Mass
You must love

You must love the Lord your God with all your heart and soul;
you must love the Lord your God with all your mind and strength,
and you must love your neighbour as you love yourself.
You must love the Lord your God with heart and soul and mind and strength
and you neighbour as yourself.

St Andrew Gloria: Glory to God in the highest and on earth peace to people off good will.

We praise you, we bless you, we adore you, we glorify you,
we give you thanks for your great glory,
Lord God, heavenly King, O God, almighty Father.

Lord Jesus Christ, Only Begotten Son,
Lord God, Lamb of God, Son of the Father,
you take away the sins of the world,  have mercy on us;
you take away the sins of the world,  receive our prayer;
you are seated at the right hand of the Father,  have mercy on us.

For you alone are the Holy One, you alone are the Lord,
you alone are the Most High, Jesus Christ,
with the Holy Spirit in the glory of God the Father. Amen.

 

First reading
Wisdom 2:12,17-20 ©

The wicked prepare to ambush the just man

The godless say to themselves:
‘Let us lie in wait for the virtuous man, since he annoys us
and opposes our way of life,
reproaches us for our breaches of the law
and accuses us of playing false to our upbringing.
‘Let us see if what he says is true,
let us observe what kind of end he himself will have.
If the virtuous man is God’s son, God will take his part
and rescue him from the clutches of his enemies.
Let us test him with cruelty and with torture,
and thus explore this gentleness of his
and put his endurance to the proof.
Let us condemn him to a shameful death
since he will be looked after – we have his word for it.’

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.


Second reading James 3:16-4:3 ©

The wisdom that comes from above makes for peace

Wherever you find jealousy and ambition, you find disharmony, and wicked things of every kind being done; whereas the wisdom that comes down from above is essentially something pure; it also makes for peace, and is kindly and considerate; it is full of compassion and shows itself by doing good; nor is there any trace of partiality or hypocrisy in it. Peacemakers, when they work for peace, sow the seeds which will bear fruit in holiness.
  Where do these wars and battles between yourselves first start? Isn’t it precisely in the desires fighting inside your own selves? You want something and you haven’t got it; so you are prepared to kill. You have an ambition that you cannot satisfy; so you fight to get your way by force. Why you don’t have what you want is because you don’t pray for it; when you do pray and don’t get it, it is because you have not prayed properly, you have prayed for something to indulge your own desires.

Gospel Acclamation Jn8:12
Alleluia, alleluia!
I am the light of the world, says the Lord;
anyone who follows me will have the light of life. Alleluia!

Gospel Mark 9:30-37 ©

Anyone who welcomes one of these little children in my name welcomes me

Jesus and his disciples made their way through Galilee; and he did not want anyone to know, because he was instructing his disciples; he was telling them, ‘The Son of Man will be delivered into the hands of men; they will put him to death; and three days after he has been put to death he will rise again.’ But they did not understand what he said and were afraid to ask him.
  They came to Capernaum, and when he was in the house he asked them, ‘What were you arguing about on the road?’ They said nothing because they had been arguing which of them was the greatest. So he sat down, called the Twelve to him and said, ‘If anyone wants to be first, he must make himself last of all and servant of all.’ He then took a little child, set him in front of them, put his arms round him, and said to them, ‘Anyone who welcomes one of these little children in my name, welcomes me; and anyone who welcomes me welcomes not me but the one who sent me.’

Preparation of the Gifts:

A new commandment I give unto you: that you love one another
as I have loved you, that you love one another, as I have loved you.

By this shall all men know that you are my disciples –
if you have love one for another.
By this shall all men know that you are my disciples –
if you have love one for another.

A new commandment I give unto you: that you love one another
As I have loved you, that you love one another, as I have loved you

 

Communion:

There is one Lord, one faith, one baptism,
there is one God, who is Father of all.

There is one Lord, one faith, one baptism,
there is one God, who is Father of all.

 

As we eat this bread.

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.

 In the desert you gave us mana to eat, you gave us bread from heaven.
Now you come in Word and sacrament. We all thank you, Lord as we say.

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.
