HYMN

O Father, you surround us with unspeakable love
and bathe us in new light,
while, at daybreak, a shining joy
brightens our hearts.

You crowned Saint Maria De Mattias
with honor and glory;
and now, unceasingly, the eternal light
of your dwelling envelops her.

In heaven she experiences and enjoys
the treasure that she earned by loving on earth.
Faithful Adorer of the Lamb,
she suffered, lived and died for him.

Glory to the Father, king of the universe,
to the Son, suffering redeemer,
sacrificed on the cross for love,
and to the Holy Sprit, who groans within us. Amen.

Or:

Clap your hands, all you peoples, *
Sing unto God with a voice of jubilation.

For the Lord high and mighty *
has shown to us his mercy,

For he has not spared his own Son *
but has delivered him up in our behalf,

That we might be redeemed by his blood *
and freed from our sins;

That justified in his blood *
we might be saved from his wrath;

That we who were separated from him *
might be reconciled through the blood of his Son.

O Lord, my God, what can I render unto you *
for all the good you have bestowed upon me?

I will take the chalice of salvation *
and I will call upon the power of this blood.

Sing to Jesus, all you saints, *
and make known the memory of his holiness.

For he has loved us and has washed us in his blood *
and he has become our helper and our redeemer.

Blessed forever be the blood of Christ *
which has wrought such wonders in us.

Blessed be Jesus for all eternity, *
and may the heavens and the earth be filled with the glory of his blood.

Come, let us adore Christ, the Son of God, *
who has redeemed us with his blood. Amen

Or another suitable hymn approved by ecclesiastical authority.


Ant.1 I sought him whom my heart loves;
I found him and I will not leave him.

PSALM 63: 2-9                                                   A soul thirsting for God
The Church thirsts for her Savior, yearning to drink at the fount of living water that springs up for eternal life. (Cf Cassiodorus).

O God, you are my God, for you I long; *
for you my soul is thirsting.
My body pines for you *
like a dry, weary land without water.

So I gaze on you in the sanctuary *
to see your strength and your glory.
For your love is better than life, *
my lips will speak your praise.

So I will bless you all my life, *
in your name I will lift up my hands.
My soul shall be filled as with a banquet, *
my mouth shall praise you with joy.

On my bed I remember you. *
On you I muse through the night
for you have been my help; *
in the shadow of your wings I rejoice.

My soul clings to you; *
your right hand holds me fast.

Ant.1 I sought him whom my heart loves;
I found him and I will not leave him

Ant. 2. May every creature praise God
in the Blood of Jesus.

Ant. 3 Standing before the throne of God,

PSALM 149              The joy of God’s holy people
Let the sons of the Church, the children of the new people, rejoice in Christ, their King (Hesychius).

Sing a new song to the Lord, *
his praise in the assembly of the faithful.
Let Israel rejoice in its maker, *
let Zion’s sons exult in their king.

Let them praise his name with dancing *
and make music with timbrel and harp.
For the Lord takes delight in his people. *
He crowns the poor with salvation.

Let the faithful rejoice in their glory, *
shout for joy and take their rest.
Let the praise of God be on their lips *
and a two-edged sword in their hand,

to deal out vengeance to the nations *
and punishment on all the peoples;
to bind their kings in chains *
and their nobles in fetters of iron;

to carry out the sentence pre-ordained; *
this honor is for all his faithful.
let us sing a new song to the Lamb.

Ant. 3 Standing before the throne of God,
let us sing a new song to the Lamb.


READING                                                     1 Corinthians 1:26-30

Consider your own calling, brothers and sisters. Not many of you were wise by human standards, not many were powerful, not many were of noble birth. Rather, God chose the foolish of the world to shame the wise, and God chose the weak of the world to shame the strong, and God chose the lowly and despised of the world, those who count for nothing, to reduce to nothing those who are something, so that no human being might boast before God. It is due to him that you are in Christ Jesus, who became for us wisdom from God, as well as righteousness, sanctification, and redemption.


RESPONSORY

R. God sustains her * with the light of his face.
-- God sustains her with the light of his face.
V. She cannot waver: God is with her
-- with the light of his face.
Glory to the Father and to the Son and to the Holy Spirit.
-- God sustains her with the light of his face.


Benedictus Ant. Let us bless the Lord;
in Jesus Christ he has visited and redeemed us.

Blessed be the Lord, the God of Israel; *
he has come to his people and set them free.

He has raised up for us a mighty savior, *
born of the house of his servant David.

Through his holy prophets he promised of old †
that he would save us from our enemies, *
from the hands of all who hate us.

He promised to show mercy to our fathers *
and to remember his holy covenant.

This was the oath he swore to our father Abraham: *
to set us free from the hands of our enemies,

free to worship him without fear, *
holy and righteous in his sight all the days of our life.

You, my child, shall be called the prophet of the Most High; *
for you will go before the Lord to prepare his way,

to give his people knowledge of salvation *
by the forgiveness of their sins.

In the tender compassion of our God *
the dawn from on high shall break upon us,

to shine on those who dwell in darkness and the shadow of death, *
and to guide our feet into the way of peace.

Glory to the Father and to the Son *
and to the Holy Spirit.

As it was in the beginning, is now and ever shall be *
world without end. Amen

Benedictus Ant. Let us bless the Lord;
in Jesus Christ he has visited and redeemed us.


INTERCESSIONS

With confidence, we address our prayer to Christ, spouse and crown of virgins:
Lord, may your kingdom come.

Lord Jesus, in baptism you made us a royal priesthood:
- make our whole life a sacrifice pleasing to you.

Lord Jesus, by the blood you shed on the cross you reconciled the entire world:
- overcome human injustice and be our peace.

Lord Jesus, in the Eucharistic sacrifice you render the sacrifice of the cross present:
- make our hearts attentive to the cry of suffering humanity.

Lord Jesus, your associated your Virgin Mother to your work of salvation:
- grant us the grace to collaborate in this mystery of saving love through our life.

Lord Jesus, in Saint Maria De Mattias you offer us an example of a strong, wise woman:
- grant us evangelical wisdom and strength in our times of trial.


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.
