Collect of the Day

O God,
the protector of all who trust in you,
without whom nothing is strong, nothing is holy,
increase and multiply upon us your mercy,
that with you as our ruler and guide,
we may so pass through things temporal,
that we lose not the things eternal;
through Jesus Christ our Lord,
who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit,
one God, for ever and ever. Amen.

The Communion

Anthem: Exsultate Deo by Giovanni Pierluigi da Palestrina

Exsultate Deo adjutori nostro; jubilate Deo Jacob. Sumite psalmum, et date tympanum; psalterium jucundum cum cithara. Buccinate in neomenia tuba, in insigni die solemnitatis vestræ.

Sing joyfully to God our strength; sing loud unto the God of Jacob! Take the song, bring forth the timbrel, the pleasant harp, and the lute. Blow the trumpet in the new moon, at the time appointed for our feast day.

Prayer after Communion        

Gracious God, lover of all,

by this sacrament

you make us one family in Christ your Son,

one in the sharing of his body and blood,

one in the communion of his Spirit.

Help us to grow in love for one another

and come to the full maturity of the Body of Christ.

We ask this in his name. Amen.
