Evening Prayer - Monday May 23 2022




Confession

Most merciful God,
we confess that we have sinned against you
in thought, word, and deed,
by what we have done,
and by what we have left undone.
We have not loved you with our whole heart;
we have not loved our neighbors as ourselves.
We are truly sorry and we humbly repent.
For the sake of your Son Jesus Christ,
have mercy on us and forgive us;
that we may delight in your will,
and walk in your ways,
to the glory of your Name.

Amen

May Almighty God have mercy on us,
forgive us all our sins
through our Lord Jesus Christ,
strengthen us in all goodness,
and by the power of the Holy Spirit
keep us in eternal life.

Amen



Monday - Evensong Invitation


Tenor     Soprano     Response     Cantor     Bass     Alto     PDF     All     



Grace to you and peace from God our Fa-ther
and from/the Lord Je-sus Christ.
Worship the Lord in/the beauty of his holi-ness;
let/the whole earth trem-ble be-fore him.

Let my prayer be set forth/in your sight as in-cense,
the lifting up/of my hands as/the evening sacri-fice.
I will bless the Lord who gives/me coun-sel;
my heart teaches me, night after night.

I have set/the Lord always be-fore me;
be-cause he is/at my right hand, I shall not fall.
O God, make speed/to save us.
O Lord, make haste/to help us.

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.


O Gracious Light

O gracious Light,
pure brightness of the
everliving Father in heaven.
O Jesus, Christ, holy and blessed!

Now as we come to the setting of the sun,
and our eyes behold the vesper light,
we sing your praises, O God:
Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.

you are worthy at all times
to be praised by happy voices,
O Son of God, O Giver of life,
and to be glorified through all the worlds.

Psalm 77


Tenor     Soprano     Response     Cantor     Bass     Alto     PDF     All     



I will cry out to God and call for help!
I will cry out to God and he will pay at-tention to me.
In my time of trouble I sought the Lord.
I kept my hand raised in prayer through-out the night.

I re-fused to be comfort-ed.
I said, I will re-member God while I groan;
I will think/a-bout him
un-til all my strength leaves me.

You held my eye-lids o-pen;
I was troubled and could not speak.
I thought of days of old, a-bout ancient times.
I said, During the night I will re-member the song I once sang;

I will think very careful-ly.
I tried to make sense of what was happen-ing.
I asked, Will the Lord re-ject me for-ev-er?
Will he never a-gain show me his fa-vor?

Has his loyal love disap-peared for-ev-er?
Has his promise failed for-ev-er?
Has God for-gotten to be merci-ful?
Has his an-ger stifled his com-pas-sion?

Then I said, I am sickened by/the thought
that the Most High might/be-come in-ac-tive.
I will re-member the works of/the Lord.
Yes, I will re-member the a-mazing things you did long/a-go!

I will think/a-bout all you have done;
I will re-flect up-on your deeds!
O God, your deeds are ex-traordin-ar-y!
What god can com-pare to our great God?

You are the God who does a-mazing things;
you have re-vealed your strength a-mong the na-tions.
You de-livered your people by your strength
the children of Ja-cob and Jo-seph.

The waters saw you, O God,
the waters saw you and trem-bled.
Yes, the depths of/the sea shook with fear.
The clouds poured down rain; the skies thun-dered.

Yes, your arrows flashed a-bout.
Your thunder-ous voice was heard in/the wind;
the lightning bolts lit up the world;
the earth trem-bled and shook.

You walked through the sea;
you passed through the surging waters, but left no foot-print.
You led your people like a flock of sheep,
by the hand of Mo-ses and Aa-ron.

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 Colossians 1:9-14


For this reason, since the day we heard it, we have not ceased praying for you and asking that you may be filled with the knowledge of God's will in all spiritual wisdom and understanding, so that you may lead lives worthy of the Lord, fully pleasing to him, as you bear fruit in every good work and as you grow in the knowledge of God. May you be made strong with all the strength that comes from his glorious power, and may you be prepared to endure everything with patience, while joyfully

giving thanks to the Father, who has enabled you to share in the inheritance of the saints in the light. He has rescued us from the power of darkness and transferred us into the kingdom of his beloved Son, in whom we have redemption, the forgiveness of sins.

