HYMN

Redeemed by the blood of the Lamb,
our garments cleansed in him,
saved and made new by Love,
we sing praise to you, Lord Christ.

With you we are raised on the Cross,
with you, baptized into your death,
in you, O Christ, we are now risen,
and restored to life in the heart of the Father.

O Christ, your life is an immense font
of joy, springing up eternally;
unending splendor, in you is immersed
the human smallness of the redeemed.

Our day passes, declining;
Lord, remain with us this evening,
and may the certainty of our faith
light up the advancing night.

Grant that our death be absorbed
by the glorious light of the Resurrection
and, having died your own death,
may we live in you, who are our life.

O Father of kindness, we ask you this
through your Son who is risen,
and through the eternal Love who leads us
toward the sweet light of your face.
Amen.

Or another suitable hymn approved by ecclesiastical authority.


Ant 1 You are a priest forever
according to the order of Melchizedek.


PSALM 110:1-5, 7                                       The Messiah, king and priest
For he must reign until he has put all his enemies under his feet (1 Corinthians 15:25).

The Lord says to you, my lord: *
“Take your throne at my right hand,
while I make your enemies your footstool.”

The scepter of your sovereign might the Lord will extend from Zion. *
The Lord says: “Rule over your enemies!

Yours is princely power from the day of your birth.*
In holy splendor before the daystar,
like the dew I begot you.”

The Lord has sworn and will not waver:*
“Like Melchizedek you are a priest forever.”

At your right hand is the Lord, *
who crushes kings on the day of wrath,
who drinks from the brook by the wayside *
and thus holds high the head.

Ant. 1 You are a priest forever
according to the order of Melchizedek.

Ant. 2 Christ Jesus gave himself
as a ransom for all.

PSALM 116:1-13                                                  Giving Thanks in the Temple
Through him (Christ) let us continually offer God a sacrifice of praise (Hebrews 13:15).

I love the Lord, who listened *
to my voice in supplication,
Who turned an ear to me *
on the day I called.

I was caught by the cords of death; *
the snares of Sheol had seized me;

I felt agony and dread. †
Then I called on the name of the Lord,*
“O Lord, save my life!”

Gracious is the Lord and just;*
yes, our God is merciful.
The Lord protects the simple; *
I was helpless, but God saved me.

Return, my soul, to your rest; *
the Lord has been good to you.

For my soul has been freed from death, †
my eyes from tears, *
my feet from stumbling.

I shall walk before the Lord *
in the land of the living.

I kept faith, even when I said, *
“I am greatly afflicted!”
I said in my alarm, *
“No one can be trusted!”

How can I repay the Lord *
for all the good done for me?
I will raise the cup of salvation *
and call on the name of the Lord


Ant. 2 Christ Jesus gave himself
as a ransom for all.

Ant. 3 To make us holy and spotless before the Father,
Jesus lovingly accepted the cross.


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 To make us holy and spotless before the Father,
Jesus lovingly accepted the cross.


READING                                                         1 Peter 1:18-21

You realize that you were ransomed from your futile conduct, handed on by your ancestors, not with perishable things like silver or gold but with the precious blood of Christ as of a spotless unblemished lamb. He was known before the foundation of the world but revealed in the final time for you, who through him believe in God who raised him from the dead and gave him glory, so that your faith and hope are in God.

RESPONSORY
R. Let us gaze upon the blood of Christ,
* and we will understand how precious it is before the Father.
-- Let us gaze upon the blood of Christ, and we will understand how precious it is before the Father.
V. It was poured out for our salvation
-- and we will understand how precious it is before the Father.
Glory to the Father and to the Son and to the Holy Spirit.
-- Let us gaze upon the blood of Christ, and we will understand how precious it is before the Father.

Magnificat Ant. With Mary, Woman of the New Covenant,
let us glorify the Father who has redeemed us in his Son.

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. With Mary, Woman of the New Covenant,
let us glorify the Father who has redeemed us in his Son.

INTERCESSIONS

With faith and gratitude, let us beseech Christ who has reconciled humanity with God in his blood:
By your blood poured out for us, hear us, Lord Jesus!

Lord Jesus, you gave your life in a sacrifice of expiation at the close of day;
- we pray for the Church: make her an effective instrument of unity, communion and peace for the whole human race.

Lord Jesus, your blood poured out for us is an expression of your immense love;
- we pray for all peoples: guide and hear their desires for freedom, justice and truth.

Lord Jesus, with your precious blood you justified us before the Father;
- we pray for the poor, the suffering, and the marginalized: in their need, let them experience solidarity, help and support from all of us.

Lord Jesus, by the power of your blood you free us from the Evil One;
- we pray for all those who proclaim the Gospel: give them honesty in communication, integrity of life, and joy in sharing your victory over the powers of evil.

Lord Jesus, with your blood you purify and nourish your Church;
- we pray for this community: may the Eucharist, summit and source of life, be its daily food for mission.

Lord Jesus, crucified and risen for us, you granted pardon to the repentant thief;
- we pray for our dear deceased relatives and friends: grant them a share in the eternal nuptial banquet in the glory of the blessed.

Our Father.

Prayer

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
