HYMN

Father, we thank you; you loved us
and redeemed us in Christ, your Son,
To Him, the Sacrificial Lamb, we raise
our hymn of eternal praise and blessing.

Through the Blood he shed for us,
he lavished upon us the great gift
of Saint Maria De Mattias,
imbued with the charism of love.

We glorify you, Holy Spirit;
with your love you sanctified her,
and fashioned her into a faithful adorer
of the most precious blood of Christ.

With Saint Maria we sing eternal praise,
to the Father, source of life,
to the Son for the gift of love,
passed on to us by the Divine Spirit. Amen


Or another suitable hymn approved by ecclesiastic authority.



Ant. 1 How lovable and infinitely good is Jesus;
in him we find everything: the fullness of grace and love.


PSALM 113                             Praise the name of the Lord
He has thrown down the powerful from their thrones and has lifted up the lowly. (Luke 1:52).

Praise, you servants of the Lord *
praise the name of the Lord.
Blessed be the name of the Lord *
both now and forever.

From the rising of the sun to its setting *
let the name of the Lord be praised.
High above all nations is the Lord; *
above the heavens God's glory.

Who is like the Lord, our God *
enthroned on high, looking down on heaven and earth?

The Lord raises the needy from the dust, *
lifts the poor from the ash heap,
Seats them with princes, *
the princes of the people,

Gives the childless wife a home,*
the joyful mother of children.

Ant. 1
How lovable and infinitely good is Jesus;
in him we find everything: the fullness of grace and love.


Ant. 2. Let us glorify the Father;
in his Son he speaks to us and redeems us.

PSALM 147                      Jerusalem Restored

Come, I will show you the bride, the spouse of the Lamb. (Revelation 21:9).

O, praise the Lord, Jerusalem! *
Zion, praise your God!
He has strengthened the bars of your gates, *
he has blessed the children within you,

He established peace on your borders, *
he feeds you with finest wheat.
He sends out his word to the earth; *
and swiftly runs his command.

He showers down snow white as wool, *
he scatters hoar-frost like ashes.
He hurls down hailstones like crumbs. *
The waters are frozen at his touch.

He sends forth his word and it melts them; *
at the breath of his mouth the waters flow.
He makes his work known to Jacob, *
to Israel his laws and decrees.

He has not dealt thus with other nations; *
he has not taught them his decrees.


Ant. 2 Let us glorify the Father;
in his Son he speaks to us and redeems us.


Ant. 3
Blessed be the Lord Jesus Christ,
who has scattered the darkness of my ignorance
and called me to adoring and redeeming love.

CANTICLE          cf. Ephesians 1: 3-10         God our Savior

Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, †
who has blessed us in Christ *
with every spiritual blessing in the heavens.

God chose us in him, †
before the foundation of the world, *
to be holy and without blemish before him.

In love he destined us †
for adoption to himself through Jesus Christ, *
in accord with the favor of his will,
for the praise of the glory of his grace *
that he granted us in the beloved.

In Christ we have redemption by his blood, *
the forgiveness of transgressions,
in accord with the riches of his grace *
that he lavished upon us.

In all wisdom and insight †
God has made known to us the mystery of his will *
in accord with his favor that he set forth in him,
as a plan for the fullness of times, *
to sum up all things in Christ, in heaven and on earth.


Ant. 3 Blessed be the Lord Jesus Christ,
who has scattered the darkness of my ignorance
and called me to adoring and redeeming love.


READING                                                    Romans 8:28-30

We know that all things work for good for those who love God, who are called according to his purpose. For those he foreknew, he also predestined to be conformed to the image of his Son, so that he might be the firstborn among many brothers. And those he predestined he also called; and those he called he also justified; and those he justified he also glorified.


RESPONSORY

R. The Lord has chosen you * and has favored you.
-- The Lord has chosen you and has favored you.
V. He has taken you to live with him,
-- and has favored you.
Glory to the Father and to the Son and to the Holy Spirit.
-- The Lord has chosen you and has favored you.

Magnificat Ant.
Do not fear, for I have ransomed you;
I have called you by name; you belong to me.

My soul proclaims the greatness of the Lord; *
my spirit rejoices in God my savior.

For he has looked upon his handmaid's lowliness; *
behold, from now on all ages will call me blessed.

The Mighty One has done great things for me, *
and holy is his name.

His mercy is from age to age *
to those who fear him.

He has shown might with his arm, *
dispersed the arrogant of mind and heart.

He has thrown down the rulers from their thrones*
but lifted up the lowly.

The hungry he has filled with good things; *
the rich he has sent away empty.

He has helped Israel his servant, *
remembering his mercy,

according to his promise to our fathers, *
to Abraham and to his descendants forever.

Magnificat Ant. Do not fear, for I have ransomed you;
I have called you by name; you belong to me.


INTERCESSIONS

We joyfully thank God our Creator, who in his goodness has filled Saint Maria De Mattias with many gifts of nature and grace, making her an apostle of the blood of his Son.
Let us acclaim him:
We praise you, Father, with the entire Church redeemed by the blood of Christ.

Father most merciful, we glorify you because in Saint Maria De Mattias you showed the world your charity and your mercy,
- grant that we, too, may be imbued with these virtues and witness them with courage and fidelity.

Father most holy, may we be filled with your Spirit, poured out on your sons and daughters,
- according to your loving plan.

Father of infinite goodness, you made Saint Maria De Mattias a fearless herald of your word and a faithful witness of your love,
- awaken in your Church young people who will enthusiastically follow the footsteps of your crucified and risen Son.

Father most just, who called Saint Maria De Mattias to “labor for the glories of the divine Blood”,
- grant that we may celebrate your justice and clemency with renewed hearts.

Father, source of light, grant that all those who sang the glories of the Lamb on earth,
- may join the chorus of the blessed in heaven singing your glories forever.

Our Father.

PRAYER
Father most holy, who in your loving plan adorned Saint Maria De Mattias with exceptional gifts of grace so that in the Church she might be a witness to the blood of Christ; grant that, through her intercession, we may faithfully adore the Lamb without blemish who died and rose for us, celebrate with thanksgiving the new and eternal covenant in his blood and with zeal proclaim to all peoples the power of the love of Christ crucified. Through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever.
