1 Advent /Christmastide Daily Office Lectionary and Morning Prayer readings year one

2 A New Year of Hope in Jesus Christ Welcome to Advent, the arrival of a new liturgical year. As living members of the global Church, we move forward towards our collective hope of glory, Jesus Christ. Advent is a translation of the Greek word parousia which means presence or, more, precisely, arrival, the beginning of a presence. This central idea of Advent as arrival doesn t leave us waiting in his absence, merely, soon to return. But, even now, in blessings and battles, we re given the promise of his presence, until the end of the age. We are those who love his appearing, now and forever. At present, as his earthly body, we participate in his divine nature. As members of the Son, we bear witness to his healing presence, Hosanna! And with all our missional muster, we long, wait, and groan with the Spirit, with the heartfelt cry, Surely I am coming soon. Amen. Come, Lord Jesus! The grace of the Lord Jesus be with all the saints. Amen Rev. 22: During Advent-tide a special grace of the coming of the Lord is offered to us. While the Lord Jesus is already present to us, the grace of Advent offers us a more vivid, and renewed awareness of his presence, Christ in us, the hope of glory. As we reflect, in faith, on the ancient prophecies and affirm his eternal intentions, we experience him now as wanting to be with us, and intent on being married to us, as his glorious bride. Ask, seek, knock it shall be given, found, and opened. The Spirit and the Bride say, Come. The Advent candles display the strong contrast between darkness and light. In the Scriptures, Christ is identified as the Light of the World contrasted with the darkness of sin. Each week moves through redemptive history, from patriarchs and prophets to John the Baptist and the Virgin Mary, each step bringing us closer to the Father s greatest gift, the gift of his beloved Son, Jesus Christ. As his Advent draws nearer another candle is lit, dispelling the darkness a little more. Thus, we contemplate the great drama of salvation history that surrounds the birth of God Incarnate, God s lamb, to give his life as a ransom for many, to take away the sins of the world. So, in this new beginning, let us hear the apostolic exhortation, The night is far gone; the day is at hand. So then let us cast off the works of darkness and put on the armor of light Rom. 13:12. Our light has come and shall continue to come, until fully present forever and ever. Amen. Fr. Michael 2

3 The Church in Word and Prayer In keeping with the Anglican way of daily communal prayer, as we enter the new liturgical year, beginning Sunday, December 2 nd, let us join together with the Daily Office, our common daily reading of Scripture and prayer. The Daily Office readings, used for Morning and Evening Prayer, begin this new year with Year One on pages 936f. of the Book of Common Prayer. This booklet provides the Scripture references for Advent and the twelve days of Christmastide. If time permits, these readings integrate with Morning and Evening Prayer liturgies in the Book of Common Prayer, pages for Morning Prayer and pages for Evening Prayer. These two prayer forms were meant to be experienced in community, as a family or a congregation. There are other ways to prayerfully incorporate the Daily Office readings. Set aside a time to read the Scriptures together, as friends or family. The Holy Scriptures provide a journey into God s promise and fulfillment in Jesus Christ, his first and final advent. A rich feast awaits those who slow down and come together to prayer and hear aloud the Word of God. As singles or families, choose a devotional time, morning and/or evening. Depending on the age of your children, make the necessary adjustments (perhaps reading only the Gospel together with prayers), then, time permitting, complete the readings as husband and wife. Read aloud. End with a time of prayer. The following pages provide the Daily Office readings with each week s Collect. The Sunday Collect may be used to open up each day s time of reading and prayer. The Daily Office liturgy for Morning Prayer is included and begins on page 9 for collective or personal devotional use. Pray without Ceasing. I Thess. 5:17 3

9 Daily Morning Prayer The Daily Office of Morning Prayer assumes congregational use, but can be followed individually. Thomas Cranmer, the author of the first Book of Common Prayer, 1549, modified the Benedictine Liturgy of the Hours, chanted in monasteries, for Parish (congregational) use in daily corporate prayer meetings. A Parish gathered together every day to pray mornings and evenings. The following liturgy is a modification from the 1979 Book of Common Prayer, pages Advent (Opening Scripture for advent) Watch, for you do not know when the master of the house will come, in the evening, or at midnight, or at cockcrow, or in the morning, lest he come suddenly and find you asleep. Mark 13:35, 36 Christmastide (Opening Scripture for Christmastide) Behold, the dwelling of God is with mankind. He will dwell with them, and they shall be his people, and God himself will be with them, and be their God. Revelation 21:3 Officiant Let us confess our sins against God and our neighbor. Most merciful God, we confess that we have sinned against you in thought, word, and deed, by what we have done, and by what we have left undone. We have not loved you with our whole heart; we have not loved our neighbors as ourselves. We are truly sorry and we humbly repent. For the sake of your Son Jesus Christ, have mercy on us and forgive us; that we may delight in your will, and walk in your ways, to the glory of your Name. Amen 9

10 Officiant (Any person may proclaim the following) Almighty God, have mercy on us, forgive us all our sins through our Lord Jesus Christ, strengthen us in all goodness, and by the power of the Holy Spirit keep us in eternal life. Amen. The Invitatory and Psalter Officiant People Lord, open our lips. And our mouth shall proclaim your praise. Officiant and People 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. Antiphon Our King and Savior now draws near: Come, let us adore him. The Psalm or Psalms Appointed (Daily Office Lectionary) At the end of the Psalms is said 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.

11 First Canticle The Song of Zechariah Benedictus Dominus Deus Luke 1: Blessed be the Lord, the God of Israel; * he has come to his people and set them free. He has raised up for us a mighty savior, * born of the house of his servant David. Through his holy prophets he promised of old, that he would save us from our enemies, * from the hands of all who hate us. He promised to show mercy to our fathers * and to remember his holy covenant. This was the oath he swore to our father Abraham, * to set us free from the hands of our enemies, Free to worship him without fear, * holy and righteous in his sight all the days of our life. You, my child, shall be called the prophet of the Most High, * for you will go before the Lord to prepare his way, To give his people knowledge of salvation * by the forgiveness of their sins. In the tender compassion of our God * the dawn from on high shall break upon us, To shine on those who dwell in darkness and the shadow of death, * and to guide our feet into the way of peace. 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.

12 Second Canticle The Song of Mary Magnificat Luke 1:46-55 My soul proclaims the greatness of the Lord, my spirit rejoices in God my Savior; * for he has looked with favor on his lowly servant. From this day all generations will call me blessed: * the Almighty has done great things for me, and holy is his Name. He has mercy on those who fear him * in every generation. He has shown the strength of his arm, * he has scattered the proud in their conceit. He has cast down the mighty from their thrones, * and has lifted up the lowly. He has filled the hungry with good things, * and the rich he has sent away empty. He has come to the help of his servant Israel, * for he has remembered his promise of mercy, The promise he made to our fathers, * to Abraham and his children for ever. 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. The Gospel (Daily Office Lectionary) Reader A Reading from.

He was conceived by the power of the Holy Spirit and born of the Virgin Mary. He suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, died, and was buried. He descended to the dead. On the third day he rose again. He ascended into heaven, and is seated at the right hand of the Father. He will come again to judge the living and the dead.
