For the feast of St. Thomas the Apostle
O Lord, open my lips. And my mouth shall declare your praise.
The heavens proclaim the glory of God and the firmament shows forth the work of his hands. Day unto day takes up the story and night unto night makes known the message. No speech, no word, no voice is heard yet their span extends through all the earth, their words to the utmost bounds of the world.
Reading Eph. 2:20-22
You are fellow citizens of the saints and members of the household of God. You form a building which rises on the foundation of the apostles and prophets, with Christ Jesus himself as the capstone. Through him the whole structure is fitted together and takes shape as a holy temple in the Lord; in him you are being built into this temple, to become a dwelling place for God in the Spirit.
We pray Lord, increase our faith. Come, Lord Jesus! We pray Lord, increase our hope. Come, Lord Jesus! We pray Lord, increase our charity. Come, Lord Jesus!
Father, Thank you for making us your children. Help us always to live in your light. We ask this through Jesus your Son who lives with you and the Holy Spirit. Amen.
