Speak Lord: Gather us in…

The just shall rejoice at the presence of God,
they shall exult and dance for joy.
O sing to the Lord, make music to his name;
rejoice in the Lord, exult at his presence.

Father of the orphan, defender of the widow,
such is God in his holy place.
God gives the lonely a home to live in;
he leads the prisoners forth into freedom:

You poured down, O God, a generous rain:
when your people were starved you gave them new life.
It was there that your people found a home,
prepared in your goodness, O God, for the poor.

Responsorial Psalm for 22nd Sunday in Ordinary Time
Psalm 67(68):4-7,10-11

The glory of God is humankind fully alive. We know our lives best, live them most fully in celebration and thanksgiving.

  • For what do you exult?
  • For what might you dance for joy?
