Oración Vespertina Diaria - 31 Juli 2021

    (del Libro De Oración Común, p. 80)


Adoren al Señor en la hermosura de la santidad; tiemble delante de él toda la tierra. Salmo 96:9


Dios de misericordia, 
confesamos que hemos pecado contra ti
por pensamiento, palabra y obra,
por lo que hemos hecho
y lo que hemos dejado de hacer.
No te hemos amado con todo el corazón;
no hemos amado a nuestro prójimo como a nosotros mismos.
Sincera y humildemente nos arrepentimos.
Por amor de tu Hijo Jesucristo,
ten piedad de nosotros y perdónanos;
así tu voluntad será nuestra alegría
y andaremos por tus caminos,
para gloria de tu Nombre. Amén.


Dios omnipotente tenga misericordia de nosotros,
perdone todos nuestros pecados por Jesucristo nuestro Señor,
nos fortalezca en toda bondad
y por el poder del Espíritu Santo,
nos conserve en la vida eterna. Amén.


Oh Dios, dígnate librarnos.
Señor, apresúrate a socorrernos.


Gloria al Padre, y al Hijo y al Espíritu Santo: 
como era en el principio, ahora y siempre, 
por los siglos de los siglos. Amén. [¡Aleluya!]






Luz Alegrante Phos hilaron

Luz alegrante,

claridad pura del sempiterno Padre celestial,

Jesucristo, santo y bendito:


Ahora que hemos llegado al ocaso del sol,

y nuestros ojos miran la luz vespertina,

te alabamos con himnos, oh Dios: 

Padre, Hijo y Espíritu Santo.



Digno eres de ser alabado en todos los tiempos

con voces gozosas,

oh Hijo de Dios, Dador de la vida;

por tanto te glorifica el universo entero.


Salmo 23


Salmo 27

El Señor es mi luz y mi salvación,
¿de quién podré tener miedo?
El Señor defiende mi vida,
¿a quién habré de temer?
2 Los malvados, mis enemigos,
se juntan para atacarme y destruirme;
pero ellos son los que tropiezan y caen.
3 Aunque un ejército me rodee,
mi corazón no tendrá miedo;
aunque se preparen para atacarme,
yo permaneceré tranquilo.

4 Sólo una cosa he pedido al Señor,
sólo una cosa deseo:
estar en el templo del Señor
todos los días de mi vida,
para adorarlo en su templo
y contemplar su hermosura.
5 Cuando lleguen los días malos,
el Señor me dará abrigo en su templo;
bajo su sombra me protegerá.
¡Me pondrá a salvo sobre una roca!
6 Entonces podré levantar la cabeza
por encima de mis enemigos;
entonces podré ofrecer sacrificios en el templo,
y gritar de alegría, y cantar himnos al Señor.

7 A ti clamo, Señor: escúchame.
Ten compasión de mí, ¡respóndeme!
8 El corazón me dice:
«Busca la presencia del Señor.»
Y yo, Señor, busco tu presencia.
9 ¡No te escondas de mí!
¡No me rechaces con ira!
¡Mi única ayuda eres tú!
No me dejes solo y sin amparo,
pues tú eres mi Dios y salvador.
10 Aunque mi padre y mi madre me abandonen,
tú, Señor, te harás cargo de mí.

11 Señor, muéstrame tu camino;
guíame por el buen camino
a causa de mis enemigos;
12 no me entregues a su voluntad,
pues se han levantado contra mí
testigos falsos y violentos.
13 Pero yo estoy convencido
de que llegaré a ver la bondad del Señor
a lo largo de esta vida.

14 ¡Ten confianza en el Señor!
¡Ten valor, no te desanimes!
¡Sí, ten confianza en el Señor!

Gloria al Padre, y al Hijo y al Espíritu Santo: 
como era en el principio, ahora y siempre,
por los siglos de los siglos. Amén.



Lectura de Hechos 17:16-34

16 Mientras Pablo esperaba en Atenas a Silas y Timoteo, se indignó mucho al ver que la ciudad estaba llena de ídolos. 17 Por eso discutía en la sinagoga con los judíos y con otros que adoraban a Dios, y cada día discutía igualmente en la plaza con los que allí se reunían. 18 También algunos filósofos epicúreos y estoicos comenzaron a discutir con él. Unos decían:

—¿De qué habla este charlatán?

Y otros:

—Parece que es propagandista de dioses extranjeros.

