Mass of the People of God
INTRODUCTION (This is Psalm 42)
In the Name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit,
I will go unto the altar of God,
E: TO GOD WHO GIVES JOY TO MY YOUTH
Judge me oh God and distinguish my cause from the nation that is not holy. Deliver me from the unjust and the deceitful,
E: FOR THOU OH GOD ARE MY STRENGTH. WHY THEN DO I
FEEL THAT THOU HAVE CAST ME OFF? WHY DO I SORROW WHILE THE ENEMY AFFLICTS ME?
Send forth your life and your truth. They have conducted me and brought me into Your holy Hill and led me into your tabernacles
E: AND I WILL GO UNTO THE ALTAR OF GOD, TO GOD WHO GIVES JOY TO MY YOUTH
Hope in God for I will still Praise Him, the salvation of my countenance and my God
E: GLORY BE TO THE FATHER AND TO THE SON AND TO THE HOLY SPIRIT, AS IT WAS IN THE BEGINNING, IS NOW AND EVER
SHALL BE, WORLD WITHOUT END, AMEN
P): And I will go unto the altar of God
E: TO GOD WHO GIVES JOY TO MY YOUTH
P): Our help is in the Name of the Lord
E: Who made the heavens and earth
BRINGING DOWN STRONGHOLDS (Liberty Savard)
In the name of Jesus Christ, I bind my body, soul and spirit to the
will and purposes of God. I bind myself to the truth of God. I bind myself to an awareness of the power of the blood of Jesus
working in my life every day. I bind my mind to the mind of Christ that I can have the thoughts, purposes and feelings of
His heart in me. I bind my feet to the paths you have ordained for me to walk that my steps will be strong and steady. I bind
myself to the work of the cross with all of its mercy, truth, love, power, forgiveness and dying to self.
Lord, I repent of having wrong attitudes and thoughts,
I renounce them now and ask your forgiveness. I loose every old, wrong
pattern of thinking, attitude, idea, desire, belief, habit and behavior that may still be working in me. I tear down, crush,
smash and destroy every stronghold I have erected to protect them. I bind myself to the attitudes and patterns of Jesus Christ.
I bind myself to the overcoming behavior and spiritual desires that line up with the fruit of the Holy Spirit.
Father, I loose any stronghold in my life protecting wrong
feelings I have against anyone. Forgive me as I forgive those who have caused me pain, loss or grief. I loose any desire for
retribution or redress. In the name of Jesus, I loose the power and the effects of any harsh or hard words (word curses) spoken
about me, to me or by me. I loose any strongholds connected with them. I loose all generational bondage thinking and stronghold
thinking from myself. Thank you, Jesus, that you have promised whatsoever I bind and loose on earth will be bound and loosed
in heaven. Amen."

P): The Lord Be With You
E: And also with you
P): Let us pray:
P): (Taking the Bread)
Accept, oh Holy Lord, Our Father, All Mighty El Shaddai and Eternal God, these unspotted
Hosts, which I, your unworthy servant, offers unto You, My Living and True God, for my countless sins, offenses and negligences,
and for all here Present: as also for all faithful Christians both living and dead, that it may avail both me and them for
salvation unto life everlasting.
P): (Taking up the chalice)
Oh, God, Who in creating our human nature by Adam and Eve, did wonderfully dignify it and
still more wonderfully restored it.
Grant by the Mystery of this water (make the Sign of the Cross) and this wine, we may be
made partakers of Your Sons Divine Nature, as he took on our Human Nature. Blessed be Yeshua Ha Messiah, that is Jesus Christ
Your Son Our Lord, who lives and reigns with You and the Holy Spirit of Wisdom, forever and ever. Amen
P): (Calls upon the Holy Spirit to witness this sacrifice)
Come, All Mighty and Eternal God, Most Holy Spirit of Wisdom, the Sanctifier, and bless
this Sacrifice prepared for the glory of Your Holy Name
P) (Washes hands as a sign that the Sacrifice of Calvary renewed in the Mass cleanses from
sin by praying Psalm 26)
6 I wash my hands in innocence,
go about your altar, O LORD ,
7 proclaiming aloud your praise
and telling of all your wonderful deeds.
