The hour is coming, and now is, when the true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and in truth, for such the Father seeks to worship him. John 4:23 Confession of Sin
Dearly beloved, we have come together in the presence of Almighty God our heavenly Father, to set forth his praise, to hear his holy Word, and to ask, for ourselves and on behalf of others, those things that are necessary for our life and our salvation. And so that we may prepare ourselves in heart and mind to worship him, let us kneel in silence, and with penitent and obedient hearts confess our sins, that we may obtain forgiveness by his infinite goodness and mercy.or this
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.
*A deacon or lay person using the preceding form remains kneeling, and substitutes 'us' for 'you' and 'our' for 'your.'
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. AmenThe Invitatory and Psalter Officiant:

Jubilate Psalm 100
Be joyful in the Lord, all you lands;
serve the Lord with gladness and come before his presence with a song.
Know this: The Lord himself is God;
he himself has made us, and we are his; we are his people and the sheep of his pasture.
Enter his gates with thanksgiving; go into his courts with praise;
give thanks to him and call upon his Name.
For the Lord is good; his mercy is everlasting;
and his faithfulness endures from age to age.
The following Antiphon may be sung or said
The mercy of the Lord is everlasting: Come let us adore him.
Give ear, O Shepherd of Israel, You who lead Joseph like a flock; You who dwell between the cherubim, shine forth! (2)
Before Ephraim, Benjamin, and Manasseh, Stir up Your strength, And come and save us! (3)
Restore us, O God; Cause Your face to shine, And we shall be saved! (4)
O LORD God of hosts, How long will You be angry Against the prayer of Your people? (5)
You have fed them with the bread of tears, And given them tears to drink in great measure. (6)
You have made us a strife to our neighbors, And our enemies laugh among themselves. (7)
Restore us, O God of hosts; Cause Your face to shine, And we shall be saved! (8)
You have brought a vine out of Egypt; You have cast out the nations, and planted it. (9)
You prepared room for it, And caused it to take deep root, And it filled the land. (10)
The hills were covered with its shadow, And the mighty cedars with its boughs. (11)
She sent out her boughs to the Sea, And her branches to the River. (12)
Why have You broken down her hedges, So that all who pass by the way pluck her fruit? (13)
The boar out of the woods uproots it, And the wild beast of the field devours it. (14)
Return, we beseech You, O God of hosts; Look down from heaven and see, And visit this vine (15)
And the vineyard which Your right hand has planted, And the branch that You made strong for Yourself. (16)
It is burned with fire, it is cut down; They perish at the rebuke of Your countenance. (17)
Let Your hand be upon the man of Your right hand, Upon the son of man whom You made strong for Yourself. (18)
Then we will not turn back from You; Revive us, and we will call upon Your name. (19)
Restore us, O LORD God of hosts; Cause Your face to shine, And we shall be saved!Glory to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit, as it was in the beginning, is now, and will be forever. Amen.
Now on the twenty-fourth day of this month the children of Israel were assembled with fasting, in sackcloth, and with dust on their heads. (2)
Then those of Israelite lineage separated themselves from all foreigners; and they stood and confessed their sins and the iniquities of their fathers. (3)
And they stood up in their place and read from the Book of the Law of the LORD their God for one-fourth of the day; and for another fourth they confessed and worshiped the LORD their God. (4)
Then Jeshua, Bani, Kadmiel, Shebaniah, Bunni, Sherebiah, Bani, and Chenani stood on the stairs of the Levites and cried out with a loud voice to the LORD their God. (5)
And the Levites, Jeshua, Kadmiel, Bani, Hashabniah, Sherebiah, Hodijah, Shebaniah, and Pethahiah, said: 'Stand up and bless the LORD your God Forever and ever! 'Blessed be Your glorious name, Which is exalted above all blessing and praise! (6)
You alone are the LORD; You have made heaven, The heaven of heavens, with all their host, The earth and everything on it, The seas and all that is in them, And You preserve them all. The host of heaven worships You. (7)
You are the LORD God, Who chose Abram, And brought him out of Ur of the Chaldeans, And gave him the name Abraham; (8)
You found his heart faithful before You, And made a covenant with him To give the land of the Canaanites, The Hittites, the Amorites, the Perizzites, the Jebusites, And the Girgashites -- To give it to his descendants. You have performed Your words, For You are righteous. (9)
You saw the affliction of our fathers in Egypt, And heard their cry by the Red Sea. (10)
You showed signs and wonders against Pharaoh, Against all his servants, And against all the people of his land. For You knew that they acted proudly against them. So You made a name for Yourself, as it is this day. (11)
And You divided the sea before them, So that they went through the midst of the sea on the dry land; And their persecutors You threw into the deep, As a stone into the mighty waters. (12)
Moreover You led them by day with a cloudy pillar, And by night with a pillar of fire, To give them light on the road Which they should travel. (13)
You came down also on Mount Sinai, And spoke with them from heaven, And gave them just ordinances and true laws, Good statutes and commandments. (14)
You made known to them Your holy Sabbath, And commanded them precepts, statutes and laws, By the hand of Moses Your servant. (15)
You gave them bread from heaven for their hunger, And brought them water out of the rock for their thirst, And told them to go in to possess the land Which You had sworn to give them. The Word of the Lord.
