Excerpt from Book

Chapter 1 The Gloria Glory be to God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit. As it was in the beginning, so it is now and so it shall ever be, world without end. Alleluia. Amen. The Lord''s Prayer Our Father, who art in heaven, hallowed be your Name. May your kingdom come, and your will be done, on earth as in heaven. Give us today our daily bread. Forgive us our sins as we forgive those who sin against us. Lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil; for yours are the kingdom and the power and the glory forever and ever. Amen. Compline Prayers for February Are Located on Page 131. The Following Holy Days Occur in February: The Feast of the Presentation of Our Lord Jesus Christ in the Temple/ The Feast of the Purification of the Blessed Virgin Mary: February 2 The Feast of St. Mathias the Apostle: February 24 The Gloria is omitted during Lent by many Christian communities. "Alleluia" is always omitted from every part of the Church''s worship during Lent; the use of both is restored at Easter. February The Morning OfficeTo Be Observed on the Hour or Half Hour Between 6 and 9 a.m. The Call to Prayer Come, let us sing to the Lord; Let us rejoice this day in the strength of our salvation. Let us come into His presence with thanksgiving, and raise a loud shout to Him with psalms. The Request for Presence Hear, O Shepherd of Israel, leading Joseph like a flock; shine forth, you that are enthroned upon the cherubim. In the presence of Ephraim, Benjamin, and Manasseh, stir up your strength and come to help us, Restore us, O God of hosts; show the light of your countenance, and we shall be saved. The Greeting It is a good thing to give thanks to the Lord, and to sing praises to your Name, O Most High; To tell of your loving-kindness early in the morning and of your faithfulness in the night season. The Refrain for the Morning Lessons In God, whose word I praise, in God I trust and will not be afraid, for what can flesh do to me? A Reading Jesus taught us, saying: "Treat others as you would like people to treat you. If you love those who love you, what credit can you expect? Even sinners love those who love them. And if you do good to those who do good to you, what credit can you expect? For even sinners do that much. And if you lend to those from whom you hope to get money back, what credit can you expect? Even sinners lend to sinners to get back the same amount. Instead, love your enemies and do good to them, and lend without any hope of return. You will have a great reward, and you will be children of the Most High, for he himself is kind to the ungrateful and the wicked." The Refrain In God, whose word I praise, in God I trust and will not be afraid, for what can flesh do to me? The Morning PsalmI Will Give Attention to Your Ways How shall a young man cleanse his way? By keeping to your words. With my whole heart I seek you; let me not stray from your commandments. I treasure your promise in my heart, that I may not sin against you. Blessed are you, O Lord; instruct me in your statutes. With my lips will I recite all the judgments of your mouth. I have taken greater delight in the way of your decrees than in all manner of riches. I will meditate on your commandments and give attention to your ways. My delight is in your statutes; I will not forget your word. The Refrain In God, whose word I praise, in God I trust and will not be afraid, for what can flesh do to me? The Gloria The Lord''s Prayer The Prayer Appointed for the Week Set me free, O God, from the bondage of my sins, and give me the liberty of that abundant life which you have made known to me in your Son our Savior Jesus Christ; who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever. Amen. The Concluding Prayer of the Church Lord God, almighty and everlasting Father, you have brought me in safety to this new day: Preserve me with your mighty power, that I may not fall into sin, nor be overcome by adversity; and in all I do direct me to the fulfilling of your purpose; through Jesus Christ my Lord. Amen. The Midday OfficeTo Be Observed on the Hour or Half Hour Between 11 a.m. and 2 p.m. The Call to Prayer Proclaim with me the greatness of the Lord; let us exalt his Name together. The Request for Presence Lord, hear my prayer, and let my cry come before you Incline your ear to me; when I call, make haste to answer me. The Greeting Let all who seek you rejoice and be glad in you; let those who love your salvation say for ever, "Great is the Lord!" The Refrain for the Midday Lessons I will give thanks to you, O Lord, with my whole heart: I will tell all your marvelous works. A Reading Of Jesus, the Apostle wrote: "It was fitting that God, for whom and through whom everything exists, should, in bringing many sons to glory, make perfect through suffering the leader of their salvation. For consecrator and consecrated are all of the same stock; . . . For it was not the angels that he took to himself; he took to himself the line of Abraham. The Refrain I will give thanks to you, O Lord, with my whole heart: I will tell of all your marvelous works. The Midday PsalmWe Will Not Fear, Though the Earth Be Moved God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble. Therefore we will not fear, though the earth be moved, and though the mountains be toppled into the depths of the sea; Though its waters rage and foam, and though the mountains tremble at its tumult. The Lord of hosts is with us; the God of Jacob is our stronghold. "Be still, then, and know that I am God; I will be exalted among the nations; I will be exalted in the earth." The Lord of hosts is with us; the God of Jacob is our stronghold. The Refrain I will give thanks to you, O Lord, with my whole heart: I will tell of all your marvelous works. The Gloria The Lord''s Prayer The Prayer Appointed for the Week Set me free, O God, from the bondage of my sins, and give me the liberty of that abundant life which you have made known to me in your Son our Savior Jesus Christ; who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever. Amen. The Concluding Prayer of the Church Lord, My God, King of heaven and of earth, for this day please direct and sanctify, set right and govern my heart and my body, my sentiments, my words and my actions in conformity with Your law and Your commandments. Thus I shall be able to attain salvation and deliverance, in time and in eternity, by Your help, O Savior of the world, who lives and reigns forever. Amen. The Vespers OfficeTo Be Observed on the Hour or Half Hour Between 5 and 8 p.m. The Call to Prayer Come let us bow down, and bend the knee and kneel before the Lord our Maker. For he is our God and we are the people of his pasture and the sheep of his hand. The Request for Presence I call upon you, O God, for you will answer me; incline your ear to me, and hear my words. The Greeting You are God: I praise you; you are the Lord: I acclaim you; You are the eternal Father: all creation worships you. Throughout the world the holy Church acclaims you: Father, of majesty unbounded, your true and only Son, worthy of all worship, and the Holy Spirit, advocate and guide. As these have been from the beginning, so they are now and evermore shall be. Alleluia. The Hymn Hail to the Lord who comes, comes to his temple gate; Not with his angel host, not in his kingly state; No shouts proclaim him nigh, no crowds his coming wait; But borne upon the throne of Mary''s gentle breast, Watched by her duteous love, in her fond arms at rest, Thus to his Father''s house he comes, the heavenly guest. There Joseph at her side in reverent wonder stands; And, filled with holy joy, old Simeon in his hands Takes up the promised child, the glory of all lands. O Light of all the earth, your children wait for thee! Come to your temples here, that we, from sin set free, Before your Father''s face may all presented be! The Refrain for the Vespers Lessons O Lord, you are my portion and my ∪ it is you who uphold my lot. The Vespers PsalmIn Your Paths My Feet Shall Not Stumble Hear my plea of innocence, O Lord; give heed to my cry; listen to my prayer, which does not come from lying lips. Weigh my heart, summon me by night, melt me down; you will find no impurity in me. I give no offense with my mouth as others do;* I have heeded the words of your lips. My footsteps
