Love can take many hearts and make them one, uniting them in the love of God: it makes them open, friendly, peaceful, one in mind and heart; it makes them capable of learning the will of God. St. Paul of the Cross


morning Morning

Praise the Lord, O my soul.
I will praise the Lord all my life;
I will sing praise to my God while I live. . . Psalm 146

Praise the Lord,
my mind and memory,
my thoughts and deeds of this day.
I will praise the Lord wherever I go;
I will sing praise,
for the Lord is good.

Prise the Lord,
strangers and friends;
let us praise him for he loves us;
let us sing praise to our God while we live.

Glory to the Father. . .

Reading

Love is patient; love is kind. Love is not jealous, it does not put on airs, it is not snobbish. Love is never rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not prone to anger; neither does it brood over injuries. Love does not rejoice in what is wrong but rejoices with the truth. There is no limit to love's forbearance, to its trust, its hope, its power to endure. 1 Corinthians 13:4-7

Intercessions

Blessed are you, Creator of heaven and earth,
--you made the world and offer it life.
Remember us as we begin our work,
--that we work in harmony with others.
May we do what is useful for our brothers and sisters,
--and together build a world that is pleasing to you.
To us and all whom we meet today,
--give your joy and peace.

eveningEvening

The Lord is my light and my salvation,
whom should I fear?
The Lord is my life's refuge;
of whom should I be afraid?

One thing I ask of the Lord;
this I seek:
To dwell in the house of the Lord all the days of my life.
That I may gaze on the loveliness of the Lord
and contemplate his temple.

Hear, O Lord, the sound of my call;
have pity on me, and answer me.
Of you my heart speaks;
you my glance seeks;
your presence, O Lord, I seek. Psalm 27

Glory to the Father. . .

Reading

May the Lord increase you and make you overflow with love for one another and for all, even as our love does for you. May he strengthen your hearts, making them blameless and holy before our God and Father at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ with all his holy ones. 1 Thessalonians 3:12-13

Intercessions

Jesus, our Savior, from your pierced heart the church was born,
--by your holy Cross give us new life.
Jesus, our Savior, the centurion proclaimed you were God's Son,
--by your holy Cross increase our faith.
Jesus, our Savior, you called the good thief into paradise,
--by your holy Cross, call us.
Jesus, our Savior, you cured the sick and raised the dead,
--by your holy Cross, save us.