Here ends the reading.
Thanks be to God!



Monday - Third Song of Isaiah


Tenor     Soprano     Response     Cantor     Bass     Alto     PDF     All     



A-rise, shine, for your light has come,
and the glory of/the Lord has dawned up-on you.
For/be-hold, darkness covers the land;
deep gloom en-shrouds the peo-ples.

But over you the Lord will rise,
and his glory will/ap-pear up-on you.
Nations will stream to your light,
and kings to/the brightness of your dawn-ing.

Your gates will always be o-pen;
by day or night they will never be shut.
They will call you, The City of/the Lord,
The Zion of/the Holy One of Is-ra-el.

Vio-lence will/no more be heard in your land,
ruin or de-struction with-in your bor-ders.
You will call your walls, Sal-va-tion,
and all your por-tals, Praise.

The sun will/no more be your light by day;
by night you will/not need the brightness of/the moon.
The Lord will be your ever-last-ing light,
and your God will be your glo-ry.

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.


A reading from Matthew 13:1-16


That same day Jesus went out of the house and sat beside the sea. Such great crowds gathered around him that he got into a boat and sat there, while the whole crowd stood on the beach. And he told them many things in parables, saying: "Listen! A sower went out to sow. And as he sowed, some seeds fell on the path, and the birds came and ate them up. Other seeds fell on rocky ground, where they did not have much soil, and they sprang up quickly, since they had no depth of soil. But when the sun rose, they were scorched; and since they had no root, they withered away. Other seeds fell among thorns, and the thorns grew up and choked them. Other seeds fell on good soil and brought forth grain, some a hundredfold, some sixty, some thirty. Let anyone with ears listen!" Then the disciples came and asked him, "Why do you speak to them in parables?" He answered, "To you it has been given to know the secrets of the kingdom of heaven, but to them it has not been given. For to those who have, more will be given, and they will have an abundance; but from those who have nothing, even what they have will be taken away. The reason I speak to them in parables is that 'seeing they do not perceive, and hearing they do not listen, nor do they understand.' With them indeed is fulfilled the prophecy of Isaiah that says: 'You will indeed listen, but never understand, and you will indeed look, but never perceive. For this people's heart has grown dull, and their ears are hard of hearing, and they have shut their eyes; so that they might not look with their eyes, and listen with their ears, and understand with their heart and turn— and I would heal them.' But blessed are your eyes, for they see, and your ears, for they hear.

Here ends the reading.
Thanks be to God!

Oración Vespertina Diaria - 20 mayo 2022



¡Aleluya! Cristo ha resucitado

¡Es verdad! El Señor ha resucitado. ¡Aleluya! 

Confesión de Pecado

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.







