A warm welcome to visitors who join us today

Introduction
Blessing and glory and wisdom and thanksgiving and honour and power and might be to our God for ever and ever. We join our voices with those of the heavenly throng, as we praise the Lamb who reigns.

THE COLLECT
Almighty God, whose Son Jesus Christ is the resurrection and the life: Raise us, who trust in him, from the death of sin to the life of righteousness, that we may seek those things which are above, where he reigns with you in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever. Amen.

THE READINGS FOR TODAY (Page 905/907)
First Reading Acts 9: 36-43
A good Christian woman is raised from the dead, and becomes a means of bringing others to faith.

Second Reading Revelation 7: 9-17
Now beyond all pain, those who have remained steadfast in faith through the traumas of their lives rejoice to worship their Lord in heaven.

Gospel St. John 10: 22-30
Jesus responds to a hostile challenge with a promise of eternal life for those who recognise him as their shepherd.

POST-COMMUNION PRAYER
Merciful Father, you gave your Son Jesus Christ to be the good shepherd, and in his love for us to lay down his life and rise again: Keep us always under his protection, and give us grace to follow in his steps; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen
