THE LITURGY OF THE WORD


THE FIRST LESSON Isaiah 61:1-4


The spirit of the Lord GOD is upon me, because the LORD has anointed me; he has sent me to bring good news to the oppressed, to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives, and release to the prisoners; to proclaim the year of the Lord’s favor, and the day of vengeance of our God; to comfort all who mourn; to provide for those who mourn in Zion— to give them a garland instead of ashes, the oil of gladness instead of mourning, the mantle of praise instead of a faint spirit. They will be called oaks of righteousness, the planting of the LORD, to display his glory.


They shall build up the ancient ruins, they shall raise up the former devastations; they shall repair the ruined cities, the devastations of many generations.


The Word of the Lord.

Thanks be to God.


PSALM 145

1 I will exalt you, O God my King,

and bless your Name for ever and ever.

2 Every day will I bless you *

and praise your Name for ever and ever.


3 Great is the LORD and greatly to be praised;

there is no end to his greatness.

4 One generation shall praise your works to another

and shall declare your power.


5 I will ponder the glorious splendor of your majesty

and all your marvelous works.

6 They shall speak of the might of your wondrous acts,

and I will tell of your greatness.


7 They shall publish the remembrance of your great goodness;

they shall sing of your righteous deeds.

8 The LORD is gracious and full of compassion, *

slow to anger and of great kindness.


9 The LORD is loving to everyone *

and his compassion is over all his works.

10 All your works praise you, O LORD, *

and your faithful servants bless you.


11 They make known the glory of your kingdom *

and speak of your power;

12 That the peoples may know of your power *

and the glorious splendor of your kingdom.


13 our kingdom is an everlasting kingdom; *

your dominion endures throughout all ages.

14 The LORD is faithful in all his words *

and merciful in all his deeds.


15 The LORD upholds all those who fall; *

he lifts up those who are bowed down.

16 The eyes of all wait upon you, O LORD, *

and you give them their food in due season.


17 You open wide your hand *

and satisfy the needs of every living creature.

18 The LORD is righteous in all his ways *

and loving in all his works.


19 The LORD is near to those who call upon him, *

to all who call upon him faithfully.

20 He fulfills the desire of those who fear him; *

he hears their cry and helps them.


21 The LORD preserves all those who love him, *

but he destroys all the wicked.

22 My mouth shall speak the praise of the LORD; *

let all flesh bless his holy Name for ever and ever.


THE SECOND LESSON: Romans 12:1-8


II appeal to you therefore, brothers and sisters, by the mercies of God, to present your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and acceptable to God, which is your spiritual worship. Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your minds, so that you may discern what is the will of God—what is good and acceptable and perfect. For by the grace given to me I say to everyone among you not to think of yourself more highly than you ought to think, but to think with sober judgment, each according to the measure of faith that God has assigned. For as in one body we have many members, and not all the members have the same function, so we, who are many, are one body in Christ, and individually we are members one of another. We have gifts that differ according to the grace given to us: prophecy, in proportion to faith; ministry, in ministering; the teacher, in teaching; the exhorter, in exhortation; the giver, in generosity; the leader, in diligence; the compassionate, in cheerfulness.


The Word of the Lord.

Thanks be to God.


SEQUENCE HYMN: Eternal Ruler of the Ceaseless Round


THE GOSPEL: Luke 9: 12-17

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

Glory to you, Lord Christ.


The day was drawing to a close, and the twelve came to him and said, “Send the crowd away, so that they may go into the surrounding villages and countryside, to lodge and get provisions; for we are here in a deserted place.” But he said to them, “You give them something to eat.” They said, “We have no more than five loaves and two fish—unless we are to go and buy food for all these people.” For there were about five thousand men. And he said to his disciples, “Make them sit down in groups of about fifty each.” They did so and made them all sit down. And taking the five loaves and the two fish, he looked up to heaven, and blessed and broke them, and gave them to the disciples to set before the crowd. And all ate and were filled. What was left over was gathered up, twelve baskets of broken pieces.


The Gospel of the Lord.

Praise to you, Lord Christ.


THE SERMON: The Right Reverend Matt Heyd


THE NICENE CREED

We believe in one God, the Father, the Almighty, maker of heaven and earth, of all that is seen and unseen. We believe in one Lord, Jesus Christ, the only Son of God, Eternally begotten of the Father. God from God, Light from Light, true God from true God, begotten not made, of one Being with the Father.

Through him all things were made. For us and for our salvation he came down from heaven: by the power of the Holy Spirit he became incarnate from the Virgin Mary, and was made man. For our sake he was crucified under Pontius Pilate; he suffered death and was buried. On the third day he rose again in accordance with the Scriptures; he ascended into heaven and is seated at the right hand of the Father.

