Genesis 22: 1-18

It happened some time later that God put Abraham to the test. ‘Abraham, Abraham!’ he called. ‘Here I am,’ he replied. God said, ‘Take your son, your only son, your beloved Isaac, and go to the land of Moriah, where you are to offer him as a burnt offering on one of the mountains which I shall point out to you.’ 

    Early next morning Abraham saddled his donkey and took with him two of his servants and his son Isaac. He chopped wood for the burnt offering and started on his journey to the place which God had indicated to him. On the third day Abraham looked up and saw the place in the distance. Then Abraham said to his servants, ‘Stay here with the donkey. The boy and I are going over there; we shall worship and then come back to you.’ 

    Abraham took the wood for the burnt offering, loaded it on Isaac, and carried in his own hands the fire and the knife. Then the two of them set out together. Isaac spoke to his father Abraham. ‘Father?’ he said. ‘Yes, my son,’ he replied. ‘Look,’ he said, ‘here are the fire and the wood, but where is the lamb for the burnt offering?’ Abraham replied, ‘My son, God himself will provide the lamb for the burnt offering.’ And the two of them went on together. 

    When they arrived at the place which God had indicated to him, Abraham built an altar there, and arranged the wood. Then he bound his son and put him on the altar on top of the wood. Abraham stretched out his hand and took the knife to kill his son. 

    But the angel of Yahweh called to him from heaven. ‘Abraham, Abraham!’ he said. ‘Here I am,’ he replied. ‘Do not raise your hand against the boy,’ the angel said. ‘Do not harm him, for now I know you fear God. You have not refused me your own beloved son.’ Then looking up, Abraham saw a ram caught by its horns in a bush. Abraham took the ram and offered it as a burnt offering in place of his son. Abraham called this place ‘Yahweh provides’, and hence the saying today: ‘On the mountain Yahweh provides.’ 

    The angel of Yahweh called Abraham a second time from heaven. ‘I swear by my own self, Yahweh declares, that because you have done this, because you have not refused me your own beloved son, I will shower blessings on you and make your descendants as numerous as the stars of heaven and the grains of sand on the seashore. Your descendants will gain possession of the gates of their enemies. All nations on earth will bless themselves by your descendants, because you have obeyed my command.’ 

    Abraham went back to his servants, and together they set out for Beersheba, and Abraham settled in Beersheba.

Colossians 1: 15-20

He is the image of the unseen God, 
the first–born of all creation, 
for in him were created all things 
in heaven and on earth: 
everything visible 
    and everything invisible, 
thrones, ruling forces, 
    sovereignties, powers—
all things were created through him 
    and for him. 
He exists before all things 
and in him all things hold together, 
and he is the Head of the Body, 
that is, the Church. 

He is the Beginning, 
the first–born from the dead, 
so that he should be supreme in every way; 
because God wanted all fullness 
    to be found in him 
and through him 
    to reconcile all things to him, 
everything in heaven 
    and everything on earth, 
by making peace through his death 
    on the cross.

Messenger:         God is the beginning and the end.
                            God is our Creator.
                            Jesus is our King.
                            Jesus our Majesty.
                            Let us honor and love the Holy Name.

                            We call ourselves Christian.
                            We should reflect on the titles of Christ
                                if we are to be Christ-like.

                            Oh Light of Wisdom — Send your Spirit
                                that we may know Thee and have
                                the wisdom we need to always
                                walk in the truth.

                                May our hearts be quieted like a little
                                    child nuzzled at their mother's

                                May our joy be always in our hearts
                                    as we unite in great oneness
                                    with you.

Jesus speaks:     A man walked along a path and he was
                                blind. When people saw him they
                                wanted to help him — He didn't
                                want any help — he did not like
                                people explaining his surroundings
                                to him.

                            A man was deaf, his wife was blind they
                                could help each other, what she needed
                                to see, he could explain, what he
                                needed to hear she wrote to him.
                                They were, as it seemed, inseparable.
                                I have given many gifts to men to enjoy,
                                to use to promote My Kingdom.
                                Many try to live isolated lives when
                                I need them to work with others.

