keep silence and stand with fear and trembling, and lift itself above all earthly thought. For the King of kings and Lord of lords, Christ our God, cometh forth to be our oblation, and to be given for Food to the faithful. Before Him come the choirs of angels with every principality and power; the Cherubim with many eyes, and winged Seraphim, who veil their faces as they shout exultingly the hymn: Alleluia! Text: The Liturgy of St. James

Choral Benediction: Irish Blessing ― Alexander Tilley (b. 1944) May the road rise up to meet you. May the wind be always at your back. May the sun shine warm; the rain fall soft upon your fields. And until we meet again, may the God who loves us all, hold you in the palm of h is hand!

READINGS THIS WEEK COLLECT Almighty God, who sent your servant John the Baptist to prepare your people to welcome the Messiah, inspire us, the ministers and stewards of your truth, to turn our disobedient hearts to you, that when the Christ shall come again to be our judge, we may stand with confidence before his glory; who is alive and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever. PRAYER OVER THE GIFTS God our strength, we are nothing without you. Receive all we offer you this day as you sustain us with your mercy; in the name of Jesus Christ our Lord. PRAYER AFTER COMMUNION Faithful God, we thank you for feeding us with this heavenly banquet. Help us always to hear the prophet's call to turn our hearts to you; in the name of Jesus Christ the Lord. READING FROM THE BOOK OF BARUCH DECEMBER 9, 2012

Take off the garment of your sorrow and affliction, O Jerusalem, and put on forever the beauty of the glory from God. Put on the robe of the righteousness that comes from God; put on your head the diadem of the glory of the Everlasting; for God will show your splendour everywhere under heaven. For God will give you evermore the name, Righteous Peace, Godly Glory." Arise, O Jerusalem, stand upon the height; look toward the east, and see your children gathered from west and east at the word of the Holy One, rejoicing that God has remembered them. For they went out from you on foot, led away by their enemies; but God will bring them back to you, carried in glory, as on a royal throne. For God has ordered that every high mountain and the everlasting hills be made low and the valleys filled up, to make level ground, so that Israel may walk safely in the glory of God. The woods and every fragrant tree have shaded Israel at God's command. For God will lead Israel with joy, in the light of his glory, with the mercy and righteousness that come from him. BARUCH 5:1-9


A READING FROM THE LETTER OF PAUL TO THE PHILIPPIANS I thank my God every time I remember you, -constantly praying with joy in every one of my prayers for all of you, -because of your sharing in the gospel from the first day until now. -I am confident of this, that the one who began a good work among you will bring it to completion by the day of Jesus Christ. -It is right for me to think this way about all of you, because you hold me in your heart, for all of you share in God's grace with me, both in my imprisonment and in the defence and confirmation of the gospel. -For God is my witness, how I long for all of you with the compassion of Christ Jesus. And this is my prayer, that your love may overflow more and more with knowledge and full insight -to help you to determine what is best, so that in the day of Christ you may be pure and blameless, -having produced the harvest of righteousness that comes through Jesus Christ for the glory and praise of God.— PHILIPPIANS 1:3-11

In the fifteenth year of the reign of Emperor Tiberius, when Pontius Pilate was governor of Judea, and Herod was ruler of Galilee, and his brother Philip ruler of the region of Ituraea and Trachonitis, and Lysanias ruler of Abilene, during the high priesthood of Annas and Caiaphas, the word of God came to John son of Zechariah in the wilderness. He went into all the region around the Jordan, proclaiming a baptism of repentance for the forgiveness of sins, -as it is written in the book of the words of the prophet Isaiah, "The voice of one crying out in the wilderness: 'Prepare the way of the Lord, make his paths straight. Every valley shall be filled, and every mountain and hill shall be made low, and the crooked shall be made straight, and the rough ways made smooth; -and all flesh shall see the salvation of God.'" LUKE 3:1-6

