b the reign of our God and the authority of his Anointed One.
C For the accuser of our brothers is cast out,

5
D who night and day accused them before God.

C So rejoice, you heavens,
D and you that dwell therein!

a Glory to the Father, and to the Son,


b and to the Holy Spirit:
C As it was in the beginning, is now,
D and will be forever. Amen.

READING | 1 PETER 3:18, 22


Then the reader goes to the ambo and proclaims the Reading, while all sit and listen.

A reading from the first letter of Saint Peter


The reason why Christ died for sins once for all, the
just man for the sake of the unjust, was that he might
lead you to God. He was put to death insofar as fleshly
existence goes, but was given life in the realm of the
spirit. He went to heaven and is at God’s right hand,
with angelic rulers and powers subjected to him.
The Word of the Lord.
The people reply: Thanks be to God.

The people stand. The priest goes to the altar and puts some incense on the censer. He then incenses the
Blessed Sacrament.

ANTIPHON:
I am the living bread come down from heaven;
anyone who eats this bread will live for ever;
the bread that I will give is my flesh,
for the life of the world, alleluia.
CANTICLE OF MARY: LUKE 1:46-55
The soul rejoices in the Lord
All make the sign of the cross.

My soul proclaims the greatness of the Lord,


my spirit rejoices in God my Sa2vior
for he has looked with favor on his lowly ser2vant.
From this day all generations will call me blessed:
the Almighty has done great things for me,
and holy is his Name.
He has mercy on those who fear him
in every genera2tion.
He has shown the strength of his arm,
he has scattered the proud in their conceit.
He has cast down the mighty from their thrones,
and has lifted up the low2ly.
He has filled the hungry with good things,
and the rich he has sent away emp2ty.
He has come to the help of his servant Israel
for he has remembered his promise of mer2cy,
the promise he made to our fathers,
to Abraham and his children for e2ver.
Glory to the Father, and to the Son,
and to the Holy Spi2rit:
as it was in the beginning, is now,
and will be for ever. A2men.
