You have redeemed us, O Lord, by your blood,
from every tribe and tongue, from every nation and people. Cf Rv 5:9

The Gloria is said.

Father, who through the blood of Jesus your Son,
the Lamb sacrificed on the cross,
redeemed us, sanctified us, and made us your people;
grant that all may accept this gift of your love,
celebrate it joyfully in the Spirit,
and drink of it in the Eucharistic chalice,
the sign of your covenant and blessing.
Through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son,
who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit,
one God, for ever and ever.

This is the blood of the covenant which the Lord has made with you.

A reading from the book of Exodus
24: 3-8

When Moses came to the people
and related all the words and ordinances of the LORD,
they all answered with one voice,
”We will do everything that the LORD has told us.”
Moses then wrote down all the words of the LORD and,
rising early the next day,
he erected at the foot of the mountain an altar
and twelve pillars for the twelve tribes of Israel.
Then, having sent certain young men of the Israelites
to offer holocausts and sacrifice young bulls
as peace offerings to the LORD,
Moses took half of the blood and put it in large bowls;
the other half he splashed on the altar.
Taking the book of the covenant, he read it aloud to the people,
who answered, “All that the LORD has said, we will heed and do.”
Then he took the blood and sprinkled it on the people, saying,
“This is the blood of the covenant
that the LORD has made with you
in accordance with all these words of his.”

The word of the Lord.

Ps.16: 1b-3, 4-6, 6-8, 9-10, 11.

R. Your blood, O Lord, is the source of life.
Keep me, O God, for in you I take refuge.
I say to the LORD, “My LORD are you, you are my only good.”
Worthless are all the false gods of the land.
Accursed are all who delight in them. R.

They multiply their sorrows who court other gods.
Blood libations to them I will not pour out,
nor will I take their names upon my lips.
Lord, my allotted portion and my cup,
you have made my destiny secure. R.

Pleasant places were measured out for me;
fair to me indeed is my inheritance.
I bless the Lord who counsels me;
even at night my heart exhorts me.
I keep the Lord always before me;
with the Lord at my right, I shall never be shaken. R.

Therefore my heart is glad and my soul rejoices,
my body, too, dwells secure,
For you will not abandon me to Sheol,
nor let your faithful servant see the pit. R.

You will show me the path to life,
fullness of joys joy in your presence,
the delights at your right hand forever. R.

Christ is our peace; he has made two peoples into one.
A reading from the letter of Saint Paul to the Ephesians.

Brothers and sisters:
Now in Christ Jesus you who once were far off
have become near by the blood of Christ.

For he is our peace, he who made both one
and broke down the dividing wall of enmity, through his flesh,
abolishing the law with its commandments and legal claims,
that he might create in himself one new person in place of the two,
thus establishing peace,
and might reconcile both with God,
in one body, through the cross,
putting that enmity to death by it.
He came and preached peace to you who were far off
and peace to those who were near,
for through him we both have access in one Spirit to the Father.

So then you are no longer strangers and sojourners,
but you are fellow citizens with the holy ones
and members of the household of God,
built upon the foundation of the Apostles and prophets,
with Christ Jesus himself as the cornerstone.

The word of the Lord.

R. Alleluia, alleluia.
This cup is the new covenant in my blood,
which will be shed for you.

R. Alleluia, alleluia. Lk 22: 20

This is my body given for you. This is my blood poured out for you.
A reading from the holy Gospel according to Luke.
22: 14-20
When the hour came, Jesus took his place at table with the apostles.
He said to them,
“I have eagerly desired to eat this Passover with you before I suffer,
for, I tell you, I shall not eat it again
until there is fulfillment in the kingdom of God.”
Then he took a cup, gave thanks, and said,
“Take this and share it among yourselves;
for I tell you that from this time on
I shall not drink of the fruit of the vine
until the kingdom of God comes.”
Then he took the bread, said the blessing,
broke it, and gave it to them, saying,
“This is my body, which will be given for you;
do this in memory of me.”
And likewise the cup after they had eaten, saying,
“This cup is the new covenant in my blood, which will be shed for you.”

The Gospel of the Lord.

The Profession of Faith is said.


Father most holy, accept the gifts of bread and wine,
our food and drink, which we offer,
so that, made holy by the power of your Spirit,
they become signs of the new covenant
and transform us into witnesses of reconciliation and peace.
Through Christ our Lord.

Christ consecrates the new covenant in his blood.

It is truly right and just,
all-holy and merciful Father,
always and everywhere to raise
a hymn of praise and thanks to you
through Jesus Christ, our Lord,
the true Passover Lamb.

He, the Eternal High Priest,
offered himself to you as a perfect sacrifice;
sharing our sufferings, he gave us his body,
and through the cross, our shining hope,
he consecrated the new covenant in his blood.

Your Church, imbued with the Holy Spirit,
basks in the glory of this mystery of love;
She refreshes us with the precious blood of Christ
as a foretaste of eternal joys.

And so, with all the Angels and Saints,
we joyfully sing the hymn of your glory
and acclaim without end:

The cup of blessing that we bless
is communion with the blood of Christ.
The bread that we break
is communion with the body of Christ.
1 Cor 10:16

Father, grant that we, who have celebrated the memorial
of the new covenant by sharing in the Eucharistic bread
and in the one chalice of the blood of your Son Jesus,
may always embrace your work of justice and peace.
Through Christ our Lord.
