Speak Lord: For by your help we are almost there!

This day was made by the Lord: we rejoice and are glad.
or
Alleluia, alleluia, alleluia!

Give thanks to the Lord for he is good,
for his love has no end.
Let the sons of Israel say:
‘His love has no end.’

This day was made by the Lord: we rejoice and are glad.
or
Alleluia, alleluia, alleluia!

The Lord’s right hand has triumphed;
his right hand raised me up.
I shall not die, I shall live
and recount his deeds.

This day was made by the Lord: we rejoice and are glad.
or
Alleluia, alleluia, alleluia!

The stone which the builders rejected
has become the corner stone.
This is the work of the Lord,
a marvel in our eyes.

This day was made by the Lord: we rejoice and are glad.
or
Alleluia, alleluia, alleluia!

Psalm 117:1-2,16-17,22-23

The Responsorial Psalm at Mass tomorrow celebrates the reversal achieved by God who is love, and enjoyed by those he saves.

We celebrate God’s achievement in the particular that is the Resurrection of Jesus.

However that achievement of God is available to us, by grace, in our every moment – our every stumble, our every success. The love that is God is there for us in every moment, and the invitation to us is to enter into his will, his life.

This day was made by the Lord – who is for us and with us, world without end: we rejoice and are glad.
