TWENTY-FOURTH SUNDAY IN ORDINARY TIME
Entrance Antiphon (Sir 36: 18 and Ps 121: 1)
Cantor: Grant peace to those who are waiting for you, O Lord, so that your proph- ets may be proved trust- wor- thy; hear the prayers of your ser- vant and of your peo- ple Is- ra- el.
(Vs. I re- joiced when it was said un- to me: "Let us go to the house of the Lord.")
Assembly: Glo- ry be to the Fa- ther, and to the Son, and to the Ho- ly Spir- it. As it was in the be- gin- ning, is now, and ev- er shall be, world with- out end. A- men.
Psalm Response: “The Lord is kind and merciful, slow to anger, and rich in compassion.”
Bring up your sacrifices and come into his courts; adore the Lord in his holy temple.
1. Take my heart, O lord, take my hopes and dreams.
Take my mind with all its plans and schemes.
Give me nothing more than your love and grace.
These alone, O God, are enough for me.
2. Take my thoughts, O lord, and my memory.
Take my tears, my joys, my liberty.
3. I surrender, Lord, all I have and hold.
I return to you your gifts untold.
4. When the darkness falls on my final days,
take the very breath that sang your praise.

SPECIAL COLLECTION FOR THE HOLY LAND
Holy Father Francis has asked us take up a Collection for the Holy Land this weekend. It usually takes place on Good Friday, but the pandemic stopped us from doing that. Perhaps you already gave through WeShare, E-Giving or by dropping off your Good Friday envelope. If you have not done so, please consider making a gift. It will help the good work of the Franciscans in the Holy Land and enable them to care for the Holy Sites. Make sure to put your donation in an envelope marked “Holy Land” and drop it in a Collection basket or mail it to the church. God bless you!
