Pour out your Holy Spirit on all of us gathered here, that we may be the branches of Christ, your true vine. Pour out your Holy Spirit on these gifts of bread and wine that we may be filled with your abiding love. Strengthen us in the power of your Holy Spirit, that we may be one with Christ, one with each other, and one in ministry to all the world, until Christ comes in final victory and we feast at the heavenly banquet. Through Jesus Christ, with the Holy Spirit in your holy Church, all honor and glory is yours, almighty God, now and forevermore. Amen.

GREAT THANKSGIVING

   The Lord be with you.

And also with you.

Lift up your hearts.

We lift them up to the Lord.

Let us give thanks to the Lord our God.

It is right to give our thanks and praise.

 

And so, with your people on earth, and all the company of heaven, we praise your name and join their unending hymn, saying:

Holy, holy, holy Lord, God of power of might, heaven and earth are full of your glory. Hosanna in the highest. Blessed is the one who comes in the name of the Lord. Hosanna in the highest.

 

With Christ’s love in our lives, we are invited to live in your love and to reveal your love to the world, even as we proclaim the mystery of faith.

Christ has died. Christ has risen. Christ will come again.
