1 The Order of Weekday Mass ( th Grade Edition) Preparation Meditation (Engage: As you pray in preparation for the Mass to begin, be aware of God s presence. Review the last day or few days and think about the times when you were or were not the presence of Christ in the events and relationships of your life. Ask Him to help you feel His Presence during Mass and to reveal to you at least one thing during Mass that will help you grow closer to Him, to become the best version of yourself.) (Engage: Throughout the liturgy, being a passive observer is not enough. Please make an effort to fully and actively participate in the prayers, responses, songs, and rituals of the Mass. You owe it to Him.) Entrance Song (please stand) (Engage- Make an effort to sing. You may not enjoy singing, or you may be unable to sing, but at least follow the words of the song in your hymnal, reflecting on how they challenge or comfort you.) Introductory Rites Veneration of the Altar Sign of the Cross In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit. (Mt 28:19) Amen.

(1 Cor 11:28, 27; Jas 5:16) I confess to almighty God and to you, my brothers and sisters, that I have greatly sinned, in my thoughts and in my words, (Phil 4:18; Jas 3:5) in what I have done and in what I have failed to do, (Jas 4:17; Mt 19:16-24) (And, striking their chest, they say:) (Lk 18:13) through my fault, through my fault, through my most grievous fault: (1 Chr 21:8) (Then they continue:) therefore I ask blessed Mary ever- Virgin, all the Angels and Saints, and you, my brothers and sisters, to pray for me to the Lord our God. Kyrie (The Kyrie, eleison- Lord, have mercy- invocations follow, unless they have just occurred in a formula of the Penitential Act.) Lord, have mercy. Lord, have mercy. Christ, have mercy. Christ, have mercy. Lord, have mercy. Lord, have mercy. (Mt 9:27-30; 15:22-28; Mk 10:46-52) (The absolution (non- sacramental) by the Priest follows.)

Collect (Opening Prayer) (Engage- Begin to listen for themes in the prayers and readings of the Mass and focus on what God is trying to say to you.) Liturgy of the Word First Reading (sit) (Engage: Listen for one word or phrase that speaks to you in special way. Reflect on what God is trying to say to you and how this word or phrase relates to your life.) (At the conclusion of the reading:) The Word of the Lord. Thanks be to God. (Rom 17:17-18; 7:24-25; 1 Cor 15:56-57; 2 Cor 2:14; 9:15) (After a period of silence, the Responsorial Psalm is sung.) (Rv 8:1; Lk 2:18) Responsorial Psalm (Col 3:16) Alleluia or Gospel Acclamation (please stand) (Ps ; Rv 19:1-9) Gospel (The Priest, bowing before the altar, says quietly:) Cleanse my heart and my lips, almighty God, that I may worthily proclaim your holy Gospel.

(At the conclusion:) The Gospel of the Lord. Praise to you, Lord Jesus Christ. (Then the Priest or Deacon kisses the book, saying quietly:) Through the words of the Gospel may our sins be wiped away.

