                 Entrance Antiphon 


P.  This is the day the Lord has made.

C.  Let us rejoice and be glad.  


P.  I will go up to the altar of God.

C.  To God Who gives joy to my youth.


P.  Send forth, oh God, Your light and Your truth.

     They have led me and brought me

     unto Your Holy Hill, and into Your Tabernacles.

C.  And I will go up to the altar of God,

      to God Who gives joy to my youth.


P.  In the Name of the Father,+

     and of the Son,

     and of the Holy Spirit.

C.  Amen.  




P.  All Encompassing Weaver,

     Whose fingers ceaselessly weave

     the fabric of the Universe,

     send forth Your holy and beloved angels,

     to guard, encourage, protect, visit, and defend

     all who dwell within this house.


     In Your strength, O Lord,

     do we command all adverse powers 

     to wither into nothingness,

     that they shall not abide,

     and that our temples within 

     and our temples without

     may emerge as strong, pure vessels

     to contain the eternal Mystery 

     as it unfolds on earth.


C.  Amen.


             Lighting of the Candles


P.  I will kindle my fire this morning

     in presence of the holy angels of heaven,

     in presence of Raphael, Lord of the Air,

     in presence of Michael, Lord of Fire, 

     in presence of Gabriel, Lord of the Waters,

     and in presence of Uriel, Lord of the Earth,


     without malice, without jealousy,

     without envy, without fear,

     without terror of anyone under the sun.


P.  O God, kindle Thou in my heart within

&  a flame of love to my neighbor,

C. to my foe, to my friend, to my kindred and all,

     to the brave, to the knave, to the thrall.

     The blessing of heaven be upon us, 

     from the lowliest creature that liveth

     to the Name that is highest of all.

P.  My brothers and sisters,

     to prepare ourselves 

     to celebrate the sacred mysteries,

     let us humbly make our confession before God.  


P.  Create in me a clean heart, O Forgiving Love:

&  and renew a right spirit within me.  

C. Here is my body: I cast it down before You.

     Forgive its imperfections with Your perfection;

     make me whole.

     with Your bright Wisdom.

     Here is my heart: it is Yours only.

     Do with me as You will.

     Forgive me.

     the joy of Your salvation,

     that I may awake in Your likeness, 

     and be satisfied.

     Through Christ our Lord.  Amen.  


P.  May almighty God have mercy on us (+),

     forgive us our sins,

     and bring us to everlasting life.

     You are seated at the right hand of the Father:

     receive our prayer.

     in the glory of God the Father.  Amen.




P.  The Lord be with you.


C.  And also with you.  


P.  Let us pray.

     O God the Giver of all gifts,

     we praise You, the source of all we have and are.

     You guard us under the shadow of Your wings

     and search into the depths of our hearts.

     Your light is strong.  Your love is near.


     Remove the blindness that cannot know You

     and relieve the fear 

     that would hide us from Your sight.

     Touched by Your hand, our world is holy.

     Open our eyes to see Your hand at work

     in the splendor of creation

     and the beauty of human life.

     Draw us beyond the limits 

     which this world imposes,

     to the life where Your Spirit 

     makes all life complete.

     We ask this 

     through our Lord the Christ, Your Son,

     Who lives and reigns with You and the Holy Spirit,

     One God, for ever and ever.


C.  Amen.


               LITURGY OF THE WORD 


                         FIRST READING


R1. The First Reading is from the book of Leviticus, Chapter 19.

The LORD spoke to Moses, saying:
Speak to all the congregation of the people of Israel and say to Pthem: You shall be holy, for I the LORD your God am holy.
You shall not render an unjust judgment; you shall not be partial to the poor or defer to the great: with justice you shall judge your neighbor.
You shall not go around as a slanderer among your people, and you shall not profit by the blood of your neighbor: I am the LORD.
You shall not hate in your heart anyone of your kin; you shall reprove your neighbor, or you will incur guilt yourself.
You shall not take vengeance or bear a grudge against any of your people, but you shall love your neighbor as yourself: I am the LORD.


     This is the Word of the Lord.

C.  Thanks be to God.




1  Happy are they who have not walked in the counsel of the wicked, *

     nor lingered in the way of sinners, 

     nor sat in the seats of the scornful!


