    Save us, O Lord, without you we are lost!

    Lord Jesus, you whose name means “Saviour”,

    Sunday
    On Sunday, our participation in the Eucharist has special importance. Sunday, like the Jewish Sabbath, is meant to be a day which heals our relationships with God, with ourselves, with others and with the world. Sunday is the day of the Resurrection, the ‘first day’ of the new creation, whose first fruits are the Lord’s risen humanity, the pledge of the final transfiguration of all created reality. It also proclaims ‘man’s eternal rest in God’.  In this way, Christian spirituality incorporates the value of relaxation and festivity.

    We tend to demean contemplative rest as something unproductive and unnecessary, but this is to do away with the very thing which is most important about work: its meaning. We are called to include in our work a dimension of receptivity and gratuity, which is quite different from mere inactivity. Rather, it is another way of working, which forms part of our very essence. It protects human action from becoming empty activism; it also prevents that unfettered greed and sense of isolation which make us seek personal gain to the detriment of all else.

    The law of weekly rest forbade work on the seventh day, ‘so that your ox and your donkey may have rest, and the son of your maidservant, and the stranger, may be refreshed’ (Ex 23:12).   Rest opens our eyes to the larger picture and gives us renewed sensitivity to the rights of others. And so the day of rest, centred on the Eucharist, sheds it light on the whole week, and
    motivates us to greater concern for nature and the poor.
    (Pope Francis, Laudato Sí, No. 237)

    Stay with Us, Lord
    Stay with us, Lord Jesus Christ!

    Stay with us, Lord: behold, evening is coming,
    and we still haven’t recognised your face
    in each of our brothers and sisters
    Stay with us, Lord Jesus Christ!

    Stay with us, Lord: behold, evening is coming,
    and we still haven’t shared your bread
    in thanksgiving with all our brothers and sisters.
    Stay with us, Lord Jesus Christ!

    Stay with us, Lord: behold, evening is coming,
    and we still haven’t recognised your Word
    in the words of all our brothers and sisters,
    Stay with us, Lord Jesus Christ!

    Stay with us, Lord, behold, evening is coming,
    and our hearts are still too slow to believe
    that you had to die in order to rise again.
    Stay with us, Lord Jesus Christ!

    Stay with us, Lord, for our night itself becomes day
    when you are there! Stay with us, Lord Jesus Christ!