4 Homily (please sit) (Engage: Listen for a single phrase that speaks to you and calls you closer to God. Listen. Stay open to what God might be trying to say to you.) Prayer of the Faithful (please stand) (1 Thess 1:2-3; 2 Cor 1:11; Phil 2:4; Jn 16:23; Acts 12:1-7) (Engage: Consider whom and what you are praying for. Immerse yourself for a moment in that person s need, responsibilities, or pain.) (After each prayer of intercession:) Lord, hear our prayer. Liturgy of the Eucharist Offertory (please sit) (Mt 17:24-27; Lk 21:1-4; 1 Cor 16:1-4) (Engage: During the offertory, participate in the prayer offering or give of your resources generously. As the gifts are being brought forward and as the priest is preparing the gifts, in your heart bring the different aspects of your life forward and offer them to God. Offer God your studies, your family, your future, your activities/sports, your friendships. In a special way offer him your successes and failures. Hold up to God a friend who is suffering in some way. Offer him a particular struggle that you are enduring. Offer God everything. Mentally and spiritually place them all on the altar so that God can transform them.) Offertory/Preparation of Gifts Song Presentation and Preparation of the Gifts (Bread and wine are brought to the altar and the deacon or priest prepares these gifts. The prayers listed below may be said aloud, and all may respond as noted.) Blessed are you, Lord God of all creation, (related to Jewish Kiddush prayer) for through your goodness we have received the bread we offer you: fruit of the earth and work of human hands, it will become for us the bread of life. Blessed be God for ever. (Rom 1:25) By the mystery of this water and wine may we come to share in the divinity of Christ who humbled himself to share in our humanity. Blessed are you, Lord God of all creation, (related to Jewish Kiddush prayer; 2 Pt 1:4) for through your goodness we have received the wine we offer you: fruit of the vine and work of human hands, it will become our spiritual drink. Blessed be God for ever. (Rom 1:25) With humble spirit and contrite heart may we be accepted by you, O Lord, and may our sacrifice in your sight this day be pleasing to you, Lord God. Wash me, O Lord, from my iniquity and cleanse me from my sin. (Ps 51:2; 24:3-4) Invitation to Prayer (stand) (Engage: Bring the words of this prayer to life. With your spiritual senses, lift up your heart and offer it to the Lord. Place your heart on the altar and allow God to transform it as he will transform the bread and wine.)

5 Pray, brethren (brothers and sisters), that my sacrifice and yours may be acceptable to God, the almighty Father. May the Lord accept the sacrifice at your hands for the praise and glory of his name, for our good and the good of all his holy Church. Prayer over the Offerings The Lord be with you. (Ruth 2:4; Jgs 6:12) And with your spirit. (Gal 6:18) Lift up your hearts. (Lam 3:41) We lift them up to the Lord. (Col 3:1-2) Let us give thanks to the Lord our God. (Ps 136:1-3; 107:8; Col 2:7; Col 3:17; 1 Thess 5:18) It is right and just. Preface Sanctus Holy, Holy, Holy Lord God of hosts. Heaven and earth are full of your glory. (Rv 4:8; Is 6:3) Hosanna in the highest. (Mk 11:9-10) Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord. (Ps 118) Hosanna in the highest. Eucharistic Prayer II (please kneel) Epiclesis You are indeed Holy, O Lord, the fount of all holiness. Make holy, therefore, these gifts we pray, by sending down your Spirit upon them like the dewfall, so that they may become for us the Body and Blood of our Lord Jesus Christ. (Engage: Simply allow yourself to be in the presence of God. Quiet your mind. Imagine yourself close to Jesus at the Last Supper or at the Crucifixion. Then as the priest elevates the host and the chalice, say with Thomas in your heart, My Lord and my God (Jn 20:28). These mysteries are mysteries, but if we approach them humbly, often, and with reverence, God will give us an ever-increasing love and understanding of them.) Institutional Narrative (Mk 14:22-26; Mt 26:26-30; Lk 22:14-20; 1 Cor 11:23-35) At the time he was betrayed and entered willingly into his Passion, he took bread, and giving thanks, broke it, and gave it to his disciples, saying: Consecration of the Bread TAKE THIS, ALL OF YOU, AND EAT OF IT, FOR THIS IS MY BODY,

