You are just, O Lord, and your judgement is right; treat your servant in accord with your merciful love.
FIRST READING: Isaiah 35:4-7.
RESPONSORIAL PSALM: Psalm 146.
RESPONSE: My soul, give praise to the Lord!
1. It is the Lord who preserves fidelity forever,
who does justice to those who are oppressed.
It is he who gives bread to the hungry,
the Lord who sets prisoners free. ℟
2. It is the Lord who opens the eyes of the blind,
the Lord who raises up those who are bowed down.
It is the Lord who loves the just,
the Lord who protects the stranger. ℟
3. The Lord upholds the orphan and the widow,
but thwarts the path of the wicked.
The Lord will reign forever,
the God of Sion from age to age. ℟
SECOND READING: James 2:1-5.
Jesus was preaching the Gospel of the kingdom,
healing every disease and every infirmity among the people.
GOSPEL: Mark 7:31-37.
Like the deer that yearns for running streams,
so my soul is yearning for you, my God;
my soul is thirsting for God, the living God.
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.
