THE GOSPEL

John 18:33b-37

For this was I born and for this I came into the world,
to testify to the truth.

Oh Jesus,
before you came
we only guessed at the truth.

We did not know that God loved the poor,
that God healed the brokenhearted,
the sick and the distressed.
Nor that God
would offer his
very Son
 for our
  sake.

Yours is the
 kingdom of love.
Help us testify with you
 to this loving
  truth.


THE FIRST READING

Daniel 7:13-14

… All peoples, nations, and languages serve him.

Christ,
perfect ruler,
source of perfect peace and justice:
reign now and forever
 over all peoples,
languages,
nations;
over 
our 
 hearts.

Amen.

THE SECOND READING
Revelation 1:5-8

“I am the Alpha and the Omega,” says the Lord God,
“the one who is and who was and who is to come, the almighty.”

Jesus, 
please be the
beginning and end
 of our every day, 
every project, 
every prayer, 
every peril, 
every love, 
all that we do 
and all that we are.
