Mass for the Baptism of the Lord, Year C

Here is Mass for the Baptism of the Lord from Sacred Heart Catholic Church, Bilton, Rugby.

 Entrance Antiphon: After the Lord was baptised, the heavens were opened,  and the Spirit descended upon him like a dove, and the voice of the Father  thundered: This is my beloved Son, with whom I am well pleased.  

First Reading: A reading from the prophet Isaiah. The glory of the Lord shall be revealed and all mankind shall see it. 

Response: Psalm 103. Bless the Lord my soul! Lord God Lord God how great you are. 

Second Reading: A reading from the letter of St Paul to Titus. He saved us by the cleansing water of rebirth and by renewing us with the Holy  Spirit.  

Gospel Acclamation: Alleluia, alleluia! Someone is coming, said John, someone greater than I. He will baptise you with the Holy Spirit and with fire. Alleluia!  

Gospel: A reading from the holy Gospel according to Luke. While Jesus after his own baptism was at prayer, heaven opened.

THE NICENE CREED- I believe in one God, the Father almighty, maker of heaven and earth,  of all things visible and invisible. I believe in one Lord Jesus Christ, the Only Begotten Son of  God, born of the Father before all ages. God from God, Light from Light, true God from true  

God, begotten, not made, consubstantial with the Father; through him all things were made.  For us men and for our salvation he came down from heaven, and by the Holy Spirit was  incarnate of the Virgin Mary, and became man. For our sake he was crucified under Pontius  Pilate, he suffered death and was buried, and rose again on the third day in accordance with  the Scriptures. He ascended into heaven and is seated at the right hand of the Father. He  will come again in glory to judge the living and the dead and his kingdom will have no end. I  believe in the Holy Spirit, the Lord, the giver of life, who proceeds from the Father and the  Son, who with the Father and the Son is adored and glorified, who has spoken through the  prophets. I believe in one, holy, catholic and apostolic Church. I confess one Baptism for the  forgiveness of sins and I look forward to the resurrection of the dead and the life of the  world to come. Amen 

THE GLORIA – Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace to people of good will. We  praise you, we bless you, we adore you, we glorify you, we give you thanks for your great  glory, Lord God, heavenly King, O God, almighty Father. Lord Jesus Christ, Only Begotten  Son, Lord God, Lamb of God, Son of the Father, you take away the sins of the world, have  

mercy on us; you take away the sins of the world, receive our prayer; you are seated at the right hand of the Father, have mercy on us. For you alone are the Holy One, you alone are  the Lord, you alone are the Most High, Jesus Christ, with the Holy Spirit in the glory of God  the Father. Amen.
