Mass for the Evangelisation of Peoples

Entrance Antiphon

Tell among the nations his glory, and his wonders among all the peoples, for the Lord is great and highly to be praised. [Ps. 95:3-4]
Penitential Act

Lord Jesus, you call us to show our faith in action
Lord, have mercy
Lord Jesus, you call us to persevere through hope
Christ, have mercy
Lord Jesus, you call us to work for love
Lord, have mercy

O God, whose will it is that all should be saved and come to the knowledge of the truth, look upon your abundant harvest and be pleased to send workers to gather it, that the Gospel may be preached to all creation and that your people, gathered by the word of life and sustained by the power of the Sacraments, may advance in the path of salvation and love.Through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son, who lives and reigns with you in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever.

First Reading: Ex 17:8-13
In those days, Amalek came and waged war against Israel.
Moses, therefore, said to Joshua,
"Pick out certain men,
and tomorrow go out and engage Amalek in battle.
I will be standing on top of the hill
with the staff of God in my hand."
So Joshua did as Moses told him:
he engaged Amalek in battle
after Moses had climbed to the top of the hill with Aaron and Hur.
As long as Moses kept his hands raised up,
Israel had the better of the fight,
but when he let his hands rest,
Amalek had the better of the fight.
Moses’hands, however, grew tired;
so they put a rock in place for him to sit on.
Meanwhile Aaron and Hur supported his hands,
one on one side and one on the other,
so that his hands remained steady till sunset.
And Joshua mowed down Amalek and his people
with the edge of the sword.

Responsorial Psalm Ps 121:1-2, 3-4, 5-6, 7-8
R. Our help is from the Lord, who made heaven and earth.

I lift up my eyes toward the mountains;
whence shall help come to me?
My help is from the LORD,
who made heaven and earth.

R. Our help is from the Lord, who made heaven and earth.

May he not suffer your foot to slip;
may he slumber not who guards you:
indeed he neither slumbers nor sleeps,
the guardian of Israel.

R. Our help is from the Lord, who made heaven and earth.

The LORD is your guardian; the LORD is your shade;
he is beside you at your right hand.
The sun shall not harm you by day,
nor the moon by night.

R. Our help is from the Lord, who made heaven and earth.

The LORD will guard you from all evil;
he will guard your life.
The LORD will guard your coming and your going,
both now and forever.

R. Our help is from the Lord, who made heaven and earth.
Second Reading 2 Tm 3:14-4:2
Remain faithful to what you have learned and believed,
because you know from whom you learned it,
and that from infancy you have known the sacred Scriptures,
which are capable of giving you wisdom for salvation
through faith in Christ Jesus.
All Scripture is inspired by God
and is useful for teaching, for refutation, for correction,
and for training in righteousness,
so that one who belongs to God may be competent,
equipped for every good work.

I charge you in the presence of God and of Christ Jesus,
who will judge the living and the dead,
and by his appearing and his kingly power:
proclaim the word;
be persistent whether it is convenient or inconvenient;
convince, reprimand, encourage through all patience and teaching.

Gospel Lk 18:1-8
Jesus told his disciples a parable
about the necessity for them to pray always without becoming weary.
He said, "There was a judge in a certain town
who neither feared God nor respected any human being.
And a widow in that town used to come to him and say,
'Render a just decision for me against my adversary.'
For a long time the judge was unwilling, but eventually he thought,
'While it is true that I neither fear God nor respect any human being,
because this widow keeps bothering me
I shall deliver a just decision for her
lest she finally come and strike me.'"
The Lord said, "Pay attention to what the dishonest judge says.
Will not God then secure the rights of his chosen ones
who call out to him day and night?
Will he be slow to answer them?
I tell you, he will see to it that justice is done for them speedily.
But when the Son of Man comes, will he find faith on earth?"

Prayer of the Faithful

Celebrant: The love of Christ gathers us together in communion this Mission Sunday so that we might be renewed through this celebration of our faith and in our commitment to bring the Gospel to the ends of the earth and so we make our prayer to our loving Father:
1. We pray for all the communities throughout the world who gather to celebrate the Eucharist today. Nourished by God’s Word and by Christ’s Body and Blood, may we be joyful ministers of your saving presence to all we meet. Lord, hear us.

2. We pray for those who are suffering today. Lord, Jesus you know our weaknesses and our temptations and were no stranger to suffering. Be merciful to all who are struggling with heavy burdens. Lord, hear us.

3. In our journey of faith, let us have no ambition other than to be servants to one another in the spirit of Jesus. Let us bear one another’s burdens, bringing the gifts of healing, peace and justice to our troubled world. Lord, hear us.

4. We thank God for our missionaries and for the peoples among whom they work. In the spirit of love and generosity may we reach out in love to all missionaries throughout the world and to the communities they serve, especially to those in most need. Lord, hear us.

5. We pray for the sick, the lonely, the elderly and for all who are bereaved. May they be comforted as they unite their suffering with the Risen Christ. Lord, hear us.

6. We ask God’s every blessing on our community gathered here and on Christian Communities everywhere. May the offering of our prayers, sufferings and the support we give World Mission Sunday help us to fill the earth with God’s love. Lord, hear us.
Celebrant: Father, you sent your Son among us as a missionary to reveal your wonderful plan of salvation. Through our sharing of the gifts you give us, may we continue to grow in communion with our brothers and sisters throughout the world. Through Jesus Christ, our Lord. Amen


Prayer over the Offerings

Look, o Lord, upon the face of your Christ, who handed himself over as a ransom for all, so that through him, from the rising of the sun to its setting, your name may be exalted among the nations and in every place a single offering may be presented to your majesty. Through Christ our Lord.
Preface VII of the Sundays in Ordinary Time

It is truly right and just, our duty and our salvation, always and everywhere to give you thanks, Lord, Holy Father, almighty and eternal God.
For you so loved the world that in your mercy you sent us the Redeemer, to live like us in all things but sin, so that you might love in us what you loved in your Son, by whose obedience we have been restored to those gifts of yours that, by sinning, we had lost in disobedience.
And so, Lord, with all the Angels and Saints, We, too, give thanks, as in exultation we acclaim:
Holy, holy, holy …
Communion Antiphon

Go into the entire world, and proclaim the Gospel, says the Lord. I am with you always. [Mark 16:15]
Prayer after Communion

Nourished by these redeeming gifts, we pray, O Lord that through this help to eternal salvation true faith may ever increase. Through Christ our Lord.
Solemn Blessing

May the mission of Jesus be our constant hope

May the Lord help us to reach out with love

May he grant us the strength to proclaim his Good News

And may the blessing of almighty God, the Father, and the Son, and the Holy Spirit, come down on you and remain with you for ever. Amen.
