Morning Prayer — Sunday — Lent 3

Part 1. From the Divine Office

Opening

    O Lord, open my lips.
And my mouth shall proclaim Your praise.

    O God, come to my assistance, O Lord, make haste to help me.

    Glory be to the Father, and to the Son and to the Holy Spirit.

    As it was in the beginning is now and ever shall be,
world without end. Amen.

    Praise be to you, Lord, King of eternal glory.

 
 

Lenten Acclamations For Reflection:—
Acknowledging our sinfulness, our need of repentance, and expressing our strong desire to be restored fully to God's household.

During Lent these morning acclamations are taken from the Mass of the day. Any one of them can be recited as an antiphon before and after the psalm, or be simply the subject of a meditation.

     
 
  • To You I lift up my soul, O Lord. In You, O my God, I trust; let me not be put to shame. My eyes are ever toward the Lord, for He will free my feet from the snare. Look toward me, and have pity upon me, for I am alone and afflicted.
 
  • The precepts of the Lord are right, rejoicing the heart, and His ordinances are sweeter than syrup or honey from the comb; therefore your servant is careful of them.
 
  • May this offering we implore You, O Lord, cleanse away our sins, and sanctify the bodies and minds of Your servants for the celebration of this sacrifice.
