READING

 

A Reading from Paul’s First Letter to the Corinthians


For just as the body is one and has many members, and all the members of the body, though many, are one body, so it is with Christ. For in the one Spirit we were all baptized into one body—Jews or Greeks, slaves or free—and we were all made to drink of one Spirit.

Indeed, the body does not consist of one member but of many. If the foot were to say, ‘Because I am not a hand, I do not belong to the body’, that would not make it any less a part of the body. And if the ear were to say, ‘Because I am not an eye, I do not belong to the body’, that would not make it any less a part of the body. If the whole body were an eye, where would the hearing be? If the whole body were hearing, where would the sense of smell be? But as it is, God arranged the members in the body, each one of them, as he chose. If all were a single member, where would the body be? As it is, there are many members, yet one body. The eye cannot say to the hand, ‘I have no need of you’, nor again the head to the feet, ‘I have no need of you.’ On the contrary, the members of the body that seem to be weaker are indispensable, and those members of the body that we think less honourable we clothe with greater honour, and our less respectable members are treated with greater respect; whereas our more respectable members do not need this. But God has so arranged the body, giving the greater honour to the inferior member, that there may be no dissension within the body, but the members may have the same care for one another. If one member suffers, all suffer together with it; if one member is honoured, all rejoice together with it.                                                 1 Corinthians 12:12-26

 

This is the word of the Lord

All:                Thanks be to God

 

GOSPEL

Hear the Gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ according to Matthew

All:                  Glory to you, O Lord.

When Jesus entered Capernaum, a centurion came to him, appealing to him and saying, ‘Lord, my servant is lying at home paralysed, in terrible distress.’ And he said to him, ‘I will come and cure him.’ The centurion answered, ‘Lord, I am not worthy to have you come under my roof; but only speak the word, and my servant will be healed. For I also am a man under authority, with soldiers under me; and I say to one, “Go”, and he goes, and to another, “Come”, and he comes, and to my slave, “Do this”, and the slave does it.’ When Jesus heard him, he was amazed and said to those who followed him, ‘Truly I tell you, in no one in Israel have I found such faith. I tell you, many will come from east and west and will eat with Abraham and Isaac and Jacob in the kingdom of heaven, while the heirs of the kingdom will be thrown into the outer darkness, where there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth.’ And to the centurion Jesus said, ‘Go; let it be done for you according to your faith.’ And the servant was healed in that hour.

Matthew 8:5-13

 

This is the Gospel of the Lord.

All:                Praise to you, O Christ.

INTERCESSIONS See Church News for the latest intercessions list

 

THE PEACE:

The peace of the Lord be always with you;

All:     and also with you.

 

Be present, be present,

Lord Jesus Christ,

our risen high priest;

make yourself known in the breaking of bread.

All:         Amen.

 

All:     God of all goodness and grace,

receive the gifts we offer;

and grant that our whole life

may give you glory and praise;

through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

 

EUCHARISTIC PRAYER:

The Lord is here.

All:     His Spirit is with us.

 

Lift up your hearts.

All:     We lift them to the Lord.

 

Let us give thanks to the Lord our God.

All:     It is right to give thanks and praise.

 

It is right to praise you, Father, Lord of all creation; in your love you made us for yourself.

When we turned away you did not reject us,

but came to meet us in your Son.

All:     You embraced us as your children

and welcomed us to sit and eat with you.

 

 

In Christ you shared our life

that we might live in him and he in us.

All:     He opened his arms of love upon the cross and made for all the perfect sacrifice for sin.

 

On the night he was betrayed,

at supper with his friends

he took bread, and gave you thanks;

he broke it and gave it to them, saying:

Take, eat; this is my body which is given for you;

do this in remembrance of me.

All:      Father, we do this in remembrance of him: his body is the bread of life.

 

At the end of supper, taking the cup of wine,

he gave you thanks, and said:

Drink this, all of you; this is my blood of the new covenant,

which is shed for you for the forgiveness of sins;

do this in remembrance of me.

All:     Father, we do this in remembrance of him: his blood is shed for all.

 

As we proclaim his death and celebrate his rising in glory,

send your Holy Spirit that this bread and this wine

may be to us the body and blood of your dear Son.

All:     As we eat and drink these holy gifts

make us one in Christ, our risen Lord.

 

With your whole Church throughout the world

we offer you this sacrifice of praise

and lift our voice to join the eternal song of heaven:

All:     Holy, holy, holy Lord,

God of power and might,

Heaven and earth are full of your glory.

Hosanna in the highest.

 

THE LORD’S PRAYER:

As our Saviour taught us, so we pray

All:     Our Father in heaven,

hallowed be your name,
your kingdom come,
your will be done,
on earth as in heaven.
Give us today our daily bread.
Forgive us our sins
as we forgive those who sin against us.
Lead us not into temptation
but deliver us from evil.
For the kingdom, the power,
and the glory are yours
now and for ever.   Amen.

 

BREAKING OF THE BREAD:

All:     Lamb of God,

you take away the sin of the world,

have mercy on us.

 

Lamb of God,

you take away the sin of the world,

have mercy on us.

 

Lamb of God,

you take away the sin of the world,

grant us peace.

 

GIVING OF COMMUNION:

Jesus is the Lamb of God

who takes away the sin of the world.

Blessed are those who are called to his supper.

All:        Lord, I am not worthy to receive you,

   but only say the word, and I shall be healed.

 

POST-COMMUNION PRAYER

Father, in baptism we die to sin,

rise again to new life

and find our true place in your living body.

Send us out sealed in Christ’s blood of the new covenant,

to bring healing and reconciliation to this wounded world,

through Jesus Christ our Lord.

Amen

 

THE LIVING GOD’S LOVE PRAYER:

ALL:    Living God,

Draw us deeper into your love;

 

Jesus our Lord,

Send us to care and serve;

 

Holy Spirit,

Make us heralds of good news.

 

Stir us, strengthen us, teach and inspire us to live your love

with generosity and joy,

imagination and courage;

for the sake of your world and in the name of Jesus. Amen.

 

BLESSING

 

THE DISMISSAL:

     Go in peace to love and serve the Lord.

All:          In the name of Christ. Amen.