2  Their delight is in the law of the LORD, *

    and they meditate on his law day and night.


3  They are like trees planted by streams of water, bearing fruit in due season, with leaves that do not wither; *

     everything they do shall prosper.


4  It is not so with the wicked; * 

    they are like chaff which the wind blows away.


5  Therefore the wicked shall not stand upright when judgment comes, *

     nor the sinner in the council of the righteous.


6  For the LORD knows the way of the righteous, *

    but the way of the wicked is doomed.


                       SECOND READING

R2. Our Second Reading this morning is taken from Paul’s first letter to the Thessalonians. 

You yourselves know, brothers and sisters, that our coming to you was not in vain, but though we had already suffered and been shamefully mistreated at Philippi, as you know, we had courage in our God to declare to you the gospel of God in spite of great opposition.
For our appeal does not spring from deceit or impure motives or trickery, but just as we have been approved by God to be entrusted with the message of the gospel, even so we speak, not to please mortals, but to please God who tests our hearts.
As you know and as God is our witness, we never came with words of flattery or with a pretext for greed;
nor did we seek praise from mortals, whether from you or from others, though we might have made demands as apostles of Christ. But we were gentle among you, like a nurse tenderly caring for her own children.
So deeply do we care for you that we are determined to share with you not only the gospel of God but also our own selves, because you have become very dear to us.


     This is the Word of the Lord.

C.  Thanks be to God.




P.  Whoso loves Wisdom loves life.  

C.  And they that seek Her early 

      shall be filled with joy.  

P.  Teach me, O Lord, the way of Your statutes.  

C.  And I shall keep it unto the end.

P.  Give me understanding 

     and I shall keep Your law.

C.  Yea, I shall keep it with my whole heart.  

                              GOSPEL READING

[If possible, the quarter Lights escort the Gospel and Reader into the midst of the Congregation for the reading.]


R3. The Lord be with you.

C.  And also with you.  


R3. A reading from the Holy Gospel

    according to Matthew, Chapter 2, verses 34 - 46.

C.  Glory (+) be to You (+), O Lord (+).


When the Pharisees heard that he had silenced the Sadducees, they gathered together, and one of them, a lawyer, asked him a question to test him.

"Teacher, which commandment in the law is the greatest?"

He said to him, "'You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your mind.'

This is the greatest and first commandment.

And a second is like it: 'You shall love your neighbor as yourself.'

On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets."

Now while the Pharisees were gathered together, Jesus asked them this question:

“What do you think of the Messiah? Whose son is he?” 

They said to him, “The son of David.”

He said to them, “How is it then that David by the Spirit calls him Lord, saying, The Lord said to my Lord, Sit at my right hand, until I put your enemies under your feet.”

If David thus calls him Lord, how can he be his son?"

No one was able to give him an answer, nor from that day did anyone dare to ask him any more questions.


R3. (Raises up Bible) This is the Gospel of the Lord.

C.  Praise be to You, O Christ.

(Escorts and Reader return the candles and Bible to the Altar.) 







P.  My brothers and sisters,

     let us call to mind God's many blessings

     and ask Him to hear the prayers

     which He Himself inspires us to ask.


R4. For all of us gathered in this holy place

     in faith, reverence, and love of God,

     that we may offer an acceptable sacrifice,

     we pray to the Lord:

C.  Lord, hear our prayer.


R4. For God's holy Church, 

     and the sheep of all His folds, 

     and especially those who lead them, 

     that the Lord guide and protect them,  

     we pray to the Lord . . . .

C.  Lord, hear our prayer.


     For all our brothers and sisters in need,

     that the Lord assist them,

     we pray to the Lord . . . .

C.  Lord, hear our prayer.


     For all the peoples of the world,

     that the Lord unite them in peace and harmony,

     we pray to the Lord . . . .

C.  Lord, hear our prayer.


     For those who serve us in public office,

     and for all those entrusted with the common good,

     we pray to the Lord . . . .

C.  Lord, hear our prayer.


     For those who walk alone 

     because they are different,

     that they may find others to share

     their journeys and dreams,

     we pray to the Lord . . . .

C.  Lord, hear our prayer.


     For the friendships begun or renewed

     in these past days, 

     that they may become sources of mutual growth

     and enrichment of our human spirits,

     we pray to the Lord . . . .

