I will bless your name for ever, O God my King. or Alleluia!
The Lord is kind and full of compassion,
slow to anger, abounding in love.
How good is the Lord to all,
compassionate to all his creatures.
All your creatures shall thank you, O Lord,
and your friends shall repeat their blessing.
They shall speak of the glory of your reign
and declare your might, O God,
to make known to men your mighty deeds
and the glorious splendour of your reign.
Yours is an everlasting kingdom;
your rule lasts from age to age.
Responsorial Psalm for 5th Sunday of Easter
How loving is God – love without end, good to all, compassionate to all.
In the Lord’s Prayer Jesus taught us to ask God to put a limit on his love for us – perhaps by way of encouragement for us, in our turn, to love better:
…forgive us our trespasses as we forgive those who trespass against us…
- What helps you keep you mindful of the call to love generously?
- How confident can you be when you ask God to forgive you as you forgive others?
