Introit: Dignus est Agnus – Rev 5:12 and 1:6; Ps 72:1
(Choir) The Lamb who has been slain is worthy to receive power, and divinity,
and wisdom, and strength, and honor; let glory and dominion be his for ever and
ever. O God, give your judgment to the king, to a king’s son your justice. Glory...

Penitential Act
I confess to almighty God and to you my brothers and sisters that I have greatly sinned, in my thoughts and in my words, in what I have done, and in what I have failed to do; through my fault, through my fault, through my most grievous fault; therefore I ask blessed Mary, ever Virgin, all the Angels and Saints, and you my brothers and sisters to pray for me to the Lord our God.
May almighty God have mercy on us, forgive us our sins, and bring us to everlasting life.
. Amen.
First Reading: Dn 7:13-14
As the visions during the night continued, I saw one like a Son of man coming, on the clouds of heaven; when he reached the Ancient One and was presented before him, the one like a Son of man received dominion, glory, and kingship; all peoples, nations, and languages serve him. His dominion is an everlasting dominion that shall not be taken away, his kingship shall not be destroyed.
The word of the Lord.
. Thanks be to God.
Second Reading: Rv 1:5-8
Jesus Christ is the faithful witness, the firstborn of the dead and ruler of the kings of the earth. To him who loves us and has freed us from our sins by his blood, who has made us into a kingdom, priests for his God and Father, to him be glory and power forever and ever. Amen. Behold, he is coming amid the clouds, and every eye will see him, even those who pierced him. All the peoples of the earth will lament him. Yes. Amen. "I am the Alpha and the Omega, " says the Lord God, "the one who is and who was and who is to come, the almighty." The word of the Lord.
. Thanks be to God.
Alleluia: Benedictus qui venit – Mk 11:9, 10
. Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord!
Blessed is the kingdom of our father David that is to come!
. Alleluia, alleluia, alleluia!
Gospel: Jn 18:33b-37
Pilate said to Jesus, "Are you the King of the Jews?" Jesus answered, "Do you say this on your own or have others told you about me?" Pilate answered, "I am not a Jew, am I? Your own nation and the chief priests handed you over to me. What have you done?" Jesus answered, "My kingdom does not belong to this world. If my kingdom did belong to this world, my attendants would be fighting to keep me from being handed over to the Jews. But as it is, my kingdom is not here." So Pilate said to him, "Then you are a king?" Jesus answered, "You say I am a king. For this I was born and for this I came into the world, to testify to the truth. Everyone who belongs to the truth listens to my voice." The Gospel of the Lord.
. Praise to you, Lord Jesus Christ.
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, [Bow] and by the Holy Spirit was incarnate of the Virgin Mary, and became man. [Rise] 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.

Sedebit Dominus – Ps 29:10b, 11b Cantor, then all
1. Ascribe to the LORD, you heavenly powers, * ascribe to the LORD glory and strength. Ascribe to the LORD the glory of his name; * bow down before the LORD, majestic in holiness.
2. The voice of the LORD upon the waters, † the God of glory thunders; *

5. The LORD sat enthroned above the flood; * the LORD sits as king forever.
The LORD will give strength to his people, * the LORD will bless his people with peace.
