The Holy Eucharist: Rite II



The Word of God



Hymn #577: God is Love

[Verses 1-3]


REFRAIN:

God is love, and where true love is

God himself is there


1 Here in Christ we gather, love of Christ our calling

Christ, our love, is with us, gladness be his greeting

Let us fear and love him, holy God eternal

Loving him, let each love Christ in one another


2 When we Christians gather, members of one Body

Let there be in us no discord but one spirit

Banished now be anger, strife and every quarrel

Christ our God, be always present here among us


3 Grant us love's fulfillment, joy with all the blessed

When we see your face, O Savior in its glory

Shine on us, O purest Light of all creation

Be our bliss while endless ages sing your praises

The Penitential Order

[BCP, p. 351]


Bless the Lord who forgives all our sins.

God's mercy endures forever.



The Decalogue

[BCP, p. 350]


Hear the commandments of God to his people:

I am the Lord your God who brought you out of bondage. You shall have no other gods but me. Amen. Lord have mercy.


You shall not make for yourself any idol. Amen. Lord have mercy.


You shall not invoke with malice the Name of the Lord your God. Amen. Lord have mercy.


Remember the Sabbath day and keep it holy. Amen. Lord have mercy.


Honor your father and your mother. Amen. Lord have mercy.


You shall not commit murder. Amen. Lord have mercy.


You shall not commit adultery. Amen. Lord have mercy.


You shall not steal. Amen. Lord have mercy.


You shall not be a false witness. Amen. Lord have mercy.


You shall not covet anything that belongs to your neighbor. Amen. Lord have mercy.



The Confession of Sin

[BCP, p. 352]


Jesus said, "The first commandment is this: Hear, O Israel: The lord our God is the only Lord. Love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, with all your mind, and with all your strength. The second is this: Love your neighbor as yourself. There is no other commandment greater than these." (Mark 12:29-31)

Let us confess our sins against God and our neighbor.

Most merciful God, we confess that we have sinned against you in thought, word, and deed, by what we have done, and by what we have left undone. We have not loved you with our whole heart; we have not loved our neighbors as ourselves. We are truly sorry and we humbly repent. For the sake of your Son Jesus Christ, have mercy on us and forgive us; that we may delight in your will, and walk in your ways, to the glory of your Name. Amen.


The Bishop, when present, or the Priest, stands and says

Almighty God have mercy on you, forgive you all your sins through our Lord Jesus Christ, strengthen you in all goodness, and by the power of the Holy Spirit keep you in eternal life. Amen.



Lord, Have Mercy (Kyrie Eleison)

[BCP, p. 356]


Lord, have mercy

Christ, have mercy

Lord, have mercy



The Collect of the Day

[BCP, p. 357, 221]

The Lord be with you.

And also with you.

Let us pray:


Almighty Father, whose dear Son, on the night before he suffered, instituted the Sacrament of his Body and Blood: Mercifully grant that we may receive it thankfully in remembrance of Jesus Christ our Lord, who in these holy mysteries gives us a pledge of eternal life; and who now lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.



A Reading from the Book of Exodus (12:1-14)


The Lord said to Moses and Aaron in the land of Egypt: This month shall mark for you the beginning of months; it shall be the first month of the year for you. Tell the whole congregation of Israel that on the tenth of this month they are to take a lamb for each family, a lamb for each household. If a household is too small for a whole lamb, it shall join its closest neighbor in obtaining one; the lamb shall be divided in proportion to the number of people who eat of it. Your lamb shall be without blemish, a year-old male; you may take it from the sheep or from the goats. You shall keep it until the fourteenth day of this month; then the whole assembled congregation of Israel shall slaughter it at twilight. They shall take some of the blood and put it on the two doorposts and the lintel of the houses in which they eat it. They shall eat the lamb that same night; they shall eat it roasted over the fire with unleavened bread and bitter herbs. Do not eat any of it raw or boiled in water, but roasted over the fire, with its head, legs, and inner organs. You shall let none of it remain until the morning; anything that remains until the morning you shall burn. This is how you shall eat it: your loins girded, your sandals on your feet, and your staff in your hand; and you shall eat it hurriedly. It is the passover of the Lord. For I will pass through the land of Egypt that night, and I will strike down every firstborn in the land of Egypt, both human beings and animals; on all the gods of Egypt I will execute judgments: I am the Lord. The blood shall be a sign for you on the houses where you live: when I see the blood, I will pass over you, and no plague shall destroy you when I strike the land of Egypt.


