It would not be just for us to be exempt from the scourge which afflicts the world.

We should be the first to share the unhappiness of others, to take upon ourselves the sorrows of others, and to unite ourselves with all the suffering peoples of the world. St. Paul of the Cross

morning Morning

Praise the Lord, all you nations,
glorify God, all you peoples!
For steadfast is God's kindness toward us
and the fidelity of the Lord endures forever. . . Psalm 117

Praise the Lord, faraway space,
glorify God,
every home and family!
For God has brought us to the beginning of this day,
and God will see us to its end.

Praise the Lord, world of today,
come with your blessings;
come with your struggles.

Praise the Lord!

Glory to the Father. . .

May God, the source of all patience and encouragement, enable you to live in perfect harmony with one another according to the spirit of Christ Jesus, so that with one heart and voice you may glorify God, the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ. Accept one another, then, as Christ accepted you, for the glory of God.
Romans 15:5-7

Intercessions

O God, you are our blessed light,
--awaken us this new day.
By the resurrection of your Son, you have enlightened the world,
--and given us new hope.
By your Spirit you gave wisdom to the disciples of your Son,
--send your Spirit upon us and make us faithful.
Light of the nations, shine on those who dwell in darkness,
--open their eyes to know you, the only true God.

eveningEvening

Out of the depths I cry to you,
Lord, hear my voice. . . Psalm 130

From my fears, failures and sins,
I cry to you.
Lord, hear my voice.

From the depths of my heart I cry to you,
from the darkness of myself.
Fom life's shadow I cry to you.
Lord, hear my voice.

For you are merciful, Lord,
forgiving to us all.
And so I wait, Lord,
your mercy comes as sure as the dawn.

Glory to the Father. . .

More tortuous than all else is the human heart,
beyond remedy; who can understand it?

I, the Lord, alone probe the mind and test the heart
To reward everyone according to his ways,
according to the merit of his deeds. Jeremiah 17:9-10

Intercessions

O God, blessed through all ages, you guide us always with your light,
--we praise you through Jesus Christ.
O God, blessed through all ages, you nourish us with daily bread,
--we praise you through Jesus Christ.
O God, blessed through all ages, you strengthen us with your powerful grace,
--we praise you through Jesus Christ.
God of glory, blessed through all ages, you glorify those who love you,
--we praise you through Jesus Christ.
