 Song - O Salutaris Hostia

O saving Victim, opening wide,

The gate of heaven to man below!

Our foes press on from every side;

Thine aid supply, thy strength bestow.

 

To Thy great name by endless praise,

Immortal Godhead, one in Three;

Oh, grant us endless length of days,

In our true native land with Thee. Amen

O Saving Lamb, Please take my hand

O Love Divine, be all of mine.

O Saving Lamb, please take my hand.

O Love Divine, be all of mine, for all of time.

 

Opening Prayer READER #1

Please stand. Let us begin with the sign on of the Cross.

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

 

O Sacrament Most Holy, O Sacrament Divine,

ALL:  All praise and all thanksgiving be every moment thine.

Blessed be the holy and Immaculate Conception

ALL: Of the Most Blessed Virgin Mary, Mother of God. 

Lord Jesus Christ,

ALL:  Open our mouths that we may bless Thy Holy Name.  Cleanse our hearts from all vain, evil, and wandering thoughts; enlighten our understanding; kindle our affections that we may pray to and praise Thee with attention and devotion; and may worthily be heard before the presence of Thy Divine Majesty.  Through Christ our Lord.  AMEN.

 

Scripture Reading READER #2

A reading from the Gospel of Matthew.  (Mt 18:1-5, 10)

The disciples approached Jesus and said, “Who is the greatest in the Kingdom of heaven?” He called a child over, placed it in their midst, and said, “Amen, I say to you, unless you turn and become like children,
you will not enter the Kingdom of heaven. Whoever humbles himself like this child is the greatest in the Kingdom of heaven. And whoever receives one child such as this in my name receives me. 
“See that you do not despise one of these little ones, for I say to you that their angels in heaven always look upon the face of my heavenly Father.”

The Gospel of the Lord.

ALL: Praise to You, Lord Jesus Christ.

 

Reflection

Silent Prayer

Song: Angels

Verse 1: The holiest place there could ever be
All you can do is bow
Before the One who made heav'n and earth
Before the Almighty God

Pre-chorus: For Him alone

Chorus: Sing with the angels
Sing with the angels
Singing the Name of the Lord
Singing the Name of the Lord

Verse 2: For ev'ry soul He gave it all
Given for all of mankind
Eternal life is His alone
Given to all who believe

Pre-chorus: In Him alone
In Him alone

Bridge: Jesus Jesus
Jesus Jesus

CCLI Song # 3979886 | Marty Sampson

Song: Peace

Verse 1:When my mind is like a battlefield
And my heart is overcome by fear
And hope seems like a ship that's lost at sea

Verse 2: My enemies on every side

And I'm tempted to run and hide

Your gentle whisper reaches out to me

 

Chorus: (You give me) Peace
(That) Holds me when I'm broken
Sweet peace
That passes understanding
When the whole wide world is crashing down
I fall to my knees
And breathe in (Your peace)

 

Verse 3: Fiery arrows whistling
The terror of the night sets in
But I can feel Your angels all around

Verse 4: I am resting underneath
The shelter of Your mighty wings
Your promises are where my hope is found

 

Bridge: I remember who You are
You're the God who's never far
So I will not be afraid
God You always keep me safe in Your arms

CCLI Song # 7149280 | Ed Cash

 

 

Silent Reflection

 

Prayer for Vocations – Reader #3

God of Life, You speak to us and nourish us through the life of our Church community. In the name of Jesus, we ask you to send your Spirit so that all men and women among us will respond to your call to service and leadership in our Church as priests, deacons, brothers, and sisters. May those who open their hearts and minds to this call be encouraged and strengthened through Our enthusiasm and support. We make this prayer through Jesus your Son. Amen.

 

Song: The Divine Praises

 

Reader #4

Heavenly Father,
Your infinite love for us has chosen a blessed angel in heaven and appointed him our guide during this earthly pilgrimage. Accept our thanks for so great a blessing. Grant that we may experience the assistance
of our holy protector in all our necessities. And you, holy, loving angel and guide, watch over us with all the tenderness of your angelic heart. Keep us always on the way that leads to heaven, and cease not to pray for us until we have attained our final destiny, eternal salvation. Then we shall love You for all eternity.
We shall praise and glorify You unceasingly for all the good You have done for us while here on earth. Especially be a faithful and watchful protector of our children. Take our place, and supply what may be wanting to us through human frailty, short-sightedness, or sinful neglect. Lighten, O you perfect servants of God, our heavy task. Guide our children, that they may become like unto Jesus, may imitate Him faithfully, and persevere till they attain eternal life.

Amen

                                                                                     

May the heart of Jesus in the most Blessed Sacrament

Be praised, adored, and loved, with grateful affection, at every moment, in all the tabernacles of the world, even to the end of time.  AMEN.
