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 You gather us on the mountain of your delight
and give us your word of peace and salvation.


PSALM 122                                           Greeting to the holy city Jerusalem
You have come to Mount Zion, to the city of the living God, heavenly Jerusalem (Hebrews 12:22).

I rejoiced when I heard them say:*
“Let us go to God’s house.”
And now our feet are standing*
within your gates, O Jerusalem.

Jerusalem is built as a city*
strongly compact.

It is there that the tribes go up, the tribes of the Lord. †
For Israel’s law it is,*
there to praise the Lord’s name.

There were set the thrones of judgment*
of the house of David.

For the peace of Jerusalem pray:*
“Peace be to your homes!
May peace reign in your walls,*
in your palaces, peace!”

For love of my brethren and friends, *
I say: “Peace upon you!”
For love of the house of the Lord, *
I will ask for your good.


Ant. 1 You gather us on the mountain of your delight
and give us your word of peace and salvation.

Ant. 2 Founded on the love of Christ the Lord,
we remain firm in our vocation.


PSALM 127                                                               Apart from God our labor is worthless
Therefore, neither the one who plants nor the one who waters is anything, but only God, who causes the growth. You are God’s field, God’s building. (1 Corinthians 3:7, 9).

If the Lord does not build the house, *
in vain do its builders labor;
if the Lord does not watch over the city, *
in vain does the watchman keep vigil.

In vain is your earlier rising, †
your going later to rest,
you who toil for the bread you eat:*
when he pours gifts on his beloved while they slumber.

Truly sons are a gift from the Lord, *
a blessing, the fruit of the womb.
Indeed the sons of youth *
are like arrows in the hand of a warrior.

O the happiness of the man *
who has filled his quiver with these arrows!
he will have no cause for shame *
when he disputes with his foes in the gateways.


Ant. 2 Founded on the love of Christ the Lord,
we remain firm in our vocation.

Ant. 3 With Saint Maria De Mattias,
we sing to the Father of his mystery of love,
revealed to us in his son, Jesus Christ.


CANTICLE                  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 With Saint Maria De Mattias,
we sing to the Father of his mystery of love,
revealed to us in his son, Jesus Christ.


READING                                                                                  1 John 4: 7-11

Beloved, let us love one another, because love is of God; everyone who loves is begotten by God and knows God. Whoever is without love does not know God, for God is love. In this way the love of God was revealed to us: God sent his only Son into the world so that we might have life through him. In this is love: not that we have loved God, but that he loved us and sent his Son as expiation for our sins. Beloved, if God so loved us, we also must love one another.


RESPONSORY

R. The Lord has chosen you * and favored you.
-- The Lord has chosen you and favored you.
V. In his tent he invited you to live *
-- and favored you.
Glory to the Father…
-- The Lord has chosen you and favored you.

Magnificat Ant.
Those who are washed in the blood of the Lamb
follow him and will be sharers in his endless glory.

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. Those who are washed in the blood of the Lamb
follow him and will be sharers in his endless glory.


INTERCESSIONS

As evening approaches, with Saint Maria De Mattias we join our voice with that of the whole Church who in this hour recalls Christ’s evening sacrifice on the Cross:
You have redeemed us, O Lord, with your Blood.

Lord Jesus, you were raised up on the cross to draw all peoples to you,
- direct and lead all peoples back to you.

Lord Jesus, you walked beside the disciples of Emmaus to encourage and teach them,
- infuse new vigor in all those whom you call to lead your pilgrim Church in the world.

Lord Jesus, your death is our life,
- grant that leaders of institutions be able to create justice and peace and combat all forms of exploitation.

Lord Jesus, you moved among us providing peace, comfort and dignity,
- make us instruments of your consolation for those crucified by illness, desperation and poverty.

Lord Jesus, in your great goodness open your Kingdom to our deceased brothers and sisters,
- let them participate at the banquet of eternal joy with Maria De Mattias and all the saints.


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.
