The Lord came to my support. He set me free in the open, and rescued me, because He loves me.

Collect
Let us pray.
Grant, O Lord, that we may always fear and love Your holy Name, for You never fail to guide those whom You firmly establish in Your love.

R.Amen.

Lesson
Lesson from the first letter of St John the Apostle
1 John 3:13-18.
Beloved: Do not be surprised if the world hates you. We know that we have passed from death to life, because we love the brethren. He who does not love abides in death. Everyone who hates his brother is a murderer. And you know that no murderer has eternal life abiding in him. In this we have come to know His love, that He laid down His life for us; and we likewise ought to lay down our life for the brethren. He who has the goods of this world and sees his brother in need and closes his heart to him, how does the love of God abide in him? My dear children, let us not love in word, neither with the tongue, but in deed and in truth.
R.Thanks be to God.

Gradual
Ps. 119:1-2.
In my distress I called to the Lord, and He answered me.
V.O Lord, deliver me from lying lip, from treacherous tongue. Alleluia, alleluia.
Ps 7:2
V.O Lord my God, in You I take refuge; save me from all my pursuers and rescue me. Alleluia.

Gospel
Continuation ✠of the Holy Gospel according to Luke
R.Glory be to Thee, O Lord.
Luke 14:16-24.
At that time, Jesus spoke to the Pharisees this parable: A certain man gave a great supper, and he invited many. And he sent his servant at supper time to tell those invited to come, for everything is now ready. And they all with one accord began to excuse themselves. The first said to him, ‘I have bought a farm, and I must go out and see it; I pray you hold me excused.’ And another said, ‘I have bought five yoke of oxen, and I am on my way to try them; I pray you hold me excused.’ And another said, ‘I have married a wife, and therefore I cannot come.’ And the servant returned, and reported these things to his master. Then the master of the house was angry and said to his servant, ‘Go out quickly into the streets and lanes of the city, and bring in here the poor, and the crippled, and the blind, and the lame.’ And the servant said, ‘Sir, your order has been carried out, and still there is room.’ Then the master said to the servant, ‘Go out into the highways and hedges, and make them come in, so that my house may be filled. For I tell you that none of those who were invited shall taste of my supper.’
R.Praise be to Thee, O Christ.
S.By the words of the Gospel may our sins be blotted out.

Offertorium
Ps. 6:5.
Return, O Lord, save my life; rescue me because of Your kindness.

Secreta
May the sacrifice we are about to offer unto Your holy Name, O Lord, make us pure, and day by day help us to live a more heavenly life.
Through Jesus Christ, thy Son our Lord, Who liveth and reigneth with thee, in the unity of the Holy Ghost, God, world without end.
R.Amen.

Prefatio
Holy Trinity
It is truly meet and just, right and for our salvation, that we should at all times, and in all places, give thanks unto Thee, O holy Lord, Father almighty, everlasting God; Who, together with Thine only-begotten Son, and the Holy Ghost, art one God, one Lord: not in the oneness of a single Person, but in the Trinity of one substance. For what we believe by Thy revelation of Thy glory, the same do we believe of Thy Son, the same of the Holy Ghost, without difference or separation. So that in confessing the true and everlasting Godhead, distinction in persons, unity in essence, and equality in majesty may be adored. Which the Angels and Archangels, the Cherubim also and Seraphim do praise: who cease not daily to cry out, with one voice saying:

Communio
Ps. 12:6.
I will sing of the Lord, He has been good to me; and I will sing to the Name of the Lord the Most High.

Postcommunio
Let us pray.
We beseech You, O Lord, that having received Your gifts, each partaking of this sacrament may increase within us its saving effects.
Through Jesus Christ, thy Son our Lord, Who liveth and reigneth with thee, in the unity of the Holy Ghost, God, world without end.
R.Amen.
