Processional Hymn

In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the + Holy Spirit.


The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ and the love of God and the fellowship of the Holy Spirit be with you all.

And with your spirit.


My brothers and sisters, to prepare ourselves to celebrate the sacred mysteries, let us call to mind our sins:

I confess to almighty God, and to you, my brothers and sisters, that I have sinned through my own fault in my thoughts and in my words, in what l have done, and in what l have failed to do. And I ask blessed Mary, ever virgin, all the angels and saints, and you, my brothers and sisters, to pray for me to the Lord our God.

May almighty God have mercy on us, forgive us our sins, and bring us to everlasting life. Amen.


Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace to people of good will. We praise you, we bless you, we adore you, we glorify you, we give you thanks for your great glory, Lord God, heavenly King, O God, almighty Father. Lord Jesus Christ, Only Begotten Son, Lord God, Lamb of God, Son of the Father, you take away the sins of the world, have mercy on us; you take away the sins of the world, receive our prayer; you are seated at the right hand of the Father, have mercy on us. For you alone are the Holy One, you alone are the Lord, you alone are the Most High, Jesus Christ, with the Holy Spirit, in the glory of God the Father. Amen.


Almighty ever-living God, who in the abundance of your kindness surpass the merits and the desires of those who entreat you, pour out your mercy upon us to pardon what conscience dreads and to give what prayer does not dare to ask. Through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son, who lives and reigns with you in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.


READING (Dt 6:1-9)

A reading from the book of Deuteronomy

In those days, Moses said: «These then are the commandments, the statutes and decrees which the Lord, your God, has ordered that you be taught to observe in the land into which you are crossing for conquest, so that you and your son and your grandson may fear the Lord, your God, and keep, throughout the days of your lives, all his statutes and commandments which I enjoin on you, and thus have long life. Hear then, Israel, and be careful to observe them, that you may grow and prosper the more, in keeping with the promise of the Lord, the God of your fathers, to give you a land flowing with milk and honey. Hear, O Israel! The Lord is our God, the Lord alone! Therefore, you shall love the Lord, your God, with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your strength. Take to heart these words which I enjoin on you today. Drill them into your children. Speak of them at home and abroad, whether you are busy or at rest. Bind them at your wrist as a sign and let them be as a pendant on your forehead. Write them on the doorposts of your houses and on your gates.»

The word of God

Thanks be to God.


Happy those who walk by the teaching of the Lord.

Happy those whose way is blameless, | who walk by the teaching of the Lord. | Happy those who observe God’s decrees, | who seek the Lord with all their heart. R.

They do no wrong; | they walk in God’s ways. | You have given them the command | to keep your precepts with care. | May my ways be firm | in the observance of your laws!. R.

Then I will not be ashamed | to ponder all your commands. | I will praise you with sincere heart |

as I study your just edicts. | I will keep your laws; | do not leave me all alone. R.

EPISTLE (Rom 13: 8-14a)

A reading from the letter of Saint Paul to the Romans

Brothers: Own nothing to anyone, except to love one another; for the one who loves another has fulfilled the law. The commandments, «You shall not commit adultery; you shall not kill; you shall not steal; you shall not covet,» and whatever other commandment there may be, are summed up in this saying, (namely) «You shall love your neighbour as yourself.» Love does no evil to the neighbour; hence, love is the fulfilment of the law. And do this because you know the time; it is the hour now for you to awake from sleep. For our salvation is nearer now than when we first believed; the night is advanced, the day is at hand. Let us then throw off the works of darkness (and) put on the armor of light; let us conduct ourselves properly as in the day, not in orgies and drunkenness, not in promiscuity and licentiousness, not in rivalry and jealousy. But put on the Lord Jesus Christ.

The word of God

Thanks be to God.


Alleluia. I give you a new commandment, says the Lord: As I have loved you, so you also should love one another. Alleluia.

