COLOSSIANS 3:1

Confession of Sin

The Officiant says to the People

Let us humbly confess our sins to Almighty God.

Dearly beloved, the Scriptures teach us to acknowledge our many sins and offenses, not concealing them from our heavenly Father, but confessing them with humble and obedient hearts that we may obtain forgiveness by his infinite goodness and mercy. We ought at all times humbly to acknowledge our sins before Almighty God, but especially when we come together in his presence to give thanks for the great benefits we have received at his hands, to declare his most worthy praise, to hear his holy Word, and to ask, for ourselves and on behalf of others, those things which are necessary for our life and our salvation. Therefore, draw near with me to the throne of heavenly grace.

Let us humbly confess our sins to Almighty God.

Silence is kept. All kneeling, the Officiant and People say

Almighty and most merciful Father,

we have erred and strayed from your ways like lost sheep.

We have followed too much the devices and desires

of our own hearts.

We have offended against your holy laws.

We have left undone those things which we ought to have done,

and we have done those things which we ought not

to have done;

and apart from your grace, there is no health in us.

O Lord, have mercy upon us.

Spare all those who confess their faults.

Restore all those who are penitent, according to your promises

declared to all people in Christ Jesus our Lord.

And grant, O most merciful Father, for his sake,

that we may now live a godly, righteous, and sober life,

to the glory of your holy Name. Amen.

A Deacon or layperson remains kneeling and prays

Grant to your faithful people, merciful Lord, pardon and peace; that we may be cleansed from all our sins, and serve you with a quiet mind; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

The Priest alone stands and says

The Almighty and merciful Lord grant you absolution and remission of all your sins, true repentance, amendment of life, and the grace and consolation of his Holy Spirit. Amen.

Almighty God, the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, desires not the death of sinners, but that they may turn from their wickedness and live. He has empowered and commanded his ministers to pronounce to his people, being penitent, the absolution and remission of their sins. He pardons and absolves all who truly repent and genuinely believe his holy Gospel. For this reason, we beseech him to grant us true repentance and his Holy Spirit, that our present deeds may please him, the rest of our lives may be pure and holy, and that at the last we may come to his eternal joy; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

The Almighty and merciful Lord grant you absolution and remission of all your sins, true repentance, amendment of life, and the grace and consolation of his Holy Spirit. Amen.

as in the provocation, and as in the day of temptation in the wilderness,

When your fathers tested me, *

therefore let us keep the feast,

Not with the old leaven, the leaven of malice and evil, *

but with the unleavened bread of sincerity and truth. Alleluia.

Christ being raised from the dead will never die again; *

death no longer has dominion over him.

but the life he lives, he lives to God.

So also consider yourselves dead to sin, *

and alive to God in Jesus Christ our Lord. Alleluia.

Christ has been raised from the dead, *

The Psalms Appointed

60 Day Cycle

Psalm 26

Judica me, Domine

1 Be my judge, O Lord, for I have walked innocently;*

my trust has been in the Lord; therefore I shall not fall.

2 Test me, O Lord, and prove me;*

examine my heart and my mind.

3 For your loving-kindness is ever before my eyes,*

and I will walk in your truth.

4 I have not dwelt with evildoers,*

neither will I have fellowship with the deceitful.

5 I have hated the company of the wicked,*

and will not sit among the ungodly.

6 I will wash my hands in innocence, O Lord,*

and so will I go to your altar,

7 That I may lift up the voice of thanksgiving*

and tell of all your wondrous works.

8 Lord, I have loved the habitation of your house*

and the place where your honor dwells.

9 O take not away my soul with the sinners,*

nor my life with the bloodthirsty,

10 Whose hands are full of wickedness,*

and their right hand full of bribes.

11 But as for me, I will walk innocently;*

O deliver me, and be merciful unto me.

12 My foot stands firm;*

I will praise the Lord in the congregations.

Psalm 28

Ad te, Domine

1 Unto you will I cry, O Lord my rock; do not be deaf to my prayer;*

lest, if you do not answer, I become like those who go down into the pit.

2 Hear the voice of my humble petitions when I cry unto you,*

when I hold up my hands toward the sanctuary of your holy temple.

3 O cast me not away, neither destroy me with the ungodly and evildoers,*

who speak as friends to their neighbors, but imagine evil in their hearts.

4 Reward them according to their deeds*

and according to the wickedness of their own inventions.

5 Recompense them according to the work of their hands;*

pay them what they have deserved.

6 For they regard not in their mind the works of the Lord, nor the operation of his hands;*

therefore he shall break them down and not build them up.

7 Praised be the Lord,*

for he has heard the voice of my humble petitions.

8 The Lord is my strength and my shield; my heart has trusted in him, and I am helped;*

therefore my heart dances for joy, and in my song will I praise him.

