The Magnificat.

My soul glorifies the Lord,
My spirit rejoices in God, my Saviour.
He looks on his servant in her loneliness;
henceforth all ages will call me blessed.
The Almighty works marvels for me.
Holy his name!
His mercy is from age to age,
on those who fear him.
He puts forth his arm in strength
and scatters the proud-hearted.
He casts the mighty from their thrones
and raises the lowly.
He fills the starving with good things,
sends the rich away empty.
He protects Israel, his servant,
remembering his mercy,
the mercy promised to our fathers,
to Abraham and his sons for ever.
Amen
 

Regina Caeli 

Queen of Heaven, rejoice. Alleluia!

For he whom you were made worthy to bear. Alleluia!

Has risen as he said. Alleluia!

Pray for us to our God. Alleluia!

Rejoice and be glad, O Virgin Mary. Alleluia!

For the Lord has risen indeed. Alleluia!

Let us pray;

God, who through the resurrection of your Son, our Lord Jesus Christ,

has made glad the whole world, grant us, we pray,

that through the intercession of the Virgin Mary, his mother,

we may attain the joys of everlasting life.

Through the same Christ our Lord.

Amen.
 

Benedictus 

Blessed be the Lord, the God of Israel;

he has come to his people and set them free.

He has raised up for us a mighty saviour,

born of the house of his servant David.

Through his holy prophets he promised of old

That he would save us from our enemies,

From the hands of all who hate us.

He promised to show mercy to our fathers

and to remember his holy covenant.

This was the oath that he swore to our father Abraham:

To set us free from the hands of our enemies,

Free to worship him without fear,

Holy and righteous in his sight all the days of our life.

You, my child, shall be called the prophet of the Most High;

for you will go before the Lord to prepare his way,

to give his people knowledge of salvation

by the forgiveness of their sins.

In the tender compassion of our God

the dawn from on high shall break upon us,

to shine on those who dwell in darkness and the shadow of death,

and to guide our feet into the way of peace.

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 Magnificat 

My soul glorifies the Lord,

My spirit rejoices in God, my Saviour.

He looks on his servant in her lowliness;

henceforth all ages will call me blessed.

The Almighty works marvels for me.

Holy his name!

His mercy is from age to age,

on those who fear him.

He puts forth his arm in strength

and scatters the proud-hearted.

He casts the mighty from their thrones

and raises the lowly.

He fills the starving with good things,

sends the rich away empty.

He protects Israel, his servant,

remembering his mercy,

the mercy promised to our fathers,

to Abraham and his sons forever.

Amen.
 

Diocesan Prayer for Vocations 

Lord Jesus, send labourers into your harvest.

Inspire, in the hearts of your people,

vocations to the priesthood and religious life.

Bless our families with a spirit of generosity.

May those whom you call to the priesthood and religious life

have the courage to give themselves to your Church

as co-operators in your work.
