Main Celebrant: The Lord be with you

ALL: AND ALSO WITH YOU

Main Celebrant: Lift up your hearts

ALL: WE LIFT THEM UP TO THE LORD

Main Celebrant: Let us give thanks to the Lord our God

ALL: IT IS RIGHT TO GIVE YOU THANKS AND PRAISE

Main Celebrant: Father in heaven, you love us.
You made all things.
Father, you made the rivers that gave us water and fish.
You made the mountains and the flat country.
You made the kangaroos and goannas and birds for us.

ALL: HOLY, HOLY, HOLY LORD, EARTH AND HEAVEN TRULY ARE THE LORDS

Main Celebrant: Father, you send us the sun to keep us warm,
And the rain to make the grass grow and to fill the waterholes.
Father, you made us your people.

ALL: HOLY, HOLY, HOLY LORD, EARTH AND HEAVEN TRULY ARE THE LORDS

Main Celebrant: Father, you called us to be your children
and we would not follow you.
You sent Jesus, your only Son, to be our brother and friend.
He told us about you.

ALL: HOLY, HOLY, HOLY LORD, EARTH AND HEAVEN TRULY ARE THE LORDS

Main Celebrant: He was born on Christmas day. His mother was Mary.
He taught the people. They listened to him.
Bad people nailed him to the cross.
He rose up again alive.
He made us all his brothers and sisters when we were baptised.
We join together now and sing:
ALL: HOLY, HOLY, HOLY LORD, EARTH AND HEAVEN TRULY ARE THE LORDS

Main Celebrant: Father in heaven, you are truly good.
You make us good in our hearts.
Your Holy Spirit will come upon these two presents +
that we hold up to you.
Through your word they will become for us the body
and blood of your only Son, Jesus the Lord.

ALL: YOU ARE OUR FATHER, YOU LIVE IN HEAVEN,
WE TALK TO YOU, FATHER YOU ARE GOOD.

Main Celebrant: A long time ago, in the night, Jesus and his friends eat together.
Before he dies, Jesus takes the bread.
He holds it up to you Father. He calls you good, Father.
He breaks the bread.
And he says to his friends:
Take this, all of you, and eat it: this is my body which will be given up for you.

ALL: JESUS IS LORD, JESUS IS LORD, JESUS IS LORD
AND WE BELIEVE HIS WORD.

Main Celebrant: Then he takes the wine in the cup.
He holds it up to you, Father. He says to his friends:
Take this, all of you, and drink from it: this is the cup of my blood,
the blood of the new and everlasting covenant.
It will be shed for you and for all so that sins may be forgiven.
Do this in memory of me.

ALL: JESUS IS LORD, JESUS IS LORD, JESUS IS LORD
AND WE BELIEVE HIS WORD.

Main Celebrant: Let us say together:

ALL: THE BREAD HAS BECOME THE BODY OF THE LORD.
THE WINE HAS BECOME THE BLOOD OF THE LORD.
WE CANNOT SEE THIS.
BY THE WORD OF THE LORD JESUS, WE BELIEVE IT.

Main Celebrant: The Lord Jesus died for us.

ALL: WE PRAISE YOU, FATHER. WE BLESS YOU, FATHER.
WE THANK YOU, FATHER. FATHER, YOU ARE GOOD.

Main Celebrant: The Lord rose again alive and went to heaven.

ALL: WE PRAISE YOU, FATHER. WE BLESS YOU, FATHER.
WE THANK YOU, FATHER. FATHER, YOU ARE GOOD.

Main Celebrant: The Lord Jesus comes again.

ALL: WE PRAISE YOU, FATHER. WE BLESS YOU, FATHER.
WE THANK YOU, FATHER. FATHER, YOU ARE GOOD.

Main Celebrant: Father in heaven, we give you these two presents.
This living bread it is the body of the Lord Jesus.
This living wine it is the blood of the Lord Jesus.

Your Holy Spirit will make us of one mind and one heart.
You call us here. We are happy with you.
We will follow what you say.

Soon we will eat that food, the body and blood of your Son.
Then we will be of one mind and one heart.

Father in heaven, remember Benedict, our Pope
and Denis, our Bishop; remember all Bishops and Priests.

Remember all the people of God, especially those who are here.
Remember all your people who have died as your friends.

ALL: WE PRAISE YOU, FATHER. WE BLESS YOU, FATHER.
WE THANK YOU, FATHER. FATHER, YOU ARE GOOD.

ALL: THROUGH HIM, WITH HIM, IN HIM,
IN THE UNITY OF THE HOLY SPIRIT,
ALL GLORY AND HONOUR IS YOURS, ALMIGHTY FATHER,
FOREVER AND EVER. AMEN.
