14.05.02 Exegesis - Easter 3

  1. 1. Sacrament = Mystery μυστήριον (mysterion) Help the fallen phrases:
  2. 2. 1 May God bestow on us His grace, With blessings rich provide us; And may the brightness of His face To life eternal guide us, That we His saving health may know, His gracious will and pleasure, And also to the heathen show Christ's riches without measure And unto God convert them. 2 Thine over all shall be the praise And thanks of ev'ry nation; And all the world with joy shall raise The voice of exultation. For Thou shalt judge the earth, O Lord, Nor suffer sin to flourish; Thy people's pasture is Thy Word Their souls to feed and nourish, In rightous paths to keep them. 3 O let the people praise Thy worth, In all good works increasing; The land shall plenteous fruit bring forth, Thy Word is rich in blessing. May God the Father, God the Son, And God the Spirit bless us! Let all the world praise Him alone; Let solemn awe possess us. Now let our hearts say "Amen!"
  3. 3. Let us pray for the whole Church of God in Christ Jesus and for all people according to their needs. Brief silence O Father of the risen Christ, in Your Son’s appearance to the Emmaus disciples, He expounded the Scriptures and revealed Himself in the breaking of the bread. Grant us grace that we, too, may perceive Him as our Savior through His Word and rejoice to receive Him as the bread of life for the salvation of our souls in the Supper. By these gifts of Word and Sacrament, renew our piety this Eastertide that we may grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior. Lord, in Your mercy, hear our prayer. Heavenly Father, Your Son is victor over death and the grave. Strengthen us during this Easter season to believe and live from the Good News, that even as He triumphed over death and the grave, so shall all who place their trust in Him… Lord of the nations, You have established good government to provide for our daily bread. Bless, direct and guide the leaders of our city, state and nation, that they may rightly wield the sword of justice, defend those who cannot defend themselves and hear the cries of all who are in any need. Make us instruments of peace as we live a life of fervent love for all of our neighbors and tell the Good News of salvation to those whom You have placed into our daily vocation…
  4. 4. Kind Father, according to Your great mercy, You have caused us to be born again to a living hope through the resurrection of Your Son from the dead. Keep us steadfast in the hope of the inheritance that cannot fade, that is imperishable and that is kept in heaven for us, and give us a steadfast faith as we wait for the final resurrection of all flesh… All loving One, in Your Son’s ministry He brought healing to many with diseased and damaged bodies. Bless, comfort and sustain all who have requested our prayers [especially ______________ ]. Grant that they may look to You in every need, draw comfort from Your abiding Word and daily rejoice in the Good News that Christ has died, Christ is risen and Christ will come again… O Source of endless life, we thank You for the faithful who have gone before us and are with Christ. Bring us with them to share in the joys of the resurrection of the body and the life everlasting, that we may join in the eternal worship of the Lamb and ever cry, “Worthy is the Lamb that was slain!” … Into Your hands, O Lord, we commend all for whom we pray, trusting in Your mercy, through Jesus Christ, our Lord. Amen.
  5. 5. The Risen Lord Jesus Is with Us in Holy Baptism and in “the Breaking of the Bread”
