1 Thus saith the Lord: Keep ye judgment, and do justice: for my salvation is near to come, and my justice to be revealed.

2 Blessed is the man that doth this, and the son of man that shall lay hold on this: that keepeth the sabbath from profaning it, that keepeth his hands from doing any evil.

3a And let not the son of the stranger, that adhereth to the Lord, speak, saying: The Lord will divide and separate me from his people.

6 And the children of the stranger that adhere to the Lord, to worship him, and to love his name, to be his servants: every one that keepeth the sabbath from profaning it, and that holdeth fast my covenant:

7 I will bring them into my holy mount, and will make them joyful in my house of prayer: their holocausts, and their victims shall please me upon my altar: for my house shall be called the house of prayer, for all nations.

8 The Lord God, who gathereth the scattered of Israel, saith: I will still gather unto him his congregation.

Responsorial Psalm: Psalms 67: 2-3, 5, 7-8

R. (4) O God, let all the nations praise you!

2 May God have mercy on us, and bless us: may he cause the light of his countenance to shine upon us, and may he have mercy on us.

3 That we may know thy way upon earth: thy salvation in all nations.

R. O God, let all the nations praise you!

5 Let the nations be glad and rejoice: for thou judgest the people with justice, and directest the nations upon earth.

R. O God, let all the nations praise you!

7 The earth hath yielded her fruit. May God, our God bless us,

8 May God bless us: and all the ends of the earth fear him.

R. O God, let all the nations praise you!

Alleluia

Come, Lord, bring us your peace that we may rejoice before you with a perfect heart.

R. Alleluia, alleluia.

Gospel: John 5: 33-36

33 You sent to John, and he gave testimony to the truth.

34 But I receive not testimony from man: but I say these things, that you may be saved.

35 He was a burning and a shining light: and you were willing for a time to rejoice in his light.

36 But I have a greater testimony than that of John: for the works which the Father hath given me to perfect; the works themselves, which I do, give testimony of me, that the Father hath sent me.

  1. Thank you for this beautiful space for anyone who wishes to use it. I pray for all the lonely, sick, sad, down trodden people, especially a family member who needs Jesus to heal her. I’m humbled by the many gifts Jesus has bestowed upon myself and my family. I know He hears me because I feel his presence in the faces I meet along my way. I thank You Jesus for all my answered prayers. God bless all who are reading this message. Amen