8 I love the house where you live, O LORD ,
the place where your glory dwells.
not take away my soul along with sinners,
my life with bloodthirsty men,
10 in whose hands are wicked schemes,
whose right hands are full of bribes.
11 But I lead a blameless life;
redeem me and be merciful to
12 My feet stand on level ground;
in the great assembly I will praise the LORD .
(At the end)
P): GLORY BE TO THE FATHER AND TO THE SON AND TO THE HOLY SPIRIT
E: As it was in the beginning, is now and ever shall be, world without end. Amen.
(Pastor now prays the Prayer Called the Secret)
THE SECRET (called that because it was once done in silence to recall the days when Christians
met in secret to celebrate the Great Mystery of the Eucharist)
In the Name of Jesus Our Lord and Savior, I get
down on my knees before the Father, 15this magnificent Father who parcels out all heaven and earth. 16I
ask him to strengthen us by his Spirit--not a brute strength but a glorious inner strength-- 17that Christ will
live in us as you open the door and invite him in. And I ask him that with both feet planted firmly on love, 18we'll
be able to take in with all Christians the extravagant dimensions of Christ's love. Reach out and experience the breadth!
Test its length! Plumb the depths! Rise to the heights! 19Let us live full lives, full in the fullness of God.
ask and receive this through the same Christ Our Lord in the power of the Holy Spirit, One Family of God forever. Amen
P): Pray my brothers and sisters that my sacrifice will be acceptable to God the Father,
E: MAY THE LORD RECEIVE THIS SACRIFICE OF CHRIST JESUS AT YOUR HANDS,
TO THE PRAISE AND GLORY OF GODS NAME, FOR OUR OWN GOOD AND THE GOOD OF ALL THE CHURCH
THE PREFACE OF THE GREAT CONSECRATION

THEM UP) TO THE LORD
P) Let us give thanks to the Lord our
E IT IS TRULY
RIGHT AND JUST TO GIVE THANKS TO THE LORD
(PASTOR THEN READS THE PRAYER FOR THE DAY AND SEASON)
P): So now with all the choirs of Heaven, we say:
E: (said ) HOLY, HOLY, HOLY LORD.
LORD GOD OF HOSTS. HEAVEN AND EARTH ARE FULL OF YOUR GLORY. HOSANNNA IN THE HIGHEST! BLESSED IS HE WHO COMES IN THE NAME OF
THE LORD. HOSANNA IN THE HIGHEST!
(sung): HOLY, HOLY,
HOLY LORD, GOD OF POWER AND MIGHT. HEAVEN AND EARTH ARE FULL OF YOUR GLORY. HOSANNA, HOSANNA ON HIGH! BLESSED IS HE WHO COMES
IN THE NAME OF THE LORD!
HOSANNA IN THE HIGHEST! HOSANNA IN THE HIGHEST! HOSANNA, HOSANNA ON HIGH! (Dan
Schutte, S.J. author)
P): So, we therefore humbly pray and beseech You, Oh, Lord, Most Merciful Father, through
Jesus Christ, Your Only Begotten Son, in the Power of the Most Holy Spirit of Wisdom, that you accept and bless these gifts
and these presents, which will become the Holy Sacrifice of that Same Jesus Christ, Our Lord.
Though humble Bread now and simplest Wine, by the power of the Holy Spirit of God, in obedience
to the words of Our Lord, they shall be transformed into the very Body and Blood of our Lord Jesus Christ. In this we fulfill
Your Will, Father and offer up to You in an Un bloody manner, that One Sacrifice that Jesus our Messiah and Savior won for
us on the Cross.
Once and for all, Jesus reached out in love beyond all telling and embraced us in our sins,
our sicknesses, our poverty and our failures. Once and for all on the Cross, dying He destroyed our deaths, rising He restored
our life and bought at the Price of that Blood a Holy People, a royal Priesthood consecrated to You. In doing this we proclaim
our faith in that saving Death, receive the True Antidote for our sins, and become the Food and Drink that we are about to
receive, namely the True Body and Blood of Our Lord Jesus Christ.
