INTROIT ANTIPHON: Shower down, you heavens, from above, and let the clouds rain
down righteousness. Let the earth open up, so that salvation will produce fruit.
ANTIPHON PARAPHRASE: Let righteousness rain from above. Let earth receive God's saving love.
INTROIT PSALM: The heavens tell about the glory of God. The expanse of the sky proclaims the work of his hands.
Their voice goes out into all the earth, and their word reaches the end of the world.
God has pitched a tent for the sun in the heavens. It celebrates like a champion who has run his race.
It sets out from one end of the heavens. It runs until it reaches the other end.
GRADUAL: The LORD is near to all who call on him, to all who call on him in truth.
My mouth will speak the praise of the LORD. Let all flesh bless his holy name forever and ever.
ACCLAMATION: Alleluia, alleluia! Stir up your might. Come with salvation for us. Alleluia.
