Invitation



Pentecost - Thursday Invitation


Tenor     Soprano     Response     Cantor     Bass     Alto     PDF     All     



The Lord is in his ho-ly tem-ple;
let all the earth keep si-lence be-fore him
I was glad when they said to me,
Let us go to the house of the Lord.

Let the words of my mouth
and the med-i-ta-tion of my heart
be ac-cep-ta-ble in your sight, O Lord,
my strength and my re-deem-er.

Thus says the high and loft-y One
who in-hab-its e-ter-ni-ty,
whose name is Ho-ly,
I dwell in the high and ho-ly place

Send out your light
and your truth, that they may lead me,
and bring me to your ho-ly hill
and to your dwel-ling place.

Give thanks to the Lord, and call up-on his Name;
make known his deeds a-mong the peo-ples.
Lord, o-pen our lips.
And our mouth shall pro-claim your praise.

Glo-ry to the Fath-er, and to the Son,
and to the Ho-ly Spi-rit:
as it was in the be-gin-ning, is now,
and will be for ev-er. A-men.


Thursday - Venite


Tenor     Soprano     Response     Cantor     Bass     Alto     PDF     All     




Come, let us sing to the Lord;
let us shout for joy to the Rock of our sal-va-tion.
Let us come be-fore his pres-ence with thanks-giv-ing
and raise a loud shout to him with psalms.

For the Lord is a great God,
and a great King a-bove all gods.
In his hand are the cav-erns of the earth,
and the heights of the hills are his al-so.

The sea is his, for he made it,
and his hands have mold-ed the dry land.
Come, let us bow down, and bend the knee,
and kneel be-fore the Lord our Mak-er.

For he is our God,
and we are the peo-ple of his pas-ture
and the sheep of his hand.
Oh, that to-day you would heark-en to his voice!


Psalms



Psalm 18:1-20


Tenor     Soprano     Response     Cantor     Bass     Alto     PDF     All     



I love you, Lord, my source of strength!
The Lord is my high ridge,
my strong-hold, my de-liv-er-er.
My God is my rock-y sum-mit

where I take shel-ter, my shield,
the horn that saves me, and my ref-uge.
I called to the Lord, who is wor-thy of praise,
and I was de-liv-ered from my en-e-my.

The waves of death en-gulfed me,
the cur-rents of cha-os o-ver-whelmed me.
The ropes of She-ol tight-ened a-round me,
the snares of death trapped me.

In my dis-tress I called to the Lord;
I cried out to my God.
From his heav-en-ly tem-ple he heard my voice;
he lis-tened to my cry for help.

The earth heaved and shook;
the roots of the moun-tains trem-bled;
they heaved be-cause he was an-gry.
Smoke as-cend-ed from his nose;

fire de-voured as it came from his mouth;
he hurled down fier-y coals.
He made the sky sink as he de-scend-ed;
a thick cloud was un-der his feet.

He mount-ed a winged an-gel and flew;
he glid-ed on the wings of the wind.
He shroud-ed him-self in dark-ness, in thick rain clouds.
From the bright-ness in front of him came hail and fier-y coals.

The Lord thun-dered in the sky;
and the Most High shout-ed.
He shot his ar-rows and scat-tered them,
man-y light-ning bolts and rout-ed them.

The depths of the sea were ex-posed;
the in-ner re-gions of the world
were un-cov-ered by your bat-tle cry, Lord,
by the pow-er-ful breath from your nose.

He reached down from a-bove
and he took hold of me;
he pulled me from the surg-ing wat-er.
He res-cued me from my strong en-e-mies,

from those who hate me,
for they were too strong for me.
They con-front-ed me in my day of ca-lam-i-ty,
but the Lord de-liv-ered me.

He brought me out into a wide o-pen place;
he de-liv-ered me be-cause he was pleased with me.
The Lord re-paid me for my god-ly deeds;
he re-ward-ed my blame-less be-hav-ior.

Glo-ry to the Fath-er, and to the Son,
and to the Ho-ly Spi-rit:
as it was in the be-gin-ning, is now,
and will be for ev-er. A-men.


Readings



A reading from Job 8:1-10, 20-22


Then Bildad the Shuhite spoke up and said:


“How long will you speak these things,
seeing that the words of your mouth
are like a great wind?


Does God pervert justice?
Or does the Almighty pervert what is right?


If your children sinned against him,
he gave them over to the penalty of their sin.


But if you will look to God,
and make your supplication to the Almighty,


if you become pure and upright,
even now he will rouse himself for you,
and will restore your righteous home.


Your beginning will seem so small,
since your future will flourish.


