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.

  • Liturgy of the Word ✠

    First Reading: ISAIAH 52:7–10

    How beautiful upon the mountains are the feet of him who brings glad tidings, announcing peace, bearing good news, announcing salvation, and saying to Zion, “Your God is King!”

    Hark! Your sentinels raise a cry, together they shout for joy, for they see directly, before their eyes, the LORD restoring Zion.

    Break out together in song, O ruins of Jerusalem! For the LORD comforts his people, he redeems Jerusalem. The LORD has bared his holy arm in the sight of all the nations; all the ends of the earth will behold the salvation of our God.

    The Second Reading: HEBREWS 1:1-6

    Responsorial Psalm:

    Brothers and sisters: In times past, God spoke in partial and ways

    to our ancestors through the prophets; in these last days, he has spoken to us through the Son, whom he made heir of all things and through whom he created the universe, who is the refulgence of his glory, the very imprint of his being, and who sustains all things by his mighty word. him.

    When he had accomplished purification from sins, he took his seat at the right hand of the Majesty on high, as far superior to the angels

    as the name he has inherited is more excellent than theirs.

    For to which of the angels did God ever say: You are my son; this day I have begotten you?

    Or again: I will be a father to him, and he shall be a son to me?

    And again, when he leads the firstborn into the world, he says: Let all the angels of God worship.

  • Gospel Acclamation:

    Gospel: LUKE 2:15-20

    I believe in one God, the Father, the 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,

    (All bow at the words that follow, up to and include “and became man,”)

    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.


    Universal Prayer: RESPONSE – LORD, HEAR OUR PRAYER


    Profession of Faith: NICENE CREED

    When the angels went away from them to heaven, the shepherds said to one another, “Let us go, then, to Bethlehem to see this thing that has taken place, which the Lord has made known to us.”

    So they went in haste and found Mary and Joseph, and the infant lying in the manger.

    When they saw this, they made known the message that had been told them about this child.

    All who heard it were amazed by what had been told them by the shepherds.

    And Mary kept all these things, reflecting on them in her heart.

    Then the shepherds returned, glorifying and praising God for all they had heard and seen, just as it had been told to them.

    The Communion Rite ✠

    1. Angels we have heard on high Sweetly singing o’er the plains, And the mountains in reply Echo back their joyous strains.

    2. Shepherds, why this jubilee? Why your joyous strains prolong? Say what may the tidings be Which inspire your heav’nly song?

    3. Come to Bethlehem and see Him whose birth the angels sing; Come, adore on bended knee Christ, the Lord, the newborn King.

    4. See him in a manger laid Whom the angels praise above; Mary, Joseph, lend your aid, While we raise our hearts in love.

  • Communion Song II: THE FIRST NOWELL

    1. The first Nowell, the angel did say, Was to certain poor shepherds in fields as they lay; In fields where they lay keeping their sheep, On a cold winter’s night that was so deep.

    2. They looked up and saw a star Shining in the east, beyond them far; And to the earth it gave great light, And so it continued both day and night.

    3. And by the light of that same star Three wise men came from country far; To seek for a king was their intent, And to follow the star wherever it went.

    4. This star drew nigh to the northwest, O’er Bethlehem it took its rest, And there it did both stop and stay, Right over the place where Jesus lay.
