Called to be Holy: Novena Day 3 (17 May)
Sunday 17 May 2015 Articles

The Office

O God, make speed to save us.
O Lord, make haste to help us.

Glory be to the Father and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit:
As it was in the beginning, is now and ever shall be, world without end. Amen. Alleluia.

Psalm 131 (130)

O Lord, my heart is not proud
nor haughty my eyes.
I have not gone after things too great
nor marvels beyond me.

Truly I have set my soul
in silence and peace.
A weaned child on its mother’s breast,
even so is my soul.

O Israel, hope in the Lord
both now and forever.

Grail Psalter

Reading of the Day

Beware of pride, for it is a blasphemy against God’s gifts, and makes sinners bold. If you were truly meek, you would know in your heart what I say about this work: that God gives it freely without any of our deserving… Consider yourself as blind, and let go of any hankering after knowledge, for that would hinder rather than help you. It is enough for you to feel yourself stirred by something you could never understand, and to have no thoughts about anything under God; let your whole intention be directed nakedly towards God. If this is your experience, you may be certain that it is God alone who stirs your will and your desire directly by himself, without any intermediary means either on his part or yours. And do not be afraid, for the devil can never come as near you as this. He can never act so intimately and directly on a person’s will, however subtle a devil he may be.

Cloude of Unknowynge, Chapter 34
Anonymous translation

Silent reflection

The Lord’s Prayer

Our Father, who art in heaven,
hallowed be thy name;
thy kingdom come;
thy will be done,
on earth as it is in heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread.
And forgive us our trespasses,
as we forgive them that trespass against us.
And lead us not into temptation;
but deliver us from evil. Amen.

Collect of the Day in the Novena

O God
you are hidden from our thinking but not from our loving,
yet nothing in us is hidden from you.
Work your grace in us; stir our hearts with your love,
that in humility and charity we may find ourselves at one with you
in the heart of Christ your Son,
who by his Godhead and his manhood together is our truest judge;
who lives and reigns with you in the unity of the Holy Spirit,
God, for ever and ever. Amen.

Collect for the Novena

O God, who taught the hearts of your faithful people
by the sending to them the light of your Holy Spirit;
Grant us by the same Spirit to have a right judgement in all things,
and evermore to rejoice in his holy comfort;
through the merits of Christ Jesus our Saviour,
who lives and reigns with you,
in the unity of that same Spirit,
one God, for ever and ever. Amen.

Conclusion

May the souls of the faithful, through the mercy of God, rest in peace. Amen
