LITURGY OF THE WORD First Reading
A reading from the Book of Numbers
Miriam and Aaron spoke against Moses on the pretext of the marriage he had contracted with a Cushite woman. They complained, “Is it through Moses alone that the LORD speaks? Does he not speak through us also?” And the LORD heard this. Now, Moses himself was by far the meekest man on the face of the earth. So at once the LORD said to Moses and Aaron and Miriam, “Come out, you three, to the meeting tent.” And the three of them went. Then the LORD came down in the column of cloud, and standing at the entrance of the tent, called Aaron and Miriam. When both came forward, he said, “Now listen to the words of the LORD: Should there be a prophet among you, in visions will I reveal myself to him, in dreams will I speak to him; not so with my servant Moses! Throughout my house he bears my trust: face to face I speak to him; plainly and not in riddles. The presence of the LORD he beholds. Why, then, did you not fear to speak against my servant Moses?” So angry was the LORD against them that when he departed, and the cloud withdrew from the tent, there was Miriam, a snow-white leper! When Aaron turned and saw her a leper, he said to Moses, “Ah, my lord! 8
Please do not charge us with the sin that we have foolishly committed! Let her not thus be like the stillborn babe that comes forth from its mother’s womb with its flesh half consumed.” Then Moses cried to the LORD, “Please, not this! Pray, heal her!” The word of the Lord. R/ Thanks be to God.
Psalm 51 Peter J. Latona (b.1968)
Have mercy on me, O God, in your goodness; in the greatness of your compassion wipe out my offense. Thoroughly wash me from my guilt and of my sin cleanse me. R/ For I acknowledge my offense; and my sin is before me always: “Against you only have I sinned; and done what is evil in your sight.” R/ That you may be justified in your sentence, vindicated when you condemn. Indeed, in guilt was I born, and in sin my mother conceived me. R/ A clean heart create for me, O God, and a steadfast spirit renew within me. Cast me not off from your presence, and your Holy Spirit take not from me. R/ 9
Rabbi, you are the Son of God; you are the King of Israel. R/
@ A reading from the holy Gospel according to Matthew
R/ Glory to you, Lord. Jesus made the disciples get into a boat and precede him to the other side of the sea, while he dismissed the crowds. After doing so, he went up on the mountain by himself to pray. When it was evening he was there alone. Meanwhile the boat, already a few miles offshore, was being tossed about by the waves, for the wind was against it. During the fourth watch of the night, he came toward them, walking on the sea. When the disciples saw him walking on the sea they were terrified. “It is a ghost,” they said, and they cried out in fear. At once Jesus spoke to them, “Take courage, it is I; do not be afraid.” Peter said to him in reply, “Lord, if it is you, command me to come to you on the water.” He said, “Come.” Peter got out of the boat and began to walk on the water toward Jesus. But 10
when he saw how strong the wind was he became frightened; and, beginning to sink, he cried out, “Lord, save me!” Immediately Jesus stretched out his hand and caught him, and said to him, “O you of little faith, why did you doubt?” After they got into the boat, the wind died down. Those who were in the boat did him homage, saying, “Truly, you are the Son of God.” After making the crossing, they came to land at Gennesaret. When the men of that place recognized him, they sent word to all the surrounding country. People brought to him all those who were sick and begged him that they might touch only the tassel on his cloak, and as many as touched it were healed. The Gospel of the Lord.
R/ Praise to you, Lord Jesus Christ.
Most Rev. Charles J. Chaput, O.F.M. Cap. Archbishop-designate of Philadelphia Diocesan Administrator of Denver
For our Holy Father, Pope Benedict XVI, for Archbishop Charles Chaput, and for all the Successors to the Apostles, particularly those present here: that the Holy Spirit will inspire them as they lead the pilgrim Church on earth. R/ In Tagalog: For our civic leaders: that God will guide them in safeguarding peace and the common good of all, particularly the unborn, the aged and all those whose lives are threatened. R/ In French: For the Knights of Columbus: that through the workings of the 129th Supreme Convention, God will grant our Order an abundant increase of charity, unity, fraternity and patriotism. R/ In Spanish: For an increase in vocations to the priesthood and religious life: that many young people will step out in faith in response to the Lord’s command to “take courage,” to “not be afraid,” and to ‘set aside all doubts’ in taking up undivided service in Christ’s name. R/ In Polish: For the beatification of Venerable Michael McGivney: that our courageous founder may soon be raised to the dignity of the altar. R/
LITURGY OF THE EUCHARIST Offertory Motet
O How Amiable Ralph Vaughan Williams (1872-1958) Text: Psalms 84 & 90
O how amiable are thy dwellings, thou Lord of Hosts. My soul hath a desire and longing to enter into the courts of the Lord. My heart and my flesh rejoice in the living God. Yea, the sparrow hath found her an house, and the swallow a nest where she may lay her young, even thy altars, O Lord of Hosts, my King and my God. Blessed are they that dwell in thy house, they will be alway praising thee. The glorious majesty of the Lord our God be upon us: Prosper thou the work of our hands upon us. O prosper thou our handiwork. O God, our help in ages past, our hope for years to come, our shelter from the stormy blast, and our eternal home.

Draw Near and Take the Body of Your Lord
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.

Communion Meditation O Sacrum Convivium Thomas Tallis (c.1520-1585) Text: St. Thomas Aquinas (c.1227-1274)
O sacrum convivium, in quo Christus sumitur. Recolitur memoria, Passionis eius, mens impletur gratia. Et futurae gloriae nobis pignus datur.
O holy and sacred feast, wherein Christ is offered up. We call to mind in grateful thanks, his most bitter Passion, while our souls are filled with grace. We beseech thee grant to us everlasting glory.

FATHER MICHAEL J. McGIVNEY MEMORIAL CHALICE In 1990, to commemorate the centennial of Father Michael J. McGivneyâ€™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.
ACKNOWLEDGMENTS The Knights of Columbus is grateful to the Archdiocese of Denver Office of Liturgy, especially Deacon Charles Parker Jr. and John S. Miller, for their gracious collaboration in organizing this liturgy. Special thanks are also due to Father Juan-Diego Brunetta, O.P., Chairman of the Liturgy Committee; Dr. Peter J. Latona, Director of Music; and all those who contributed to the beauty of this liturgy.
