Hear my voice, O Lord, for I have called to you; be my help. Do not abandon or forsake me, O God, my Saviour!
FIRST READING: Ezekiel 17:22-24.
RESPONSORIAL PSALM: Psalm 29.
RESPONSE: It is good to give thanks to you, O Lord.
1. It is good to give thanks to the Lord, to make music to your name, O Most High, to proclaim your loving mercy in the morning, and your truth in the watches of the night. ℟
2. The just will flourish like the palm tree, and grow like a Lebanon cedar. Planted in the house of the Lord, they will flourish in the courts of our God. ℟
3. They will still bear fruit when they are old, still full of sap, still green, to proclaim that the Lord is upright. In him, my rock, there is no wrong. ℟
SECOND READING: 2 Corinthians 5:6-10.
The seed is the word of God, the sower is Christ; all who come to him will live for ever.
GOSPEL: Mark 4:26-34.
SPIRITUAL COMMUNION PRAYER:
I believe that you are present
in the Most Holy Sacrament.
I love You above all things,
and I desire to receive You in my soul.
Since I cannot at this moment
receive You sacramentally,
come at least spiritually into my heart.
I embrace You as if You were already there
and unite myself wholly to You.
Never permit me to be separated from You.
There is one thing I ask of the Lord, only this do I seek: to live in the house of the Lord all the days of my life
