Confession

Blessed be the holy Trinity, one God, 

who forgives all our sin, whose mercy endures forever.  

Amen.

 Seeking reconciliation with God and our neighbor,

 let us remember the gift of baptism and confess our sin.

Silence

God of mercy,

we confess that we have sinned against you,

against one another,

and against the earth 

entrusted to our care.

We are worried and distracted 

by many things,

and we fail to love you 

above all else.

We store up treasures 

for ourselves and turn away 

from our neighbors in need. 

Forgive us, that we may live in 

the freedom of your Son,

Jesus Christ our Lord.  Amen.

Absolution

Greeting

The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, the love of God,

and the communion of the Holy Spirit be with you all.

And also with you.

Prayer of the Day

Glorious God, your generosity waters the world with goodness, and you cover creation with abundance. Awaken in us a hunger for the food that satisfies both body and spirit, and with this food fill all the starving world; through your Son, Jesus Christ, our Savior and Lord.

Amen.

Word

First Reading: Isaiah 55:1-5

Ho, everyone who thirsts, come to the waters; and you that have no

money, come, buy and eat! Come, buy wine and milk without 

money and without price. Why do you spend your money for that 

which is not bread, and your labor for that which does not satisfy? 

Listen carefully to me, and eat what is good, and delight yourselves 

in rich food. Incline your ear, and come to me; listen, so that you 

may live. I will make with you an everlasting covenant, my steadfast, 

sure love for David. See, I made him a witness to the peoples, a 

leader and commander for the peoples. See, you shall call nations 

that you do not know, and nations that do not know you shall run to 

you, because of the Lord your God, the Holy One of Israel, for he has 

glorified you.

The Word of the Lord.

Thanks be to God.

Psalm 145: 8-21

The Lord is gracious and full | of compassion,

slow to anger and abounding in | steadfast love.

Lord, you are | good to all,

and your compassion is over | all your works.

All your works shall praise | you, O Lord,

and your faithful | ones shall bless you.

They shall tell of the glory | of your kingdom

and speak | of your power,

that all people may know | of your power

and the glorious splendor | of your kingdom.

Your kingdom is an everlasting kingdom; your dominion endures through- | out all ages.

You, Lord, are faithful in all your words, and loving in | all your works.

The Lord upholds all | those who fall

and lifts up those who | are bowed down.

The eyes of all wait upon | you, O Lord,

and you give them their food | in due season.

You open | wide your hand

and satisfy the desire of every | living thing.

You are righteous in | all your ways

and loving in | all your works.

You are near to all who | call upon you,

to all who call up- | on you faithfully.

You fulfill the desire of | those who fear you;

you hear their | cry and save them.

You watch over all | those who love you,

but all the wicked you | shall destroy.

My mouth shall speak the praise | of the Lord;

let all flesh bless God’s holy name forev- | er and ever.

Gospel Acclamation         

Gospel

The Gospel according to…

Glory to you, O Lord!

Gospel: 14:13-21

Now when Jesus heard this, he withdrew from there in a boat to a deserted place by himself. But when the crowds heard it, they followed him on foot from the towns. When he went ashore, he saw a great crowd; and he had compassion for them and cured their sick. When it was evening, the disciples came to him and said, “This is a deserted place, and the hour is now late; send the crowds away so that they may go into the villages and buy food for themselves.” Jesus said to them, “They need not go away; you give them something to eat.” They replied, “We have nothing here but five loaves and two fish.” And he said, “Bring them here to me.” Then he ordered the crowds to sit down on the grass. Taking the five loaves and the two fish, he looked up to heaven, and blessed and broke the loaves, and gave them to the disciples, and the disciples gave them to the crowds. And all ate and were filled; and they took up what was left over of the broken pieces, twelve baskets full. And those who ate were about five thousand men, besides women and children.

This is the Gospel of the Lord.

Praise to you, O Christ.

Words of Institution

In the night in which he was betrayed,

Our Lord Jesus took bread, 

and gave thanks; broke it,

and gave it to his disciples,

saying: Take and eat;

this is my body, given for you.

Do this in remembrance of me.

Again, after supper, he took the cup,

gave thanks, and gave it for all to drink,

saying: This cup is the new covenant in my blood, 

shed for you and for all people for the forgiveness of sin.

Do this in remembrance of me.