Thanks be to God.
After these things I saw another angel coming down from heaven, having great authority, and the earth was illuminated with his glory. (2)
And he cried mightily with a loud voice, saying, 'Babylon the great is fallen, is fallen, and has become a dwelling place of demons, a prison for every foul spirit, and a cage for every unclean and hated bird! (3)
For all the nations have drunk of the wine of the wrath of her fornication, the kings of the earth have committed fornication with her, and the merchants of the earth have become rich through the abundance of her luxury.' (4)
And I heard another voice from heaven saying, 'Come out of her, my people, lest you share in her sins, and lest you receive of her plagues. (5)
For her sins have reached to heaven, and God has remembered her iniquities. (6)
Render to her just as she rendered to you, and repay her double according to her works; in the cup which she has mixed, mix double for her. (7)
In the measure that she glorified herself and lived luxuriously, in the same measure give her torment and sorrow; for she says in her heart, 'I sit as queen, and am no widow, and will not see sorrow.' (8)
Therefore her plagues will come in one day -- death and mourning and famine. And she will be utterly burned with fire, for strong is the Lord God who judges her. The Word of the Lord.
Thanks be to God.
Then the scribes and Pharisees who were from Jerusalem came to Jesus, saying, (2)
Why do Your disciples transgress the tradition of the elders? For they do not wash their hands when they eat bread.' (3)
He answered and said to them, 'Why do you also transgress the commandment of God because of your tradition? (4)
For God commanded, saying, 'Honor your father and your mother'; and, 'He who curses father or mother, let him be put to death.' (5)
But you say, 'Whoever says to his father or mother, 'Whatever profit you might have received from me is a gift to God' -- (6)
then he need not honor his father or mother.' Thus you have made the commandment of God of no effect by your tradition. (7)
Hypocrites! Well did Isaiah prophesy about you, saying: (8)
These people draw near to Me with their mouth, And honor Me with their lips, But their heart is far from Me. (9)
And in vain they worship Me, Teaching as doctrines the commandments of men.' ' (10)
When He had called the multitude to Himself, He said to them, 'Hear and understand: (11)
Not what goes into the mouth defiles a man; but what comes out of the mouth, this defiles a man.' (12)
Then His disciples came and said to Him, 'Do You know that the Pharisees were offended when they heard this saying?' (13)
But He answered and said, 'Every plant which My heavenly Father has not planted will be uprooted. (14)
Let them alone. They are blind leaders of the blind. And if the blind leads the blind, both will fall into a ditch.' (15)
Then Peter answered and said to Him, 'Explain this parable to us.' (16)
So Jesus said, 'Are you also still without understanding? (17)
Do you not yet understand that whatever enters the mouth goes into the stomach and is eliminated? (18)
But those things which proceed out of the mouth come from the heart, and they defile a man. (19)
For out of the heart proceed evil thoughts, murders, adulteries, fornications, thefts, false witness, blasphemies. (20)
These are the things which defile a man, but to eat with unwashed hands does not defile a man.' The Gospel of the Lord.
Thanks be to God. Canticles can be prayed or sung after each reading or after all readings.
