Scripture

  • First Reading

    Thus says the LORD:
    "You shall not molest or oppress an alien,
    for you were once aliens yourselves in the land of Egypt. 
    You shall not wrong any widow or orphan. 
    If ever you wrong them and they cry out to me,
    I will surely hear their cry. 
    My wrath will flare up, and I will kill you with the sword;
    then your own wives will be widows, and your children orphans.

    "If you lend money to one of your poor neighbors among my people,
    you shall not act like an extortioner toward him
    by demanding interest from him. 
    If you take your neighbor's cloak as a pledge,
    you shall return it to him before sunset;
    for this cloak of his is the only covering he has for his body. 
    What else has he to sleep in?
    If he cries out to me, I will hear him; for I am compassionate."

    EX 22:20-26

  • Second Reading

    Brothers and sisters:
    You know what sort of people we were among you for your sake. 
    And you became imitators of us and of the Lord,
    receiving the word in great affliction, with joy from the Holy Spirit,
    so that you became a model for all the believers
    in Macedonia and in Achaia.
    For from you the word of the Lord has sounded forth
    not only in Macedonia and in Achaia,
    but in every place your faith in God has gone forth,
    so that we have no need to say anything. 
    For they themselves openly declare about us
    what sort of reception we had among you,
    and how you turned to God from idols
    to serve the living and true God
    and to await his Son from heaven,
    whom he raised from the dead,
    Jesus, who delivers us from the coming wrath.

    1 THES 1:5C-10

  • Gospel

    When the Pharisees heard that Jesus had silenced the Sadducees,
    they gathered together, and one of them,
    a scholar of the law tested him by asking,
    "Teacher, which commandment in the law is the greatest?" 
    He said to him,
    "You shall love the Lord, your God,
    with all your heart,
    with all your soul,
    and with all your mind.
    This is the greatest and the first commandment.
    The second is like it:
    You shall love your neighbor as yourself. 
    The whole law and the prophets depend on these two commandments."

    MT 22:34-40

Lyrics

  • Age to Age

    Age to Age

    By Janet Vogt

      

    Refrain

    Age to age we will love you.

    Dawning light we will wake with you.

    Into night we will follow you.

    We will love you age to age.

     

    1. As the eagle flies to the heavens above,

    On wings of faith God will bear you up.

     

    2. As the lilies of the field neither toil nor spin,

    What splendor we find in the love God gives.

  • Psalm 18

    I Love You, Lord
    by Matt Maher

     

    Refrain

    I love you, Lord.

    I love you, Lord.

    I love you, Lord;

    You are my strength.

     

    1. My heart, it longs to be with you

    And nothing else will ever do.

    So at your throne is where I’ll be

    ‘cause your flesh and blood consumes me,

    And I am one with you.

     

    2. My stronghold, my refuge,

    Your righteousness will see me through.

    In dark of night and thorn of sin,

    I will stay close to you, my friend,

    And I am one with you.

  • See the Love

    See the Love
    by John Arndt, David Gungor, and David Campbell

       

    1. Everyday, we go to war again,

    We assume we know so much more than them

    Before we hear what they have to say.

    Headline breaks, and we start to hate again,

    Calling them names again,

    We give our peace away.

     

    Pre-Chorus

    I hope they see it,

    ‘Cause I wanna see it,

    I hope we believe it.

     

    Chorus

    I wanna see, I wanna see the love

    All around you,

    All around you.

    I wanna know, I wanna know that love

    Is all around you,

    It’s all around.

     

    2. Day by day, hope fades away again;

    We know that there is pain within

    We cannot medicate.

    Learn to feel, learn to begin again,

    Open our eyes again,

    To see our brother’s pain.

     

    Bridge

    See how it lights you up, It lights you up.

    See how it lights you up, It lights you up.

    See how it lights you up, It lights you up.

  • City of God

    City of God

    By Dan Schutte

        

    1. Awake from your slumber! Arise from your sleep!

    A new day is dawning for all those who weep.

    The people in darkness have seen a great light.

    The Lord of our longing has conquered the night.

     

    Refrain

    Let us build the city of God.

    May our tears be turned into dancing!

    For the Lord, our light and our love,

    Has turned the night into day!

     

    2. We are sons of the morning; we are daughters of day.

    The one who has loved us has brightened our way.

    The Lord of all kindness has called us to be

    A light for his people to set their hearts free.  

     

    Bridge

    God is light; in him there is no darkness.

    Let us walk in his light, his children, one and all.

     

    3. O comfort my people; make gentle your words.

    Proclaim to my city the day of her birth.

Prayer for Spiritual Communion

My Jesus,

I believe you are really here in the Blessed Sacrament.

I love you more than anything in the world,

And I hunger to receive you.

But since I cannot receive Communion at this time,

Feed my soul at least spiritually.

I unite myself to you now,

As I do when I actually receive you in Holy Communion

Amen.