This day shall be a day of remembrance for you. You shall celebrate it as a festival to the Lord; throughout your generations you shall observe it as a perpetual ordinance.


The Word of the Lord.

Thanks be to God.


Psalm 116:1, 10-17a

[BCP, p. 782]

Read responsively by half-verse (at the asterisk).

1 I love the Lord, because he has heard the voice of my supplication, * because he has inclined his ear to me whenever I called upon him.


10 How shall I repay the Lord * for all the good things he has done for me?


11 I will lift up the cup of salvation * and call upon the Name of the Lord.


12 I will fulfill my vows to the Lord * in the presence of all his people.


13 Precious in the sight of the Lord * is the death of his servants.


14 O Lord, I am your servant; * I am your servant and the child of your handmaid; you have freed me from my bonds.


15 I will offer you the sacrifice of thanksgiving * and call upon the Name of the Lord.


16 I will fulfill my vows to the Lord * in the presence of all his people,


17 In the courts of the Lord’s house, * in the midst of you, O Jerusalem.



A Reading from the First Letter of St. Paul to the Corinthians (11:23-26)

I received from the Lord what I also handed on to you, that the Lord Jesus on the night when he was betrayed took a loaf of bread, and when he had given thanks, he broke it and said, “This is my body that is for you. Do this in remembrance of me.” In the same way he took the cup also, after supper, saying, “This cup is the new covenant in my blood. Do this, as often as you drink it, in remembrance of me.” For as often as you eat this bread and drink the cup, you proclaim the Lord’s death until he comes.


The Word of the Lord.

Thanks be to God.

The People stand for the reading of the Gospel.

The Holy Gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ According to St. John (13:1-17, 31b-35)

Glory to you, Lord Christ.


Now before the festival of the Passover, Jesus knew that his hour had come to depart from this world and go to the Father. Having loved his own who were in the world, he loved them to the end. The devil had already put it into the heart of Judas son of Simon Iscariot to betray him. And during supper Jesus, knowing that the Father had given all things into his hands, and that he had come from God and was going to God, got up from the table, took off his outer robe, and tied a towel around himself. Then he poured water into a basin and began to wash the disciples’ feet and to wipe them with the towel that was tied around him. He came to Simon Peter, who said to him, “Lord, are you going to wash my feet?” Jesus answered, “You do not know now what I am doing, but later you will understand.” Peter said to him, “You will never wash my feet.” Jesus answered, “Unless I wash you, you have no share with me.” Simon Peter said to him, “Lord, not my feet only but also my hands and my head!” Jesus said to him, “One who has bathed does not need to wash, except for the feet, but is entirely clean. And you are clean, though not all of you.” For he knew who was to betray him; for this reason he said, “Not all of you are clean.”


After he had washed their feet, had put on his robe, and had returned to the table, he said to them, “Do you know what I have done to you? You call me Teacher and Lord--and you are right, for that is what I am. So if I, your Lord and Teacher, have washed your feet, you also ought to wash one another’s feet. For I have set you an example, that you also should do as I have done to you. Very truly, I tell you, servants are not greater than their master, nor are messengers greater than the one who sent them. If you know these things, you are blessed if you do them.


“Now the Son of Man has been glorified, and God has been glorified in him. If God has been glorified in him, God will also glorify him in himself and will glorify him at once. Little children, I am with you only a little longer. You will look for me; and as I said to the Jews so now I say to you, `Where I am going, you cannot come.’ I give you a new commandment, that you love one another. Just as I have loved you, you also should love one another. By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you have love for one another.”


The Gospel of the Lord.

Praise to you, Lord Christ.



The Sermon

"Final Act and Final Word" by the Rev. Guillermo A. Arboleda


What do you want your final act to be? What do you want your final word to be? How do you want people to remember you when you’re gone? In tonight’s Gospel reading, we hear about Jesus’ Last Supper with his disciples. Now, Jesus knew that he was about to die so was able to prepare to say something meaningful and important to his disciples. He was able to prepare with intention for his final words and his final actions. Jesus was able to leave his disciples and us with something memorable and inspirational.


