Rejoice, Jerusalem, and all who love her. Be joyful, all who were in mourning; exult and be satisfied at her consoling breast.
2 Chronicles 36:14-16, 19-23.
RESPONSORIAL PSALM: Psalm 137.
O let my tongue cleave to my palate if I remember you not.
1. By the rivers of Babylon there we sat and wept, remembering Sion; on the poplars that grew there we hung up our harps. ℟
2. For it was there that they asked us, our captors, for songs, our oppressors, for joy ‘sing to us,’ they said, ‘one of Sion’s songs’. ℟
3. O how could we sing the song of the Lord on foreign soil? If I forget you, Jerusalem, let my right hand wither! ℟
4. O let my tongue cleave to my palate if I remember you not, if I prize not Jerusalem as the first of my joys! ℟
SECOND READING: Ephesians 2:4-10.
Glory and praise to you, O Christ. God so loved the world that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should have eternal life. Glory and praise to you, O Christ.
GOSPEL: John 3:14-21.
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.
Jerusalem is built as a city bonded as one together. It is there that the tribes go up, the tribes of the Lord, to praise the name of the Lord.
