Come into his
presence singing for joy.
Know that the Lord is our creator,
Yes, he is our Father, we
are his own.
We are the sheep of his green pasture,
for we are his people; he
is our God.
Brethren, let us acknowledge our sins,
that we may
prepare ourselves to
celebrate the sacred mysteries.
May almighty God have mercy on us,
forgive us our sins and bring us to
Glory to God in the highest,
and on earth peace to people of good will.
We praise you, we bless you,

Lord God, heavenly King,
O God, almighty Father.
Lord Jesus Christ, Only Begotten Son,
Lord God, Lamb of God, Son of the Father,

have mercy on us;
you take away the sins of the world,
receive our prayer;
you are seated at the right hand of the

First reading Deuteronomy 4:32-34. 39-40
to the people: 'Put this question, then, to the ages that are past, that went before you,
from the time God created man on earth: Was there ever a word so majestic, from one end of
heaven to the other? Was anything ever heard? Did ever a people hear the voice of the
living God speaking from the heart of the fire, as you heard it, and remain alive? Has any
god ventured to take to himself one nation from the midst of another by ordeals, signs,
wonders, war with mighty hand and outstretched arm, by fearsome terrors - all this that
the Lord your God did for you before your eyes in Egypt? This he showed you so that you
might know that the Lord is God indeed and that there is no other. He let you hear his
voice out of heaven for your instruction; on earth he let you see his great fire, and from
the heart of the fire you heard his word. Because he loved your fathers and chose their
descendants after them, he brought you out from Egypt, openly showing his presence and his
great power, driving out in front of you nations greater and more powerful than yourself,
and brought you into their land to give it you for your heritage, as it is still today.
this today, therefore, and take it to heart: the Lord is God indeed, in heaven above as on
earth beneath, he and no other. Keep his laws and commandments as I give them to you
today, so that you and your children may prosper and live long in the land that the Lord
your God gives you for ever.'
Resp: Happy the
people the Lord
has chosen as his own.
SECOND READING: Romans 8:14-17
Everyone moved by the Spirit is a son of God. The spirit you received is not the
spirit of slaves bringing fear into your lives again; it is the spirit of sons, and it
makes us cry out, 'Abba, Father!' The Spirit himself and our spirit bear united witness
that we are children of God. And if we are children we are heirs as well: heirs of God and
coheirs with Christ, sharing his sufferings so as to share his glory
Come, Holy Spirit, fill the hearts of your faithful
and kindle in them the fire of your love.
GOSPEL: Matthew 28:16-20
The eleven disciples set out for Galilee, to the mountain where Jesus had arranged to
meet them. When they saw him they fell down before him, though some hesitated. Jesus came
up and spoke to them. He said, 'All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me.
Go, therefore, make disciples of all the nations; baptise them in the name of the Father
and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teach them to observe all the commands I gave
you. And know that I am with you always; yes, to the end of time.'
I believe in one God, the Father almighty,
maker of heaven and earth,
of all things visible and invisible.
And 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,
