Thus saith the Lord God: O children of Sion, rejoice and be joyful in the Lord your God: because He hath given you a teacher of justice, and He will make the early and the latter rain to come down to you, as in the beginning. And the floors shall be filled with wheat, and the presses shall overflow with wine and oil.

In our labor rest most sweet, Pleasant coolness in the heat, Solace in the midst of woe.

 

O most blessed Light divine, Shine within the hearts of Thine, And our inmost being fill.

 

Where Thou art not, man has nought, Nothing good in deed or thought, Nothing free from taint of ill.

 

Heal our wounds, our strength renew, On our dryness pour Thy dew, Wash the stains of guilt away.

 

Bend the stubborn heart and will, Melt the frozen, warm the chill, Guide the steps that go astray.

 

On Thy faithful who adore, And confess Thee evermore, In Thy sevenfold gifts descend.

 

Give them virtues sure reward, Give them Thy salvation Lord, Give them joys that never end.

 

Amen, alleluia.

 

Gospel – Luke 5: 17-26

 

At that time, it came to pass on a certain day that Jesus sat teaching. And there were Pharisees and doctors of the Law sitting by, that were come out of every town of Galilee, and Judea, and Jerusalem: and the power of the Lord was to heal them. And behold men brought in a bed a man who had the palsy: and they sought means to bring him in, and to lay him before Him. And when they could not find by what way they might bring him in because of the multitude, they went up upon the roof, and let him down through the tiles with his bed into the midst before Jesus. Whose faith when He saw, He said: Man, thy sins are forgiven thee.

 

And the scribes and Pharisees began to think, saying: Who is this who speaketh blasphemies? Who can forgive sins, but God alone? And when Jesus knew their thoughts, answering He said to them: What is it you think in your hearts? Which is easier to say: Thy sins are forgiven thee; or to say, Arise and walk? But that you may know that the Son of man hath power on earth to forgive sins (He saith to the sick of the palsy): I say to thee, arise, take up thy bed, and go into thy house. And immediately rising up before them, he took up the bed on which he lay, and he went away to his own house, glorifying God.

 

And all were astonished; and they glorified God. And they were filled with fear, saying: We have seen wonderful things today.

 

Offertory

 

Praise the Lord, O my soul: in my life I will praise the Lord: I will sing to my God as long as I shall be, alleluia.

 

Secret

 

May the Sacrifice which we offer up in Thy sight, O Lord, be consumed by that divine fire which, through the Holy Ghost, enkindled the hearts of the disciples of Christ Thy Son.  Through the same our Lord… in the unity of the same Holy Ghost.

 

Communion

 

I will not leave you orphans: I will come to you again, alleluia: and your heart shall rejoice, alleluia.

 

Post Communion

 

We have received, O Lord, the gifts of Thy holy mystery, and humbly beseech Thee: that what Thou hast bidden us do in remembrance of Thee may be of avail to us in our weakness: Who livest and reignest.

Introit

 

O God, when Thou didst go forth in the sight of Thy people, making a passage for them, dwelling among them, alleluia, the earth was moved and the heavens dropped, alleluia, alleluia. (Psalm) Let God arise, and let His enemies be scattered: and let them that hate Him flee from before His face.  Glory be to the Father.  O God, when Thou didst go…

 

After Kyrie eleison

 

Oremus – May the Comforter, Who proceedeth from Thee, enlighten our minds, we beseech Thee, O Lord, and guide us, even as Thy Son hath promised, into all truth: Who liveth and reigneth with Thee in the unity of the same Holy Ghost, God, world without end.

 

Lesson – Acts 2:14-21

 

In those days, Peter, standing up with the eleven, lifted up his voice, and spoke to them: Ye men of Judea, and all you that dwell in Jerusalem, be this known to you, and with your ears receive my words. For these are not drunk, as you suppose, seeing it is but the third hour of the day;

 

but this is that which was spoken of by the prophet Joel: And it shall come to pass in the last days (saith the Lord) I will pour out of My Spirit upon all flesh, and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, and your young men shall see visions, and your old men shall dream dreams. And upon My servants, indeed, and upon My handmaids will I pour out in those days of My Spirit, and they shall prophesy. And I will show wonders in the heaven above and signs on the earth beneath: blood, and fire, and vapor of smoke. The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before the great and manifest day of the Lord come.

 

And it shall come to pass, that whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.

 

First Alleluia

 

Alleluia.  By the word of the Lord the heavens were established, and all the power of them by the Spirit of His mouth.

