Tuesday Morning Week of Cana Sunday




Glory be to the Father and to the Son and to the Holy Spirit, as we begin and until we conclude.
May mercy and compassion be poured forth upon us
in this world and the next.
O Lord, our God, to you be glory for ever. Amen.

Lord God,
you are the Light who shone upon those who were in darkness, and they were illumined,
upon the blind, and they recovered their sight.
Let your face shine upon us, and we shall be illumined by you, walk in the way of your gospel teachings
and glorify the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit,
now and for ever. Amen.

Peace be with the Church and her children.

Glory to God in the highest,
and peace on earth and good will to all.

Praise the Lord all you nations,
glorify him all you peoples!

For steadfast is his mercy towards us,
and the truth of the Lord endures for ever.

Glory be to the Father and to the Son and to the Holy Spirit, now and for ever.
and peace on earth and good will to all.

Lord, have mercy on us and save us.
O Lord,
grant us purity of heart and mind and
draw us closer to you during this blessed Lent.
By our fast may we abstain, not only from food and drink, but from jealousy, hatred, pride and egotism.
Then we shall glorify you, as is fitting,
and praise you,
now and for ever. Amen.

O LORD, who shall sojourn in your tent?
Who shall dwell on your holy mountain?

Psalm 15
O LORD, who shall sojourn in your tent?
Who shall dwell on your holy mountain?

He who walks blamelessly and does justice;
who thinks the truth in his heart and slanders
no one with his tongue;

Who harms not his fellow man,
nor takes up a reproach against his neighbor;

By whom the reprobate is despised,
while he honors those who fear the LORD;

Who, though it be to his loss, changes not his pledged word; who lends not his money at usury and accepts no bribe against the innocent.

He who does these things
shall never be disturbed.

Glory be to the Father and to the Son and to the Holy Spirit, now and for ever. Amen.

O LORD, who shall sojourn in your tent?
Who shall dwell on your holy mountain?

Blessed are you, O Church, garden of the Beloved!
From a mustard seed, the smallest of all seeds, you have grown.
Your roots are in firm soil, sheltered from the winds; In your branches are the martyrs, they are a display of blood shed for the faith.
The birds quench their thirst at this marvel.
Psalms and prophecies fill your vast space.
You are the land of the Spirit, the meeting place of the nations.
Blessed are you, dwelling place of the guest, neighbor of the One who is near.

Glory be to you, Word of God,
who took on our human nature to save us and give us life.
By your fasting, you wish to teach us the way of sacrifice and renouncement.
We ask you, this morning, to guide us in your footsteps, and to shine your light upon us, O Christ, the Light from Light.
Then we shall follow you where you go, and give glory to the living Trinity,
now and for ever. Amen.

The Light of the just and joy of the upright is Christ Jesus, our Lord, Begotten of the Father, he manifested himself to us.
He came to rescue us from darkness and to fill us with the radiance of his light.

Day is dawning upon us; the power of darkness is fading away.
From the true Light there arises for us the light which illumines our darkened eyes.

His glory shines upon the world and enlightens the very depths of the abyss.
Death is annihilated, night has vanished, and the gates of Sheol are broken.

Creatures lying in darkness from ancient times are clothed in light.
The dead arise from the dust and sing because they have a Savior.

He brings salvation and grants us life.
He ascends to his Father on high.
He will return in glorious splendor and shed his light on those gazing upon him.

Our King comes in majestic glory,
Let us light our lamps and go forth to meet him.
Let us find our joy in him, for he has found joy in us.
He will indeed rejoice us with his marvelous light.

Let us glorify the majesty of the Son and give thanks to the almighty Father, who,
in an outpouring of love, sent him to us, to fill us with hope and salvation.

When he manifests himself, the saints awaiting him in weariness and sorrow, will go forth to meet him with lighted lamps.
The angels and guardians of heaven will rejoice in the glory of the just and upright people of the earth;
Together, crowned with victory, they will sing hymns and psalms.

