and on earth peace to people of good will. We praise you, we bless you, we adore you,

we glorify you, we give 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 along 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.

 

 

THE NICENE CREED

 

(This is a profession of Faith.)

 

 

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 heave, 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 glorifed, 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.

 

 

 

ETERNAL REST

 

Eternal rest, grant on to them, Oh Lord, (him/her)

and let perpetual, light shine upon them (him/her)

as they rest in peace. (him/her)

Amen

 

 

 

 A Prayer for the Year of

Oscar Romero

 

A Guiding Light

Lord Jesus,

We give thanks for the life of

Blessed Oscar Romero

who spread your message

and struggled against injustice in El Salvador.

Like you,

he was a shepherd, a pastor, a brother;

Like you, he was taken from us;

Like you, he remains in our hearts.

Spirit of hope, work within us,

just as you worked

in Blessed Oscar Romero,

so that we too may work for justice

and spread the Good News,

by living out the Gospel,

in solidarity with those living in poverty.

Amen.
