten to aid me.

 

I will proclaim your name to my brethren;

    in the midst of the assembly I will praise you:

“You who fear the LORD, praise him;

    all you descendants of Jacob, give glory to him;

    revere him, all you descendants of Israel!”

Palms of Victory

Gathering Prayer

It is our prayer to you in this assembly today, Lord, the God of your people whom you have gathered here, that you favor us with the same love you poured out on your Son to inspire him to give his life for your creatures in this world. In this way we can move forward with your assistance to approach the Easter feasts more readily according to your will.

 

Responsorial Psalm — 51:3-4, 12-13, 14-15

 

  1. (12a)  Create a clean heart in me, O God.

     

Have mercy on me, O God, in your goodness;
    in the greatness of your compassion wipe out my offense.
Thoroughly wash me from my guilt
    and of my sin cleanse me.

 

A clean heart create for me, O God,
    and a steadfast spirit renew within me.
Cast me not out from your presence,
    and your Holy Spirit take not from me.

 

Give me back the joy of your salvation,
    and a willing spirit sustain in me.
I will teach transgressors your ways,
    and sinners shall return to you.

 

  1. Create a clean heart in me, O God.

God’s Fatherly love for us sons and daughters

Gathering Prayer

Lord, the salvation of all mankind is the goal of your sending your Word in the flesh reconciling us to you in a most marvelous way. Kindly grant, we pray, that during these Lenten days your Christian people with ready devotion and spirited faith make their way in a lively and joyful manner toward the solemnities just a few days away.

 

Responsorial Psalm — 137:1-2, 3, 4-5, 6

 

  1. (6ab)  Let my tongue be silenced, if I ever forget you!

By the streams of Babylon
    we sat and wept
    when we remembered Zion.
On the aspens of that land
    we hung up our harps.

For there our captors asked of us
    the lyrics of our songs,
And our despoilers urged us to be joyous:
    “Sing for us the songs of Zion!”

How could we sing a song of the LORD
    in a foreign land?
If I forget you, Jerusalem,
    may my right hand be forgotten!

May my tongue cleave to my palate
    if I remember you not,
If I place not Jerusalem
    ahead of my joy.

  1. Let my tongue be silenced, if I ever forget you!

Purification of the Temple

Gathering Prayer

 

Sin is reparable and you, O Lord, have provided the remedy we need through fasting, prayer and works of charity. This is all possible because you are the unique source of goodness and merciful love. In your mercy you have made us aware of our weakness and lowliness to which we humbly now confess before you. In your loving kindness you have shown us our frailty so that you can show us the saving power of your love to restore us to life.

Responsorial Psalm — Psalm 19:8-11

 

  1. (John 6:68) Lord, you have the words of everlasting life.

The law of the LORD is perfect,

    refreshing the soul;

The decree of the LORD is trustworthy,

    giving wisdom to the simple.

 

The precepts of the LORD are right,

    rejoicing the heart;

the command of the LORD is clear,

    enlightening the eye.

 

The fear of the LORD is pure,

    enduring forever;

the ordinances of the LORD are true,

    all of them just.

 

They are more precious than gold,

    than a heap of purest gold;

sweeter also than syrup

    or honey from the comb.

The Lord preserved the Covenant so much does he love mankind

 

 

Gathering Prayer

 

Be so good, O Lord, to grant us this favor which only your almighty power can make possible: that through the annual observance of our Lenten traditions we become more and more faithful to your covenant with all of creation in Christ Jesus. Unfold the mysteries of your Son so that in his light we put into practice daily the eternal mystery of your saving love.

 

Our response today to the word of God — is Psalm 25. Lent is a renewal of the covenant. Those who keep it have eternal life.

Responsorial Psalm — Psalm 25:4-5, 6-7, 8-9

 

  1. (cf. 10) Your ways, O Lord, are love and truth

to those who keep your covenant.

Your ways, O LORD, make known to me;
    teach me your paths,
Guide me in your truth and teach me,
    for you are God my savior.

Remember that your compassion, O LORD,
    and your love are from of old.
In your kindness remember me,
    because of your goodness, O LORD.

Good and upright is the LORD,
    thus he shows sinners the way.
He guides the humble to justice,
    and he teaches the humble his way.

  1. Your ways, O Lord, are love and truth

to those who keep your covenant.