Stand up then and be ready!
Give thanks to our King and Savior, who will come in great glory to gladden us with his marvelous light in his kingdom.

Glory be to the Father and to the Son and to the Holy Spirit, now and for ever. Amen.

At the end of time, when the combat will end,
You will come in glory for the final gathering of the bridal party; You will revive the dead who are sleeping, the scattered and the corrupt;
You will judge your servants with love – this is the happiness of paradise.
What has not occurred to the human heart and what the ear has not heard,
You have prepared as a reward for the combatants, at the fullness of time.

Lord, have mercy on us and save us.
purify our thoughts and our bodies, and sanctify our souls, that we may praise and glorify you during this holy Lent.
Increase faith, hope and charity in our hearts and we shall raise three-fold praise to the Holy Trinity,
Father, Son and Holy Spirit, one holy God,
to whom be glory, for ever. Amen.

Psalm 148

Praise the LORD from the heavens,
praise him in the heights;

Praise him, all you his angels,
praise him, all you his hosts.

Praise him, sun and moon;
praise him, all you shining stars.

Praise him, you highest heavens,
and you waters above the heavens.

Let them praise the name of the LORD,
for he commanded and they were created;

He established them forever and ever;
he gave them a duty which shall not pass away.

Praise the LORD from the earth;
you sea monsters and all depths;

Fire and hail, snow and mist,
storm winds that fulfill his word;

You mountains and all you hills,
you fruit trees and all you cedars;

You wild beasts and all tame animals,
you creeping things and you winged fowl.

Let the kings of the earth and all peoples,
the princes and all the judges of the earth,

Young men too, and maidens,
old men and boys,

Praise the name of the LORD,
for his name alone is exalted;

His majesty is above earth and heaven,
and he has lifted up the horn of his people.

Be this his praise from all his faithful ones,
from the children of Israel, the people close to him.


Psalm 149: 1-6

Sing to the LORD a new song
of praise in the assembly of the faithful.

Let Israel be glad in their maker,
let the children of Zion rejoice in their king.

Let them praise his name in the festive dance,
let them sing praise to him with timbrel and harp.

For the LORD loves his people,
and he adorns the lowly with victory.

Let the faithful exult in glory;
let them sing for joy upon their couches;

Let the high praises of God be in their throats.


Psalm 150

Praise the LORD in his sanctuary,
praise him in the firmament of his strength.

Praise him for his mighty deeds,
praise him for his sovereign majesty.

Praise him with the blast of the trumpet,
praise him with lyre and harp.

Praise him with timbrel and dance,
praise him with strings and pipe.

Praise him with sounding cymbals,
praise him with clanging cymbals.

Let everything that has breath
praise the LORD!


Psalm 117

Praise the LORD, all you nations;
glorify him, all you peoples!

For steadfast is his mercy toward us,
and the truth of the Lord endures for ever.

Glory be to the Father and to the Son and to the Holy Spirit, now and for ever. Amen.


Praise, glory and honor to the great Lord of all, whom all creatures adore;
the Good One, source of infinite goodness;
the merciful One who inclines his ears to the requests and prayers of his servants.
To the Good One is due glory and honor on this morning, and all the days of our lives,
now and for ever. Amen.

Christ our God, eternal Son and Light,
you wished to dwell among us to teach us your divine
commandments and gospel precepts.
You left us the law of fasting and prayer which leads us to salvation.
With joy and pleasure we welcome this time of penance, crying:

Come in peace, blessed Lent, which cleans bodies and
purifies souls;
Come in peace, blessed Lent, which makes us return to our spiritual condition of old,
before we had become material, attached to the earth and its passions.
And now we implore you, Christ our God, to grant us a holy and pure fast.
May we be strangers to every hatred and quarrel and full of pure Christian love.
Strengthen us to persevere in justice, help us to perfect our lives, adorned with evangelical virtues;
may we work for others and their happiness, and reject all egotism and human passions.
O Lord, remember in your kingdom all those who rest in your hope and have believed in your mercy,
through the prayers of your holy Mother, your apostles, martyrs and the just.
We shall give glory and praise to you, your Father and Holy Spirit, now and for ever. Amen.

