Hosanna in the highest. Words of Institution Host BISHOP:
Holy and gracious Father: in your infinite love you made us for yourself; and, when we had fallen into sin and become subject to death, you, in your mercy, sent Jesus Christ, your one and only eternal Son, to share our human nature, to live and die as one of us, to reconcile us to you, the God and Father of all.
He stretched out his arms upon the cross, and offered himself, in obedience to your will, a perfect sacrifice for the whole world.
On the night he was handed over to suffering and death, the Lord Jesus Christ took bread: and when he had given thanks to you, he broke it and gave it to His disciples and said “Take eat: This is my Body which is given for you. Do this in remembrance of me.”
Words of Institution Chalice
After supper he took the cup of wine; and when he had given thanks he gave it to them and said, “this is my Blood of the new Covenant which is shed for you and for many for the forgiveness of sins. Whenever you drink it do this in remembrance of me.”
Mystery of Faith
Therefore, we proclaim the Mystery of faith.
BISHOP & PEOPLE:
Christ has died.
Christ is risen.
Christ will come again.
We celebrate the memorial of our redemption, O Father, in this sacrifice of praise and thanksgiving. Recalling his death, resurrection, and ascension, we offer you these gifts.
Sanctify them by your Holy Spirit to be for your people the Body and Blood of your Son, the holy food and drink of new and unending life in Him. Sanctify us also that we may faithfully receive this holy Sacrament, and serve you in unity, constancy, and peace; and at the last day bring us with all your saints into the joy of your eternal kingdom.
We ask this all through Jesus Christ your Son. Amen.
BISHOP & PEOPLE:
Our Father, who art in Heaven,
hallowed be thy Name,
thy kingdom come,
thy will be done,
on earth as it is in heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread,
And forgive us our trespasses,
as we forgive those who trespass against us.
And lead us not into temptation,
but deliver us from evil.
For thine is the kingdom,
and the power, and the glory,
forever and ever. Amen.
Breaking of Bread
Behold the Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world! The gifts of God for the people of God; take them and remember that Christ died for you.
Believe what you see, see what you believe and become what you are: the Body of Christ.
“This is the body of Christ, the bread of heaven.”
“This is the blood of Christ, the cup of Salvation.”
The Lord bless you and keep you; the Lord make his face shine on you and be gracious to you; the Lord turn his face toward you and give you peace.
Go now and be Christ to the world!