Messenger:         Oh God help us not to be blind to the help
                                you send our way. Help us to learn
                                to work together in love. Work as
                                a body, united in You.


Isaiah 61: 10 - 62: 5

I exult for joy in Yahweh, 
my soul rejoices in my God, 
for he has clothed me 
    in garments of salvation, 
he has wrapped me in a cloak 
    of saving justice, 
like a bridegroom wearing his garland, 
like a bride adorned in her jewels. 
For as the earth sends up its shoots 
and a garden makes seeds sprout, 
so Lord Yahweh makes saving justice 
    and praise 
spring up in the sight of all nations.

About Zion I will not be silent, 
about Jerusalem I shall not rest 
until saving justice dawns for her 
    like a bright light 
and her salvation like a blazing torch. 
The nations will then see 
    your saving justice, 
and all kings your glory, 
and you will be called a new name 
which Yahweh’s mouth will reveal. 
You will be a crown of splendour 
    in Yahweh’s hand, 
a princely diadem in the hand of your God. 
No more will you be known as ‘Forsaken’ 
or your country be known as ‘Desolation’; 
instead, you will be called 
    ‘My Delight is in her’ 
and your country ‘The Wedded’; 
for Yahweh will take delight in you 
and your country will have its wedding. 
Like a young man marrying a virgin, 
your rebuilder will wed you, 
and as the bridegroom rejoices in his bride, 
so will your God rejoice in you.


Deuteronomy 4: 39-40

    ‘Hence, grasp this today and meditate on it carefully: Yahweh is the true God, 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 after you may prosper and live long in the country that Yahweh your God is giving you for ever.’

                                hold back.

Messenger:         Let us always praise the name of Jesus


1 Corinthians 12: 3b-7, 12-13

and nobody is able to say, ‘Jesus is Lord’ except in the Holy Spirit.

There are many different gifts, but it is always the same Spirit; there are many different ways of serving, but it is always the same Lord. There are many different forms of activity, but in everybody it is the same God who is at work in them all. The particular manifestation of the Spirit granted to each one is to be used for the general good.

For as with the human body which is a unity although it has many parts—all the parts of the body, though many, still making up one single body—so it is with Christ. We were baptised into one body in a single Spirit, Jews as well as Greeks, slaves as well as free men, and we were all given the same Spirit to drink.


Romans 8: 8-17

and those who live by their natural inclinations can never be pleasing to God. You, however, live not by your natural inclinations, but by the Spirit, since the Spirit of God has made a home in you. Indeed, anyone who does not have the Spirit of Christ does not belong to him. But when Christ is in you, the body is dead because of sin but the spirit is alive because you have been justified; and if the Spirit of him who raised Jesus from the dead has made his home in you, then he who raised Christ Jesus from the dead will give life to your own mortal bodies through his Spirit living in you. 

    So then, my brothers, we have no obligation to human nature to be dominated by it. If you do live in that way, you are doomed to die; but if by the Spirit you put to death the habits originating in the body, you will have life.

All who are guided by the Spirit of God are sons of God; for what you received was not the spirit of slavery to bring you back into fear; you received the Spirit of adoption, enabling us to cry out, ‘Abba, Father!’ The Spirit himself joins with our spirit to bear witness that we are children of God. And if we are children, then we are heirs, heirs of God and joint–heirs with Christ, provided that we share his suffering, so as to share his glory.

John 14: 15-16, 23b-26

If you love me
    you will keep my commandments.
I shall ask the Father,
and he will give you another Paraclete
to be with you for ever,

Anyone who loves me will keep my word,
and my Father will love him, 
and we shall come to him
and make a home in him.
Anyone who does not love me
    does not keep my words.
And the word that you hear
     is not my own:
it is the word of the Father who sent me.
I have said these things to you
while still with you;
but the Paraclete, the Holy Spirit,
whom the Father will send in my name,
will teach you everything
and remind you of all I have said to you.

