Dunstan, Archbishop of Canterbury, 988 : ¨The harvest is plentiful, but the laborers are few; therefore ask the Lord of the harvest to send out laborers into his harvest..¨
Phos Hilaron (Hail Gladdening Light)
Christ has entered, not into a sanctuary made with hands, a copy of the true one, but into heaven itself, now to appear in the presence of God on our behalf. Hebrews 9:24
INVITATORY AND PSALTER
O God, make speed to save us. O Lord, make haste to help us.
Glory to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit: as it was in the beginning, is now, and will be for ever. Amen. Alleluia.
Light of the world in grace and beauty, Mirror of God’s eternal face, Transparent flame of love’s free duty, You bring salvation to our race. Now, as we see the lights of evening, We raise our voice in hymns of praise; Worthy are you of endless blessing, Sun of our night, lamp of our days.
Psalm 94 O LORD God of vengeance, *O God of vengeance, show yourself. Rise up, O Judge of the world; * give the arrogant their just deserts. How long shall the wicked, O LORD, * how long shall the wicked triumph? They bluster in their insolence; * all evildoers are full of boasting. They crush your people, O LORD, * and afflict your chosen nation. They murder the widow and the stranger * and put the orphans to death. Yet they say, “The LORD does not see, * the God of Jacob takes no notice.” Consider well, you dullards among the people; * when will you fools understand? Does the One who planted the ear not hear? * does the One who formed the eye not see? Does the One who admonishes the nations not punish? * does the One who teaches all the world have no knowledge? The LORD knows our human thoughts; * how like a puff of wind they are. Happy are they whom you instruct, O Lord! * whom you teach out of your law; To give them rest in evil days, * until a pit is dug for the wicked. For you, O LORD, will not abandon your people, * nor will you forsake your own. For judgment will again be just, * and all the true of heart will follow it. Who rose up for me against the wicked? * who took my part against the evildoers? If the LORD had not come to my help, * I should soon have dwelt in the land of silence. As often as I said, “My foot has slipped,” * your love, O LORD, upheld me. When many cares fill my mind, * your consolations cheer my soul. Can a corrupt tribunal have any part with you, * one which frames evil into law? They conspire against the life of the just * and condemn the innocent to death. But the LORD has become my stronghold, * and my God the rock of my trust. The LORD will turn their wickedness back upon them and destroy them in their own malice; * the LORD our God will destroy them.
Glory to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit: * as it was in the beginning, is now, and will be for ever. Amen.