9 The Lord is my strength,*

and he is the sure defense of his Anointed.

10 O save your people, and give your blessing to your inheritance;*

feed them, and lift them up for ever.

The Psalms Appointed

30 Day Cycle

Psalm 62

Nonne Deo?

1 For God alone my soul in silence waits;*

from him comes my salvation.

2 He truly is my strength and my salvation;*

he is my defense, so that I shall not be greatly shaken.

3 How long will you assail a man to crush him, all of you together,*

as if you were a tottering wall or a broken fence?

4 Their plan is only to bring down the one whom God has exalted;*

their delight is in lies; they bless with their mouth, but curse with their heart.

5 Nevertheless, for God alone my soul in silence waits,*

for my hope is in him.

6 He truly is my strength and my salvation;*

he is my defense, so that I shall not fall.

7 In God is my help and my glory;*

he is the rock of my might, and in him is my trust.

8 O put your trust in him always, you people;*

pour out your hearts before him, for God is our hope.

9 As for the children of men, they are but a breath;*

the children of men are deceitful; upon the scales, they are altogether lighter than a breath.

10 O trust not in oppression; put not vain hopes in robbery;*

if riches increase, set not your heart upon them.

11 One thing has God spoken; indeed, two things have I heard him say:*

that power belongs to our God;

12 And that you, O Lord, are merciful,*

for you reward everyone according to his work.

Psalm 63

Deus, Deus meus

1 O God, you are my God;*

early will I seek you.

2 My soul thirsts for you, my flesh also longs after you,*

in a barren and dry land where there is no water.

3 Thus I have looked upon you in your holy place,*

that I might behold your power and glory.

4 For your loving-kindness is better than life itself;*

my lips shall praise you.

5 As long as I live I will magnify you,*

and lift up my hands in your Name.

6 My soul shall be satisfied, as with marrow and fatness,*

when my mouth praises you with joyful lips.

7 When I remember you on my bed,*

I meditate on you in the watches of the night.

8 Because you have been my helper,*

therefore under the shadow of your wings I will rejoice.

9 My soul clings to you;*

your right hand has upheld me.

10 Those who seek to destroy my life*

shall go down into the earth.

11 Let them fall upon the edge of the sword,*

that they may be a portion for jackals.

12 But the King shall rejoice in God; all those who swear by him shall be commended,*

for the mouth of those who speak lies shall be stopped.

Psalm 64

Exaudi, Deus

1 Hear my voice, O God, in my prayer;*

preserve my life from fear of the enemy.

2 Hide me from the gathering together of the wicked,*

and from the tumult of evildoers,

3 Who have whet their tongue like a sword,*

and shoot out their arrows, even bitter words,

4 That they may secretly shoot at the one who is blameless;*

suddenly do they shoot him, and fear not.

5 They hold fast to their evil purpose,*

and discuss among themselves how they may lay snares, and say that no one shall see them.

6 They imagine wickedness, and practice a cunning plot;*

for the human heart and mind are very deep.

7 But God shall suddenly shoot at them with a swift arrow,*

and they shall be wounded.

8 Indeed, their own tongues shall make them fall,*

so that all who see them shall laugh them to scorn.

9 And all shall fear and tell what God has done,*

for they shall perceive that it is his work.

10 The righteous shall rejoice in the Lord and put their trust in him,*

and all who are true of heart shall be glad.

Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit; *

as it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be, world without end. Amen.

The First Lesson

Deuteronomy 13

The lesson is read, the people sitting

Reader A reading from the Book of Deuteronomy, beginning with the thirteenth chapter, the first verse

13 “If a prophet or a dreamer of dreams arises among you and gives you a sign or a wonder, and the sign or wonder that he tells you comes to pass, and if he says, ‘Let us go after other gods,’ which you have not known, ‘and let us serve them,’ you shall not listen to the words of that prophet or that dreamer of dreams. For the Lord your God is testing you, to know whether you love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul. You shall walk after the Lord your God and fear him and keep his commandments and obey his voice, and you shall serve him and hold fast to him. But that prophet or that dreamer of dreams shall be put to death, because he has taught rebellion against the Lord your God, who brought you out of the land of Egypt and redeemed you out of the house of slavery, to make you leave the way in which the Lord your God commanded you to walk. So you shall purge the evil from your midst.

“If your brother, the son of your mother, or your son or your daughter or the wife you embrace or your friend who is as your own soul entices you secretly, saying, ‘Let us go and serve other gods,’ which neither you nor your fathers have known, some of the gods of the peoples who are around you, whether near you or far off from you, from the one end of the earth to the other, you shall not yield to him or listen to him, nor shall your eye pity him, nor shall you spare him, nor shall you conceal him. But you shall kill him. Your hand shall be first against him to put him to death, and afterward the hand of all the people. 10 You shall stone him to death with stones, because he sought to draw you away from the Lord your God, who brought you out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of slavery. 11 And all Israel shall hear and fear and never again do any such wickedness as this among you.