6 WHICH WILL BE GIVEN UP FOR YOU. (Lk 2:24; Mk 10:45; Jn 6:51; Gal 1:4) In a similar way, when supper was ended, he took the chalice and, once more giving thanks, he gave it to his disciples, saying: Consecration of the Wine TAKE THIS, ALL OF YOU, AND DRINK FROM IT. (1 Cor 11:25) FOR THIS IS THE CHALICE OF MY BLOOD, (Mt 26:28) THE BLOOD OF THE NEW AND ETERNAL COVENANT, (Ex 24:1-17) WHICH WILL BE POURED OUT FOR YOU AND FOR MANY (Lv 4:7; 18, 25, 30, 34; Is 53:10-12) FOR THE FORGIVENESS OF SINS. Anamnesis (Memorial) DO THIS IS MEMORY OF ME. (Lk 22:19; 1 Cor 11:24-25) Mystery of Faith The mystery of faith. (1 Tm 3:9) We proclaim your Death, O Lord, (1 Cor 11:26) and profess your Resurrection until you come again. When we eat this Bread and drink this Cup, (1 Cor 11:26) we proclaim your death, O Lord, until you come again. Save us, Savior of the world, (Jn 4:42) for by your Cross and Resurrection you have set us free. Therefore, as we celebrate the memorial of his Death and Resurrection, we offer you, Lord, the Bread of life and the Chalice of salvation, giving thanks that you have held us worthy to be in your presence and minister to you. Humbly we pray that, partaking of the Body and Blood of Christ, we may be gathered into one by the Holy Spirit. Intercessions Remember, Lord, your Church, spread throughout the world, and bring her to the fullness of charity, together with N. our Pope and N. our Bishop and all the clergy. Remember also our brothers and sisters who have fallen asleep in the hope of the resurrection, and all who have died in your mercy: welcome them all into your light of your face. Have mercy on us all, we pray, that with the Blessed Virgin Mary, Mother of

7 God, with the blessed Apostles, and all the Saints who have pleased you throughout the ages, we may merit to be coheirs to eternal life, and may praise and glorify you through your Son, Jesus Christ. Doxology Through him, and with him, and in him, O God, almighty Father, in the unity of the Holy Spirit, all glory and honor is yours, for ever and ever. (Rom 11:36; Ep 4:3) Great Amen Amen. (Rev 7:12; 5:14; 19:4) Eucharistic Prayer III (please kneel) (Mk 14:22-26; Mt 26:26-30; Lk 22:14-20; 1 Cor 11:23-35) Epiclesis You are indeed Holy, O Lord, and all you have created rightly gives you praise, for through your Son our Lord Jesus Christ, by the power and working of the Holy Spirit, you give life to all things and make them holy, and you never cease to gather a people to yourself, so that from the rising of the sun to its setting a pure sacrifice may be offered to you name. Therefore, O Lord, we humbly implore you: by the same Spirit graciously make holy these gifts we have brought to you for consecration, that they may become the Body and Blood of our Lord Jesus Christ, at whose command we celebrate these mysteries. (Engage: Simply allow yourself to be in the presence of God. Quiet your mind. Imagine yourself close to Jesus at the Last Supper or at the Crucifixion. Then as the priest elevates the host and the chalice, say with Thomas in your heart, My Lord and my God. These mysteries are mysteries, but if we approach them humbly, often, and with reverence, God will give us an ever-increasing love and understanding of them.) Institutional Narrative For on the night he was betrayed he himself took bread, and giving you thanks, he said the blessing, broke the bread and gave it to his disciples, saying: Consecration of the Bread TAKE THIS, ALL OF YOU, AND EAT OF IT, FOR THIS IS MY BODY, WHICH WILL BE GIVEN UP FOR YOU. (Lk 2:24; Mk 10:45; Jn 6:51; Gal 1:4) In a similar way, when supper was ended, he took the chalice and, giving you thanks, he said the blessing, and gave the chalice to his disciples, saying:

