We're glad that you have come
to share your life with us

Reading/s
Reader: A reading from the Gospel of Luke, (2:41-51)

The Boy Jesus in the Temple


Now every year his parents went to Jerusalem for the festival of the Passover. And
when he was twelve years old, they went up as usual for the festival. When the
festival was ended and they started to return, the boy Jesus stayed behind in
Jerusalem, but his parents did not know it. Assuming that he was in the group of
travellers, they went a day’s journey. Then they started to look for him among their
relatives and friends. When they did not find him, they returned to Jerusalem to
search for him. After three days they found him in the temple, sitting among the
teachers, listening to them and asking them questions. And all who heard him were
amazed at his understanding and his answers. When his parents* saw him they were
astonished; and his mother said to him, ‘Child, why have you treated us like this?
Look, your father and I have been searching for you in great anxiety.’ He said to them,
‘Why were you searching for me? Did you not know that I must be in my Father’s
house?’ But they did not understand what he said to them. Then he went down with
them and came to Nazareth, and was obedient to them. His mother treasured all
these things in her heart.

All: Praise be to you Lord Jesus Christ.

Blessings for parents and guardians


Reader: Almighty God, You know what it is like to be both Mother and Father to us
all. We ask You, the source and sustainer of all life, to bless all parents and guardians
in the role you have set before them.
Gift their lips with the wisdom to speak the truth so it can be heard.
Gift their ears with sensitivity as they listen to the needs of us, their children.
Gift their souls with a faith radiating your intimate presence in their life.
Gift their minds with patience and understanding to handle the changing needs and
demands placed before them each day.
Guide their hearts as they seek out and reconcile the areas of conflict and pain that
may exist.
Through all these things, may your abundant blessings continue to affirm and
support all they do as parents and guardians.

We ask this blessing upon each of them, in the name of the Father, the Son and the
Holy Spirit.

Amen.

Power of Your Love

Lord I come to You


Let my heart be changed, renewed
Flowing from the grace
That I've found in You
Lord I've come to know
The weaknesses I see in me
Will be stripped away
By the power of Your love
Hold me close
Let Your love surround me
Bring me near
Draw me to Your side
And as I wait
I'll rise up like the eagle
And I will soar with You
Your Spirit leads me on
In the power of Your love
Lord unveil my eyes
Let me see You face to face
The knowledge of Your love
As You live in me
Lord renew my mind
As Your will unfolds in my life
In living every day
By the power of Your love
Hold me close
Let Your love surround me
Bring me near
Draw me to Your side
And as I wait
I'll rise up like the eagle
And I will soar with You
Your Spirit leads me on
In the power of Your love
Hold me close
Let Your love surround me
Bring me near
Draw me to Your side
And as I wait
I'll rise up like the eagle
And I will soar with You
Your Spirit leads me on
In the power of Your love
And I will soar with You
Your Spirit leads me on
In the power of Your love
And I will soar with You
Your Spirit leads me on
In the power of Your love
