Grant them eternal rest, O Lord and let perpetual light shine upon them. It is fitting to sing a hymn to you, O Lord, on Mount Zion, and to you must vows be fulfilled in Jerusalem. Hear my prayer, for to you all flesh must come.

Ezekiel 3:17-21

A reading from the Book of the Prophet Ezekiel The word of the LORD came to me: Son of man, I have appointed you a watchman for the house of Israel. When you hear a word from my mouth, you shall warn them for me. If I say to the wicked man, you shall surely die; and you do not warn him or speak out to dissuade him from his wicked conduct so that he may live: the wicked man shall die for his sins, but I will hold you responsible for his death. If, on the other hand, you have warned the wicked man, yet he has not turned away from his evil nor from his wicked conduct, then he shall die for his sin, but you shall save your life. If a virtuous man turns away from virtue and does wrong when I place a stumbling block before him, he shall die. He shall die for his sin, and his virtuous deeds shall not be remembered; but I will hold you responsible for his death if you did not warn him. When, on the other hand, you have warned a virtuous man not to sin, and he has in fact not sinned, he shall surely live because of the warning, and you shall save your own life. The word of the Lord. R/ Thanks be to God. 9

Responsorial Psalm

Gospel Acclamation


The Lord sent me to bring glad tidings to the poor and to proclaim liberty to captives. R/



Matthew 9:35–10:1

@ A reading from the holy Gospel according to Matthew

R/ Glory to you, Lord. Jesus went around to all the towns and villages, teaching in their synagogues, proclaiming the Gospel of the Kingdom, and curing every disease and illness. At the sight of the crowds, his heart was moved with pity for them because they were troubled and abandoned, like sheep without a shepherd. Then he said to his disciples, “The harvest is abundant but the laborers are few; so ask the master of the harvest to send out laborers for his harvest.” Then he summoned his twelve disciples and gave them authority over unclean spirits to drive them out and to cure every disease and every illness. The Gospel of the Lord.

R/ Praise to you, Lord Jesus Christ.

Come, my Way, my Truth, my Life; Such a Way, as gives us breath; Such a Truth, as ends all strife; Such a Life, as killeth death. Come, my Light, my Feast, my Strength; Such a Light, as shows a Feast; Such a Feast, as mends in length; Such a Strength, as makes his guest. Come, my Joy, my Love, my Heart; Such a Joy, as none can move; Such a Love, as none can part; Such a Heart, as joys in love.

Deutsche Messe Franz Schubert (1797-1828)


Guidelines for the Reception of Communion For Catholics: As Catholics, we fully participate in the celebration of the Eucharist when we receive Holy Communion. We are encouraged to receive Communion devoutly and frequently. In order to be properly disposed to receive Communion, participants should not be conscious of grave sin and normally should have fasted for one hour. A person who is conscious of grave sin is not to receive the Body and Blood of the Lord without prior sacramental confession except for a grave reason where there is no opportunity for confession. In this case, the person is to be mindful of the obligation to make an act of perfect contrition, including the intention of confessing as soon as possible (canon 916). A frequent reception of the Sacrament of Penance is encouraged for all. For our fellow Christians: We welcome our fellow Christians to this celebration of the Eucharist as our brothers and sisters. We pray that our common baptism and the action of the Holy Spirit in this Eucharist will draw us closer to one another and begin to dispel the sad divisions which separate us. We pray that these will lessen and finally disappear, in keeping with Christ’s prayer for us “that they may all be one” (Jn 17:21). Because Catholics believe that the celebration of the Eucharist is a sign of the reality of the oneness of faith, life, and worship, members of those churches with whom we are not yet fully united are ordinarily not admitted to Holy Communion. Eucharistic sharing in exceptional circumstances by other Christians requires permission according to the directives of the diocesan bishop and the provisions of canon law (canon 844 § 4). Members of the Orthodox Churches, the Assyrian Church of the East, and the Polish National Catholic Church are urged to respect the discipline of their own Churches. According to Roman Catholic discipline, the Code of Canon Law does not object to the reception of communion by Christians of these Churches (canon 844 § 3). For those not receiving Holy Communion: All who are not receiving Holy Communion are encouraged to express in their hearts a prayerful desire for unity with the Lord Jesus and with one another. For non-Christians: We also welcome to this celebration those who do not share our faith in Jesus Christ. While we cannot admit them to Holy Communion, we ask them to offer their prayers for the peace and the unity of the human family.

FATHER MICHAEL J. McGIVNEY MEMORIAL CHALICE In 1990, to commemorate the centennial of Father Michael J. McGivney’s death, the Knights of Columbus Board of Directors commissioned a memorial chalice. The chalice was crafted by Giansanti Artistic Jewelers, a prestigious jewelry concern in Rome, Italy. The 18-karat, solid-gold chalice features a node in the form of a globe that depicts the Old and New Worlds, signifying that Christopher Columbus brought the faith from Europe on his voyage of discovery and evangelization in 1492. A medallion at the base of the chalice bears the likeness of Father McGivney. First used at the Memorial Mass during the 108th Supreme Convention in San Antonio, Texas, the McGivney Chalice is used at major Orderwide liturgies. Most notably, the McGivney Chalice was used by Pope John Paul II during the Papal Mass co-sponsored by the Order and the Diocese of Brooklyn in 1995. Under the base of the chalice is the emblem of the Order and the inscription: The Knights of Columbus commissioned this chalice to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the death of its founder, Father Michael J. McGivney, August 14, 1990. 42

ACKNOWLEDGMENTS The Knights of Columbus is grateful to Father Juan-Diego Brunetta, O.P., Chairman of the Liturgy Committee; Dr. Peter J. Latona; and all those who contributed to the beauty of this liturgy.
