Living God,
in Christ you make all things new.
Transform the poverty of our nature
by the riches of your grace,
and in the renewal of our lives

who is alive and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit,
one God, now and for ever.
Amen.
THE PROCLAMATION OF THE WORD
FIRST READING
Deuteronomy 18: 15-20
Reader: Elizabeth Challice
The LORD your God will raise up for you a prophet like me from among your own
people; you shall heed such a prophet. This is what you requested of the LORD your God
at Horeb on the day of the assembly when you said: “If I hear the voice of the LORD my
God any more, or ever again see this great fire, I will die.” Then the LORD replied to me:
“They are right in what they have said. I will raise up for them a prophet like you from
among their own people; I will put my words in the mouth of the prophet, who shall
speak to them everything that I command. Anyone who does not heed the words that the
prophet shall speak in my name, I myself will hold accountable. But any prophet who
speaks in the name of other gods, or who presumes to speak in my name a word that I
have not commanded the prophet to speak – that prophet shall die.”
Reader
Thanks be to God.

Cantor first, then all sing the refrain.
The Choir sings the verses and the Congregation sings the refrain where indicated
Hallelujah!
I will give thanks to the LORD with my whole heart, *
in the assembly of the upright, in the congregation.
Great are the deeds of the LORD! *
they are studied by all who delight in them.
Refrain
His work is full of majesty and splendour, *
and his righteousness endures for ever.
He makes his marvellous works to be remembered; *
the LORD is gracious and full of compassion.
Refrain
He gives food to those who fear him; *
he is ever mindful of his covenant.
He has shown his people the power of his works *
in giving them the lands of the nations.
Refrain
The works of his hands are faithfulness and justice; *
all his commandments are sure.
They stand fast for ever and ever, *
because they are done in truth and equity.
Refrain
He sent redemption to his people;
he commanded his covenant for ever; *
holy and awesome is his Name.
The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom; *
those who act accordingly have a good understanding;
his praise endures for ever.
Refrain

SECOND READING
1 Corinthians 8: 1-13
Reader: Diana Patterson
Now concerning food sacrificed to idols: we know that “all of us possess knowledge.”
Knowledge puffs up, but love builds up. Anyone who claims to know something does not
yet have the necessary knowledge; but anyone who loves God is known by him. Hence,
as to the eating of food offered to idols, we know that “no idol in the world really exists,”
and that “there is no God but one.” Indeed, even though there may be so-called gods in
heaven or on earth—as in fact there are many gods and many lords—yet for us there is
one God, the Father, from whom are all things and for whom we exist, and one Lord,
Jesus Christ, through whom are all things and through whom we exist. It is not everyone,
however, who has this knowledge. Since some have become so accustomed to idols until
now, they still think of the food they eat as food offered to an idol; and their conscience,
being weak, is defiled. “Food will not bring us close to God.” We are no worse off if we
do not eat, and no better off if we do. But take care that this liberty of yours does not
somehow become a stumbling block to the weak. For if others see you, who possess
knowledge, eating in the temple of an idol, might they not, since their conscience is
weak, be encouraged to the point of eating food sacrificed to idols? So by your
knowledge those weak believers for whom Christ died are destroyed. But when you thus
sin against members of your family, and wound their conscience when it is weak, you sin
against Christ. Therefore, if food is a cause of their falling, I will never eat meat, so that I
may not cause one of them to fall.
Reader
Thanks be to God.

And also with you.

People
The Holy Gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ according to Mark.
Glory to you, Lord Jesus Christ.
They went to Capernaum; and when the sabbath came, Jesus entered the synagogue and
taught. They were astounded at his teaching, for he taught them as one having authority,
and not as the scribes. Just then there was in their synagogue a man with an unclean
spirit, and he cried out, “What have you to do with us, Jesus of Nazareth? Have you come
to destroy us? I know who you are, the Holy One of God.” But Jesus rebuked him,
saying, “Be silent, and come out of him!” And the unclean spirit, convulsing him and
crying with a loud voice, came out of him. They were all amazed, and they kept on
asking one another, “What is this? A new teaching – with authority! He commands even
the unclean spirits, and they obey him.” At once his fame began to spread throughout the
surrounding region of Galilee.

Esto nobis praegustatum

O Jesu dulcis! O Jesu pie!
O Jesu fili Mariae. Amen.

Hail the true body,
Born of the Virgin Mary,
Truly suffered, sacrificed
On the Cross for mankind,
Whose pierced side
Flowed with water and blood
Let it be for us, in consideration,
A foretaste of death.
O sweet Jesus! O gentle Jesus!
O Jesus son of Mary! Amen.
