The Lord be with you.

And also with you.

Let us pray.

Almighty God, you have knit together your elect in one communion and fellowship in the mystical body of your Son Christ our Lord: Give us grace so to follow your blessed saints in all virtuous and godly living, that we may come to those ineffable joys that you have prepared for those who truly love you; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who with you and the Holy Spirit lives and reigns, one God, in glory everlasting.


The Liturgy of the Word

The First Lesson: Wisdom 3: 1-9

The souls of the righteous are in the hand of God, and no torment will ever touch them. In the eyes of the foolish, they seemed to have died, and their departure was thought to be a disaster, and their going from us to be their destruction, but they are at peace. For though in the sight of others they were punished, their hope is full of immortality. Having been disciplined a little, they will receive great good, because God tested them and found them worthy of himself; like gold in the furnace he tried them, and like a sacrificial burnt offering he accepted them. In the time of their visitation they will shine forth, and will run like sparks through the stubble. They will govern nations and rule over peoples, and the Lord will reign over them forever. Those who trust in him will understand truth, and the faithful will abide with him in love, because grace and mercy are upon his holy ones, and he watches over his elect.

The Word of the Lord.

Thanks be to God.

The Psalm: Domini est terra, Psalm 24

1 The earth is the Lord's and all that is /in it, * the world and all who dwell there-/in.

2 For it is he who founded it upon the /seas * and made it firm upon the rivers of the /deep.

3 "Who can ascend the hill of the /Lord? " * and who can stand in his holy /place?"

4 "Those who have clean hands and a pure /heart, *

who have not pledged themselves to falsehood, nor sworn by what is a /fraud.

5 They shall receive a blessing from the /Lord *

and a just reward from the God of their sal-/vation."
