July 3, 2020

Welcome to Christ Cathedral

“We meet people where they are, serve ALL, and live together in Christ’s love.”
An Order of Service
for Noonday

Officiant O God, make speed to save us.
People O Lord, make haste to help us.
Officiant and People
Glory to the holy and undivided Trinity, one God: as
it was in the beginning, is now, and will be for ever. Amen. Alleluia.
The following Psalm is said

Psalm 145:8-14

The Lord is gracious and merciful,
slow to anger and abounding in steadfast love.
The Lord is good to all,
and his compassion is over all that he has made.
All your works shall give thanks to you, O Lord,
and all your faithful shall bless you.
They shall speak of the glory of your kingdom,
and tell of your power,
to make known to all people your[a] mighty deeds,
and the glorious splendor of your[b] kingdom.
Your kingdom is an everlasting kingdom,
and your dominion endures throughout all generations.
The Lord is faithful in all his words,
and gracious in all his deeds.[c]
The Lord upholds all who are falling,
and raises up all who are bowed down.

At the end of the Psalm is said

Glory to the holy and undivided Trinity, one God: as
it was in the beginning, is now, and will be for ever. Amen.

A Reading from Romans (7:7-20)
What then should we say? That the law is sin? By no means! Yet, if it had not been for the law, I would not have known sin. I would not have known what it is to covet if the law had not said, “You shall not covet.” But sin, seizing an opportunity in the commandment, produced in me all kinds of covetousness. Apart from the law sin lies dead. I was once alive apart from the law, but when the commandment came, sin revived and I died, and the very commandment that promised life proved to be death to me. For sin, seizing an opportunity in the commandment, deceived me and through it killed me. So the law is holy, and the commandment is holy and just and good.
Did what is good, then, bring death to me? By no means! It was sin, working death in me through what is good, in order that sin might be shown to be sin, and through the commandment might become sinful beyond measure.
For we know that the law is spiritual; but I am of the flesh, sold into slavery under sin. I do not understand my own actions. For I do not do what I want, but I do the very thing I hate. Now if I do what I do not want, I agree that the law is good. But in fact it is no longer I that do it, but sin that dwells within me. For I know that nothing good dwells within me, that is, in my flesh. I can will what is right, but I cannot do it. For I do not do the good I want, but the evil I do not want is what I do. Now if I do what I do not want, it is no longer I that do it, but sin that dwells within me.

People Thanks be to God.
Meditation
The Officiant then begins the Prayers
Lord, have mercy.
Christ, have mercy.

Officiant and People
Our Father in heaven,
hallowed be your Name,
your kingdom come,
your will be done,

as we forgive those
who sin against us.
Save us from the time of trial,
and deliver us from evil.
Officiant
Lord, hear our prayer;
People And let our cry come to you.
Officiant Let us pray.
Almighty God, you have built your Church upon the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Jesus Christ himself being the chief cornerstone: Grant us so to be joined together in unity of spirit by their teaching, that we may be made a holy temple acceptable to you; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.

Officiant

Let us be aware of the source of being that is common to us all and to all living creatures.

Silence

Let us be filled with the presence of the great compassion towards ourselves and towards all living beings.

Silence

Realizing that we are all nourished from the same source of life, may we so live that others be not deprived of air, food, water, shelter, or the chance to live.

Silence

Let us pray that we ourselves cease to be a cause of suffering to one another.

Silence

With humility let us pray for the establishment of peace in our hearts and on earth.

Silence

May God kindle in us the fire of love to bring us alive and give warmth to the world.

Lead me from death to life,
from falsehood to truth;
lead me from despair to hope,
from fear to trust;
lead me from hate to love,
from war to peace.
Let peace fill our heart,
our world, our universe.

A Prayer for the Power of the Spirit Among the People of God

God of all power and love, we give thanks for your unfailing presence
and the hope you provide in times of uncertainty and loss. Send your Holy Spirit to enkindle in us your holy fire. Revive us to live as Christ’s body in the world:
a people who pray, worship, learn, break bread, share life, heal neighbors,
bear good news, seek justice, rest and grow in the Spirit. Wherever and however we gather, unite us in common prayer and send us in common mission,
that we and the whole creation might be restored and renewed, through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

The service concludes as follows
Officiant Let us bless the Lord .
People Thanks be to God.

Officiant May the souls of the departed, through the mercy of God, rest in peace.
People Amen.