Salmo 106:19-48
En Horeb hizo Israel un becerro, *
y adoró una imagen de metal fundido.
Así cambiaron su Gloria *
por la imagen de un buey que come hierba.
Se olvidaron de Dios su Salvador, *
que había hecho prodigios en Egipto,
Maravillas en el país de Cam, *
cosas temibles junto al Mar Rojo. Determinó Dios destruirlos,
de no haberse interpuesto Moisés, su escogido, *
a fin de apartar su indignación, para que no los consumiese.
Despreciaron la tierra deseable, *
y no creyeron en sus promesas.
Murmuraron en sus tiendas, *
y no escucharon la voz del Señor.
Por tanto alzó la mano contra ellos, *
para abatirlos en el desierto,
Para arrojar su estirpe entre las naciones, *
y esparcirlos por todos los pueblos.
Se unieron a Baal-Peor, *
y comieron los sacrificios ofrecidos a los muertos.
Provocaron la ira de Dios con sus acciones, *
y entre ellos brotó una plaga.
Entonces se levantó Finees e intercedió, *
y se acabó la plaga.
Esto le fue contado por rectitud, *
de generación en generación para siempre.
También le enojaron junto a las aguas de Meribá, *
de modo que castigó a Moisés por causa de ellos;
Porque de tal manera amargaron su espíritu, *
que habló palabras imprudentes con sus labios.
No exterminaron a los pueblos, *
como el Señor les había mandado;
Sino que se mezclaron con los paganos, *
y aprendieron sus costumbres idólatras;
Así adoraron sus ídolos, *
que se convirtieron en trampa para ellos.
Ofrecieron sus hijos y sus hijas *
en sacrificio a los demonios. 
Derramaron sangre inocente, la sangre de sus hijos y de sus hijas, *
que ofrecieron a los ídolos de Canaán, y la tierra fue contaminada de sangre.
Así se mancharon con sus acciones, *
y se prostituyeron con sus hechos malos.
Por tanto, se encendió la ira del Señor sobre su pueblo, *
y aborreció su heredad.
Los entregó en poder de los paganos, *
y los que les odiaban se enseñorearon de ellos.
Sus enemigos los oprimieron, *
y fueron humillados bajo su mano. ¡Cuántas veces los libró!
Mas ellos se rebelaron por su propio consejo, *
y fueron abatidos por su iniquidad.
Con todo, él miró su angustia *
al escuchar sus lamentaciones.
Se acordó de su pacto con ellos, *
y se aplacó conforme a su gran misericordia.
Hizo que les tuvieran compasión *
los que les tenían cautivos.
Sálvanos, oh Señor nuestro Dios, y recógenos de entre las naciones, *
para que demos gracias a tu santo Nombre
y nos gloriemos en tus alabanzas.
¡Bendito el Señor Dios de Israel, desde siempre y para siempre! *
Y diga todo el pueblo: "Amén".  ¡Aleluya!

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 San Mateo 7:1-12
No juzguen a los demás y no serán juzgados ustedes. Porque de la misma manera que ustedes juzguen, así serán juzgados, y la misma medida que ustedes usen para los demás, será usada para ustedes. ¿Qué pasa? Ves la pelusa en el ojo de tu hermano, ¿y no te das cuenta del tronco que hay en el tuyo? ¿Y dices a tu hermano: Déjame sacarte esa pelusa del ojo, teniendo tú un tronco en el tuyo? Hipócrita, saca primero el tronco que tienes en tu ojo y así verás mejor para sacar la pelusa del ojo de tu hermano. No den lo que es santo a los perros, ni echen sus perlas a los cerdos, pues podrían pisotearlas y después se volverían contra ustedes para destrozarlos. Pidan y se les dará; busquen y hallarán; llamen y se les abrirá la puerta. Porque el que pide, recibe; el que busca, encuentra; y se abrirá la puerta al que llama. ¿Acaso alguno de ustedes daría a su hijo una piedra cuando le pide pan? ¿O le daría una culebra cuando le pide un pescado? Pues si ustedes, que son malos, saben dar cosas buenas a sus hijos, ¡con cuánta mayor razón el Padre de ustedes, que está en el Cielo, dará cosas buenas a los que se las pidan! Todo lo que ustedes desearían de los demás, háganlo con ellos: ahí está toda la Ley y los Profetas.

Palabra del Señor.

Demos gracias a Dios.


Cántico de Simeón Nunc dimittis - San Lucas 2:29-32

Ahora despides, Señor, a tu siervo, *
conforme a tu palabra, en paz.
Porque mis ojos han visto a tu Salvador, *
a quien has presentado ante todos los pueblos:
Luz para alumbrar a las naciones, *
y gloria de tu pueblo Israel.


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.


Credo de los Apóstoles

Creo en Dios Padre todopoderoso,
creador del cielo y de la tierra.
Creo 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.

Creo 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.


Plegarias


El Señor sea con ustedes.

Y con tu espíritu.

Oremos.


Padre Nuestro

Te rogamos, Señor.

Que tus santos ángeles nos conduzcan por los senderos de paz y de benevolencia,

Te rogamos, Señor.

Que nos perdones y absuelvas de nuestros pecados y ofensas,

Te rogamos, Señor.

Señor Jesucristo, por tu muerte quitaste el aguijón de la muerte: Concede a tus siervos que caminemos de tal modo en la fe hacia el lugar a donde tú nos has precedido, que al fin durmamos apaciblemente en ti, y despertemos a tu semejanza; por amor de tu tierna misericordia. Amén.


