Our Father…

Psalm 6
 

Priest: Deal not with us, Lord, as our sins deserve.

All: Nor take vengeance on us for our transgressions.

Priest: Help us, O God, our Savior.

All: And deliver us, O Lord, for your name's sake.

Priest: Lord, do not keep in mind our former sins.

All: Let us soon know your compassion, for we are exceedingly poor.

Priest: St. Sebastian, pray for us.

All: That we may be worthy of Christ's promise.

Priest: Lord, heed my prayer.

All: And let my cry be heard by you.

Priest: The Lord be with you.

All: And with your spirit.

Priest: Let us pray.  Hear us, O God, our Savior, and by the prayers of glorious Mary, Mother of God, and ever a Virgin, of St. Sebastian, your martyr, and of all the saints, deliver your people from your wrath, and in your bounty let them feel certain of your mercy.

Lord, mercifully heed our supplications, and heal our infirmities of body and soul; so that knowing your forgiveness we may ever rejoice in your blessing.

We beg you, Lord, to hear our sincere pleas, and graciously to avert this plague which afflicts us; so that mortal hearts may acknowledge that such scourges come from your wrath and cease only when you are moved to pity; through Christ our Lord. All: Amen.