Jesus’ final act was service -- washing his disciples’ feet. Instead of beginning the Supper with words, Jesus began with action. He didn’t just tell them what to do, he showed them. After years of walking, talking, teaching, eating, and traveling with these disciples, Jesus had earned their trust and respect. And in first century Jewish culture, you demonstrate respect to someone by humbling yourself around them, and refusing to allow them to humble themselves. It’s sort of like how once a respected elder hits a certain age, younger folks will fall all over themselves to serve them a plate at a family meal or church dinner. It would be awkward, embarrassing, or even disrespectful for the younger adult to receive that kind of treatment from the respected elder.


Jesus flips this expectation on its head. He, the Lord and Teacher, puts on a towel and washes his disciples’ feet. He serves them as a child or slave might serve. So, Peter’s reaction, rather than being harsh, is actually culturally appropriate. He’s supposed to say, “You will never wash my feet” (John 13:8). Peter should resist Jesus in that moment; he shouldn’t let Jesus serve him; he rightfully thinks it should be the other way around. But then Jesus asserts that this service is a lesson: “Unless I wash you, you have no share with me” (13:8). Jesus has to show the disciples that love is an action. Love requires humility and service. Love requires rejecting privilege for the sake of lifting up others. Love is the path to true leadership. They, like us, need to learn that lesson in order to be faithful to God’s call.


Then Jesus brings his final word, and his final word was also love: “I give you a new commandment, that you love one another. Just as I have loved you, you also should love one another. By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you have love for one another” (13:34-35). Now that they have seen the kind of love he’s talking about, Jesus can give them the new commandment (or mandate -- as in Maundy Thursday). Love is not simply a thing we say or feel, it’s what we do. And when we act in love, walk in love, allowing people to see our love, then people will know that we are disciples of Jesus. So love is the way of Jesus. It’s also the most compelling tool we have to invite people to join the way of Jesus. Love is evangelism.


So at his Last Supper, Jesus did love and he spoke love. Love was his final act and his final word. What will we do? We don’t have the benefit of knowing when our time will come. But that shouldn’t make us more afraid. It should make us bolder. It means we should strive to walk in love as Christ loved us today and every day. The way of love may lead to trials and tribulations, as it led Jesus to the Cross, but the way of love is faithful and good. And God’s grace will carry us through today and on our last days. Amen.



The Washing of Feet

[The Book of Occasional Services 2018, p. 82]


Fellow servants of our Lord Jesus Christ: On the night before his death, Jesus set an example for his disciples by washing their feet, an act of humble service. He taught that strength and growth in the life of the Kingdom of God come not by power, authority, or even miracle, but by such lowly service.


Therefore, I invite you who share in the royal priesthood of Christ, to come forward, that we may recall whose servant we are by following the example of our Master. Come remembering his admonition that what will be done for us is also to be done by us to others, for “a servant is not greater than his master, nor is one who is sent greater than the one who sent him. If you know these things, blessed are you if you do them.”



AAHH #674: Wash, O God, Our Sons and Daughters

[Verses 1-3]


1 Wash, O God, our sons and daughters

Where Your cleansing waters flow

Number them among Your people

Bless as Christ blessed long ago

Weave them garments bright and sparkling

Compass them with love and light

Fill, anoint them; send your Spirit

Holy dove and heart’s delight


2 We who bring them long for nurture

By Your milk may we be fed

Let us join Your feast, partaking

Cup of blessing, living bread

God, renew us, guide our footsteps

Free from sin and all its snares

One with Christ in living, dying

By Your Spirit , children, heirs


3 O how deep Your holy wisdom!

Unimagined all Your ways!

To Your name be glory, honor!

With our lives we worship, praise!

We Your people stand before You

Water washed and Spirit born

By Your grace, our lives we offer

Recreate us; God, transform!

Lord, in your mercy,

Lord, in your mercy,

Hear our prayer.


We pray for those who are ill, those in pain, those under stress, and those who are lonely. Give them the joy of your saving help, and sustain them with your bountiful Spirit.

Lord, in your mercy,

Hear our prayer.


In this season of Lent, we pray for those who prepare for baptism, and we pray that we all might be given the grace and strength to repent and grow closer to you, O God. Create in us clean hearts, O God, and renew a right spirit within us.

Lord, in your mercy,

Hear our prayer.


We pray for those who have died and who have entered into the land of eternal Light and your abiding peace, and those whom we remember now... Cast them not away from your presence, and take not your Holy Spirit from them.

Lord, in your mercy,

Hear our prayer.


We pray for those we remember now...