8 Consecration of the Wine TAKE THIS, ALL OF YOU, AND DRINK FROM IT. (1 Cor 11:25) FOR THIS IS THE CHALICE OF MY BLOOD, (Mt 26:28) THE BLOOD OF THE NEW AND ETERNAL COVENANT, (Ex 24:1-17) WHICH WILL BE POURED OUT FOR YOU AND FOR MANY (Lv 4:7; 18, 25, 30, 34; Is 53:10-12) FOR THE FORGIVENESS OF SINS. Anamnesis (Memorial) DO THIS IS MEMORY OF ME. (Lk 22:19; 1 Cor 11:24-25) Mystery of Faith The mystery of faith. (1 Tm 3:9) We proclaim your Death, O Lord, (1 Cor 11:26) and profess your Resurrection until you come again. When we eat this Bread and drink this Cup, (1 Cor 11:26) we proclaim your death, O Lord, until you come again. Save us, Savior of the world, (Jn 4:42) for by your Cross and Resurrection you have set us free. Therefore, O Lord, as we celebrate the memorial of the saving Passion of your Son, his wondrous Resurrection and Ascension into heaven, and as we look forward to his second coming, we offer you in thanksgiving this holy and living sacrifice. (Rom 12:1) Intercessions Look, we pray, upon the oblation of your Church and, recognizing the sacrificial Victim by whose death you willed to reconcile us to yourself, grant that we, who are nourished by the Body and Blood of your Son and filled with his Holy Spirit, may become one body, one spirit in Christ. (1 Cor 10:17) May he make of us an eternal offering to you, so that we may obtain an inheritance with your elect, especially with the most Blessed Virgin Mary, Mother of God, with your blessed Apostles and glorious Martyrs (with Saint N.; the Saint of the Day or Patron Saint) and with all the Saints, on whose constant intercession in your presence we rely for unfailing help. May this sacrifice of our reconciliation, we pray, O Lord, advance the peace and salvation of all the world. Be pleased to confirm in faith and charity your pilgrim Church

9 on earth, with your servant N. our Pope and N. our Bishop, the Order of Bishops, all the clergy, and the entire people you have gained for your own. Listen graciously to the prayers of this family, whom you have summoned before you: in your compassion, O merciful Father, gather to yourself all your children scattered throughout the world. To our departed brothers and sisters and to all who were pleasing to you at their passing from this life, give kind admittance to your kingdom. There we hope to enjoy for ever the fullness of your glory through Christ our Lord, through whom you bestow on the world all that is good. Doxology Through him, and with him, and in him, O God, almighty Father, in the unity of the Holy Spirit, all glory and honor is yours, for ever and ever. (Rom 11:36; Ep 4:3) Great Amen Amen. (Rev 7:12; 5:14; 19:4) Communion Rite Lord s Prayer (stand) (Engage: You have prayed these words a thousand times before, but allow them to be new and fresh. Focus on a particular word or phrase and allow it to sink in! If you are struggling to cooperate with God s will perhaps you will focus on thy will be done. Or maybe you have real and human needs that are not being met, so your focus may fall on the words give us this day our daily bread. Perhaps you feel the need to be forgiven for something you have said or done: forgive us our trespasses. Maybe you need the grace to forgive someone who has wronged you: as we forgive those who trespass against us. Or perhaps you are struggling with a particular temptation at this time in your life: lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil.) At the Savior s command and formed by divine teaching, we dare to say: Our Father, who art in heaven, (Mt 6:9-13; Lk 11:1-4) hallowed be thy name; thy kingdom come, thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread, and forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive those who trespass against us; and lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil.

