During Holy Week,
rather than repeat the readings of Palm Sunday
or anticipate the readings of Easter Sunday,
Living Eucharist features a reading from the liturgy of that day.
My lips will tell of your help.
In you, O Lord, I take refuge;
let me never be put to shame.
In your justice rescue me, free me:
pay heed to me and save me.
Be a rock where I can take refuge,
a mighty stronghold to save me;
for you are my rock, my stronghold.
Free me from the hand of the wicked.
It is you, O Lord, who are my hope,
my trust, O Lord, since my youth.
On you I have leaned from my birth,
from my mother’s womb you have been my help.
My lips will tell of your justice
and day by day of your help.
O God, you have taught me from my youth
and I proclaim your wonders still.
Responsorial Psalm for the Tuesday of Holy Week
The Lord Jesus speaks of the faithfulness of his Father, and of his love and mercy.
He is never silent – but speaks in words and works even yet.
