PRELUDE Wer nur den lieben Gott (‘If thou but trust in God to guide thee’)

Johann Gottfried Walther (1684-1748)

A bell sounds. All stand as they are able.

ENTRANCE HYMN 390 · Lobe den Herren (see pg 16)


Ambrosian chant



Celebrant The Lord be with you. People And also with you.

Celebrant Let us pray.

O God, you have taught us to keep all your commandments by loving you and our neighbor: Grant us the grace of your Holy Spirit, that we may be devoted to you with our whole heart, and united to one another with pure affection; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.

All are seated.

THE FIRST LESSON Ezekiel 2:1-5

The Lord said to me: O mortal, stand up on your feet, and I will speak with you. And when he spoke to me, a spirit entered into me and set me on my feet; and I heard him speaking to me. He said to me, Mortal, I am sending you to the people of Israel, to a nation of rebels who have rebelled against me; they and their ancestors have transgressed against me to this very day. The descendants are impudent and stubborn. I am sending you to them, and you shall say to them, “Thus says the Lord God.” Whether they hear or refuse to hear (for they are a rebellious house), they shall know that there has been a prophet among them.

Reader The Word of the Lord. People Thanks be to God.

All remain seated for the psalm. The refrain is intoned by a cantor, then repeated by the congregation and sung as indicated.

Plainsong, Mode II

To you I lift up my eyes, * to you enthroned in the heavens. Refrain

As the eyes of servants look to the hand of their masters, * and the eyes of a maid to the hand of her mistress, So our eyes look to the Lord our God, * until he show us his mercy. Refrain

Have mercy upon us, O Lord, have mercy, * for we have had more than enough of contempt, Too much of the scorn of the indolent rich, * and of the derision of the proud. Refrain

THE SECOND LESSON 2 Corinthians 12:2-10

I know a person in Christ who fourteen years ago was caught up to the third heaven—whether in the body or out of the body I do not know; God knows. And I know that such a person—whether in the body or out of the body I do not know; God knows— was caught up into Paradise and heard things that are not to be told, that no mortal is permitted to repeat. On behalf of such a one I will boast, but on my own behalf I will not boast, except of my weaknesses. But if I wish to boast, I will not be a fool, for I will be speaking the truth. But I refrain from it, so that no one may think better of me than what is seen in me or heard from me, even considering the exceptional character of the revelations. Therefore, to keep me from being too elated, a thorn was given me in the flesh, a messenger of Satan to torment me, to keep

me from being too elated. Three times I appealed to the Lord about this, that it would leave me, but he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for power is made perfect in weakness.” So, I will boast all the more gladly of my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ may dwell in me. Therefore I am content with weaknesses, insults, hardships, persecutions, and calamities for the sake of Christ; for whenever I am weak, then I am strong.

Reader The Word of the Lord. People Thanks be to God.

SEQUENCE HYMN 635 · Wer nur den lieben Gott (see pg 17) Sung by all, standing.


Deacon The Holy Gospel of Our Lord Jesus Christ according to Mark. People Glory to you, Lord Christ.

Jesus came to his hometown, and his disciples followed him. On the sabbath he began to teach in the synagogue, and many who heard him were astounded. They said, “Where did this man get all this? What is this wisdom that has been given to him? What deeds of power are being done by his hands! Is not this the carpenter, the son of Mary and brother of James and Joses and Judas and Simon, and are not his sisters here with us?” And they took offense at him. Then Jesus said to them, “Prophets are not without honor, except in their hometown, and among their own kin, and in their own house.” And he could do no deed of power there, except that he laid his hands on a few sick people and cured them. And he was amazed at their unbelief. Then he went about among the villages teaching. He called the twelve and began to send them out two by two, and gave them authority over the unclean spirits. He ordered them to take nothing for their journey except a staff; no bread, no bag, no money in their belts; but to wear sandals and not to put on two tunics. He said to them, “Wherever you enter a house, stay there until you leave the place. If any place will not welcome you and they refuse to hear you, as you leave, shake off the dust that is on your feet as

a testimony against them.” So they went out and proclaimed that all should repent. They cast out many demons, and anointed with oil many who were sick and cured them.

