AUGUST 9, 2020

O God beyond all praising, we worship you today and sing the love amazing that songs cannot repay;
for we can only wonder at every gift you send, at blessings without number and mercies without end:
we lift our hearts before you and wait upon your word, we honour and adore you, our great and mighty Lord.

Then hear, O gracious Saviour, accept the love we bring, that we who know your favour may serve you as our king;
and whether our tomorrows be filled with good or ill, we'll triumph through our sorrows and rise to bless you still:
to marvel at your beauty and glory in your ways, and make a joyful duty our sacrifice of praise.

I will praise you, Lord. I will praise you, Lord in the assembly of the people, your people.

Only in God is my soul at rest In Him comes my salvation
He only is my Rock My strength and my salvation

My stronghold my Savior I shall not be afraid at all
My stronghold my Savior I shall not be moved

Only in God is found safety When the enemy pursues me
Only in God is found glory When I am found meek and found lowly

Lord I come, I confess Bowing here I find my rest
Without You I fall apart You're the one that guides my heart

Lord, I need You, oh I need You Every hour I need You
My one defense, my righteousness Oh God, how I need You

Where sin runs deep, Your grace is more Where grace is found is where You are
And where You are Lord I am free Holiness is Christ in me

So teach my song to rise to You When temptation comes my way
And when I cannot stand I'll fall on You Jesus You're my hope and stay

Joyful, joyful, we adore Thee, God of glory, Lord of love;
Hearts unfold like flow’rs before Thee, Op’ning to the sun above.
Melt the clouds of sin and sadness; Drive the dark of doubt away;
Giver of immortal gladness, Fill us with the light of day!

All Thy works with joy surround Thee, Earth and heav’n reflect Thy rays,
Stars and angels sing around Thee, Center of unbroken praise.
Field and forest, vale and mountain, Flow’ry meadow, flashing sea,
Singing bird and flowing fountain Call us to rejoice in Thee.

AUGUST 9, 2020

Be not afraid. I go before you always. Come follow me, and I will give you rest.

You shall cross the barren desert, but you shall not die of thirst. You shall wander far in safety though
you do not know the way. You shall speak your words in foreign lands and all will understand. You shall
see the face of God and live.

If you pass through raging waters in the sea, you shall not drown. If you walk amid the burning flames,
you shall not be harmed. If you stand before the power of hell and death is at your side, know that I am
with you through it all.

Blessed are your poor, for the kingdom shall be theirs. Blest are you that weep and mourn, for one day
you shall laugh. And if wicked tongues insult and hate you all because of me, blessed, blessed are you.

The Lord is kind and merciful. The Lord is slow to anger, rich in compassion. The Lord is kind and merciful.

RESTLESS; Assad, Maher/OCP
You dwell in the songs that we are singing Rising to the Heavens, rising to Your heart, Your heart
Our praises filling up the spaces in between and frailty and everything You are

You are the keeper of my heart

And I'm restless, I'm restless;Til I rest in You;til I rest in You (2x)

Oh, speak now for my soul is listening Say that You have saved me, whisper in the dark, the dark
Cause I know You're more than my salvation Without You I'm hopeless, tell me who You are

Still my heart hold me close Let me hear a still small voice Let it grow, let it rise Into a shout, into a cry

Lord I come, I confess Bowing here I find my rest
Without You I fall apart You're the one that guides my heart

Lord, I need You, oh I need You Every hour I need You
My one defense, my righteousness Oh God, how I need You

Where sin runs deep, Your grace is more Where grace is found is where You are
And where You are Lord I am free Holiness is Christ in me

So teach my song to rise to You When temptation comes my way
And when I cannot stand I'll fall on You Jesus You're my hope and stay

OCEANS; Hillsong
You call me out upon the waters The great unknown where feet may fail
And there I find You in the mystery In oceans deep My faith will stand

And I will call upon Your name And keep my eyes above the waves When oceans rise
My soul will rest in your embrace For I am Yours and You are mine

Your grace abounds in deepest waters Your sovereign hand Will be my guide
Where feet may fail and fear surrounds me You've never failed and you won't start now

Spirit lead me where my trust is without borders Let me walk upon the waters Wherever You would call me
Take me deeper than my feet could ever wander, my faith will be made stronger in the presence of my Savior

There were walls between us And by the cross you came And broke them down You broke them down
And there were chains around us And by Your grace we are No longer bound No longer bound

You called me out of the grave You called me into the light You called my name and then my heart came
alive Your love is greater Your love is stronger Your love awakens Awakens awakens me

Feel the darkness shaking All the dead are coming Back to life Back to life
Hear the song awaken All creation singing We're alive Cause You're alive

And what a love we found Death can't hold us down We shout it out We're alive Cause you're alive

Is 55:10-11/Ps 65:10, 11, 12-13, 14 [Lk 8:8]/Rom 8:18-23/Mt 13:1-23 or 13:1-9

Clicking on the Chapter:Verse above will take you to the USCCB readings.



