St Leo’s

Holy Thursday 2011

 Mass

Of

The Lord’s Supper

 We bring in the Holy Oils of Baptism, Chrism and the Sick  which the Archbishop blessed this morning at the Chrism Mass for use in all the parishes of Glasgow.

We wrap round ourselves today the great name of the Trinity,
the Three in One, the One in Three, the God who lives eternally.

 Christ within us, Christ around us, Christ beside, Christ surround us,
Christ behind us, Christ before us, Christ to comfort and restore us.

 Christ in quiet, Christ in danger, Christ in mouth of friend and stranger,
Christ beneath us, Christ above us, Christ to cherish and to love us.

 God is was who made creation, eternal Father, Spirit, Word.
Praise to the Lord of our salvation, salvation is of Christ the Lord.

St Patrick’s Breastplate from St Patrick’s Cantata: words (c) Stephen E Smyth;  music (c)  David Harris

 

 A Litany of Praise: 

Lord Jesus, you came to gather the nations into the peace of the Kingdom of God. 
Lord, have mercy.  Lord, have mercy.

 You come in word and sacrament to strengthen us in holiness. 
Christ, have mercy.  Christ, have mercy.

 You will come in glory with salvation for all your people. 
Lord, have mercy.  Lord, have mercy.

 

 St Andrew’s

Glory to God in the highest.  Peace to his people, peace on earth. 
Glory to God in the highest. Peace to his people, peace on earth.

 

 

 Liturgy of the Word

  

1st Reading: Exodus 12: 1-8, 11-14

 
Psalm 115: The blessing-cup that we bless is a communion with Christ. 

How can I repay the Lord for his goodness to me?
The cup of salvation I will raise, I will call on his name.
The blessing Cup that we bless is a communion with Christ.

 Precious in the eyes of the Lord  is the death of his faithful. 
Your servant, Lord, your servant I, You have loosened my bonds.
The blessing Cup that we bless is a communion with Christ.

 A sacrifice of thanks I make to him, I will call on his name.
My vows to the Lord I will fulfil in the assembly of God.
The blessing Cup that we bless is a communion with Christ.

Love one another as I love you;
Love one another as I love you.

Praise to you, O Christ, King of eternal glory.

 

A Reading from the Holy Gospel according to John

The Washing of the Feet

 In the upper room Jesus and his friends
met to celebrate their final supper. 
Jesus took a bowl, knelt to wash their feet, told them:
You must do for others as I do for you.
You must do for others as I do for you.

Peter was annoyed: “This will never do!
You as master should not play the servant!”
Jesus took a towel,, knelt to dry their feet, told them:
You must do for others as I do for you.
You must do for others as I do for you.

 We are here today, learning as we pray,
that the master chose to be the Servant. 
We, like him, will see God in all we meet: truly
You must do for others as I do for you.
You must do for others as I do for you.

 Liturgy of the Eucharist

 Preparation of Gifts:  we present to the Lord the Alms for SCIAF and the poor.

 The choir sings:  Lead me, Lord, lead me in thy righteousness.
Make my way plain before my face. 
Lead me, Lord, lead me in thy righteousness.
Make my way plain before my face.
For it is thou, Lord, thou, Lord only who makest me dwell in safety. 
For it is thou, Lord, thou, Lord only who makest me dwell in safety.

 St Andrew Agnus Dei:

 Communion Antiphon: 

This is the bread come down from heaven.  Whoever eats of it will never die.
This is the cup of eternal life; whoever drinks of it will live for ever.

 hymn:
This is my body, broken for you, bringing you wholeness,
making you free. Take it and eat it, and when you do, do it in love for  me. . . . . . . . .l 

 Prayer

 You alone are holy, and you alone are Lord,
And you alone are the Most High, Jesus Christ our Lord.

 

 

 During the procession to the hall:

Benedictus qui venit in nomine Domini.Benedictus qui venit in nomine Domini.
Hosanna, hosannah, hosannah in excelsis.

 Tantum ergo Sacramentum veneremur cernui:
et antiquum documentum novo cedat ritui;
praestet fides supplementum sensuum defectui.
 

Genitori, genitoque laus et jubiliatio,
salus, honor, virtus quoque sit et benedictio;
procedenti ab utroque compar sit laudatio.  Amen

Let’s spend a moment or two praying for our own intentions –

For the healing of any distress or tension in our families,
for the unity of all Christians,
for the solving of international  distrust, disagreements and ill will. 

Adoremus in aeternum, Sanctissimum sacramentum.Laudate Dominum, omnes gentes. 
Laudate eum, omnes populi. 
Quoniam confirmata est super nos misericordia ejus
Et veritas Domini manet in aeternum.
Gloria Patri et Filio Et Spiritui Sancto
Sicut erat in principio et nunc et semper
et in saecula saeculorum. Amen.

Adoremus in aeternum, Sanctissimum sacramentum

 

 Please leave quietly so that those who want to stay to spend some time in quiet prayer may be undisturbed.

Holy Thursday

Night Prayer at 9.00

 Glory to the Father, Glory to the Son
Glory to the Holy Spirit, now, and forever.   
Amen.

Together we say:

The peace of God be with you
the peace of Christ be with you,
the peace of the Spirit be with you
from the day that we have here today
until the day of the end of your lives.
The grace of God be with you,
the grace of Christ be with you
for an hour,
for ever,
for eternity.

 For a few moments, We, who are aware of the support given us by so
many, pray for those we love and those we know to be in need.

  Psalm 114

I walk with you, my Lord. Each day be at my side.

 I love the Lord for he has heard my cry; with love he hears my voice.
And when I call to him in need, he listens to my prayer.
I walk with you, my Lord. Each day be at my side.

The snares of death have threatened me, O Lord, with sorrow and distress.
Deliver me, O Lord my God!  In you I put my trust.
I walk with you, my Lord.  Each day be at my side.

 How kind and gracious is the Lord our God!  Compassionate his ways!
The Lord protects the simple heart, the poor and weak he saves.
I walk with you, my Lord.  Each day be at my side.

 Since he has kept my eyes from bitter tears and saved my soul from death,
Now I will walk the path of life with you, Lord, at my side.
I walk with you, my Lord.  Each day be at my side.

Our Father . . . . . .

All glory to God the Father of all, To the Son and the Spirit give praise.
O circle us now with love and with peace.
Our strength and our guide, Lord, we pray.
We have nothing to fear when you are so near.
You are King of the night and the day.  

All glory to God the Father of all, To the Son and the Spirit give praise.
I ask you, my God, to bless and protect
the fam’ly and friends that I love.
Enfold us in love, surround us with peace;
Be our strength and our light and our life. 
All glory to God the Father of all, To the Son and the Spirit give praise.
