Psalm at today’s Mass

This was the Psalm prayed at Masses throughout the world today.  The words cut deep but are a reminder that the troubles we now experience are not new, there have always been tensions and pressure in life.  God is the only real alternative ….

Rescue me, God, from my foes;
protect me from those who attack me.
O rescue me from those who do evil
and save me from blood-thirsty men.

See, they lie in wait for my life;
powerful men band together against me.
For no offence, no sin of mine, Lord,
for no guilt of mine they rush to take their stand.

O my Strength, it is you to whom I turn,
for you, O God, are my stronghold,
the God who shows me love.

As for me, I will sing of your strength
and each morning acclaim your love
for you have been my stronghold,
a refuge in the day of my distress.

O my Strength, it is you to whom I turn,
for you, O God, are my stronghold,
the God who shows me love.

  1. Thank you, Father Vincent.

    I need Your presence every passing hour;
    What but Your grace can foil the tempter’s power?
    Who but Yourself my guide and strength can be?
    Through cloud and sunshine, Lord, abide with me.
    – Henry Francis Lyte
