Speak Lord: Loving Father.

Arles.jpg

O Lord, you are good and forgiving.

O Lord, you are good and forgiving,
full of love to all who call.
Give heed, O Lord, to my prayer
and attend to the sound of my voice.

O Lord, you are good and forgiving.

All the nations shall come to adore you
and glorify your name, O Lord:
for you are great and do marvellous deeds,
you who alone are God.

O Lord, you are good and forgiving.

But you, God of mercy and compassion,
slow to anger, O Lord,
abounding in love and truth,
turn and take pity on me.

O Lord, you are good and forgiving.

Psalm 85:5-6,9-10,15-16

 

The Responsorial Psalm at Mass tomorrow, the 16th Sunday of the Year, comes from the heart and mind of the child of God who is grateful for all that his Father has done for him

And if he can see what God has done, surely everyone else will too. For that the psalmist hopes, but closes again, eager to know again the love and mercy of God for him.
