Psalm 110
The Messiah, King and Priest

Antiphon
The Lord will send his mighty sceptre from Sion, and he will rule for ever, alleluia.

The Lord has said to my lord:*
“Sit at my right hand
while I make your enemies your footstool.”

From Zion the Lord will give you a sceptre,*
and you will rule in the midst of your foes.
Royal power is yours in the day of your strength,*
among the sacred splendours.
Before the dawn, I begot you from the womb.

The Lord has sworn, and he will not repent:*
“You are a priest for ever,
a priest of the priesthood of Melchisedech.”
The Lord is at your right hand,*
and on the day of his anger he will shatter kings.

He will drink from the stream as he goes*
he will hold his head high.

to the Son,
and to the Holy Spirit.
As it was in the beginning,
is now, and will be forever.

Psalm 114
Israel set free from Egypt

Antiphon
The earth trembled before the Lord, alleluia.

When Israel came out of Egypt,*
Jacob’s people from a land of strangers,
Judah became his sanctuary*
and Israel his domain.

The sea saw it, and fled;*
the Jordan flowed backwards at the sight;
the mountains leapt like rams;*
the hills, like yearling sheep.

Sea, what was it, what made you flee?*
And you, Jordan, why did you flow uphill?
Mountains, why did you leap like rams?*
Hills, like yearling sheep?

Tremble, Earth, at the presence of the Lord,*
the presence of the Lord of Jacob,
who has turned the rock into a pool of water*
and made a fountain out of the flint.

Glory to the Father,
to the Son,
and to the Holy Spirit.
As it was in the beginning,
is now, and will be forever.
Alleluia
Amen.

Gospel Canticle

Antiphon
Master, we have worked hard all night long and have caught nothing; but if you say so, we will let down the nets.

My soul magnifies the greatness of the Lord,*
my spirit bursts rejoicing in God my savior.
For He knew the humility of His servant.*
From today all generations will call me blessed.

The Almighty has done great things for me,*
and holy is His name!

He has mercy for those who fear Him,*
from generation to generation.
He has shown the strength of His arm,*
and scattered the proud whose hearts betray them.

He has torn the mighty from their thrones,*
and lifted up the lowly.
He has filled the hungry with good things,*
and sent the rich away empty.

He has given help to His servant Israel,*
and remembered His promise of mercy.
The promise made to our ancestors,*
to Abraham and His children forever.

Glory to the Father,
to the Son,
and to the Holy Spirit.
As it was in the beginning,
is now, and will be forever.
Alleluia
Amen.

Master, we have worked hard all night long and have caught nothing; but if you say so, we will let down the nets.

May your Church be a light to the nations, the sign and source of your power to unite all people:
may she lead mankind to the mystery of your love.
– Your kingdom come!

Guide all the leaders of your Church:
grant them the gifts of unity, of love, and of peace.
– Your kingdom come!

Lord, give peace to our troubled world;
and give to your children security of mind and rest from anxiety.
– Your kingdom come!

Help us to bring your compassion to the poor, the sick, the lonely, the unloved;
lead us to find you in the coming week.
– Your kingdom come!

Awaken the dead to a glorious resurrection:
may we be united with them at the end of time.
– Your kingdom come!

Our Father, who is in heaven,
hallowed is your Name.
Your kingdom come,
your will be done,
on earth as it is in heaven.

Give us today our daily bread.
Forgiving us our sins,

Lead us not into temptation,
but deliver us from evil;
for the kingdom, the power,
and the glory are yours without end.
Amen
