INTRODUCTION
 

CHANT - Veni lumen

O veni Creator Spiritus.  O veni lumen cordium, veni lumen cordium.

Come Holy Spirit, Comforter. Come! Come and lead us with your light!
 

PSALM

O Lord, you search me and you know me,
you know my resting and my rising,
you discern my purpose from afar.

You mark when I walk or lie down,
all my ways lie open to you.
Before ever a word is on my tongue
you know it, Lord, through and through.

Behind and before you besiege me,
your hand ever laid upon me.
Too wonderful for me, this knowledge,
too high, beyond my reach.

O where can I go from your spirit,
or where can I flee from your face?
If I climb the heavens, you are there.
If I lie in the grave, you are there.

If I take the wings of the dawn
and dwell at the sea’s furthest end,
even there your hand would lead me,
your right hand would hold me fast.

If I say: “Let the darkness hide me
and the light around me be night,”
even darkness is not dark for you
and the night is as clear as the day.                                                          Psalm 139

 

 

CHANT – Toi, tu nous aimes

Toi, tu nous aimes, source de la vie!

Lord God, you love us, you are the source of life.


 

READING

Jesus said, ‘God so loved the world that he gave his only Son, so that everyone who believes in him may not perish but may have eternal life.  Indeed, God did not send the Son into the world to condemn the world but in order that the world might be saved through him.’

John 3: 16-17