“For inquire now of the former generation,
and pay attention to the findings
of their ancestors;


For we were born yesterday and do not have knowledge,
since our days on earth are but a shadow.


Will they not instruct you and speak to you,
and bring forth words
from their understanding?


“Surely, God does not reject a blameless man,
nor does he grasp the hand
of the evildoers.


He will yet fill your mouth with laughter,
and your lips with gladness.


Those who hate you will be clothed with shame,
and the tent of the wicked will be no more.”

Here ends the reading.
Thanks be to God!

A reading from Acts 10:17-33


Now while Peter was puzzling over what the vision he had seen could signify, the men sent by Cornelius had learned where Simon’s house was and approached the gate. They called out to ask if Simon, known as Peter, was staying there as a guest. While Peter was still thinking seriously about the vision, the Spirit said to him, “Look! Three men are looking for you. But get up, go down, and accompany them without hesitation, because I have sent them.” So Peter went down to the men and said, “Here I am, the person you’re looking for. Why have you come?” They said, “Cornelius the centurion, a righteous and God-fearing man, well spoken of by the whole Jewish nation, was directed by a holy angel to summon you to his house and to hear a message from you.” So Peter invited them in and entertained them as guests.

On the next day he got up and set out with them, and some of the brothers from Joppa accompanied him. The following day he entered Caesarea. Now Cornelius was waiting anxiously for them and had called together his relatives and close friends. So when Peter came in, Cornelius met him, fell at his feet, and worshiped him. But Peter helped him up, saying, “Stand up. I too am a mere mortal.” Peter continued talking with him as he went in, and he found many people gathered together. He said to them, “You know that it is unlawful for a Jew to associate with or visit a Gentile, yet God has shown me that I should call no person defiled or ritually unclean. Therefore when you sent for me, I came without any objection. Now may I ask why you sent for me?” Cornelius replied, “Four days ago at this very hour, at three o’clock in the afternoon, I was praying in my house, and suddenly a man in shining clothing stood before me and said, ‘Cornelius, your prayer has been heard and your acts of charity have been remembered before God. Therefore send to Joppa and summon Simon, who is called Peter. This man is staying as a guest in the house of Simon the tanner, by the sea.’ Therefore I sent for you at once, and you were kind enough to come. So now we are all here in the presence of God to listen to everything the Lord has commanded you to say to us.”

Here ends the reading.
Thanks be to God!

Thursday - Song of Mary


Tenor     Soprano     Response     Cantor     Bass     Alto     PDF     All     




My soul pro-claims the great-ness of the Lord,
my spi-rit re-joic-es in God my Sav-ior;
for he has looked with fa-vor on his low-ly serv-ant.
From this day all gen-er-a-tions will call me blessed:

the Al-might-y has done great things for me,
and ho-ly is his Name.
He has mer-cy on those who fear him
in eve-ry gen-er-a-tion.

He has shown the strength of his arm,
he has scat-tered the proud in their con-ceit.
He has cast down the might-y from their thrones,
and has lift-ed up the low-ly.

He has filled the hun-gry with good things,
and the rich he has sent a-way emp-ty.
He has come to the help of his serv-ant Is-ra-el,
for he has re-mem-bered his prom-ise of mer-cy,

The prom-ise he made to our fath-ers,
to A-bra-ham and his chil-dren for-ev-er.
My soul pro-claims the great-ness of the Lord,
my spi-rit re-joic-es in God my Sav-ior;

Glo-ry to the Fath-er, and to the Son,
and to the Ho-ly Spi-rit:
as it was in the be-gin-ning, is now,
and will be for ev-er. A-men.


Prayers



Thursday Creed


Tenor     Soprano     Response     Cantor     Bass     Alto     PDF     All     





We be-lieve in God, the Fath-er al-might-y,
cre-a-tor of heav-en and earth.
We be-lieve in Je-sus Christ,
his on-ly son, our Lord.

He was con-ceived by the pow-er of the Ho-ly Spi-rit
and born of the Vir-gin Ma-ry.
He suf-fered un-der Pon-tius Pi-late,
was cru-ci-fied, died, and was bur-ied.

He de-scend-ed to the dead.
On the third day he rose a-gain.
He a-scend-ed into heav-en,
and is seat-ed at the right hand of the Fath-er.

He will come a-gain
to judge the liv-ing and the dead.
We be-lieve in the Ho-ly Spi-rit,
the ho-ly cath-o-lic Church,

the com-mun-ion of saints,
the for-give-ness of sins,
the res-ur-rec-tion of the bod-y,
and the life ev-er-last-ing. A-men.
