Feast of the Holy Trinity
Morning Prayer


God to guide me, God to teach me.
God to protect me by night and by day.
God, Holy Trinity in love unending,
glory to you forever and ever.


Psalm 147 1-11

Great is our God and powerful, wise beyond all telling.

How good to sing God praise!
How lovely the sound!

The Lord rebuilds Jerusalem
and gathers the exiles of Israel,
healing the brokenhearted,
binding their aching wounds.

God fixes the number of stars,
calling each by name.
Great is our God and powerful,
wise beyond all telling.
The Lord upholds the poor
but lets the wicked fall.

Sing thanks to the Lord,
sound the harp for our God.
The Lord stretches the clouds,
sending rain to the earth,
clothing mountains with green.

The Lord feeds the cattle
and young ravens when they call.
A horse’s strength, a runner’s speed--
they count for nothing!
The Lord favors the reverent,
those who trust in God’s mercy.

Ephesians 1: 3-10

Alleluia! Salvation, glory and power to God! Alleluia!

Bless God, the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ,
who blessed us from heaven through Christ
with every blessing of the Spirit.

Before laying the world’s foundation,
God chose us in Christ
to live a pure and holy life.

God determined out of love
to adopt us through Jesus Christ
for the praise and glory of that grace
granted us in the Beloved.

By Christ’s blood we were redeemed,
our sins forgiven
through extravagant love.

With perfect wisdom and insight
God freely displayed the mystery
of what was always intended:
a plan for the fullness of time
to unite the entire universe through Christ.

Reading: Romans 11: 33-36

O the depth of the riches and wisdom and knowledge of God! How unsearchable are his judgments and how inscrutable his ways! “For who has known the mind of the Lord? Or who has been his counselor? Or who has given a gift to him, to receive a gift in return?” For from him and through him and to him are all things. To him be the glory forever. Amen.

Canticle of Zechariah

We bow before the mystery hidden for ages in God who created all things.

Praise the Lord, the God of Israel,
who shepherds the people and
sets them free.

God raises from David’s house
a child with
power to save.
Through the holy prophets
God promised in
ages past
to save us from enemy hands,
from the grip of
all who hate us.

The Lord favored our ancestors
recalling the
sacred covenant,
the pledge to our an
cestor Abraham,
to free us
from our enemies,
so we might worship without fear
and be holy and just
all our days.

And you child, will be called
Prophet of
the Most High,
for you will come to prepare
a pathway
for the Lord
by teaching the peo
ple salvation
through forgiveness
of their sin.

Out of God’s deepest mercy
a dawn will come
from on high,
light for those sha
dowed by death,
a guide for our feet on the
way to peace.


Catherine McAuley taught us that with the pure intention of pleasing God even the ordinary actions of every day can be full of God, breathe of God, shine with God, be fragrant with God.
As we greet this dawning fay, gracious God:
--May our ordinary actions be full of love.
As we rise:
--May our hearts be filled with thanksgiving.
As we go about the business of our lives:
--May we see you in each person we serve.
As we come before you in prayer:
--May we be open and responsive to your Spirit.
As we strive to be women of peace in moments of conflict:
--May we search for the guiding presence of your truth.
As we come together in community:
--May we refuse no kindness or mercy to our sisters.
As we share food at our table:
--May we welcome the stranger and the outcast.
As we come to this day’s end:
May we lie down to rest, trusting in your faithfulness.

Our Father


Faithful God, you have revealed yourself to us in Jesus. Through the power of your Spirit you come to us and abide with us. We, your children, stand in awe of your boundless love. You have given us Jesus to be our way, truth and life. May we daily come to know him more fully, love him more deeply and follow him more nearly. This we ask of you, Holy Trinity, Undivided Unity. Amen.


May the inexhaustible creativity of God reach out to us. Amen.
May the humble generosity of God abide with us. Amen.
May the ardent charity of God renew and animate us. Amen