Lord, in your mercy,

Hear our prayer.


The Celebrant adds a concluding Collect.


Maundy Thursday: Most merciful God, receive our prayers, for the sake of Jesus Christ, the Host of our meal whose Body is our bread and whose Blood is our wine, who died and rose that we might live with you, now and forever. Amen.

Eucharistic Prayer 1

[EOW1, p. 57]


The Lord be with you.

And also with you.

Lift up your hearts.

We lift them to the Lord.

Let us give thanks to the Lord our God.

It is right to give our thanks and praise.


It is truly right, and good and joyful, to give you thanks, all-holy God, source of life and fountain of mercy …


Preface of Holy Week [BCP, p. 379]:

Through Jesus Christ our Lord. For our sins he was lifted high upon the cross, that he might draw the whole world to himself; and, by his suffering and death, he became the source of eternal salvation for all who put their trust in him.


Therefore, joining with Angels and Archangels and with the faithful of every generation, we lift our voices with all creation as we say:


Holy, holy, holy Lord, God of power and might,

Heaven and earth are full of your glory

Hosanna in the highest.

Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord.

Hosanna in the highest.


The people stand or kneel.


Blessed are you, gracious God, creator of the universe and giver of life. You formed us in your own image and called us to dwell in your infinite love. You gave the world into our care that we might be your faithful stewards and show forth your bountiful grace.


But we failed to honor your image in one another and in ourselves; we would not see your goodness in the world around us; and so we violated your creation, abused one another, and rejected your love. Yet you never ceased to care for us, and prepared the way of salvation for all people.


Through Abraham and Sarah you called us into covenant with you. You delivered us from slavery, sustained us in the wilderness, and raised up prophets to renew your promise of salvation. Then, in the fullness of time, you sent your eternal Word, made mortal flesh in Jesus. Born into the human family, and dwelling among us, he revealed your glory. Giving himself freely to death on the cross, he triumphed over evil, opening the way of freedom and life.


On the night before he died for us, Our Savior Jesus Christ took bread, and when he had given thanks to you, he broke it, and gave it to his friends, and said: “Take, eat: This is my Body which is given for you. Do this for the remembrance of me.”


As supper was ending, Jesus took the cup of wine, and when he had given thanks, he gave it to them, and said: “Drink this, all of you: This is my Blood of the new Covenant, which is poured out for you and for all for the forgiveness of sins. Whenever you drink it, do this for the remembrance of me.” Therefore we proclaim the mystery of faith:

Christ has died. Christ is risen. Christ will come again.


Remembering his death and resurrection, we now present to you from your creation this bread and this wine. By your Holy Spirit may they be for us the Body and Blood of our Savior Jesus Christ. Grant that we who share these gifts may be filled with the Holy Spirit and live as Christ’s Body in the world. Bring us into the everlasting heritage of your daughters and sons, that with Blessed Mary, Blessed Matthew, and all your saints, past, present, and yet to come, we may praise your Name for ever.


Through Christ and with Christ and in Christ, in the unity of the Holy Spirit, to you be honor, glory, and praise, for ever and ever. AMEN.



The Lord’s Prayer

[BCP, p. 364]


And now, as our Savior Christ has taught us, we are bold to say,


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 those who trespass against us. And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil. For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, for ever and ever. Amen.



The Fraction Anthem

[BCP, p. 364, 407]


Christ our Passover is sacrificed for us;

Therefore let us keep the feast.


Lamb of God, you take away the sin of the world:

Have mercy on us.

Lamb of God, you take away the sin of the world:

Have mercy on us.

Lamb of God, you take away the sin of the world:

Grant us your peace.


This is the Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world.

The Gifts of God for the people of God.



Choir Selection: 'Tis Midnight, and On Olive's Brow


1 'Tis midnight; and on Olives' brow

The star is dimmed that lately shone:

'Tis midnight; in the garden now,

The suffering Saviour prays alone.


2 'Tis midnight; and from all removed,

The Saviour wrestles lone with fears;

E'en that disciple whom He loved

Heeds not his Master's grief and tears.


3 'Tis midnight; and for others' guilt

The Man of sorrows weeps in blood;

Yet he that hath in anguish knelt

Is not forsaken by his God.


4 'Tis midnight; and from ether-plains

Is borne the song that angels know;

Unheard by mortals are the strains

That sweetly soothe the Saviour's woe.