C.  Lord, hear our prayer.


    For this Celtic Christian Church, 

    and for all those dedicated to holy service, 

    that we may be faithful warriors of the Light, 

    serving God's will always and in all things, 

    we pray to the Lord . . . .


R4. [For any special intentions

       that you may have . . . . ]

C.  Lord, hear our prayer.


P.  Father, we come before You with faith and love,

     to praise Your goodness and acknowledge our needs.

     Be near to Your people and hear our prayers.  

     We have many needs that we cannot express,

     but You know them; 

     and we ask You to help us 

     through the sacrifice of Your Son the Christ,

     Who is Lord forever and ever.


  1. Amen.




P.  My brothers and sisters,

     we have confessed our sins

     and we have been forgiven.

     Jesus Christ, the King of Tenderness, binds us

     with a bond of love that cannot be broken.


     In the name of the Logos ever present, 

     ever saying: Peace I leave with you, 

     My Peace I give unto you;

     not as the world gives 

     do I give it unto you--


P.  The peace of the Lord be with you always.

C.  And also with you.


D.  Let us offer one another a sign of peace.


(The Peace is exchanged.)


P.  As a forgiven and reconciled people,

     let us offer ourselves and our gifts to God.





          [The bread and wine for Eucharist are brought to the altar]


P.  Dear Lord, we accept that of which,

     by the nature of this planet,

     we are composed;

     and in our great gratitude,

     we offer this bread unto You,

     as we likewise offer ourselves.


P.  Blessed are You, Lord, God of all creation.

     Through Your goodness 

     we have this bread to offer,

     which earth has given 

     and human hands have made.

     It will become for us the bread of life.


C.  Blessed be God forever.


P.  (As Your Spirit would move

     the heart of every being,

     now we move water within this wine,

     and they shall move as one.)


     We adore You, O God,

     and offer unto You this water and wine,

     as we offer that which gives us life.

     From You have we come,

     and unto You shall we return.


     Blessed are You, Lord, God of all creation.

     Through Your goodness

     we have this wine to offer,

     fruit of the vine

     and work of human hands.

     It will become our spiritual drink.


C.  Blessed be God forever.


P.  Lord God, we ask You to receive us

     and be pleased with the sacrifice we offer You 

     with humble and contrite hearts.




[P. Lord, wash away mine iniquity

     and cleanse me from my sin.]


P.  Pray, my brothers & sisters, 

     that our sacrifice may be acceptable

     to God, the almighty Father.


C.  May the Lord accept the sacrifice at your hands,

     for the praise and glory of His Name,

     for our good and the good of all His Church.


              PRAYER OVER THE GIFTS 


P.  Lord, by these holy gifts we offer,

     make holy those You gather together 

     in Your Name.

     May we who share this sacrament

     experience the life and power it promises

     and come to know Your presence.  

C.  Amen.




P.  The Lord be with you.

C.  And also with you.  


P.  Lift up your hearts.

C.  We lift them up to the Lord.


P.  Let us give thanks to the Lord our God.

C.  It is right to give our thanks and praise.




P.  O Holy One of Blessing,

     God of all being, 

     we do well always and everywhere

     to give You thanks.

     You have no need of our praise,

     yet our desire to thank You 

     is itself Your gift.

     Our prayer of thanksgiving

     adds nothing to Your greatness,

     but makes us grow in Your grace,

     through Your Son, the Christ.  


     You give us Your Holy Spirit,

     the Comforter,

     to help us always by Her power,

     so that with loving trust

     we may turn to You in all our troubles,

     and give You thanks in all our joys.  


     Source of life and goodness,

     You have created all things,

     to fill Your creatures with every blessing 

     and lead all to the joyful vision of Your Light.

     Countless hosts of angels

     stand before You to do Your will.  

     They look upon Your splendor

     and praise You, night and day.

     United with them,

     and in the name 

     of every creature under heaven,

     we too praise Your glory as we say/sing:




(Let us say together:)

P.  Holy, Holy, Holy Lord,

&   God of power and might, 

C.  heaven and earth are full of Your glory.

     Hosanna in the highest.

     Blessed is He 

     Who comes in the name of the Lord.  

     Hosanna in the highest.


                Eucharistic Prayer 

P.  Lord, You are holy indeed,

     the fountain of all holiness.

