Introduction

Sample Introductory Rite

Priest — The Lord is not an angry God whose justice must be

appeased. He is a God who is close to his people. He is

present amid life’s storms, as Jesus shows in rescuing

Peter. He reveals himself also in unobtrusive and gentle

moments,as the prophet Elijah experiences on Mount Horeb.

May we become a people ever convinced of God’s presence in
both the ordinary and the extraordinary moments of our life.

 

Penitential Act

Priest — Brethren (brothers and sisters), let us acknowledge our

sins, and so prepare ourselves to celebrate the sacred mysteries.

(Pause)


Penitential Act

All — I confess to almighty God, and to you, my brothers

and sisters, that I have greatly sinned, in my thoughts and in

my words, in what I have done, and in what I have failed to do,

(strike breast) through my fault, through my fault, through my

most grievous fault; therefore 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.


Priest — May almighty God have mercy on us, forgive us our

sins, and bring us to everlasting life.

All — Amen.

 

Choir will sing the Kyrie song 

But in the absence of a choir Kyrie will be
recited

 

P — Lord, have mercy.

All — Christ, have mercy.

Gloria


All — 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.


Collect

Priest — Let us pray. (Pause)

Almighty and ever-living God, whom, taught by the Holy

Spirit, we dare to call our Father, bring, we pray, to perfection in

our hearts the spirit of adoption as your sons and daughters,

that we may merit to enter into the inheritance which you have

promised. 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.

All — Amen.

 

Commentator: Let us all be seated and listen to the Liturgy of the Word


LITURGY OF THE WORD

First Reading

Sample 1st Reading

[1 Kgs 19:9a, 11–13a] (Sit)

 

Commentator: The prophet Elijah experiences

God through a tiny whispering sound. God is present
in the ordinary and extraordinary events of life.

 

A reading from the first Book of Kings

AT THE MOUNTAIN of God, Horeb, Elijah came to a cave

where he took shelter. Then the Lord said to him, “Go outside

and stand on the mountain before the Lord; the Lord

will be passing by.” A strong and heavy wind was rending

the mountains and crushing rocks before the Lord—but

the Lord was not in the wind. After the wind there was an

earthquake—but the Lord was not in the earthquake. After the

earthquake there was fire—but the Lord was not in the fire.

After the fire there was a tiny whispering sound.

When he heard this, Elijah hid his face in his cloak and

went and stood at the entrance of the cave.

READER— The word of the Lord.

All — Thanks be to God.

 

Responsorial Psalm (Ps85)

Sample Responsorial Psalm

 

Response — Lord, let us see your kindness, and grant us
                    your salvation.


1. I will hear what God proclaims; the Lord—for
he proclaims peace. Near indeed is his salvation to those who

fear him, glory dwelling in our land. (R)


2. Kindness and truth shall meet; justice and peace shall

kiss. Truth shall spring out of the earth, and justice shall look

down from heaven. (R)


3. The Lord himself will give his benefits; our land shall yield

its increase. Justice shall walk before him, and prepare the

way of his steps. (R)

 

 

Second Reading

Sample 2nd Reading

(Rom 9:1–5)

 

Commentator: The apostle Paul shares the pain he
feels for his people who fail to accept Jesus as the Messiah. And

yet in his own good time, God will bring the people of Israel to

himself.

 

A reading from the Letter of Paul to the Romans

BROTHERS AND SISTERS:

I speak the truth in Christ, I do not lie; my conscience joins

with the Holy Spirit in bearing me witness that I have great

sorrow and constant anguish in my heart.

For I could wish that I myself were accursed and cut off from

Christ for the sake of my own people, my kindred according

to the flesh. They are Israelites; theirs the adoption, the glory,

the covenants, the giving of the law, the worship, and the

promises; theirs the patriarchs, and from them, according to

the flesh, is the Christ, who is over all, God blessed forever.

Amen.

READER—The word of the Lord.

All — Thanks be to God.

 

Commentator: Please all stand

In the absence of Choir Alleluia will be recited


Alleluia

All — Alleluia, alleluia. I wait for the Lord; my soul

waits for his word. Alleluia, alleluia.

Gospel

Sample Sunday Gospel

(Mt 14:22–33)

 

Priest — A reading from the holy Gospel according to Matthew.

 

All — Glory to you, O Lord. AFTER HE HAD FED

the people, Jesus made the disciples get into a boat and

precede him to the other side, while he dismissed the crowds.

After doing so, he went up on the mountain by himself to pray.

When it was evening he was there alone. Meanwhile

the boat, already a few miles of fshore, was being tossed

about by the waves, for the wind was against it.

During the fourth watch of the night, he came toward them

walking on the sea. When the disciples saw him walking on

the sea they were terrified. “It is a ghost,” they said, and they

cried out in fear. At once Jesus spoke to them,

“Take courage, it is I; do not be afraid.” Peter said to him in reply,

“Lord, if it is you, command me to come to you on the water.”

He said, “Come.”

 

Peter got out of the boat and began to walk on the water

toward Jesus. But when he saw how strong the wind was

he became frightened, and, beginning to sink, he cried out,

“Lord, save me!” Immediately Jesus stretched

out his hand and caught Peter, and said to him, “O you of little

faith, why did you doubt?” After they got into the boat, the wind

died down. Those who were in the boat did him homage, saying, “Truly, you are the Son of God.”

Priest— The Gospel of the Lord.

 

All — Praise to you, Lord Jesus Christ.

 

Commentator: Please all be seated

 

Homily 

 

Commentator: Please all be stand

 

Profession of Faith 

All — 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,

(At the words that follow, up to and including and became man, all bow)

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 was 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.

Church sailing amid danger, violence, unbelief, and egoism.

who listen to him of your loving presence amid tragedies and

trials. Help us to find comfort and consolation in your promise

nature, and the fishermen and wayfarers plying the seas. We

pray: (R)

you in good times. We pray: (R)

that in your mercy you sent us the Redeemer, to live like

us in all things but sin, so that you might love in us what you

loved in your Son, by whose obedience we have been