Priest: Brethren (brothers and sisters), let us acknowledge our sins, and so prepare ourselves to celebrate the sacred mysteries.

I confess to almighty God and to you, my brothers and sisters, that I have greatly sinned, in my thoughts and in my words, in what I have done and in what I have failed to do, (The people strike their breast, saying:) through my fault, through my fault, through my most grievous fault; therefore I ask blessed Mary ever-Virgin, all the Angels and Saints, and you, my brothers and sisters,
to pray for me to the Lord our God.

Priest: May almighty God have mercy on us,
forgive us our sins, and bring us to everlasting life.


*Other forms of the Penitential Act may be used.


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

We praise You, we bless You, we adore You, we glorify You, We give You thanks for Your great glory, Lord God, heavenly King, O God, almighty Father.

Lord Jesus Christ, Only Begotten Son, Lord God, Lamb of God, Son of the Father, You take away the sins of the world, have mercy on us; You take away the sins of the world, receive our prayer; You are seated at the right hand of the Father, have mercy on us.

For You alone are the Holy One, You alone are the Lord, You alone are the Most High, Jesus Christ, with the Holy Spirit, in the Glory of God the Father. Amen.


I believe in one God, the Father almighty, Maker of heaven and earth, of all things visible and invisible.

I believe in one Lord Jesus Christ, the Only Begotten Son of God, born of the Father before all ages. God from God, Light from Light, true God from true God, begotten, not made, consubstantial with the Father; through him all things were made. For us men and for our salvation He came down from heaven, (at the words that follow up to and including and became man, all bow) and by the Holy Spirit was incarnate of the Virgin Mary, and became man.

For our sake He was crucified under Pontius Pilate, He suffered death and was buried, and rose again on the third day in accordance with the Scriptures. He ascended into heaven and is seated at the right hand of the Father. He will come again in glory to judge the living and the dead and his kingdom will have no end.

I believe in the Holy Spirit, the Lord, the Giver of life, Who proceeds from the Father and the Son, Who with the Father and the Son is adored and glorified, Who has spoken through the prophets.

I believe in one, holy, catholic and apostolic Church. I confess one Baptism for the forgiveness of sins and I look forward to the resurrection of the dead and the life of the world to come. Amen.


Holy, Holy, Holy, Lord God of Hosts. 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.


Priest: The mystery of faith. All: Save us, Savior of the world, For by your Cross and Resurrection You have set us free.


Lamb of God, You take away the sins of the world: miserere nobis. (Have mercy on us.) Lamb of God, You take away the sins of the world: miserere nobis. (Have mercy on us.) Lamb of God, You take away the sins of the world: dona nobis pacem, dona nobis pacem. (Grant us peace, grant us peace.)


Holy Virgin of Guadalupe, Queen of the Angels and Mother of the Americas. We fly to you today as your beloved children. We ask you to intercede for us with your Son, as you did at the wedding in Cana. Pray for us, loving Mother, and gain for our nation and world, and for all our families and loved ones, the protection of your holy angels, that we may be spared the worst of this illness. For those already afflicted,  we ask you to obtain the grace of healing and deliverance. Hear the cries of those who are vulnerable and fearful, wipe away their tears and help them to trust. In this time of trial and testing, teach all of us in the Church to love one another and to be patient and kind. Help us to bring the peace of Jesus to our land and to our hearts. We come to you with confidence, knowing that you truly are our compassionate mother, health of the sick and cause of our joy. Shelter us under the mantle of your protection, keep us in the embrace of your arms, help us always to know the love of your Son, Jesus. Amen.


St. Michael the Archangel, defend us in battle, be our protection against the wickedness and snares of the devil.  May God rebuke him we humbly pray; and do thou, O Prince of the Heavenly host, by the power of God, cast into hell Satan and all the evil spirits who prowl about the world seeking the ruin of souls. Amen.


My Jesus, I believe that you are present in the most Blessed Sacrament. I love You above all things and I desire to receive You into my soul. Since I cannot now receive You sacramentally, come at least spiritually into my heart. I embrace You as if You were already there, and unite myself wholly to You. Never permit me to be separated from You. Amen.
