Greeting and Doxology

Psalm 104:24-35
Feed us with the bread of your word, O God.

God how fertile your genius!
You shape each thing
you fill the world
with what you do.

I watch the sea, wide and deep,
filled with fish, large and small,
with ships that ply their trade,
and your own toy, Leviathan.

All look to you for food
when they hunger;
you provide it and they feed.
You open your hand, they feast;
you turn away, they fear.

You steal their breath,
they drop back into dust.
Breathe into them, they rise;
the face of the earth comes alive!

Let God’s glory endure
and the Lord delight in creating.
One look from God, earth quivers;
one touch, and mountains erupt.

I will sing to my God,
make music for the Lord
as long as I live.
Let my song give joy to God
who is a joy to me.
Rid the world of sinners,
rid it of evil!

I will bless you, Lord!

Reading: Isaiah 55:1-3a, 10-11

Everyone who thirsts, come to the waters;
and you that have no money, come, buy and eat!
Come, bye wine and milk without money and without price.
Why do you spend your money for that which does not satisfy?
Listen carefully to me, and eat what is good, and delight yourself in rich food.
Incline your ear, and come to me; listen, so that you may live.
For as the rain and the snow come down from heaven,
and do not return there until they have watered the earth,
making it bring forth and sprout,
giving seed to the sower and bread to the eater,
so shall my word be that goes out from my mouth;
it shall not return empty,
but it shall accomplish that which I purpose,
and succeed in the thing for which I sent it.

Not knowing what to do I lift my eyes to you, O saving Lord.

I acclaim the greatness of the Lord,
I delight in God my savior,
who regarded my humble state.
Truly from this day on All ages will call me blest.

For God, wonderful in power,
has used that strength for me.
Holy the name of the Lord!
Whose mercy embraces the faithful,
one generation to the next.

The mighty arm of God
scatters the proud in their conceit,
Pulls tyrants from their thrones,
and raises up the humble.
The Lord fills the starving
And lets the rich go hungry.

God rescues lowly Israel,
recalling the promise of mercy,
the promise made to our ancestors,
to Abraham’s heirs for ever.


God calls us to life in abundance. Let us praise and thank God, and let us make known our needs:

Jesus our way, our truth and our life, hear and answer our prayer.

For all who hold and teach the Catholic faith, that they may never grow weary of proclaiming the value of all life, let us pray:

For the leaders of world government, that they may consciously choose life-giving solutions to societal problems, let us pray:

For those who are sick, that they may find healing of body and spirit and for all who serve in the role of parents, that they may see God’s good creation in the gift of children, let us pray:

For all who mourn the loss of a loved one, that they may find comfort in the certainty of the resurrection, let us pray:


Jesus, you are the bread that gives life. You fed the multitude when they hungered. Feed us now with the bread that sustains our hope. As you supply our need, let us be bread for your people. We ask this in your name. Amen

May God’s blessing be upon us. Amen
May God’s light lead us in the way of Righteousness. Amen.
May our lives be patterned on Christ Jesus. Amen.