E: SO, IN THIS GREAT SACRIFICE, WE ASK YOU FATHER TO FORGIVE US OUR SINS, TO
UNITE AND GOVERN THE CHURCH TOGETHER WITH ALL BELIEVERS IN THE ONE, HOLY, CATHOLIC AND APOSTOLIC FAITH, PASSED ON THROUGH
THE WRITTEN AND ORAL WORD, FOUGHT FOR BY THE SAINTS OF GOD AND GIVEN TO US TODAY.
Prayers for the Living
P): Be mindful, then, Oh Lord, of Your servants
and handmaidens, especially the leaders of our countries and all churches, such as the Bishops of the Ancient Sees of Jerusalem,
Antioch, Rome, India, and Egypt. We pray for and recall all the Christian churches who profess the Apostles Creed, including
the Catholics, Episcopalians-Anglican communities, the Presbyterians, Baptists, Methodists, Lutherans, Nazarenes, Pentecostals,
and Eastern and Western Orthodox with whom we share the faith of the saints.
We also remember: _______ and _______. (Here
people ask for Prayers for those living)
P): All here present offer up to You the needs of all our families, friends, co-workers,
enemies and indeed of the entire world. May this sacrifice of praise bring us the redemption that they all hope for, the health
and salvation that we all seek and in doing so may we pay our vows to You, the everlasting, living and true God, Father through
the Son and with the Holy Spirit
Explanation of the Prayers
(Here the Pastor offers the bread and the wine, which represents us with all of our sins
and failings, to the Trinity, that Jesus our great High Pastor would take them and change them into His Prefect Body and Blood,
the same Body and Blood that was given as a sacrifice to remove our sins and give us the new nature of God.
This is called transubstantiation-to take something and change its inner nature by substitution.
The Bread and the Wine look the same, but they are changed into the image and likeness of God inwardly. So too is a Person
who is saved by a willed decision for Christ, then Born Again by water and the Holy Spirit changed into a new creation of
God, even though they may look the same as they did before this happened.
This is what it means to be Born Again. You are not the same, just as the Bread and the
Wine are not the same, by the Power of the Body of Christ broken on the Cross and the Blood of Christ Poured out in His death. When you accept this change by faith inside you, and receive the Holy Spirit through
Baptism, then you become a Christian.)
P): You, oh Lord,
are not the God of the Dead, but of the Living. So, now in that great cloud of witnesses who stand before You in Heaven, praying
with us and for us we honor in the first place, Mary, the glorious ever Virgin Mother of our Lord and Our God, Jesus Christ
Our Savior, Blessed Joseph her most chaste spouse and the Apostles, and those who were sent:
Peter, Paul, Andrew,
James, John, Thomas, James, Philip, Bartholomew Nathaniel, Matthew, Simon, Thaddeus Jude, Mary the Magdalene, Salome, Martha:
with the martyrs and Popes, Linus, Cletus, Clement, Sixtus, Cornelius, Cyprian, Lawrence, Chrysogonus, and John and Paul, Cosmos and Damian and of all your saints.
E: MAY WE BE DEFENDED
BY THE HELP OF YOUR PROTECTION, AND IN THEIR HONOR GRANT OUR PRAYERS, THROUGH THE SAME CHRIST, YOUR SON, OUR LORD.
P): May Your Spirit come upon these our Gifts. Now
by that same Holy Spirit of Wisdom, You Who first breathed life upon the waters at the beginning of human history, breathe
on this Bread and Wine that it may become the Living Body and Blood of Our Lord Jesus Christ, Your Beloved Son.
