Collect

O God, who by the abasement of Your Son
have lifted up a fallen world;
grant to Your faithful a holy gladness,
so that having delivered us out of the servitude of sin,
You may give us to taste fully of joys that never end.
Through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son,
who lives and reigns with You in the unity of the Holy Spirit,
God, forever and ever.

General Intercessions

That, filled with the Spirit of Him who raised Jesus from the dead, the Church in East and West may be a place of comfort for the little and the poor,
and an oasis of rest for every burdened and weary soul,
to the Lord we pray: Christ, hear us. R. CHRIST, GRACIOUSLY HEAR US.

That world leaders
may seek peace for the nations in the Gospel of the Humble Christ,
and so govern with the wisdom that comes from above,
to the Lord we pray: Christ, hear us. R. CHRIST, GRACIOUSLY HEAR US.

That the falling, the bowed down,
and those who are burdened with the cares of life
may open the ear of their hearts
to the invitation of the meek and humble Christ Who,
even today, says, “Come to Me,”
to the Lord we pray: Christ, hear us. R. CHRIST, GRACIOUSLY HEAR US.

That we, having received
the revelation of mysteries hidden from the learned and the clever,
may rejoice in the arrival of the King of glory
who comes to us hidden beneath the sacramental veils,
to the Lord we pray: Christ, hear us. R. CHRIST, GRACIOUSLY HEAR US.

Collect at the General Intercessions

Almighty and ever-living God,
Who gave joy to Zion and comfort to Jerusalem (Za 9:9)
in the arrival of Your Son Jesus Christ,
gentle and humble in heart (Mt 11:29);
pour forth, we beseech you, His Spirit into our hearts (cf., Rom 8:9)
that, drawn to Him who calls us to Himself (cf., Mt 11:28),
we may lay aside every heavy burden and, entering into His rest (cf. Mt 1128),
glory in the poverty and lowliness of the King (cf. Za 9,9)
even as we confess the triumph of His victory over death.
Who is Lord forever and ever.
