                                         St. Merryn and St. Issey with St. Petroc Minor

                               April 2nd 2017 – FIFTH SUNDAY OF LENT – PASSIONTIDE BEGINS

                                     A warm welcome to visitors who join us today. 

INTRODUCTION

Today we are led through death into life, preparing us for the same journey through the events of Holy Week to the Resurrection.

 

THE COLLECT

Most merciful God,

who by the death and resurrection of your Son Jesus Christ

delivered and saved the world:

grant that by faith in him who suffered on the cross

we may triumph in the power of his victory;

through Jesus Christ your Son our Lord,

who is alive and reigns with you, in the unity of the Holy Spirit,

one God, now and for ever.  Amen

 

TODAY’S READINGS – Page 105/108

First Reading                                                      Ezekiel 37: 1 – 14

God can breathe life into that which appears dead and promises as much to his people. We can find new life and a new future.

 

Second Reading                                                Roman 8: 6 – 11

God’s Spirit, living in us, gives immortal life to our mortal bodies.

 

Gospel                                                                  St. John 11: 1 – 45

As Lazarus is raised from the dead so we too will be resurrected when Jesus’ passion and sacrifice frees us from the bonds of death.

 

POST-COMMUNION PRAYER

Lord Jesus Christ, you have taught us

that what we do for the least of our brothers and sisters we do also for you:  Give us the will to be the servant of others as you were the servant of all, and gave up your life and died for us, but are alive and reign, now and for ever.  Amen