Esto lo decían porque Pablo les anunciaba la buena noticia acerca de Jesús y de la resurrección. 19 Entonces lo llevaron al Areópago, y le preguntaron:

—¿Se puede saber qué nueva enseñanza es ésta que tú nos traes? 20 Pues nos hablas de cosas extrañas, y queremos saber qué significan.

21 Y es que todos los atenienses, como también los extranjeros que vivían allí, sólo se ocupaban de oír y comentar las últimas novedades.

22 Pablo se levantó en medio de ellos en el Areópago, y dijo:

«Atenienses, por todo lo que veo, ustedes son gente muy religiosa. 23 Pues al mirar los lugares donde ustedes celebran sus cultos, he encontrado un altar que tiene escritas estas palabras: “A un Dios no conocido”. Pues bien, lo que ustedes adoran sin conocer, es lo que yo vengo a anunciarles.

24 »El Dios que hizo el mundo y todas las cosas que hay en él, es Señor del cielo y de la tierra. No vive en templos hechos por los hombres, 25 ni necesita que nadie haga nada por él, pues él es quien nos da a todos la vida, el aire y las demás cosas.

26 »De un solo hombre hizo él todas las naciones, para que vivan en toda la tierra; y les ha señalado el tiempo y el lugar en que deben vivir, 27 para que busquen a Dios, y quizá, como a tientas, puedan encontrarlo, aunque en verdad Dios no está lejos de cada uno de nosotros. 28 Porque en Dios vivimos, nos movemos y existimos; como también algunos de los poetas de ustedes dijeron: “Somos descendientes de Dios.” 29 Siendo, pues, descendientes de Dios, no debemos pensar que Dios sea como las imágenes de oro, plata o piedra que los hombres hacen según su propia imaginación. 30 Dios pasó por alto en otros tiempos la ignorancia de la gente, pero ahora ordena a todos, en todas partes, que se vuelvan a él. 31 Porque Dios ha fijado un día en el cual juzgará al mundo con justicia, por medio de un hombre que él ha escogido; y de ello dio pruebas a todos cuando lo resucitó.»

32 Al oír eso de la resurrección de los muertos, unos se burlaron y otros dijeron:

—Ya te oiremos hablar de esto en otra ocasión.

33 Entonces Pablo los dejó. 34 Pero algunos lo siguieron y creyeron. Entre ellos estaba Dionisio, que era uno de los miembros del Areópago, y también una mujer llamada Dámaris, y otros más.


Palabra del Señor.

Demos gracias a Dios.



Cántico de María - Magnificat San Lucas 1:46-55

Proclama mi alma la grandeza del Señor,

se alegra mi espíritu en Dios mi Salvador, *

porque ha mirado la humillación de su esclava.

Desde ahora me felicitarán todas las generaciones, *

porque el Poderoso ha hecho obras grandes por mí;

su Nombre es santo.

Su misericordia llega a sus fieles, *

de generación en generación.

El hace proezas con su brazo; *

dispersa a los soberbios de corazón.

Derriba del trono a los poderosos, *

y enaltece a los humildes.

A los hambrientos los colma de bienes, *

y a los ricos despide vacíos.

Auxilia a Israel, su siervo, *

acordándose de la misericordia,

Como lo había prometido a nuestros padres, *

en favor de Abrahán y su descendencia para siempre.

 

Gloria al Padre, y al Hijo y al Espíritu Santo: 

como era en el principio, ahora y siempre,

por los siglos de los siglos. Amén.


Lectura de San Marcos 8:1-10

Un día en que de nuevo se había juntado mucha gente y no tenían nada que comer, Jesús llamó a sus discípulos y les dijo:

2 —Siento compasión de esta gente, porque ya hace tres días que están aquí conmigo y no tienen nada que comer. 3 Y si los mando sin comer a sus casas, pueden desmayarse por el camino, porque algunos han venido de lejos.

4 Sus discípulos le contestaron:

—¿Pero cómo se les puede dar de comer en un lugar como éste, donde no vive nadie?

5 Jesús les preguntó:

—¿Cuántos panes tienen ustedes?

—Siete —contestaron ellos.

6 Entonces mandó que la gente se sentara en el suelo, tomó en sus manos los siete panes y, habiendo dado gracias a Dios, los partió y se los iba dando a sus discípulos, para que ellos los repartieran entre la gente, y así lo hicieron. 7 Tenían también unos cuantos pescaditos; Jesús pronunció sobre ellos la bendición, y también mandó repartirlos. 8 Todos comieron hasta quedar satisfechos, y recogieron los pedazos sobrantes en siete canastas. 9 Los que comieron eran cerca de cuatro mil. Luego Jesús los despidió, 10 subió a la barca con sus discípulos y se fue a la región de Dalmanuta.

