1st Reading : Malachi 3:19-20a

Psalm 26: The Lord is my light, the Lord is my help.

The Lord is my light and my help: of whom then, shall I be afraid?
The strength in my life is the Lord,  before whom shall I ever tremble?
The Lord is my light, the Lord is my help.

 One thing I ask of the Lord:  to live with him for evermore.
O Lord, hear my voice, in mercy answer!  I seek you, dismiss not your servant.   
The Lord is my light, the Lord is my help.

  Reading II: 2 Thessalonians 3:7-12 

Alleluia, alleluia, alleluia, alleluia. 
Stay awake and stand ready for you do not know the hour when the Son of man is coming. 
Stay awake!  You do not know.   Alleluia. . . .

Gospel: Luke 21:5-19

The Preparation  of Gifts

I cannot tell how he whom angels worship should set his love upon the sons of men,
or why as shepherd he should seek  the wand’rers to bring them back, they know not how or when.
But this I know that he was born of Mary, when Bethlem’s manger was his only home,
and that he lived at Nazareth and laboured, and so the Saviour, Saviour of the world is here.

 I cannot tell how he will win the nations, how he will claim his earthly heritage,
how satisfy the needs and aspirations of east and west, of sinner and of sage.
But this I know: all flesh shall see his glory, and he shall reap the harvest he has sown,
and some glad day his son shall shine in splendour when he the Saviour, Saviour of the world is known.

 I cannot tell how all the lands shall worship, when at his bidding every storm is stilled,
or who can say how great the jubilation when all the hearts of men with love are filled.
But this I know: the skies will thrill with rapture, and myriad, myriad human voices sing,
 and earth to heaven, and heaven to earth will answer: “At last the Saviour; Saviour of the world, is King!”

 St Bride Sanctus with the memorial: Christ has died. .  and Lamb of God. . .

 Communion: As we eat this bread and drink this cup, though many we are one;
One bread, one cup, one faith, one church, one Lord for evermore. (2)
      
 Hymn:  Make me a channel of your peace. Where there is hatred, let me bring your love. . . . . . . .