 

Collect

 

Grant, we beseech Thee, almighty and merciful God, that the Holy Ghost may deign to come and dwell in us, making us the temples of His glory.  Through our Lord… in the unity of the same Holy Ghost.

 

Epistle – Acts 5:12-16

 

In those days by the hands of the Apostles were many signs and wonders wrought among the people. And they were all with one accord in Solomon’s porch. But of the rest no man durst join himself unto them; but the people magnified them. And the multitude of men and women who believed in the Lord was more increased, insomuch that they brought forth the sick into the streets, and laid them on beds and couches, that, when Peter came, his shadow at the least might overshadow any of them, and they might be delivered from their infirmities.

 

And there came also together to Jerusalem a multitude out of the neighboring cities, bringing sick persons, and such as were troubled with unclean spirits: who were all healed.

 

Paschal Alleluia

 

Alleluia, alleluia.  Send forth Thy Spirit, and they shall be created, and Thou shalt renew the face of the earth.

 

Alleluia.  Come, O Holy Ghost, fill the hearts of Thy faithful: and kindle in them the fire of Thy love.

In our labor rest most sweet, Pleasant coolness in the heat, Solace in the midst of woe.

 

O most blessed Light divine, Shine within the hearts of Thine, And our inmost being fill.

 

Where Thou art not, man has nought, Nothing good in deed or thought, Nothing free from taint of ill.

 

Heal our wounds, our strength renew, On our dryness pour Thy dew, Wash the stains of guilt away.

 

Bend the stubborn heart and will, Melt the frozen, warm the chill, Guide the steps that go astray.

 

On Thy faithful who adore, And confess Thee evermore, In Thy sevenfold gifts descend.

 

Give them virtues sure reward, Give them Thy salvation Lord, Give them joys that never end.

 

Amen, alleluia.

 

Gospel – John 6:44-52

 

At that time Jesus said to the multitude of the Jews: No man can come to Me, except the Father, who hath sent Me, draw him; and I will raise him up in the last day. It is written in the Prophets: And they shall all be taught of God. Every one that hath heard of the Father, and hath learned, cometh to Me.

 

Not that any man hath seen the Father, but He Who is of God, He hath seen the Father. Amen, amen, I say unto you: He that believeth in Me hath everlasting life. I am the bread of life. Your fathers did eat manna in the desert, and are dead. This is the bread which cometh down from heaven: that if any man eat of it, he may not die.

 

I am the living bread which came down from heaven. If any man eat of this bread, he shall live for ever: and the bread that I will give, is My flesh for the life of the world.

 

Offertory

 

I shall meditate on Thy commandments, which I have loved; and I shall lift up my hands to Thy commandments, which I have loved, alleluia.

In those days, when the Apostles who were in Jerusalem had heard that Samaria had received the word of God, they sent unto them Peter and John, who, when they were come, prayed for them, that they might receive the Holy Ghost:

Gospel – John 10:1-10

 

At that time Jesus said to the Pharisees: Amen, amen I say to you: he that entereth not by the door into the sheepfold, but climbeth up another way, the same is a thief and a robber. But he that entereth in by the door is the shepherd of the sheep. To him the porter openeth, and the sheep hear his voice, and he calleth his own sheep by name, and leadeth them out. And when he hath let out his own sheep, he goeth before them: and the sheep follow him, because they know his voice. But a stranger they follow not, but fly from him, because they know not the voice of strangers.

 

This proverb Jesus spoke to them. But they understood not what He spoke to them. Jesus therefore said to them again: Amen, amen, I say to you, I am the door of the sheep. All others, as many as have come, are thieves and robbers, and the sheep heard them not. I am the door. By Me, if any man enter in, he shall be saved: and he shall go in and go out, and shall find pastures. The thief cometh not but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy. I am come that they may have life and may have it more abundantly.

Collect

 

O God, Who gavest the Holy Ghost to Thine Apostles, grant to Thy people the fruit of their loving petition, that on those to whom Thou hast given faith, Thou mayest also bestow peace.  Through our Lord… in the unity of the same Holy Ghost.

 

Epistle – Acts 10:34,42-48

 

In those days Peter, opening his mouth, said: Men brethren, the Lord commanded us to preach to the people, and to testify that it is He Who was appointed by God to be judge of the living and of the dead. To Him all the prophets give testimony, that by His name all receive remission of sins who believe in Him. While Peter was yet speaking these words, the Holy Ghost fell on all them that heard the word. And the faithful of the circumcision, who came with Peter, were astonished for that the grace of the Holy Ghost was poured out upon the Gentiles also.

 

For they heard them speaking with tongues, and magnifying God. Then Peter answered: Can any man forbid water, that these should not be baptized, who have received the Holy Ghost as well as we? And he commanded them to be baptized in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ.

