Invitatory for Sunday in the 12th week of Ordinary Time

Play

Lord, open my lips.
And my mouth will proclaim your praise.

Ant. Come, let us worship Jesus, whose heart was wounded for love of us.

Psalm 95

Come, let us sing to the Lord
and shout with joy to the Rock who saves us.
Let us approach him with praise and thanksgiving
and sing joyful songs to the Lord.

Ant. Come, let us worship Jesus, whose heart was wounded for love of us.

The Lord is God, the mighty God,
the great king over all the gods.
He holds in his hands the depths of the earth
and the highest mountains as well
He made the sea; it belongs to him,
the dry land, too, for it was formed by his hands.

Ant. Come, let us worship Jesus, whose heart was wounded for love of us.

Come, then, let us bow down and worship,
bending the knee before the Lord, our maker,
For he is our God and we are his people,
the flock he shepherds.

Ant. Come, let us worship Jesus, whose heart was wounded for love of us.

Today, listen to the voice of the Lord:
Do not grow stubborn, as your fathers did
in the wilderness,
when at Meriba and Massah
they challenged me and provoked me,
Although they had seen all of my works.

Ant. Come, let us worship Jesus, whose heart was wounded for love of us.

Forty years I endured that generation.
I said, “They are a people whose hearts go astray
and they do not know my ways.”
So I swore in my anger,
“They shall not enter into my rest.”

Ant. Come, let us worship Jesus, whose heart was wounded for love of us.

Glory to the Father, and to the Son,
and to the Holy Spirit:
as it was in the beginning, is now,
and will be for ever. Amen.

Ant. Come, let us worship Jesus, whose heart was wounded for love of us.

  3. In 1991 I was fortunate to visit where Saint Margret Mary lies in blessed repose. Saint Margret Mary pray that we may always cherish the most precious Blood of Christ. One night in a dream I saw a host with a drop of blood on it. A gift to me from the one who loves and loves…

  4. Thank Jesus. Please reign on all your people. Please make everyone, because you can do it, believe in you, adore you, hope in you and love. Amen.