He will come again in glory to judge the living and the dead, and his kingdom will have no end. We believe in the Holy Spirit, the Lord, the giver of life, who proceeds from the Father and the Son. With the Father and the Son he is worshiped and glorified. He has spoken through the Prophets.

We believe in one holy catholic and apostolic Church.

We acknowledge one baptism for the forgiveness of sins.

We look for the resurrection of the dead, and the life of the world to come. Amen.


THE PRAYERS OF THE PEOPLE

(The Leader and People pray responsively)


Beloved people of God, please join your hearts and minds in prayer, responding “We pray to you O God.”


For the Episcopal Church on Staten Island, that it may do the work it is called to do: to restore all people to unity with God and each other in Christ,

We pray to you O God.


For this country, our state, our city, and its leaders, especially Joseph, Katherine, Eric, and Vito, that their decisions be grounded in justice, peace, and understanding of your love,

We pray to you O God.


For the ways of war and exploitation to be set aside in favor of the ways of your kingdom, that oppression will cease, ruins be restored, and scarcity be replaced by your abundant provision,

We pray to you O God.


For the many ministries of The Episcopal Church on Staten Island, and the ways we serve and are served by the people in our communities, especially as we feed the hungry, welcome newcomers, provide safe spaces for children and youth to learn and grow, support the flourishing of the arts, and maintain space

where people experience your holy presence,

We pray to you O God.


For the ways in which the people of Staten Island are divided and the issues that divide them, that our faith communities may be a place where open and honest conversations can happen, compassion and love be our foundation, and our hearts may be continually shaped to be more like yours,

We pray to you O God.


For the departed, especially those whose lives are models for our own, and those who we loved and were loved by, that their souls rest in peace and we one day join them in your eternal kingdom,

We pray to you O God.


For the thanksgivings, petitions, intercessions we offer now, either out loud or silently in our hearts...

Pause for prayers to be offered aloud or silently

For these and the prayers we cannot find words for,

We pray to you O God.


The Celebrant offers a concluding collect


THE CONFESSION


Let us confess our sins against God and our neighbor.


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.


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

The peace of the Lord be always with you. And also with you.

Let us offer one another a sign of peace.

THE GREAT THANKSGIVING - B


The Lord be with you.

And also with you.

Lift up your hearts.

We lift them to the Lord.

Let us give thanks to the Lord our God.

It is right to give him thanks and praise.


It is right, and a good and joyful thing, always and everywhere to give thanks to

you, Father Almighty, Creator of heaven and earth.


Therefore we praise you, joining our voices with Angels and Archangels and with

all the company of heaven, who forever sing this hymn to proclaim the glory of

your Name:

Holy, holy, holy, Lord

God of power and might.

Heaven and Earth are full of your glory.

Hosanna in the highest. Hosanna in the highest

Blessed is He who come in the name of the Lord

Hosanna in the highest. Hosanna in the highest.


We give thanks to you, O God, for the goodness and love which you have

made known to us in creation; in the calling of Israel to be your people; in your

Word spoken through the prophets; and above all in the Word made flesh,

Jesus, your Son. For in these last days you sent him to be incarnate from the

Virgin Mary, to be the Savior and Redeemer of the world. In him, you have

delivered us from evil, and made us worthy to stand before you. In him, you

have brought us out of error into truth, out of sin into righteousness, out of death

into life.


On the night before he died for us, our Lord Jesus Christ 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.”

Therefore, according to his command, O Father,


Celebrant and People

We remember his death,

We proclaim his resurrection,

We await his coming in glory;


The Celebrant continues:


And we offer our sacrifice of praise and thanksgiving to you, O Lord of all;

presenting to you, from your creation, this bread and this wine.

We pray you, gracious God, to send your Holy Spirit upon these gifts that they

may be the Sacrament of the Body of Christ and his Blood of the new

Covenant. Unite us to your Son in his sacrifice, that we may be acceptable

through him, being sanctified by the Holy Spirit. In the fullness of time, put all

things in subjection under your Christ, and bring us to that heavenly country

where, with the Virgin Mary, Saint John and all your saints, we may enter the

everlasting heritage of your sons and daughters; through Jesus Christ our Lord,

the firstborn of all creation, the head of the Church, and the author of our

salvation.


By him, and with him, and in him, in the unity of the Holy Spirit all honor and

glory is yours, Almighty Father, now and forever. Amen

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


THE LORD'S PRAYER


THE BREAKING OF THE BREAD

Alleluia. Christ our Passover is sacrificed for us.

Therefore, let us keep the feast. Alleluia.


Agnus Dei (sung by choir) William Byrd

Agnus Dei, qui tollis peccata mundi,

dona nobis pacem.


Lamb of God, who takes away the sins

of the world, have mercy on us.

Lamb of God, who takes away the sins

of the world, have mercy on us.

of the world, grant us peace.