 

Paschal Alleluia

Heal our wounds, our strength renew, On our dryness pour Thy dew, Wash the stains of guilt away.

On Thy faithful who adore, And confess Thee evermore, In Thy sevenfold gifts descend.

 

Give them virtues sure reward, Give them Thy salvation Lord, Give them joys that never end.

 

Amen, alleluia.

 

Gospel – John 3:16-21

 

At that time Jesus said to Nicodemus: God so loved the world, as to give His only-begotten Son: that whosoever believeth in Him may not perish, but may have life everlasting. For God sent not his Son into the world to judge the world, but that the world may be saved by Him. He that believeth in Him is not judged; but he that doth not believe is already judged: because he believeth not in the name of the only-begotten Son of God. And this is the judgment: Because the light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than the light: for their works were evil. For every one that doth evil hateth the light, and cometh not to the light, that his works may not be reproved; but he that doth truth, cometh to the light, that his works may be made manifest, because they are done in God.

 

Offertory

 

The Lord thundered from heaven, and the Highest gave His voice: and the fountains of waters appeared, alleluia.

Epistle – Acts 2:1-11

 

When the days of the Pentecost were accomplished, they were all together in one place; and suddenly there came a sound from heaven, as of a mighty wind coming, and it filled the whole house where they were sitting. And there appeared to them parted tongues as it were of fire, and it sat upon every one of them; and they were all filled with the Holy Ghost, and they began to speak with divers tongues, according as the Holy Ghost gave them to speak. Now there were dwelling at Jerusalem Jews, devout men, out of every nation under heaven.

 

And when this was noised abroad, the multitude came together, and were confounded in mind, because that every man heard them speak in his own tongue. And they were all amazed, and wondered, saying: Behold, are not all these that speak Galileans? And how have we heard every man our own tongue wherein we were born? Parthians, and Medes, and Elamites, and inhabitants of Mesopotamia, Judea, and Cappadocia, Pontus and Asia, Phrygia and Pamphylia, Egypt and the parts of Libya about Cyrene, and strangers of Rome, Jews also, and Proselytes, Cretes and Arabians: we have heard them speak in our own tongues the wonderful works of God.

Give them virtues sure reward, Give them Thy salvation Lord, Give them joys that never end.

 

Amen, alleluia.

 

Gospel – John 14:23-31

 

At that time Jesus said to His disciples: If any one love Me, he will keep My word, and My Father will love him, and We will come to him and will make Our abode with him: He that loveth Me not, keepeth not My words. And the word which you have heard is not Mine, but the Father’s Who sent Me. These things have I spoken to you, abiding with you.

 

But the Paraclete, the Holy Ghost, Whom the Father will send in My name, He will teach you all things, and bring all things to your mind, whatsoever I shall have said to you. Peace I leave with you, My peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, do I give unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, nor let it be afraid. You have heard that I said to you: I go away, and I come unto you. If you loved Me, you would indeed be glad, because I go to the Father: for the Father is greater than I. And now I have told you before it come to pass that when it shall come to pass you may believe. I will not now speak many things with you. For the prince of this world cometh, and in Me he hath not any thing.

 

But that the world may know that I love the Father, and as the Father hath given Me commandment, so do I.

Confirm, O God, what Thou hast wrought in us; from Thy temple, which is in Jerusalem, kings shall offer presents to Thee, alleluia.

Epistle – Acts 19:1-8

 

In those days, it came to pass, while Apollo was at Corinth, that Paul, having passed through the upper coasts, came to Ephesus and found certain disciples; and he said to them: Have you received the Holy Ghost since ye believed? But they said to him: We have not so much as heard whether there be a Holy Ghost. And he said: In what then were you baptized? Who said: In John’ s baptism. Then Paul said: John baptized the people with the baptism of penance, saying: That they should believe in Him, Who was to come after him, that is to say, in Jesus. Having heard these things, they were baptized in the name of the Lord Jesus.

 

And when Paul had imposed his hands on them, the Holy Ghost came upon them, and they spoke with tongues and prophesied. And all the men were about twelve. And entering into the synagogue, he spoke boldly for the space of three months, disputing, and exhorting concerning the kingdom of God.

I will not leave you orphans: I will come to you. Yet a little while, and the world seeth Me no more. But you see Me: because I live, and you shall live. In that day you shall know that I am in My Father, and you in Me, and I in you.

 

He that hath My commandments and keepeth them, he it is that loveth Me. And he that loveth Me shall be loved of My Father: and I will love him, and will manifest Myself to him.
