Praying at Home Today: Tuesday 24 May 2022
Praying at home today:
The heavenly Jerusalem, attracting all nations and all peoples
The Lord is risen!
He is risen indeed. Alleluia!
We hope these readings, prayers, music and short reflection will help you stay in touch with the Church and to sustain you on your journey through life.
Opening to the Word
You can spend a few moments in silence,
focussing on your breathing
to become more mindful of the present moment
and to open yourself more fully
to God’s presence within you.
I saw no temple in the city,
for its temple is the Lord God the Almighty and the Lamb.
And the city has no need of sun or moon to shine on it,
for the glory of God is its light, and its lamp is the Lamb.
The nations will walk by its light,
and the kings of the earth will bring their glory into it.
Et templum non vidi in ea:
Dominus enim Deus omnipotens templum illius est, et Agnus.
Et civitas non eget sole neque luna ut luceant in ea,
nam claritas Dei illuminavit eam, et lucerna ejus est Agnus.
Et ambulabunt gentes in lumine ejus:
et reges terrae afferent gloriam suam et honorem in illam.
Je ne vis pas de temple dans la ville,
car le Seigneur, le Dieu tout-puissant, est son temple, ainsi que l’Agneau.
La ville n’a besoin ni du soleil ni de la lune pour l’éclairer,
car la gloire de Dieu l’éclaire et l’Agneau est son flambeau.
Les nations marcheront à sa lumière
et les rois de la terre y apporteront leur gloire.

The Lord’s Prayer
in English, Latin and French
– The Lord’s Prayer
Our Father in heaven,
hallowed be your name.
Your Kingdom come,
your will be done,
on earth as in heaven.
Give us today our daily bread.
Forgive us our sins,
as we forgive those
who sin against us.
Lead us not into temptation,
but deliver us from evil.
For the kingdom,
the power and the glory are yours,
now and for ever.
– Pater noster
Pater noster, qui es in cælis;
sanctificetur nomen tuum:
adveniat regnum tuum;
fiat voluntas tua,
sicut in cælo, et in terra.
Panem nostrum cotidianum da nobis hodie:
et dimitte nobis debita nostra,
sicut et nos dimittimus debitoribus nostris:
et ne nos inducas in tentationem:
sed libera nos a malo.
Quia tuum est regnum,
et potestas, et gloria, in saecula.
– La Prière du Seigneur (2017)
Notre Père, qui es aux cieux,
que ton nom soit sanctifié,
que ton règne vienne,
que ta volonté soit faite sur la terre comme au ciel.
Donne-nous aujourd’hui notre pain de ce jour.
Pardonne-nous nos offenses,
comme nous pardonnons aussi à ceux qui nous ont offensés.
Et ne nous laisse pas entrer en tentation
mais délivre-nous du Mal.
Car c’est à toi qu’appartiennent le règne,
la puissance et la gloire
pour les siècles des siècles. Amen.
from whom all good things arise:
grant such grace to those who call on you,
that, by your inspiration,
we may ponder those things that are right,
and, by your guidance, do them;
through Jesus Christ, our Lord,
who lives and reigns with you,
in the unity of the Holy Spirit,
one God, world without end. Amen.
Returning to the world
Let us bless the Lord.
Thanks be to God.
Thank you for joining us in praying at home.
Oremus pro invicem.