Deacon The Gospel of the Lord. People Praise to you, Lord Christ.

THE SERMON The Reverend Andrew Ancona

NICENE CREED Plainsong, Mode V



The Deacon reads the intercessions for the parish. Then the leader says With all our heart and with all our mind, let us pray to the Lord, saying, “Lord, have mercy.”

Lord, have mercy.

That we may end our lives in faith and hope, without suffering and without reproach, let us pray to the Lord.

Lord, have mercy.

In the communion of the Blessed Virgin Mary, holy mother of God, Saint Luke, our patron and of all the saints, let us commend ourselves, and one another, and all our life, to Christ our God.

To you, O Lord our God.

The Celebrant concludes with a Collect.


Deacon Let us confess our sins against God and our neighbor.

The People kneel or bow. All say Most merciful God, we confess that we have sinned against you in thought, word, and deed, by what we have done, and by what we have left undone. We have not loved you with our whole heart; we have not loved our neighbors as ourselves. We are truly sorry and we humbly repent. For the sake of your Son Jesus Christ, have mercy on us and forgive us; that we may delight in your will, and walk in your ways, to the glory of your Name. Amen.

The Celebrant says Almighty God have mercy on you, forgive you all your sins through our Lord Jesus Christ, strengthen you in all goodness, and by the power of the Holy Spirit keep you in eternal life. Amen.


Celebrant The peace of the Lord be always with you. People And also with you.

Then the Ministers and People greet each other in the name of the Lord.


Harvey Burgett (1944-2022)

Create in me a clean heart, O God; and a new and right spirit within me. Cast me not away from thy presence; and take not thy holy spirit from me. O Lord, open thou my lips; and my mouth shall shew forth thy praise. Amen.

OFFERTORY HYMN · Wonder, Love and Praise 780 (Abbot’s Leigh) (see pg 18) All stand.


Eucharistic Prayer A, The Book of Common Prayer, p. 361

The Celebrant continues: It is right, and a good and joyful thing, always and everywhere to give thanks to you, Father Almighty, Creator of heaven and earth through Jesus Christ our Lord; who on the first day of the week overcame death and the grave, and by his glorious resurrection opened to us the way of everlasting life. Therefore we praise you, joining our voices with Angels and Archangels and with all the company of heaven, who for ever sing this hymn to proclaim the glory of your Name.


Robert Powell

Hymnal S129

All are invited to stand or kneel while the Eucharistic Prayer is read by the Celebrant. Midway through the Eucharistic Prayer, the Celebrant says Therefore we proclaim the mystery of faith;

Celebrant and People Christ has died. Christ is risen. Christ will come again. The Celebrant concludes. By him, and with him, and in him, in the unity of the Holy Spirit all honor and glory is yours, Almighty Father, now and for ever. Amen.

If you are not baptized, or do not wish to receive, you are encouraged to come forward for a blessing. Signal this by crossing your arms across your chest.


Gabriel Fauré (1845-1924)

Ave verum corpus natum de Maria Virgine; Vere passum immolatum in cruce pro homine: Ave verum corpus natum de Maria Virgine; Cujus latus perforatum fluxit aqua et sanguine. Esto nobis praegustatum mortis in examine. O Jesu dulcis, O Jesu pie, O Jesu, fili mariae.

Hail, true body, born of the Virgin Mary; True victim, sacrificed on the cross for mankind; Hail, true body, born of the Virgin Mary; From whose wounded side flowed water and blood. Be for us a foretaste of the heavenly kingdom in the hour of our death. O sweet Jesu, O blessed Jesu, O Jesu, son of Mary.

POSTCOMMUNION HYMN 347 · Litton (see pg 20) Sung by all, standing.


Said by all.

Eternal God, heavenly Father, you have graciously accepted us as living members of your Son our Savior Jesus Christ, and you have fed us with spiritual food in the Sacrament of his Body and Blood.
