The Second Sunday after the Epiphany
January 16, 2022 — Divine Service, Setting Three with Holy Communion
COLLECT OF THE DAY for EPIPHANY 2
The Lord be with you.
And with Thy spirit.
Let us pray. Almighty and everlasting God, who governs all things in heaven and on earth, mercifully hear the prayers of Your people and grant us Your peace through all our days; through Jesus Christ, Your Son, our Lord, who lives and reigns with You and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and forever.
HOLY GOSPEL John 2:1-11
The Holy Gospel according to St. John, the second chapter.
Glory be to Thee, O Lord.
On the third day there was a wedding at Cana in Galilee, and the mother of Jesus was there. Jesus also was invited to the wedding with his disciples. When the wine ran out, the mother of Jesus said to him, “They have no wine.” And Jesus said to her, “Woman, what does this have to do with me? My hour has not yet come.” His mother said to the servants, “Do whatever he tells you.”
Now there were six stone water jars there for the Jewish rites of purification, each holding twenty or thirty gallons. Jesus said to the servants, “Fill the jars with water.” And they filled them up to the brim. And he said to them, “Now draw some out and take it to the master of the feast.” So they took it. When the master of the feast tasted the water now become wine, and did not know where it came from (though the servants who had drawn the water knew), the master of the feast called the bridegroom and said to him, “Everyone serves the good wine first, and when people have drunk freely, then the poor wine. But you have kept the good wine until now.” This, the first of his signs, Jesus did at Cana in Galilee, and manifested his glory. And his disciples believed in him.
This is the Gospel of the Lord.
Praise be to Thee, O Christ.
PSALM Psalm 128
Blessed is everyone who | fears the LORD,*
who walks | in his ways!
You shall eat the fruit of the labor | of your hands;*
you shall be blessed, and it shall be | well with you.
Your wife will be like a fruitful vine with- | in your house;*
your children will be like olive shoots around your | table.
Behold, thus shall the | man be blessed*
who | fears the LORD.
The LORD bless you from | Zion!*
May you see the prosperity of Jerusalem all the days | of your life!
May you see your children’s | children!*
Peace be upon | Israel!