Oh Dios, cuyo Hijo Jesús es el buen pastor de tu pueblo: Concede que, al escuchar su voz, reconozcamos a aquél que llama a cada uno de nosotros por su nombre, y le sigamos a donde nos guíe; quien contigo y el Espíritu Santo vive y reina, un solo Dios, por los siglos de los siglos. Amén.


Oh Dios, tú eres la vida de los que viven, la luz de los fieles, la fortaleza de los que trabajan, y el descanso de los muertos: Te damos gracias por las bendiciones del día que termina, y humildemente te suplicamos nos des tu protección durante la noche que comienza. Llévanos en seguridad hasta las horas del alba; por aquél que murió y resucitó por nosotros, tu Hijo nuestro Salvador Jesucristo. Amén.


Quédate con nosotros, Señor Jesús, ahora que la noche se acerca y ha pasado el día. Sé nuestro compañero en el 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.


Puede seguir intercesiones y acciones de gracias.

Oremos al Señor.

Señor, ten piedad.  o   Señor, te alabamos!

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.


Bendigamos al Señor.

Demos gracias a Dios.


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

Grace to you and peace from God our Fa-ther
and from/the Lord Je-sus Christ.
Worship the Lord in/the beauty of his holi-ness;
let/the whole earth trem-ble be-fore him.

Let my prayer be set forth/in your sight as in-cense,

I will bless the Lord who gives/me coun-sel;
my heart teaches me, night after night.

I have set/the Lord always be-fore me;

O Lord, make haste/to help us.

Psalm 74


Tenor     Soprano     Response     Cantor     Bass     Alto     PDF     All     



Why, O God, have you perma-nently re-jected us?
Why does your anger burn/a-gainst the sheep of your pas-ture?
Re-member your peo-ple
whom you ac-quired in an-cient times,

whom you res-cued
so they could be your very own na-tion,
as well as Mount Zi-on,
where you dwell for-ev-er!

Hurry to/the perma-nent ruin,
and to all the damage the ene-my has done to/the tem-ple!
Your ene-mies roar in/the middle of your sanctu-ar-y;
they set up their battle flags.

They in-vade like lumber-jacks
swinging their axes in a thick for-est.
And now they are tearing down all its en-grav-ings
with ax-es and crow-bars.

They set your sanctu-ary on fire;
they dese-crate your dwell-ing place
by knocking it to/the ground.
They say to them-selves, We will op-press all of them.

They burn down all the places
where people worship God in/the land.
We do not see any signs of God's pres-ence;
there are no longer any proph-ets

And we have no one
to tell us how long this will last.
How long, O God, will the adver-sary hurl in-sults?
Will the ene-my blas-pheme your name for-ev-er?

Why do you re-main in-ac-tive?
Inter-vene and de-stroy him!
But God has been my king from an-cient times,
per-forming acts of de-liver-ance on/the earth.

You de-stroyed the sea by your strength;
you shattered the heads of/the sea monster in/the wat-er.
You crushed the heads of Le-via-than;
you fed him to/the people who live a-long the coast.

You broke open the spring and the stream;
you dried up per-petual-ly flowing riv-ers.
You es-tablished the cycle of day and night;
you put the moon and sun in place.

You set up all the bounda-ries of/the earth;
you cre-ated the cycle of summer and win-ter.
Re-member how the ene-my hurls in-sults, O Lord,
and how a foolish nation blas-phemes your name!

Do not hand the life of your dove
over to a wild ani-mal!
Do not con-tinue to disre-gard the lives
of your op-pressed peo-ple!

Re-member your cove-nant prom-ise,
for the dark regions of/the earth
are full of places where vio-lence rules.
Do not let the af-flicted be turned back in shame!

Let the op-pressed and poor praise your name!
Rise up, O God! De-fend your hon-or!
Re-member how fools in-sult you all day long!
Do not disre-gard what your ene-mies say,

Nor the un-ceasing shouts
of those who de-fy you.
Rise up, O God!
De-fend your hon-or! A-men.

