SS PETER AND PAUL

PRAYING WITH THE CHURCH AT HOME

Introduction to the Prayer

O God, come to our aid.

O Lord, make haste to help us.

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.  Alleluia.

THE PSALMS                           Psalm 115.(116B)

I have prayed for you, Peter, that your faith may not fail; and when you have repented, you must strengthen your brothers.

Golden Bull Pope Leo X. The obverse. Depicts Peter and Paul ...I trusted, even when I said:
‘I am sorely afflicted,’
and when I said in my alarm:

‘No man can be trusted.’

How can I repay the Lord
for his goodness to me?
The cup of salvation I will raise;
I will call on the Lord’s name.

My vows to the Lord I will fulfil
before all his people.
O precious in the eyes of the Lord
is the death of his faithful.

Your servant, Lord, your servant am I;
you have loosened my bonds.
A thanksgiving sacrifice I make;
I will call on the Lord’s name.

My vows to the Lord I will fulfil
before all his people,
in the courts of the house of the Lord,
in your midst, O Jerusalem.

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.

Ut In Omnibus Glorificetur Deus - ALL SAINTS TWICKENHAMI have prayed for you, Peter, that your faith may not fail; and when you have repented, you must strengthen your brothers.

Scripture Reading                                2 Timothy 4:6-8,17-18

All there is to come now is the crown of righteousness reserved for me

My life is already being poured away as a libation, and the time has come for me to be gone.  I have fought the good fight to the end; I have run the race to the finish; I have kept the faith; all there is to come now is the crown of righteousness reserved for me, which the Lord, the righteous judge, will give to me on that Day; and not only to me but to all those who have longed for his Appearing.

The Lord stood by me and gave me power, so that through me the whole message might be proclaimed for all the pagans to hear; and so I was rescued from the lion’s mouth.  The Lord will rescue me from all evil attempts on me, and bring me safely to his heavenly kingdom.  To him be glory for ever and ever. Amen.

A time of silence may follow to reflect on God’s word.

The Gospel Canticle

Every hair on your head has been counted. So there is no need to be afraid,’ says the Lord

The Benedictus

Blessed be the Lord,+ the God of Israel!

He has visited his people and redeemed them.

He has raised up for us a mighty saviour
in the house of David his servant,
as he promised by the lips of holy men,
those who were his prophets from of old.

A saviour who would free us from our foes,
from the hands of all who hate us.
So his love for our fathers is fulfilled
and his holy covenant remembered.

He swore to Abraham our father to grant us,
that free from fear, and saved from the hands of our foes, that we might serve him in holiness and justice
all the days of our life in his presence.

As for you, little child,
you shall be called a prophet of God, the Most High.
You shall go ahead of the Lord
to prepare his ways before him,

To make known to his people their salvation
through forgiveness of all their sins,
the loving-kindness of the heart of our God
It who visits us like the dawn from on high.

He will give light to those in darkness,
those who dwell in the shadow of death,.
and guide us 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.

Peter the apostle and Paul the teacher of the nations taught us your law, Lord.

 

Prayers and Intercessions.

Other petitions may be added to those given.

We pray to Christ who built his Church on the foundation of the apostles and prophets.

 Lord, be with your people.

Simon the fisherman was called by you to be a fisher of men:

call others today to share in his task.

Lord, be with your people.

When the disciples feared that the ship was sinking, you commanded the sea and there was calm:

protect your Church in the midst of trouble, and give her the peace that the world cannot give.

Lord, be with your people.

.After your resurrection you gathered your Church around Peter:

gather all your people now into the unity for which you prayed.

Lord, be with your people.

You sent Paul as an apostle to all mankind:

let your good news be preached today through all creation.

Lord, be with your people.

You entrusted the keys of your kingdom to your Church:

open the gates of life to the dead who put their trust in you.

Lord, be with your people.

A time of silent prayer may follow.

Please remember these people in your prayers

Our Father, who art in heaven,
hallowed be thy name.
Thy kingdom come.
Thy will be done on earth, as it is in heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread,
and forgive us our trespasses,
as we forgive those who trespass against us,
and lead us not into temptation,
but deliver us from evil.    Amen.

The Collect of the Sunday is then said.

O God, who on the Solemnity of the Apostles Peter and Paul

give us the noble and holy joy of this day,

grant, we pray, that your Church

may in all things follow the teaching

of those through whom she received

the beginnings of right religion.

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 Lord bless us, and keep us from all evil, and bring us to everlasting life.

Amen.

A SPIRITUAL COMMUNION.

Even if we cannot be at mass and receive Holy Communion, we can always make a Spiritual Communion. God will always fill our hearts with his grace if we ask.

If you are in church on Sunday Morning the Blessed Sacrament will be on the high Altar – look at the Blessed Sacrament while you say this Prayer. Jesus is there.

My Jesus, 
I believe that You
are present in the Most Holy Sacrament. 
I love You above all things, 
and I desire to receive You into my soul. 
Since I cannot at this moment
receive You sacramentally, 
come at least spiritually into my heart. I embrace You as if You were already there and unite myself wholly to You.  Never permit me to be separated from You.   Amen.