12 “If you hear in one of your cities, which the Lord your God is giving you to dwell there, 13 that certain worthless fellows have gone out among you and have drawn away the inhabitants of their city, saying, ‘Let us go and serve other gods,’ which you have not known, 14 then you shall inquire and make search and ask diligently. And behold, if it be true and certain that such an abomination has been done among you, 15 you shall surely put the inhabitants of that city to the sword, devoting it to destruction, all who are in it and its cattle, with the edge of the sword. 16 You shall gather all its spoil into the midst of its open square and burn the city and all its spoil with fire, as a whole burnt offering to the Lord your God. It shall be a heap forever. It shall not be built again. 17 None of the devoted things shall stick to your hand, that the Lord may turn from the fierceness of his anger and show you mercy and have compassion on you and multiply you, as he swore to your fathers, 18 if you obey the voice of the Lord your God, keeping all his commandments that I am commanding you today, and doing what is right in the sight of the Lord your God.

CANTEMUS DOMINO

The Song of Moses

The following Canticle is sung or said, all standing

I will sing to the LORD, for he is lofty and uplifted; *

the horse and its rider has he hurled into the sea.

The LORD is my strength and my refuge; *

the LORD has become my Savior.

This is my God and I will praise him, *

the God of my people and I will exalt him.

The LORD is a mighty warrior; *

The LORD is his Name.

The chariots of Pharaoh and his army has he hurled into the sea; *

the finest of those who bear armor have been drowned in the Red Sea.

The fathomless deep has overwhelmed them; *

they sank into the depths like a stone.

Your right hand, O LORD, is glorious in might; *

your right hand, O LORD, has overthrown the enemy.

Who can be compared with you, O LORD, among the gods? *

Who is like you, glorious in holiness, awesome in renown, and worker of wonders?

You stretched forth your right hand; *

the earth swallowed them up.

With your constant love you led the people you redeemed; *

you brought them in safety to your holy dwelling.

You will bring them in and plant them *

on the mount of your possession,

The resting-place you have made for yourself, O LORD, *

the sanctuary, O LORD, that your hand has established.

The LORD shall reign *

for ever and for ever.

EXODUS 15:1-6, 11-13, 17-18

Reader A reading from the Gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ according to St. Luke, beginning with the seventh chapter, the thirty-sixth verse

A Sinful Woman Forgiven

36 One of the Pharisees asked him to eat with him, and he went into the Pharisee's house and reclined at table. 37 And behold, a woman of the city, who was a sinner, when she learned that he was reclining at table in the Pharisee's house, brought an alabaster flask of ointment, 38 and standing behind him at his feet, weeping, she began to wet his feet with her tears and wiped them with the hair of her head and kissed his feet and anointed them with the ointment. 39 Now when the Pharisee who had invited him saw this, he said to himself, “If this man were a prophet, he would have known who and what sort of woman this is who is touching him, for she is a sinner.” 40 And Jesus answering said to him, “Simon, I have something to say to you.” And he answered, “Say it, Teacher.”

41 “A certain moneylender had two debtors. One owed five hundred denarii, and the other fifty. 42 When they could not pay, he cancelled the debt of both. Now which of them will love him more?” 43 Simon answered, “The one, I suppose, for whom he cancelled the larger debt.” And he said to him, “You have judged rightly.” 44 Then turning toward the woman he said to Simon, “Do you see this woman? I entered your house; you gave me no water for my feet, but she has wet my feet with her tears and wiped them with her hair. 45 You gave me no kiss, but from the time I came in she has not ceased to kiss my feet. 46 You did not anoint my head with oil, but she has anointed my feet with ointment. 47 Therefore I tell you, her sins, which are many, are forgiven—for she loved much. But he who is forgiven little, loves little.” 48 And he said to her, “Your sins are forgiven.” 49 Then those who were at table with him began to say among themselves, “Who is this, who even forgives sins?” 50 And he said to the woman, “Your faith has saved you; go in peace.”

by giving up our selves to your service,

and by walking before you

in holiness and righteousness all our days;

Through Jesus Christ our Lord,

to whom, with you and the Holy Spirit,

be honor and glory throughout all ages. Amen.

A PRAYER OF ST. JOHN CHRYSOSTOM

Almighty God, you have given us grace at this time, with one accord to make our common supplications to you; and you have promised through your well-beloved Son that when two or three are gathered together in his Name you will grant their requests: Fulfill now, O Lord, our desires and petitions as may be best for us; granting us in this world knowledge of your truth, and in the age to come life everlasting.

Amen.