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 2 Thessalonians 1:1-12


Paul, Silvanus, and Timothy, To the church of the Thessalonians in God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ: Grace to you and peace from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ. We must always give thanks to God for you, brothers and sisters, as is right, because your faith is growing abundantly, and the love of everyone of you for one another is increasing. Therefore we ourselves boast of you among the churches of God for your steadfastness and faith during all your persecutions and the afflictions that you are enduring.

This is evidence of the righteous judgment of God, and is intended to make you worthy of the kingdom of God, for which you are also suffering. For it is indeed just of God to repay with affliction those who afflict you, and to give relief to the afflicted as well as to us, when the Lord Jesus is revealed from heaven with his mighty angels in flaming fire, inflicting vengeance on those who do not know God and on those who do not obey the gospel of our Lord Jesus. These will suffer the punishment of eternal destruction, separated from the presence of the Lord and from the glory of his might, when he comes to be glorified by his saints and to be marveled at on that day among all who have believed, because our testimony to you was believed.

To this end we always pray for you, asking that our God will make you worthy of his call and will fulfill by his power every good resolve and work of faith, so that the name of our Lord Jesus may be glorified in you, and you in him, according to the grace of our God and the Lord Jesus Christ.

Here ends the reading.
Thanks be to God!



Thursday - Song of Zechariah


Tenor     Soprano     Response     Cantor     Bass     Alto     PDF     All     



Blessed be the Lord, the God of Isra-el;
he has come/to his people and set them free.
He has raised up for us a mighty sav-ior,
born of/the house of his servant Da-vid.

Through his holy prophets he promised of old,
that he would save/us from our ene-mies,
from/the hands of all who hate us.
He promised to show mercy to our fath-ers

and to re-member his holy cov-e-nant.
This was/the oath he swore to our father A-bra-ham,
to set us free from/the hands of our ene-mies,
Free to worship him without fear,

holy and righteous in his sight
all the days of our life.
And you, my child, shall be called
the proph-et of/the Most High,

for you will go/be-fore the Lord to/pre-pare his way,
To give his people knowledge of sal-va-tion
by the for-giveness of their sins.
In/the tender com-passion of our God

the dawn from/on high shall break up-on us,
To shine on those/who dwell in dark-ness
and in/the shadow of death,
and/to guide our feet into the way of peace.

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.


A reading from Matthew 6:25-34


"Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or what you will drink, or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothing? Look at the birds of the air; they neither sow nor reap nor gather into barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not of more value than they? And can any of you by worrying add a single hour to your span of life? And why do you worry about clothing? Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow; they neither toil nor spin, yet I tell you, even Solomon in all his glory was not clothed like one of these. But if God so clothes the grass of the field, which is alive today and tomorrow is thrown into the oven, will he not much more clothe you—you of little faith? Therefore do not worry, saying, 'What will we eat?' or 'What will we drink?' or 'What will we wear?' For it is the Gentiles who strive for all these things; and indeed your heavenly Father knows that you need all these things. But strive first for the kingdom of God and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well. "So do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will bring worries of its own. Today's trouble is enough for today.

Here ends the reading.
Thanks be to God!



Thursday - Song to the Lamb


Tenor     Soprano     Response     Cantor     Bass     Alto     PDF     All     



Splendor and honor and king-ly power
are yours by right, O Lord our God,
For you cre-ated every-thing that is,
and by your will they were cre-ated and have their be-ing;

And yours by right, O Lamb that was slain,
for with your blood you have re-deemed for God,
From eve-ry fami-ly, lan-guage, people, and na-tion,
a kingdom of priests to serve our God.

And so, to him who sits up-on/the throne,
and to Je-sus Christ the Lamb,
Be worship and praise, do-min-ion and splen-dor,
for-ever and for-ever-more.

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.

Our Father, who art in heaven,
hallowed be thy name.

Amen.

Eternal God, in whose perfect kingdom no sword is drawn but the sword of righteousness, no strength known but the strength of love: So mightily spread abroad your Spirit, that all peoples may be gathered under the banner of the Prince of Peace, as children of one Father; to whom be dominion and glory, now and for ever. Amen.
