INTRODUCTION

Jesus receives the poverty of our resources and generously pours into us his riches of abundant new life. So let us open our hearts to God’s goodness.

 

THE COLLECT FOR THE THIRD SUNDAY OF EPIPHANY

Almighty 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 make known your heavenly glory;
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

 

THE READINGS   (Page 778/779)

First Reading                                      Isaiah 62:1-5

The prophet proclaims that the Lord’s glory will be revealed for all to see through the salvation and restoration of his people.

 

Second Reading                                1 Corinthians 12:1-11

Through his Spirit, God sovereignly blesses believers with a rich diversity of spiritual gifts for the building up of the Christian community.

 

Gospel                                                  St. John 2:1-11

As Jesus changes water into wine at a wedding, his disciples respond to this miraculous sign of the Saviour’s glory by putting their faith in him.

 

POST COMMUNION PRAYER

God of glory, you nourish us with your Word who is the bread of life:
fill us with your Holy Spirit that through us the light of your glory

may shine in all the world.
We ask this in the name of Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen
