 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.

 

Our help is in the name of the Lord

ALL: The Maker of heaven and earth.

You gave Your people food of angels,

ALL: And supplied them with bread ready to eat.

Lord Jesus Christ, You gave us the Eucharist as the memorial of your suffering and death. May our worship of this Blessed Sacrament of your Body and Blood Help us to experience the salvation You won for us and the peace of Your kingdom, where You live with the Father, in the unity of the Holy Spirit, One God, for ever and ever. AMEN.

 

Scripture Reading READER #2

A reading from the Gospel of John.

Thomas, called Didymus, one of the Twelve, was not with them when Jesus came. So the other disciples said to him, “We have seen the Lord.” But Thomas said to them, “Unless I see the mark of the nails in his hands and put my finger into the nailmarks and put my hand into his side, I will not believe.” Now a week later his disciples were again inside and Thomas was with them. Jesus came, although the doors were locked, and stood in their midst and said, “Peace be with you.” Then he said to Thomas, “Put your finger here and see my hands, and bring your hand and put it into my side, and do not be unbelieving, but believe.” Thomas answered and said to him, “My Lord and my God!” Jesus said to him, “Have you come to believe because you have seen me? Blessed are those who have not seen and have believed.”

The Gospel of the Lord.

ALL: Praise to You, Lord Jesus Christ.

 

Reflection

Silent Prayer

Song: Choices

Verse 1: Everyday I face a million

Different ways I gotta trust

But there’s only one decision

How to live how to love

Jesus Because

 

Chorus: You are God

You’re the God of my choices

Speak to me

I will run to Your voice

Here I am in the noise

Won’t you lead me

In my choices

My choices

 

Verse 2: I believe that faith is nothing

If it isn’t everything

Every heartbeat every moment

Whatever the day brings

The song I will sing

 

Bridge: My choice is

You Jesus

I’m chasing after You Jesus

Let it be that I am seeking You first

In the best and the worst I go through

CCLI Song # 7149178 Ian Eskelin | JJ Weeks | Tony Wood

 

Song: Build My Life

Verse 1: Worthy of ev'ry song we could ever sing

Worthy of all the praise we could ever bring

Worthy of ev'ry breath we could ever breathe

We live for You

 

Verse 2: Jesus the name above ev'ry other name

Jesus the only one who could ever save

Worthy of ev'ry breath we could ever breathe

We live for You We live for You

 

Chorus: Holy there is no one like You

There is none beside You

Open up my eyes in wonder and show me who You are

And fill me with Your heart

And lead me in Your love to those around me

 

Bridge: I will build my life upon Your love

It is a firm foundation

I will put my trust in You alone

And I will not be shaken

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.

Reader #4

You believe in me, Thomas, because you have seen me, says the Lord; blessed are those who have not seen, but still believe!

 

Please kneel or bow.

 

Loving Jesus, Redeemer of the world, We are Yours, and Yours we wish to be. May our daily choices reflect our desire to be completely yours. May we continue to follow you, to build our lives and our communities so that we may all enter into Your Heavenly Kingdom. To bind ourselves to You even more closely We kneel and bow before You and offer ourselves to You. 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.
