A reading from the Book of Proverbs: 8: 22-31

Psalm 8 
What is man that you should keep him in mind?  
Mortal man that you should care for him?

When I see the heavens which your hands have made,
moon and stars and everything which you arranged,
what is man that you should keep him in mind,
mortal man that you should ever care for him?

What is man that you should keep him in mind?  
Mortal man that you should care for him?

 You have made him little less than any god,
you have blest and honoured him above all things,
you have given him a share in your power,
you have put creation underneath his feet.

 What is man that you should keep him in mind?  
Mortal man that you should care for him?

We pray for the Pope and for our Bishops, that the Church, and all of us, may be a source of moral strength and guidance for others.   Lord, hear us

 We pray for children preparing for First Communion and for the parents and catechists who help them.                Lord, hear us

 The Preparation  of Gifts:

 Blest be the Lord the God of Israel: Canticle of Zechariah:

 Blest be the Lord the God of Israel, who came to us; and brought us back from sin.
God raised for us a Saviour who is mighty; his Saviour-Son from David’s house and line.
God promised this thro holy men & women who spoke for him down thro the mists of time

The Saviour comes to free us from our foes, from evil hands, from those who wish us ill. 
So God’s great love for all his chosen people is thus fulfilled; in these our present times.        
God’s sacred oath, his covenant most holy is called to mind, his promises made true.

 God swore his oath to Abraham and Sarah,  to give us all our freedom from all fear;
to save each one from those who seek to harm them, that we might serve in holiness of life,
that we might serve in justice and in truth, our ev’ry day in presence of the Lord.

 Please take one of the leaflets for the :       Day for Life

 Lord, for your faithful people, life is changed, not ended

Day for Life, initiated by the late Pope John Paul II, is the day of the year the Catholic Church in England, Ireland, Scotland and Wales
dedicates to celebrating the dignity of human life from conception to natural death.

       Day for Life 2010 will help unpack the Church’s teaching on death; it will highlight the    
importance of the sacrament of the dying, of praying for the dead and of     
accompanying the dying person as they journey towards God. It will also point towards         
the presence and consolation of the community of faith and all those who ‘have gone         
before us marked with the sign of faith’.

       Each year, in England, Ireland, Scotland and Wales, the Bishops’ Conferences work    
closely together to celebrate Day for Life. In Scotland the Day is celebrated on 31 May    
– The Feast of the Visitation of the Virgin Mary. In England and Wales, Day for Life       
falls on 25 July and in Ireland it will be celebrated on 3 October.

On this site you will find information, resources, video, podcasts and much more.