GOSPEL (Lk 10:25-37)

A reading from the holy Gospel according to Luke

At that time, there was a scholar of the law who stood up to test the Lord Jesus and said, «Teacher, what must I do to inherit eternal life?» Jesus said to him, «What is written in the law? How do you read it?» He said in reply, «You shall love the Lord, your God, with all your heart, with all your being, with all your strength, and with all your mind, and your neighbour as yourself.» He replied to him, «You have answered correctly; do this and you will live.» But because he wished to justify himself, he said to Jesus, «And who is my neighbour?» Jesus replied, «A man fell victim to robbers as he went down from Jerusalem to Jericho. They stripped and beat him and went off leaving him half-dead. A priest happened to be going down that road, but when he saw him, he passed by on the opposite side. Likewise a Levite came to the place, and when he saw him, he passed by on the opposite side. But a Samaritan traveller who came upon him was moved with compassion at the sight. He approached the victim, poured oil and wine over his wounds and bandaged them. Then he lifted him up on his own animal, took him to an inn and cared for him. The next day he took out two silver coins and gave them to the innkeeper with the instruction, ‘Take care of him. If you spend more than what I have given you, I shall repay you on my way back.’ Which of these three, in your opinion, was neighbour to the robbers’ victim?» He answered, «The one who treated him with mercy.» Jesus said to him, «Go and do likewise.»

The Gospel of the Lord.

Praise to you, Lord Jesus Christ.

(the HOMILY follows)


Reader: Lord hear us.

Hail Mary, Full of Grace, the Lord is with thee. Blessed art thou among women, and blessed is the fruit of thy womb, Jesus. Holy Mary, Mother of God, pray for us sinners now and at the hour of death. Amen

Offertory Song


My brothers, called to take part in the same bread and the same chalice, let us confess our faith in communion with the whole catholic Church.



I believe in one God, the Father almighty, maker of heaven and earth, of all things visible and invisible. I believe in one Lord Jesus Christ, the Only Begotten Son of God, born of the Father before all ages. God from God, Light from Light, true God from true God, begotten, not made, consubstantial with the Father; through him all things were made. For us men and for our salvation he came down from heaven, and by the Holy Spirit was incarnate of the Virgin Mary, and became man. For our sake he was crucified under Pontius Pilate, he suffered death and was buried, and rose again on the third day 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. I believe in the Holy Spirit, the Lord, the giver of life, who proceeds from the Father and the Son, who with the Father and the Son is adored and glorified, who has spoken through the prophets. I believe in one, holy, catholic and apostolic Church. I confess one Baptism for the forgiveness of sins and I look forward to the resurrection of the dead and the life of the world to come. Amen!


Accept, O Lord, we pray, the sacrifices instituted by your commands and, through the sacred mysteries, which we celebrate with dutiful service, graciously complete the sanctifying work by which you are pleased to redeem us. Through Christ our Lord. Amen.


The Lord be with you.

And with your spirit.

Lift up your hearts.

We lift them up to the Lord.

Let us give thanks to the Lord our God.

It is right and just.


For this benevolent gift, united with the Angels and the Saints, we raise our song to you, as without end we acclaim:

Holy, holy, holy Lord. God of power and might. Heaven and earth are full of your glory. Hosanna in the highest. Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord. Hosanna in the highest

(remain standing for the CONSECRATION)


Let us proclaim the mystery of faith.

Christ has died, Christ has risen, Christ will come again.


Through him, with him, in him, in the unity of the Holy Spirit, all glory and honour is yours, almighty Father, for ever and ever.


(The priest takes the host and breaks it over the chalice. He places a small piece of the host in the chalice. Meanwhile the following verse is read.)

O Lord, how majestic is your name throughout the earth!


Let us pray with confidence to the Father in the words our Saviour gave us:

Our Father, who art in heaven, hallowed be thy name; Thy kingdom come; Thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread; and forgive us our trespasses as we forgive those who trespass against us; and lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil.

Deliver us Lord, we pray, from every evil, graciously grant peace in our days, that by the help of your mercy, we may be always free from sin and safe from all distress, as we await the blessed hope and the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ.

For the kingdom, the power, and the glory are yours, now and for ever.

Lord Jesus Christ, you said to your apostles: “I leave you peace, my peace I give you”, look not on our sins, but on the faith of your Church, and grant us the peace and unity of your kingdom where you live for ever and ever.


The Peace of the Lord be with you always.

And with your spirit.

Behold the Lamb of God, behold him who takes away the sins of the world. Blessed are those called to the Supper of the Lamb.

Lord, I am not worthy that you should enter under my roof, but only say the word and my soul shall be healed.


Communion Songs


Grant us, almighty God, that we may be refreshed and nourished by the Sacrament which we have received, so as to be transformed into what we consume. Through Christ our Lord. Amen.


The Lord be with you.

And with your spirit.

Kyrie, eleison.

Kyrie, eleison.

Kyrie, eleison.

May almighty God bless you, the Father, and the Son, and the + Holy Spirit. Amen.

Let us go in peace.

In the name of Christ.