     As one family, we gather around Your table.


     Loving Creator, 

     we who have been redeemed by Your Son

     bring You these gifts of bread and wine,

     and ourselves as a living sacrifice.


     Let Your Spirit come upon these gifts

     to make them holy.

     Sanctify them,

     that they may become for us

     the Body (+) and Blood (+)

     of our Lord, Jesus Christ, 

     at Whose command we celebrate this Eucharist.  

    * (bell)


P.  Before He was given up to death,

     - a death He freely accepted,

     He took bread and gave You thanks, saying: 

Baruch atah Adonai eloheinu melech ha-alom 

ha-motzi lechem min ha-aretz.

Blessed are you Lord, God of all creation. Through your goodness you bring forth bread from the earth. 


     He broke the bread,

     gave it to His disciples, and said:

     Take this, all of you, and eat it:



     which will be given up for you.     * * * *    *


P.  When supper was ended, He took the cup.

     Again He gave You thanks and praise saying,

Baruch atah Adonai eloheinu melech ha-alom ha-boray peri ha-gafen.

Blessed are you Lord, God of all creation, 

Who creates the fruit of the vine. 

     He then gave the cup to His disciples, and said:

     Take this, all of you and drink from it:



     the blood of the new 

     and everlasting covenant.  

     It will be shed for you and for all 

     so that sins may be forgiven.

     Do this in remembrance of Me.      * * * *    *


P.  Let us proclaim the mystery of faith.


P.  Christ has died, 

&  Christ is risen, 

C. Christ will come again.


P.  Father, we celebrate the memory 

&   of Christ, Your Son.  

C.  We, Your people and Your ministers,

     recall His passion,

     His resurrection from the dead,

     and His ascension into glory;

     and from the many gifts You have given us,

     we offer to You,

     God of glory and majesty,

     this holy and perfect sacrifice:

     the bread of life

     and the cup of eternal salvation.


     Look with favor on these offerings

     and accept them as once You accepted

     the gifts of Your servant Abel,

     the sacrifice of Abraham and Sarah,

     our parents in faith,

     and the bread and wine offered 

     by Your priest, Melchizedek.


P.  Almighty God,

     we pray that Your angel 

     may take this sacrifice

     to Your altar in heaven,

     there to be offered by Him Who,

     as the eternal high priest,

     forever offers Himself 

     as the eternal sacrifice.


     And as He has ordained

     that the heavenly sacrifice

     shall be mirrored here on earth

     through the ministry of mortals,

     to the end that Your holy people

     may be knit more closely 

     into fellowship with You,

     we do pray for Your servants

     who minister at this altar,

     that, meetly celebrating the mysteries

     of the most holy Body (+) and Blood (+)

     of Your Son the Christ,

     they may be filled (+) 

     with Your mighty power and blessing.


     Lord, remember Your Church

     throughout the world,

     Your people who hail You

     under many names and guises.

     Make us grow in love,

     together with all Your people

     and bishops and clergy.


P.  For them and for ourselves, 

     we ask some share in the fellowship 

     of Your apostles and martyrs

     and all the just ones made perfect:

     with Mary, the Virgin Mother of God;

     with Mary of Magdala, 

     first to behold the risen Lord;

     with John the Baptist and Stephen,

     with Cecelia, Benedict, Scholastica, Gertrude,

     with Francis and Claire, 

     Julian of Norwich, Brigid,

     with Thomas of Canterbury, Thomas More,

     and the Saints and Holy Ones

     of all ages and peoples.


P.  We pray also that you welcome into Your kingdom

&   our departed brothers and sisters,

C.  and all who have left this world in Your friendship.


     Loving God, we call You Father,

     but You are also the fountain of Motherhood.

     Male and female You created us,

     in Your own image and likeness.

     May all people come to know

     that in You, there is no male or female,

     no distinction of race, class, or color;

     for we are all one in Your Son.


     Through Christ our Lord

     You give us all these gifts,

     You fill them with life and goodness,

     You bless them and make them holy.


P.  Thorough Whom,

&   with Whom, 

C.  and in Whom,    

     in the unity of the Holy Spirit,

     all glory and honor is Yours, almighty Father, 

     forever and ever.



