RINGING OF THE BELL / ANNOUNCEMENTS
CONFESSION AND FORGIVENESS
Blessed be the holy Trinity, + one God, the Sovereign over all the earth, the Wisdom
from on high, our merciful Judge and Savior. Amen.
Gathered in the name of Almighty God, let us boldly approach the throne of grace,
trusting in God's mercy and love ]b ?\f]gho
Silence is kept for reflection
Generous and faithful God,
we confess to you all the ways, known and unknown, that we reject and undermine
your steadfast love. Though you made us your people, we treat strangers with
suspicion. Though you forgave our debts, we collect without mercy. Yet we are
quick to pass judgment on others. Have mercy on us, O God, and remember your
promise to us, for the sake of Jesus Christ, our Lord. Amen.
The grass withers, the flower fades, but the word of our God will stand forever.
Through the living Word, + Jesus Christ, God forgives your every debt, your every sin,
and gives you a new heart and a new spirit. Amen.

WORD
FIRST READING
Amos 5:18-24
OT page 807
rP\Y Z]fgh fYUX]b[ ]g ]b =acg W\UdhYf 3* jYfgYg /6-24. It is found in the Old Testament on page
6.5 cZ mcif V]V`Yg,s
In the days of Amos people thought that the day of the Lord would be a time of great victory,
but Amos announced that it would be a day of darkness, not light. He said liturgy is no
substitute for obedience. The Lord demands justice and righteousness in the community.
r=bX bck h\Y NYUX]b[s
Alas for you who desire the day of the LORD!
Why do you want the day of the LORD?
It is darkness, not light; as if someone fled from a lion, and was met by a bear;
or went into the house and rested a hand against the wall, and was bitten by a snake.
Is not the day of the LORD darkness, not light, and gloom with no brightness in it?
I hate, I despise your festivals, and I take no delight in your solemn assemblies.
Even though you offer me your burnt offerings and grain offerings, I will not accept them;
and the offerings of well-being of your fatted animals I will not look upon.
Take away from me the noise of your songs; I will not listen to the melody of your harps.
But let justice roll down like waters, and righteousness like an ever-flowing stream.
The Word of the Lord
Thanks be to God.
SECOND READING
1 Thessalonians 4:13-18
NT page 181
rP\Y gYWcbX fYUX]b[ ]g ]b / P\YggU`cb]Ubg W\UdhYf 2* jYfgYg /1-18. It is found in the New
PYghUaYbh cb dU[Y /6/ cZ mcif V]V`Yg,s
Some of the Thessalonians are worried that dead Christians will be excluded from the
resurrection to eternal life when Christ comes again. Paul reassures them with the word of
hope that all Christians, living or dead, will be raised into everlasting life with Christ.
r=bX bck h\Y NYUX]b[s
But we do not want you to be uninformed, brothers and sisters, about those who have died, so
that you may not grieve as others do who have no hope. For since we believe that Jesus died
and rose again, even so, through Jesus, God will bring with him those who have died. For this
we declare to you by the word of the Lord, that we who are alive, who are left until the coming
of the Lord, will by no means precede those who have died. For the Lord himself, with a cry of
command, with the archangel's call and with the sound of God's trumpet, will descend from
heaven, and the dead in Christ will rise first. Then we who are alive, who are left, will be
caught up in the clouds together with them to meet the Lord in the air; and so we will be with
the Lord forever. Therefore encourage one another with these words.
The Word of the Lord
Thanks be to God.
GOSPEL ACCLAMATION
GOSPEL
Matthew 25:1-13
NT page 24
rP\Y CcgdY` ]g ZcibX ]b IUhh\Yk chapter 25, verses 1-13. It is found in the New Testament on
dU[Y 02 cZ mcif V]V`Yg,s
Jesus tells a parable about his own second coming, emphasizing the need for readiness at all
times.
rP\Y Dcly Gospel according to St. Matthew the 25th chapter. Glory to you, O Lord.s
Then the kingdom of heaven will be like this. Ten bridesmaids took their lamps and went to
meet the bridegroom. Five of them were foolish, and five were wise. When the foolish took
their lamps, they took no oil with them; but the wise took flasks of oil with their lamps. As the
bridegroom was delayed, all of them became drowsy and slept. But at midnight there was a
shout, 'Look! Here is the bridegroom! Come out to meet him.' Then all those bridesmaids got
up and trimmed their lamps. The foolish said to the wise, 'Give us some of your oil, for our
lamps are going out.' But the wise replied, 'No! there will not be enough for you and for us; you
had better go to the dealers and buy some for yourselves.' And while they went to buy it, the
bridegroom came, and those who were ready went with him into the wedding banquet; and the
door was shut. Later the other bridesmaids came also, saying, 'Lord, lord, open to us.' But he
replied, 'Truly I tell you, I do not know you.' Keep awake therefore, for you know neither the
day nor the hour.
The Gospel of the Lord. Praise to you, O Christ.
