To you, I lift up my soul, O my God.
In you, I have trusted; let me not be put to shame.
Nor let my enemies exult over me;
and let none who hope in you be put to shame.
FIRST READING: Jeremiah 33:14-16.
RESPONSORIAL PSALM: Psalm 25.
RESPONSE: To you, O Lord, I lift up my soul.
1. O Lord, make me know your ways.
Teach me your paths.
Guide me in your truth, and teach me;
for you are the God of my salvation. ℟
2. Good and upright is the Lord;
he shows the way to sinners.
He guides the humble in right judgement;
to the humble he teaches his way. ℟
3. All the Lord’s paths are mercy and faithfulness,
for those who keep his covenant and commands.
The Lord’s secret is for those who fear him;
to them he reveals his covenant. ℟
SECOND READING: 1 Thessalonians 3:12-4:2.
Show us your merciful love, O Lord,
and grant us your salvation.
GOSPEL: Luke 21:25-28, 34-36.
The Lord will bestow his bounty,
and our earth shall yield its increase.
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.