                  Communion Rite


P.  Let us pray with confidence to the Father

     in the words that Jesus taught us:


P.  Our Father, Who art in heaven,

&   hallowed be Thy name.

C.  Thy kingdom come.  Thy will be done

     on earth as it is in heaven.

     Give us this day our daily bread,

     and forgive us our trespasses

     as we forgive those who trespass against us.  

     And lead us not into temptation,

     but deliver us from evil.

     For Thine is the kingdom, 

     and the power, and the glory,

     for ever and ever.  Amen.  



P.  O Son of God,

     You show Yourself this day

     upon countless altars

     and yet are one and indivisible.

     In token of Your great Sacrifice,

     we break this, Your Body.


P.  And in token of Your triumph (+) over death,

    the reuniting of Your Soul (+) and Body,

     and Your glorious (+) Resurrection,

     we unite this Your Body

     with this Your Blood,

     praying that we, 

     being dead to error but alive to righteousness,

     may be one with You,

     even as You are one with the Father;

     and that this action, ordained from of old,

     may be to us and to all the world

     a means of grace and of life everlasting.


                    Agnus Dei


P.  Lamb of God,

&  You take away the sins of the world:

C.  have mercy on us.


     Lamb of God,

     You take away the sins of the world:

      have mercy on us.


     Lamb of God,

     You take away the sins of the world:

     grant us peace.


P.  This is the Lamb of God,

     Who takes away the sins of the world.

     Happy are those who are called to His supper.


P.  Alleluia!  

     Christ our Passover is sacrificed for us.

C.  Therefore, let us keep the feast.  



And let us say together:

P.  As You gave Yourself, Body & Blood,

&   so, too, I offer myself 

C.  wholly unto You, O Christ,

     my body and my blood,

     to transform as You will, 

     that Your Mystery be completed in me.




P.  The gifts of God for the people of God!

     My table is ready, saith the Lord.  

     Come, my brothers and sisters, 

     and let us share joyfully in His banquet.  


     [You are all welcome to receive

     at the altar of our Beloved,

     for the Lord's Supper belongs 

     to all His people.]


(To be said at administering the Eucharist)

     The Body of Christ, the Bread of Heaven.


     The Blood of Christ, 

     the Cup of Eternal Salvation.




                Silent Meditation


                Post Communion


P.  I have eaten Your sacred Body:

&   let not the fire seize me!

C.  I have looked upon It:

     let mine eyes see Your mercies.

     I have not been a stranger to Your Mysteries:

     let me not be separated from You.  


              Prayer After Communion


P.  Let us pray.  


P.  Loving God, 

&  You strengthen us with bread from heaven

C.  and give us the joy

     of sharing the cup of Your covenant.

     By this sacrifice may we always remain 

     one with Your Son, the Christ,

     whose Body and Blood we share,

     for He is Lord for ever and ever.




P.  As has become the custom of the Order of Saint Michael, 

     let us now remember our ancestors 

     and those who have gone before us 

     by saying Kaddish. 

     Let us also bring to mind especially at this time

     all those who have died and are dying 

     in the many war-torn places across our Earth today 

     and pray that G*d’s peace may prevail.


     Let us bear in mind that Kaddish is not just a prayer for the dead 

     - for there are no words about death within this prayer. 

     Instead it is a prayer of praise to the Living G*d

     beseeching our G*d of Mercy to bring harmony and peace 

     to all who live on Earth. 

It is our custom for the Cantor to say Kaddish first in original Aramaic/Hebrew (but anyone familiar with it may join in as well!). 

All in the congregation who wish to may join in saying the English version.

Let God’s name be made great and holy 

in the world that was created as God willed. 

May God complete the holy realm in your own lifetime, 

in your day, and in the days of all the house of Israel, 

quickly and soon. And say: Amen.


May God’s great name be blessed, 

forever and as long as worlds endure.


May it be blessed, and praised, and glorified, and held in honor, 

viewed with awe, embellished, and revered; 

and may the blessed name of Holiness be hailed, 

though it be higher than all the blessings, songs, praises, and consolations 

that we utter in this world. And say: Amen.


May Heaven grant a universal peace, and life for us, and for all Israel.

And say: Amen.


May the one who creates harmony above, 

make peace for us and for all Israel, and for all who dwell on earth. 

And say: Amen.