This Morning’s Music

For many, Advent just isn’t Advent until Thomas Campion’s “Never Weather-beaten Sail” is THE HOLY GOSPEL OF OUR heard. With its focus on expectaLORD JESUS CHRIST ACCORD- tion and longing, it has become the quintessential Advent text ING TO LUKE DECEMBER 9, 2012


and we shall hear it in several of its guises throughout the Advent season. A composer, poet and physician, Campion was born in London, and his early attempts at finding a career were, in a word, unspectacular. He left Cambridge after four years without obtaining a degree and then entered Gray’s Inn where an unsuccessful nine year flirtation with a law degree ensued. In 1605, he received his medical degree from the University of Caen in Normandy. He wrote over a hundred lute songs, masques for dancing, and an authoritative technical treatise on music but is best known today for this morning’s introit, the text of which has been a favorite of many composers since. David Ashley White is the Director of the University of Houston’s Moores School of Music
and is a Professor of Composition and Music Theory in that school. His compositions - both sacred and secular are widely performed and his hymns are found in numerous denomination hymnbooks. While this text has been perhaps most famously set by Handel, White’s “Comfort, Comfort Ye my People” combines 6/4 and 3/2 rhythms to successfully capture the longing, the expression of desire, and the muted intensity of Isaiah’s prophecy. Our service concludes with Alec Tilley’s setting of the traditional Irish benediction. Note the harmonies and the alterations in dynamics and tempi of “and until we meet again.” Tilley, both a member of the Cathedral’s Congregational Council (and even more importantly from my standpoint) the Cathedral Choir, has contributed, in addition to this morning’s mass setting, numerous anthems, canticles, and benedictions since his arrival here some years ago.

Thanks and a Preview

Thanks are extended to both Margaret de Carvalho and Mary Stone for being with us on November 14 at Saints Alive to bring news of the Mothers' Union, the largest Chritian organization in the world. We appreciate, as well, the tech support of our Dean for their presentation!! Too bad that the weather was so miserable, as it kept a number away. Did you know that at the time of the Cathedral's Silver Jubilee in 1935, there was a Mothers' Union branch at the Cathedral? Thanks to super sleuth, Marjorie Austin, for discovering that detail! We are delighted to have Cathedral member, Susan Drain, a member of Spiritual Directors International, join us for Saints Alive on Wednesday, December 12; 2:00 - 3:30, on the topic of Spiritual Guidance. All are invited to come and explore with Susan the idea of spiritual guidance and its role in deepening spiritual life. Spiritual guidance, exercised within the diocesan guidelines for this ministry, assists those on a spiritual journey to discern God's will in their lives. Susan brings a contemplative approach to spiritual deepening and her intent on December 12 is to explain what Anglicans mean by spiritual guidance / spiritual direction, to talk about a contemplative approach to spirituality, to promote the Atlantic Jubilee program, and to answer questions. Intrigued by this teaser? Mark your calendars and plan on attending Saints Alive on December 12 - all are welcome.

From the National Church Quebec becomes 11th diocese to offer same-sex blessings By Staff Same-sex couples in the diocese of Quebec will soon be able to receive a blessing of their civil union, according to the Anglican diocese’s newspaper, the Gazette. Quebec’s diocesan synod, which met November 2 to 4, passed a motion supporting Bishop Dennis Drainville’s wish to permit the blessing of same-gender unions. The motion also requests the creation of a working group to advise the bishop on how a “pastoral response” can be implemented for those seeking to have their union blessed. The diocesan newspaper reported that of the 70 synod members, fewer than 10 voted against the motion on the grounds that “the blessing of homosexual couples contradicts biblical teaching.” In his charge to synod, Drainville expressed his intention to provide a rite of blessing and pastoral support for persons living in “committed, same-gender relationships.” This blessing is not a marriage, he emphasized, but rather “the blessing of civil union that has already taken place.” No cleric or congregation will be obligated to perform same-gender blessings, he added. This ministry will “simply be an option…which is being offered in an increasing number of parts of the Anglican Church of Canada.” Quebec becomes the 11 th diocese in the Anglican Church of Canada to offer same-sex blessings. The others include New Westminster, Ottawa, Huron, Niagara, Toronto, British Columbia, Montreal, Nova Scotia and Prince Edward Island, Edmonton, and Rupert’s Land. The Anglican Parishes of the Central Interior (APCI) has passed a motion asking its bishop to allow clergy “whose conscience permits” to bless BULLETIN NOTICES