THE WORDS OF CONSECRATION
(Pastor Only): WHO,
ON THE DAY BEFORE HE SUFFERED, TOOK BREAD INTO HIS HOLY AND VENERABLE HANDS, AND LIFTING UP HIS EYES UNTO YOU, GOD THE ALMIGHTY
FATHER, GIVING THANKS TO YOU, THE COVENANT KEEPER, YAHWEH-JEHOVAH, EL SHADDAI
(Pastor now prays a blessing
Baruch atah Adonai eloheynu melech ha-olam ha-mo-tzi
lechem min ha-aretz
Blessed are You, Eternal our God, Ruler of the Universe, who brings forth bread from the
Pastor: He then broke the Bread and gave
it to His disciples saying:
TAKE THIS ALL OF YOU AND EAT IT, FOR THIS IS MY BODY WHICH WILL BE GIVEN UP FOR YOU
(We look up at the Host and make a Prayer of adoration or thanks)
BRUISED FOR OUR INIQUITIES, BY YOUR STRIPES, HEAL US OH, LORD, LAMB OF GOD
(Pastor Only): IN THE SAME
MANNER, AFTER EATING, HE TOOK ALSO THIS EXCELLENT CHALICE INTO HIS HOLY AND VENERABLE HANDS, AND GIVING YOU THANKS,
(Pastor prays blessing in
Baruch atah Adonai eloheynu melech ha-olam bo-ray p'ree
Blessed are You, Eternal our God, Ruler of the Universe, Creator of the fruit of the vine.
THEN HE GAVE IT TO HIS
DISCIPLES SAYING TAKE AND DRINK ALL OF THIS FOR THIS IS THE CHALICE OF MY BLOOD, THE BLOOD OF THE NEW AND ETERNAL COVENANT,
THE TESTAMENT OF THE MYSTERY OF FAITH, WHICH IS SHED FOR YOU AND FOR MANY UNTO THE REMISSION OF SINS.
bows) AS OFTEN AS YOU DO THIS, YOU DO THIS IS IN RECOLLECTION OF ME
(Pastor raises chalice of the Precious Blood. We look up at the chalice and give thanks)
EVERYONE: HAVE MERCY ON YOUR PEOPLE THROUGH YOUR SONS MOST PRECIOUS BLOOD!
Let us proclaim the mystery of Faith
E: CHRIST HAS DIED. CHRIST HAS RISEN. CHRIST WILL COME AGAIN.
(IF SUNG) CHRIST HAS DIED, HAS RISEN. CHRIST WILL COME AGAIN! DYING, YOU DESTROYED OUR DYING AND RISING, YOU BRING NEW LIFE AGAIN! COME LORD JESUS!
COME AGAIN! COME LORD JESUS! COME AGAIN! (John M. Talbot, author)
Wherefore, Oh Lord, we Your servants and children, who are also Your Holy People, calling to mind this Blessed Passion of
Your Son, Jesus Christ, and His resurrection from the dead, and His Glorious Ascension into Heaven, now offer unto You, to
Your Excellent Majesty, this one Gift given to us from You. This is the Victim who is Holy, this the is Victim who is Pure,
this is the Victim who is spotless,
who calls Himself the Bread of Life, He whose very Heart is the Chalice of the Precious Blood, Life everlasting.
down therefore on these gifts and have them borne to Your altar on high, accept them as You accepted the gifts of Abel, who
offered a Lamb in faith in contrast to Cain who gave the cursed fruit of his own works. Bless them as you accepted and blessed
the sacrifice of Isaac, the Promised Child of Sarah, offered by Abraham, our father in faith and the gifts of Bread and Wine
given by Melchisedech.
WHO MADE COVENANT WITH YOUR CHILDREN ISRAEL THROUGH THE BLOOD OF BULLS, LAMBS AND GOATS, LOOK DOWN ON THIS THE BODY AND BLOOD
OF JESUS CHRIST, YOUR SON, TRULY GOD AND TRULY HUMAN HERE ON THIS ALTAR UNDER THE APPEARENCE OF BREAD AND WINE. AS HE DIED
ONCE ON THE CROSS AND GAVE HIMSELF AS AN ATONEMENT FOR ALL OF OUR SINS, SO WE COME NOW AND PLEAD THE PRESENCE AND POWER OF
HIS HOLY BLOOD TO CLEANSE US FROM ALL SIN AND UNRIGHTEOUSNESS.
