Wednesday in Holy Week

8 04 2009

Lord God, whose blessed Son our Saviour gave his body to be whipped and his face to be spit upon:  Give us grace to accept joyfully the sufferings of the present time, confident of the glory that shall be revealed; through Jesus Christ your Son our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever.  Amen.

——Book of Common Prayer, Wednesday of Holy Week

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:

Holy Holy Holy Lord God of power and might, Heaven and earth are full of your glory

Hosanna in the highest! Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord! Hosanna in the highest!

Holy and gracious Father:  In your infinite love you made us for yourself; and, when we had fallen into sin and become subject to evil and death, you, in your mercy, sent Jesus Christ, your only and eternal Son, to share our human nature, to live and die as one of us, to reconcile us to you, the God and Father of all.

He stretched out his arms upon the cross, and offered himself, in obedience to your will, a perfect sacrifice for the whole world.

——Book of Common Prayer, Eucharistic Prayer A, Rite II