10 Deliver us, Lord, we pray, from every evil, graciously grant peace in our days, that, by the help of your mercy, we may be always free from sin and safe from all distress, as we await the blessed hope and the coming of our Savior, Jesus Christ. (Ti 2:13) For the kingdom, the power and the glory are yours now and forever. (Rv 5:12; 19:1; 1 Chr 29:10-11) Rite of Peace (1 Jn 4:20; 1 Cor 1:10; Phil 1:27, 2:2) (Engage: Everybody is in need of healing. Jesus wants to soothe and heal our broken heart. He offers his peace to you to heal what troubles you and invites you to pass that peace on to others you are hurting. As you offer the sign of peace to those around you at Mass be mindful that while they may look happy and seem like they have it all together, we all are in need of healing.) Lord Jesus Christ, who said to your Apostles: Peace I leave you, my peace I give you, look not on our sins, but on the faith of your Church, and graciously grant her peace and unity in accordance with your will. Who live and reign for ever and ever. (Jn 14:27) Amen. The peace of the Lord be with you always. (Rom 1:7; 1 Cor 1:3; Gal 1:3) And with your spirit. (Gal 6:18) Let us offer each other the sign of peace. (All exchange a sign of peace.) (Mt 5:23-24; 1 Cor 16:20, 2 Cor 13:12; Rom 16:16; 1 Thess 5:26) Breaking of the Bread (Mt 14:19; 15:36; Mk 6:41; 8:6; Lk 9:16; 22:19; Acts 2:42; 2:46; 20:7, 11) (Then the Priest takes the host, breaks it over the paten, and places a small piece in the chalice, saying quietly:) May this mingling of the Body and Blood of our Lord Jesus Christ bring eternal life to us who receive it. (Meanwhile the following is sung or said:) Lamb of God (Rv 5:11-13; 1 Cor 5:7; Is 53) Lamb of God, you take away the sins of the world, have mercy on us. (Jn 1:29) Lamb of God, you take away the sins of the world, have mercy on us. Lamb of God, you take away the sins of the world, grant us peace. Invitation to Communion (please kneel) (The Priest genuflects, takes the host and, holding it slightly raised above the paten or above the chalice, while facing the people, says aloud:) Behold the Lamb of God, behold him who takes away the sins of the world. Blessed are those called to the supper of the Lamb. (Jn 1:29; Rv 19:9) (And together with the people he adds once:) Lord, I am not worthy that you should enter under my roof, (Luke 7:6-7; Mt 8:8) but only say the word and my soul shall be healed. (The Priest, facing the altar, says quietly:) May the Body of Christ keep me safe for eternal life.

11 (And the Priest reverently consumes the Body of Christ. Then he takes the chalice and says quietly:) May the Blood of Christ keep me safe for eternal life. (And the Priest reverently consumes the Blood of Christ.) (Engage: Before you approach the altar, ask God to forgive you of your sins. Pray an Act of Contrition to help you focus.) Communion Song Communion (Engage: As you approach the altar to receive Communion be mindful of what is about to take place. One way to do this is to pray this short prayer over and over to allow you to focus on what is happening: I wish, my Lord, to receive you as humbly as your holy mother Mary did.) The Body (Blood) of Christ. (Communicant makes a slight bow of the head.) Amen. (Engage: When you return from Communion, take the time to pray for these precious moments when Christ is so mysteriously present in you. Kneel, close your eyes, and thank God in your own words for all the blessings in your life. Name them specifically- people, places, things, and opportunities that you are grateful for. Allow your heart to fill and overflow with gratitude.) (When the distribution of Communion is over, the Priest or a Deacon purifies the paten over the chalice and also the chalice itself. While he carries out the purification, the Priest says quietly:) What has passed our lips as food, O Lord, may we possess in purity of heart, that what has been given to us in time may be our healing for eternity. Prayer after Communion Concluding Rites Announcements (please sit) Final Blessing (please stand) (Num 6:22-27) (Engage: Bow your head, close your eyes, and allow the words of the final blessing to penetrate the very depths of your being.) The Lord be with you. (Ruth 2:4; Jgs 6:12) And with your spirit. (Gal 6:18) May almighty God bless you, the Father, and the Son, and the Holy Spirit. Amen.

12 Dismissal (Jn 20:21) Go forth, the Mass is ended. Go and announce the Gospel of the Lord. Go in peace, glorifying the Lord by your life. Go in peace. Thanks be to God. (Rom 17:17-18; 7:24-25; 1 Cor 15:56-57; 2 Cor 2:14; 9:15) Veneration of the Altar Closing Song Thanksgiving Meditation (Engage: As you pray in thanksgiving for the Mass you have just celebrated, consider what you will do with the Lord s Presence (received through the Scriptures and Holy Communion) that you now carry within you. Promise God to share the Good News of His love with your family, friends, classmates, teachers, and neighbors through your thoughts, words, and actions.)