Palabra del Señor.

Demos gracias a Dios.


Credo de los Apóstoles

Creemos en Dios Padre todopoderoso,

creador del cielo y de la tierra.


Creemos en Jesucristo, su único Hijo, nuestro Señor.

Fue concebido por obra y gracia del Espíritu Santo

y nació de la Virgen María.

Padeció bajo el poder de Poncio Pilato.

Fue crucificado, muerto y sepultado.

Descendió a los infiernos.

Al tercer día resucitó de entre los muertos.

Subió a los cielos,

y está sentado a la diestra de Dios Padre.

Desde allí ha de venir a juzgar a vivos y muertos.


Creemos en el Espíritu Santo,

la santa Iglesia católica,

la comunión de los santos,

el perdón de los pecados,

la resurrección de los muertos,

y la vida eterna. Amén.



El Señor sea con ustedes.

Y con tu espíritu.

Oremos.

ofensas,

Te rogamos, Señor.

interminable sobre los que aguardamos tu venida, para

que nuestros labios te alaben, nuestras vidas te bendigan

y nuestra adoración en la mañana te dé gloria; por

Jesucristo nuestro Señor. Amén.


Colecta por la paz

Santísimo Dios, manantial de todos los buenos deseos, de

Concede a tus siervos la paz que el mundo no les puede

dar, a fin de que nuestras mentes estén fijas en hacer tu

voluntad, y para que, librados del temor de todo

enemigo, vivamos en paz y tranquilidad; por las

bondades de Cristo Jesús nuestro Salvador. Amén.

camino, enciende nuestros corazones, y despierta la

esperanza, para que te conozcamos tal como te revelas en

las Escrituras y en la fracción del pan. Concede esto por

amor de tu Nombre. Amén.



Oraciónes del Pueblo

con cada petición, dicimos:

Señor en tu misericordia 

escucha nuestra petición




Oración de San Juan Crisóstomo

Dios todopoderoso, 

que nos diste la gracia para unirnos en este momento, 

a fin de ofrecerte nuestras súplicas en común; 

y que, por tu muy amado Hijo, 

nos prometiste que, 

cuando dos o tres se congregan en su Nombre, 

tú estarás en medio de ellos: 

Realiza ahora, Señor, 

nuestros deseos y peticiones como mejor nos convenga; 

y concédenos en este mundo el conocimiento de tu verdad 

y en el venidero, la vida eterna. Amén.



Gloria a Dios, cuyo poder, actuando en nosotros, puede

realizar todas las cosas infinitamente mejor de lo que

podemos pedir o pensar: Gloria a él en la Iglesia de

generación en generación, y en Cristo Jesús por los siglos

de los siglos. AménEfesios 3:20, 21

H-335 - I am the Bread of Life




I am the Bread of Life
You who come to Me shall not hunger;
And who believe in Me shall not thirst,
No one can come to Me
Unless the Father beckons.

And I will raise you up,
And I will raise you up,
And I will raise you up
On the last day!

The bread that I will give
Is My flesh for the life of the world,
And if you eat of this Bread,
You shall live forever,
You shall live forever!

And I will raise you up,
And I will raise you up,
And I will raise you up
On the last day!

Unless you eat The Flesh of the Son of Man
And drink of His Blood,
And drink of His Blood,
You shall not have life within you.

And I will raise you up,
And I will raise you up,
And I will raise you up
On the last day!

I am the Resurrection,
I am the Life
If you believe in Me,
Even though you die,
You shall live forever.

And I will raise you up,
And I will raise you up,
And I will raise you up
On the last day!

you take away the sin of the world:

The Lord Al-might-y grant us a peaceful night
and a per-fect end. A-men.
Our help is in/the Name of/the Lord;
The mak-er of heaven and earth.

Al-might-y God, our heaven-ly Fath-er:
We have sinned a-gainst you,
through our own fault,
in thought, and word, and deed,

and in what we have left un-done.
For the sake of your Son
our Lord Je-sus Christ,
for-give us all our of-fens-es;

and grant that we may serve you
in _ new-ness of life,
to the glory of your Name. A-men.
May the Al-might-y God grant us

for-give-ness of all our sins,
and the grace and comfort of/the Ho-ly Spi-rit.
O God, make speed to save us.
O Lord, make haste to help us.

Psalm 51


Tenor     Soprano     Response     Cantor     Bass     Alto     PDF     All     




Have mercy on me, O God,
be-cause of your loyal love!
Be-cause of your great com-pas-sion,
wipe a-way my re-bel-lious acts!

Wash a-way my wrong-do-ing!
Cleanse me of all my sins!
For I am a-ware of my re-bel-lious acts;
I am for-ever conscious of my sin.

A-gainst you, you a-bove all, I have sinned;
I have done what is evil in your sight.
So you are just when you con-front me;
you are right when you con-demn me.

Look, I was guilty of sin from birth,
a sinner the moment my mother con-ceived me.
Look, you de-sire in-tegri-ty in/the inner man;
you want me to pos-sess wis-dom.

Cleanse me with hys-sop and I will be pure;
wash me and I will be whiter than snow.
Grant me the ulti-mate joy of being for-giv-en!
May the bones you crushed re-joice!

Hide your face from my sins!
Wipe a-way all my guilt!
Cre-ate for me a pure heart, O God!
Re-new a right spirit with-in me!

Do not re-ject me!
Do not take your holy Spi-rit a-way from me!
Let me a-gain ex-peri-ence the joy of your de-liver-ance!
Sus-tain me by giving me the de-sire to o-bey!

Then I will teach rebels your merci-ful ways,
and sinners will turn to you.
Res-cue me from/the guilt of mur-der, O God,
the God who de-livers me!

Then my tongue will shout for joy
be-cause of your righteous-ness.
O Lord, give me the words!
Then my mouth will praise you.

Certain-ly you do not want a sacri-fice,
or else I would offer it;
you do not de-sire a burnt sacri-fice.
The sacri-fices God de-sires are a hum-ble spirit O God,

a hum-ble and re-pent-ant heart you will not re-ject.
Be-cause you favor Zi-on, do what is good for her!
Cre-ate for me a pure heart, O God!
Re-new a right spirit with-in me!

Forti-fy the walls of Je-ru-sa-lem!
Then you will ac-cept the pro-per sacri-fic-es,
burnt sacri-fices and whole offer-ings;
then bulls will be sacri-ficed on your al-tar.

Glory to/the Fath-er, and to/the Son,
and to/the Ho-ly Spi-rit:
as it was in/the be-ginning, is now,
and will be for-ever A-men.


Readings



A reading from Mark 9:30-41


They went out from there and passed through Galilee. But Jesus did not want anyone to know, for he was teaching his disciples and telling them, “The Son of Man will be betrayed into the hands of men. They will kill him, and after three days he will rise.” But they did not understand this statement and were afraid to ask him.

Then they came to Capernaum. After Jesus was inside the house he asked them, “What were you discussing on the way?” But they were silent, for on the way they had argued with one another about who was the greatest. After he sat down, he called the Twelve and said to them, “If anyone wants to be first, he must be last of all and servant of all.” He took a little child and had him stand among them. Taking him in his arms, he said to them, “Whoever welcomes one of these little children in my name welcomes me, and whoever welcomes me does not welcome me but the one who sent me.”

John said to him, “Teacher, we saw someone casting out demons in your name, and we tried to stop him because he was not following us.” But Jesus said, “Do not stop him because no one who does a miracle in my name will be able soon afterward to say anything bad about me. For whoever is not against us is for us. For I tell you the truth, whoever gives you a cup of water because you bear Christ’s name will never lose his reward.

Here ends the reading.
Thanks be to God!

Readings



A reading from Acts 20:1-16


After the disturbance had ended, Paul sent for the disciples, and after encouraging them and saying farewell, he left to go to Macedonia. After he had gone through those regions and spoken many words of encouragement to the believers there, he came to Greece, where he stayed for three months. Because the Jews had made a plot against him as he was intending to sail for Syria, he decided to return through Macedonia. Paul was accompanied by Sopater son of Pyrrhus from Berea, Aristarchus and Secundus from Thessalonica, Gaius from Derbe, and Timothy, as well as Tychicus and Trophimus from the province of Asia. These had gone on ahead and were waiting for us in Troas. We sailed away from Philippi after the days of Unleavened Bread, and within five days we came to the others in Troas, where we stayed for seven days. On the first day of the week, when we met to break bread, Paul began to speak to the people, and because he intended to leave the next day, he extended his message until midnight. (Now there were many lamps in the upstairs room where we were meeting.) A young man named Eutychus, who was sitting in the window, was sinking into a deep sleep while Paul continued to speak for a long time. Fast asleep, he fell down from the third story and was picked up dead. But Paul went down, threw himself on the young man, put his arms around him, and said, “Do not be distressed, for he is still alive!” Then Paul went back upstairs, and after he had broken bread and eaten, he talked with them a long time, until dawn. Then he left. They took the boy home alive and were greatly comforted.