ASK THAT HIS BLOOD NOW CLEANSE EACH ONE OF US IN OUR FAMILIES, OUR ANCESTORS AND DESCENDANTS, OUR COMMUNITIES AND OUR NATIONS. IN THAT SACRED NAME OF JESUS, IN THE POWER OF HIS BLOOD, BREAK, UNBIND AND DISSOLVE
ANY OF THE CURSES OF SIN AND DEATH THAT MAY HAVE COME UPON US THROUGH THE POWER OF SIN AND INIQUITIES IN OUR LIVES, ESPECIALLY
_____________(NAME SOME OF THE CURSES AND SINS)
CHRIST BECAME A CURSE FOR US THAT WE MIGHT KNOW THE BLESSINGS OF ABRAHAM. THANK YOU, LORD JESUS FOR SETTING US FREE! THOUGH
WE CANNOT SEE PERFECTLY, WE NOW PERFECTLY BELIEVE THAT YOU ARE HERE NOW TO FEED US WITH YOUR BODY AND BLOOD.
FOR THE DEAD
As You commanded the Macabees of old, the defenders of the Faith, we now turn to You, Lord God, Our Father and offer prayers
for the faithful departed in the Blood of Jesus. (Mention the dead)
those who died in Your friendship be brought to the glory of the fullness of life with You. Grant them we beseech You, a place
of refreshment, light and peace through the same Christ Our Lord. Amen
To us also Your sinful servants, we ask your Mercy and confide in the prayers of all the saints. May we have part and fellowship
with your martyrs and witnesses: John, Stephen, Barnabas, Matthias, Ignatius, Alexander, Marcellinus, Peter, Perpetua, Felicity,
Agnes, Cecelia, Agatha, Lucy, Julia, Philomena and with all your saints who have suffered with You.
think of Maximilian Kolbe, Edith Stein, Miguel Pro, the martyrs of Vietnam and Communist Russia and China. We recall the Ugandan
Martyrs, Charles Lwanga, Joseph Musaka, and Kitzio, along with Maria Goretti, the Huron Martyrs and all those who have died
defending the faith, especially________(the saints for the day).
these days of trial and unbelief may their witness be a light unto us still here on earth as the Church Militant.
their example strengthen those suffering now and bring them safely into the Light of Heaven through Christ our Lord. Amen

(Dan Schutte, S.J. author and composer)
(Pastor lowers Prayer Shawl to shoulders)
Taught by Our Savior Command and following Your Divine Precepts, we are bold to say:
E: OUR FATHER, WHO ART IN HEAVEN, HALLOWED BE THY NAME.
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.
P: For if you forgive people
when they sin against you, your heavenly Father will also forgive you. 15But if you do not forgive people their
sins, your Father will not forgive your sins. Hear the Words of Our Lord!
Deliver us from every evil, Past, Present and to come and by the prayers that you honor through Jesus Christ of Mary, the
Virgin Mother of God, Joseph her chaste spouse, Peter, Paul, Andrew and all the saints may we have the unity of the Holy Spirit
forever and ever.
Peace be with You
E: AND ALSO WITH YOU
Make peace in your hearts with God and with one another. Then come and offer your gifts at the altar of the Lord. For anyone
who eats and drinks of this altar with hatred in the heart or unforgiveness does not recognize the Living Body and Blood of
Jesus present here and eats and drinks condemnation and judgment before All Mighty God. Let us prepare our hearts then to
receive the Lord.

all may know God's Peace and Healing:
The Serenity Prayer

and wisdom to know the difference.
Living one day at a time;
Enjoying one moment at a time;

as it is, not as I would have it;
that He will make all things right
if I surrender to His Will;
That I may be reasonably happy in this life

Holy Communion is a serious Sacrament! We are warned not to take Communion if we have bitterness or rejection in our
hearts towards someone else. Please take advantage of our time of foot washing and confessional prayer before Liturgy if you
need to forgive someone or let go of your sins.
This is also a time for hearing Prophecy from the Lord or receiving God's healing touch.
