Honiton Holy Family Parish
Family “Lectio Divina”
We speak to God when we pray. God speaks to us when we read the Bible.
Lord Jesus, you made us know God's love for us.
May the light of this candle remind us that you are now with us and you want to talk to us like you talk to dear friends.
Help us to listen to you and talk with you.
Come, Holy Spirit, fill the hearts of your faithful
- and kindle in them the fire of your love.
Send forth your Spirit and they shall be created,
- and you shall renew the face of the earth.
O God, on the first day of Pentecost you instructed the hearts of those who believed in you by the light of the Holy Spirit: under the inspiration of the same Spirit, give us a taste for what is right and true, and a continuing sense of his joy-bringing presence and power. Through Jesus Christ, our Lord. Amen.
THE FOUR RUNGS OF THE LADDER
RITE OF FAMILY COMMUNION
At the Saviour’s command and formed by divine teaching, we dare to say:
Deliver us, Lord, we pray, from every evil
graciously grant peace in our days,
that, by the help of your mercy,
we may be always free from sin
and safe from all distress,
as we await the blessed hope
and the coming of our Saviour, Jesus Christ.
For the kingdom, the power and the Glory are yours, now and forever.
Lord Jesus Christ,
who said to your Apostles:
“Peace I leave you, my peace I give you”;
look not on our sins,
but on the faith of this family of yours,
and graciously grant us peace and unity
in accordance with your will.
Who live and reign
for ever and ever. Amen.
The peace of the Lord be always with us. Amen.
(family members offer each other the sign of peace)
Lord, we are not worthy
that you should enter under our roof,
but only say a word
and our souls shall be healed.
JESUS, COME NOW SPIRITUALLY
TO OUR HEARTS. AMEN.
May Almighty God, bless us, the Father, and the Son and the Holy Spirit. Amen.