We went on ahead to the ship and put out to sea for Assos, intending to take Paul aboard there, for he had arranged it this way. He himself was intending to go there by land. When he met us in Assos, we took him aboard and went to Mitylene. We set sail from there, and on the following day we arrived off Chios. The next day we approached Samos, and the day after that we arrived at Miletus. For Paul had decided to sail past Ephesus so as not to spend time in the province of Asia, for he was hurrying to arrive in Jerusalem, if possible, by the day of Pentecost.

Thanks be to God!

Saturday - You are God


Tenor     Soprano     Response     Cantor     Bass     Alto     PDF     All     



You are God: we praise you;
You are the Lord; we ac-claim you;
You are the e-ter-nal Fath-er:
All cre-a-tion wor-ships you.

To you all an-gels, all the powers of heav-en,
Cher-u-bim and Ser-a-phim, sing in end-less praise:
Holy, ho-ly, holy Lord, God of power and might,
heav-en and earth are full of your glo-ry.

The glori-ous compan-y of a-postles praises you.
The no-ble fellow-ship of proph-ets praises you.
The white-robed army of mar-tyrs praises you.
Through-out the world the holy Church ac-claims you;

Fath-er, of majes-ty un-bound-ed,
your true and only Son, worthy of all wor-ship,
and the Ho-ly Spi-rit, advo-cate and guide.
Three in one, we praise you for ev-er.

You, Christ, are the king of glo-ry,
the e-ter-nal Son of/the Fath-er.
When you be-came man to set us free
you did not shun the Vir-gin's womb.

You over-came the sting of death
and o-pened the kingdom of heaven to all be-liev-ers.
You are seated at God's right hand in glo-ry.
We be-lieve that you will come and be our judge.

Come then, Lord, and help your peo-ple,
bought with/the price of your own blood,
and bring us with your saints
to glo-ry ever-last-ing.


A reading from Mark 9:30-41


They went out from there and passed through Galilee. But Jesus did not want anyone to know, for he was teaching his disciples and telling them, “The Son of Man will be betrayed into the hands of men. They will kill him, and after three days he will rise.” But they did not understand this statement and were afraid to ask him.

Then they came to Capernaum. After Jesus was inside the house he asked them, “What were you discussing on the way?” But they were silent, for on the way they had argued with one another about who was the greatest. After he sat down, he called the Twelve and said to them, “If anyone wants to be first, he must be last of all and servant of all.” He took a little child and had him stand among them. Taking him in his arms, he said to them, “Whoever welcomes one of these little children in my name welcomes me, and whoever welcomes me does not welcome me but the one who sent me.”

John said to him, “Teacher, we saw someone casting out demons in your name, and we tried to stop him because he was not following us.” But Jesus said, “Do not stop him because no one who does a miracle in my name will be able soon afterward to say anything bad about me. For whoever is not against us is for us. For I tell you the truth, whoever gives you a cup of water because you bear Christ’s name will never lose his reward.

Here ends the reading.
Thanks be to God!

Saturday - First Song of Isaiah

Sure-ly, it is God who saves me;
I will trust in him and not be a-fraid.
For the Lord is my stronghold and my sure de-fense,
and he will be my Sav-ior.

There-fore you shall draw water with re-joic-ing
from the springs of sal-va-tion.
And on that day you shall say,
Give thanks to/the Lord and call up-on his Name;

Make his deeds known a-mong the peo-ples;
see that they re-member that his Name is ex-alt-ed.
Sing the praises of/the Lord,
for he has done great things,

And this is known in all the world.
Cry a-loud, in-habit-ants of Zi-on, ring out your joy,
for the great one in/the midst of you
is the Ho-ly One of Is-ra-el.

Glory to/the Fath-er, and to/the Son
and to/the Ho-ly Spi-rit:
as it was in/the be-ginning, is now,
and will be for-ever A-men.
