The Liturgy for Sunday 25th September 2022

TWENTY-SIXTH SUNDAY IN ORDINARY TIME

Woe to Those who Feel Safe

Amos and Luke combine to teach that self-satisfaction is not a godly virtue: we cannot rest contented with our own lot when we have brothers and sisters who are in want. Christ has shared his love with us: we must do likewise.

The Readings:

Amos 6:1.4-7

1 Timothy 6:11-16

Gospel: Luke 16:19-31

Collect:

O God, who manifest your

almighty power above all by pardoning

and showing mercy, bestow, we pray,

your grace abundantly upon us and make those hastening to attain your promises heirs

to the treasures of heaven.

Through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son, who lives and reigns with you in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.

The Liturgy for Sunday 18th September 2022

SOLEMN REQUIEM MASS 

For the repose of the soul of Her Late Majesty Queen Elizabeth ll.

Prayers:

Almighty God, you are the author

and sustainer of all human life, grant that

your servant, Elizabeth our Queen, whom you granted a long and happy reign as Monarch

of these lands, may be forgiven her sins and

rewarded with eternal life promised to those born again in the water of baptism and power of your Spirit.

Through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son, who lives and reigns with you in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.

Eternal rest, grant to her, O Lord,

And let perpetual light shine upon her.

May she rest in peace. Amen

May her soul, and the souls of all the faithful departed through the mercy of God, rest in peace. Amen.