Prophets and messengers fasted, and drew closer to God. Our Lord fasted and saved the Church, giving his body as a food and his blood as a drink. Come, let us offer glory to him.

May Christ who saved us by his fasting accept our fast and our prayers. May he adorn our souls with justice and holiness and grant us triumph over evil and sin.

O Lord,
in your mercy accept this incense (prayer) which we offer you.
Grant peace to your Church, pardon and blessings to your flock, Remember our dead in your kingdom,
and we shall glorify you, your Father and the Holy Spirit, now and for ever. Amen.

Lord, accept our fast and our prayer, as you accepted the fast of our ancestors.

Lord, help your servants to confess you by fasting and prayer, May your just ones praise you with all those who love you.

Glory to the One who said to the repentant: Ask, and you will receive, knock and it will be opened to you.

A Reading from the Prophet Jeremiah
Jeremiah 2: 1-13
This word of the LORD came to me: Go, cry out this message for Jerusalem to hear! I remember the devotion of your youth, how you loved me as a bride, Following me in the desert, in a land unsown. Sacred to the LORD was Israel, the first fruits of his harvest; Should anyone presume to partake of them, evil would befall him, says the LORD.
Listen to the word of the LORD, O house of Jacob! All you clans of the house of Israel, thus says the LORD: What fault did your fathers find in me that they withdrew from me, Went after empty idols, and became empty themselves? They did not ask, “Where is the LORD who brought us up from the land of Egypt, Who led us through the desert, through a land of wastes and gullies, Through a land of drought and darkness, through a land which no one crosses, where no man dwells?” When I brought you into the garden land to eat its goodly fruits, You entered and defiled my land, you made my heritage loathsome. The priests asked not, “Where is the LORD?” Those who dealt with the law knew me not: the shepherds rebelled against me. The prophets prophesied by Baal, and went after useless idols. Therefore will I yet accuse you, says the LORD, and even your children’s children I will accuse. Pass over to the coast of the Kittim and see, send to Kedar and carefully inquire: Where has the like of this been done? Does any other nation change its gods? — yet they are not gods at all! But my people have changed their glory for useless things.

Be amazed at this, O heavens, and shudder with sheer horror, says the LORD. Two evils have my people done: they have forsaken me, the source of living waters; They have dug themselves cisterns, broken cisterns, that hold no water.

Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace and joy filled hope to all.
We praise you, we adore you, we glorify you,
we give you thanks for your great glory,
Lord and Creator, King of heaven, God the Father almighty, Lord God, only Son, Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit.
Lord God, Lamb of God, Son and Word of the Father,
you take away the sin of the world, have mercy on us; you take away the sin of the world, hear us and receive our prayer.
You are seated in glory at the right hand of your Father, forgive us and have mercy on us;
For you alone are holy,
you alone are the Lord, Jesus Christ,
with the Holy Spirit, in the glory of God the Father.
At all times, and all the days of our lives, we worship you and praise your holy and blessed name,
which is and has been from age to age.
Blessed are you, Lord almighty, God of our fathers.
May your name be glorified, praised and exalted for ever.

To you be glory, praise an exaltation, God of all,
Father of truth, with the only Son and the living and Holy Spirit, now and for ever. Amen.

O God,
you are before all ages and exist from age to age;
you are resplendent and glorified in unsearchable light; through your word, you bring forth light and give us a new day.
O radiant Day and source of all light,
we glorify you, adore you and offer you praise night and day; accept our praise and answer our prayer.
Send us your abundant blessings, through the mercy of your Christ.
To him, with you and the Holy Spirit,
be glory, honor and power,
now and for ever. Amen.