                            God is light and in Him there is 
                                no darkness

Messenger:         Jesus gives us Himself in the
                                Blessed Sacrament


1 Corinthians 11: 23-26

    For the tradition I received from the Lord and also handed on to you is that on the night he was betrayed, the Lord Jesus took some bread, and after he had given thanks, he broke it, and he said, ‘This is my body, which is for you; do this in remembrance of me.’ And in the same way, with the cup after supper, saying, ‘This cup is the new covenant in my blood. Whenever you drink it, do this as a memorial of me.’ Whenever you eat this bread, then, and drink this cup, you are proclaiming the Lord’s death until he comes.


Psalm 116: 12-13

What return can I make to Yahweh for his generosity to me? I shall take up the cup of salvation and call on the name of Yahweh.


Galatians 5: 1, 13-18

Christ set us free, so that we should remain free. Stand firm, then, and do not let yourselves be fastened again to the yoke of slavery.

    After all, brothers, you were called to be free; do not use your freedom as an opening for self–indulgence, but be servants to one another in love, since the whole of the Law is summarised in the one commandment: You must love your neighbour as yourself. If you go snapping at one another and tearing one another to pieces, take care: you will be eaten up by one another.

    Instead, I tell you, be guided by the Spirit, and you will no longer yield to self–indulgence. The desires of self–indulgence are always in opposition to the Spirit, and the desires of the Spirit are in opposition to self–indulgence: they are opposites, one against the other; that is how you are prevented from doing the things that you want to. But when you are led by the Spirit, you are not under the Law.


Isaiah 66: 10-14c

Rejoice with Jerusalem, 
be glad for her, all you who love her! 
Rejoice, rejoice with her, 
all you who mourned her! 

So that you may be suckled and satisfied 
from her consoling breast, 
so that you may drink deep with delight 
from her generous nipple. 

For Yahweh says this: 
Look, I am going to send peace 
flowing over her like a river, 
and like a stream in spate 
the glory of the nations. 

You will be suckled, carried on her hip 
and fondled in her lap. 
As a mother comforts a child, 
so I shall comfort you; 
you will be comforted in Jerusalem. 

At the sight your heart will rejoice, 
and your limbs regain vigour 
    like the grass. 
To his servants 
    Yahweh will reveal his hand, 
but to his enemies his fury.

Daniel 7: 9-10, 13-14

While I was watching, 
thrones were set in place 
and one most venerable took his seat. 
His robe was white as snow, 
the hair of his head as pure as wool. 
His throne was a blaze of flames, 
its wheels were a burning fire. 
A stream of fire poured out, 
issuing from his presence. 
A thousand thousand waited on him, 
ten thousand times ten thousand 
    stood before him. 
The court was in session 
and the books lay open.

I was gazing into the visions of the night, 
when I saw, 
    coming on the clouds of heaven, 
as it were a son of man. 
He came to the One most venerable 
and was led into his presence. 
On him was conferred rule, 
honour and kingship, 
and all peoples, nations and languages 
    became his servants. 
His rule is an everlasting rule 
which will never pass away, 
and his kingship will never come to an end.

Mark 9: 2-10

Six days later, Jesus took with him Peter and James and John and led them up a high mountain on their own by themselves. There in their presence he was transfigured: his clothes became brilliantly white, whiter than any earthly bleacher could make them. Elijah appeared to them with Moses; and they were talking to Jesus. Then Peter spoke to Jesus, ‘Rabbi,’ he said, ‘it is wonderful for us to be here; so let us make three shelters, one for you, one for Moses and one for Elijah.’ He did not know what to say; they were so frightened. And a cloud came, covering them in shadow; and from the cloud there came a voice, ‘This is my Son, the Beloved. Listen to him.’ Then suddenly, when they looked round, they saw no one with them any more but only Jesus.

As they were coming down from the mountain he warned them to tell no one what they had seen, until after the Son of man had risen from the dead. They observed the warning faithfully, though among themselves they discussed what ‘rising from the dead’ could mean.
