Christ was humbler yet even to accepting death on a cross,
Christ was humbler yet, but God raised him high,
but God raised him high and gave him the name which is above all names.
Glory to the Father, glory to the Son,
glory to the Holy Spirit now and for ever. Amen.

St Andrew Gloria
Glory to God in the highest and on earth peace to people of 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 Isaiah 53:10-11 ©


The Lord has been pleased to crush his servant with suffering. If he offers his life in atonement,
he shall see his heirs, he shall have a long lifeand through him what the Lord wishes will be done.
His soul’s anguish over, he shall see the light and be content.
By his sufferings shall my servant justify many, taking their faults on himself.


 Psalm 32 He fills the earth with his love.

The word of the Lord is faithful, we trust him in all he does.
The Lord loves justice, justice and fairness, he fills the earth,
he fills the earth, he fills the earth with his love.
He fills the earth with his love.

By his word the heav’ns were made; the breath of his mouth made the stars.
The Lord looks on those, those who revere him, on those who hope, on those who hope,
on those who hope in his love.
He fills the earth with his love.

 And so we await the Lord, the Lord is our help and shield.
We trust that your love will be upon us, we place all our hope, we place all our hope,
we place all our hope in you.
He fills the earth with his love

A reading from the Letter to the Hebrews 4:14-16 ©

Our high priest is one who has been tempted in every way that we are

Since in Jesus, the Son of God, we have the supreme high priest who has gone through to the highest heaven, we must never let go of the faith that we have professed. For it is not as if we had a high priest who was incapable of feeling our weaknesses with us; but we have one who has been tempted in every way that we are, though he is without sin. Let us be confident, then, in approaching the throne of grace, that we shall have mercy from him and find grace when we are in need of help.

Gospel Acclamation Jn14:6

Alleluia, alleluia! Alleluia, alleluia!  I am the Way, the Truth and the Life,  No-one can come to the Father except through me. Alleluia, alleluia! Alleluia, alleluia!

Gospel Mark 10:35-45 ©

The Son of Man came to give his life as a ransom for many

James and John, the sons of Zebedee, approached Jesus. ‘Master,’ they said to him ‘we want you to do us a favour.’ He said to them, ‘What is it you want me to do for you?’ They said to him, ‘Allow us to sit one at your right hand and the other at your left in your glory.’ ‘You do not know what you are asking’ Jesus said to them. ‘Can you drink the cup that I must drink, or be baptised with the baptism with which I must be baptised?’ They replied, ‘We can.’ Jesus said to them, ‘The cup that I must drink you shall drink, and with the baptism with which I must be baptised you shall be baptised, but as for seats at my right hand or my left, these are not mine to grant; they belong to those to whom they have been allotted.’

When the other ten heard this they began to feel indignant with James and John, so Jesus called them to him and said to them, ‘You know that among the pagans their so-called rulers lord it over them, and their great men make their authority felt. This is not to happen among you. No; anyone who wants to become great among you must be your servant, and anyone who wants to be first among you must be slave to all. For the Son of Man himself did not come to be served but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many.’



The Nicene Creed


I believe in one God, the Father almighty,
maker of heaven and earth, of all things visible and invisible.
I believe in one Lord Jesus Christ, the Only Begotten Son of God,
born of the Father before all ages.
God from God, Light from Light, true God from true God,
begotten, not made, consubstantial with the Father;
through him all things were made.
For us men and for our salvation he came down from heaven,

At the words that follow, up to and including and became man, we bow.

 and by the Holy Spirit was incarnate of the Virgin Mary, and became man.
For our sake he was crucified under Pontius Pilate, he suffered death and was buried,
and rose again on the third day in accordance with the Scriptures.
He ascended into heaven and is seated at the right hand of the Father.
He will come again in glory to judge the living and the dead
& his kingdom will have no end.
I believe in the Holy Spirit, the Lord, the giver of life,
who proceeds from the Father and the Son,
who with the Father and the Son is adored and glorified,
who has spoken through the prophets.
I believe in one, holy, catholic and apostolic Church.
I confess one Baptism for the forgiveness of sins
&I look forward to the resurrection of the dead,
& the life of the world to come.   Amen


that we may be like Christ in the generosity we show in serving others.  Lord, hear us

That this weekend’s  UN Day for the Eradication of Poverty may help us realise that the duty to support the poor & the vulnerable is not an option but a duty.   Lord, hear us

Let’s pray for peace throughout the world, especially just now in Afghanistan, Syria, the Lebanon, the Yemen, Ethiopia and in so many counties where people’s lives are spoiled or taken from them by violence and war.   Lord, hear us

Let’s pray for the sick, especially just now for Fr Alastair McLellan, Eileen McLean, Fr Joseph Chambers, Christine Lyons,  Marie Rogers,  Mary Clunie, Kathleen Mallon, Tom Corrigan,  Yvonne Watt, John Gibson,  Jim Brough and any others of our families or parish who are ill.   Lord, hear us

Let’s pray for our deceased relatives and friends,
including Ishbel McMillan, Kathleen Gibson, Brian Gallen, Anne Judge, Teresa McKeane, Heather Franche, Anthony O’Flagherty, and Brian Hughes,
and for those whose anniversaries fall about now: including Peter Swinbank, James Lyons, Annie Harris, Leo Gilbert, Mike Daly, Annie Gara,  Nicola Clare, Archie McKay, Kathleen McCann, and Bridie McCallion.   Lord, hear us

The Preparation of the Gifts:  As the bread and wine are brought to the altar we sing:

Though  Jesus Christ: Canticle 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.


St Andrew  Holy, holy, holy Lord God of hosts . . .

Memorial:   We proclaim your Death, O Lord, and profess your resurrection until you come again, until you come.

Lamb of God, you take away the sins of the world, have mercy on us
Lamb of God, you take away the sins of the world, have mercy on us
Lamb of God, you take away the sins of the world, grant us peace.


Eat this bread, drink this cup, come to me and never be hungry.
Eat this bread, drink this cup, come to me and you will not thirst.


The love I have for you, my Lord,  is only a shadow of your love for me;
only a shadow of your love for me, your deep abiding love.

My own belief in you, my Lord, is only a shadow of your faith in me,
only a shadow of your faith in me, your deep and lasting faith.

My life is in your hands, my life is in your hands.
My love for you will grow, my God, your light in me will shine.

The dream I have today, my Lord, is only a shadow of your dreams for me,  only a shadow of all that will be if I but follow you.

The joy I feel today, my Lord, is only a shadow of your joys for me,
only a shadow of your joys for me, when we meet face to face.

Text Box: Prayer for the darth – Pope Francis All powerful God, you are present in the universe and in the smallest of your creatures. You embrace with your tenderness all that exists. Pour out upon us the power of your love, that we may protect life and beauty. Fill us with your peace, that we may live as brothers and sisters, harming no one. O God of the poor, help us to rescue the abandoned and forgotten of this earth, so precious in your eyes. Bring healing to our lives, that we may protect the world and not prey on it, that we may sow beauty, not pollution and destruction. Touch the hearts of those who look only for gain at the expense of the poor and the earth. Teach us to discover the worth of each thing, to be filled with awe and contemplation, to recognize that we are profoundly united with every creature as we journey towards your infinite light. We thank you for being with us each day. Encourage us, we pray, in our struggle, for justice, love and peace.
