 5th Sunday of the Year A    6th February 2011         

Alleluia, sing to Jesus, his the sceptre, his the throne;
alleluia, his the triumph, his the victory alone:
hark the songs of peaceful Sion thunder like a mighty flood:
Jesus, out of every nation, hath redeemed us by his blood.

Alleluia, not as orphans are we left in sorrow now;
alleluia, he is near us, faith believes, nor questions how; 
though the cloud from sight received him when the forty days were o’er,
shall our hearts forget his promise, “I am with you evermore”?

 Penitential Rite

Psalm 24: Lord, your ways are faithfulness, your ways are love.

Lord, let me know your ways. Teach me the paths to follow.
Make me walk in truth and teach me for you are God, my saviour.   
Lord, your ways are faithfulness        . . . . .

Remember your mercy, Lord, the love you have always shown.
In your love remember me for your goodness knows no limit. 
Lord, your ways are faithfulness, your ways are love.

He teaches the poor his way, the humble and those who stray,
For the Lord is good and upright in faithfulness and love.
Lord, your ways are faithfulness, your ways are love.

The Intercessions

For the grace of self-understanding: that we and our parish may recognize ourselves as salt, as light and as the City upon the Hill, and become truly instruments of God’s healing and transformation for our society.  Lord, hear us

 We pray that peaceful development of a more just society may happen throughout the world, and that nations and governments will live and work together respectfully and patiently so that people everywhere may have better lives.  We remember also those injured or killed in the unrest in Egypt and North Africa. Lord, hear us

For the Church and the churches throughout Scotland: that they may continue to pray and work together for the restoration of the Church’s unity.  Lord, hear us

For all who are ill, and for those who support and care for them:  
including Joseph Boyle, Dina Conetta, Margaret McCafferty, Moira Montgomery,
May Conroy, Alan Hutcheson, Carol Gallagher, Jean Martin,  Sadie Coll, Margaret Lanigan,  Kenneth Fee, Peter Gibson, Cathy and Leo Gilbert,  Linda Giulianotti, Kathleen Mallon, Joe McGhee, Margaret Padden, Liam Brogan,  Fr Joseph Chambers, Cathy Bruce, Jane Henderson, Mary McKenna, Anne & Bernard McNiffe,  Mary O’Hare.   
Lord, hear us

We remember those who have died in the community, and those who mourn,
including Brother Jerome, Robert Logie, and Margaret Duffy and her family,     
all those whose anniversary falls about now,     
and  those who have been injured or killed while serving in the armed forces.  
Lord, hear us . .  

The Preparation of the Gifts: 
Canticle Phil 2: 6-11   Tune: My God Loves Me

 Though  Jesus Christ was in the form of God,
he did not count such equality to be grasped. 

Instead, he freely emptied out himself,
and took the form of a servant, was born like us.

 In human form he chose humility,
and gave himself up to dying upon a cross.

 Because of this our God exalted him, and raised him,
gave him a name above every name.

 At Jesus’ name now every knee should bow,
be they in heav’n or on earth or creation’s depths.
