Lord, show us your mercy and love
Tuesday of the Sixteenth Week in Ordinary Time
Saint Sharbel Makhlūf (d. 1898)

Readings of the Day
RB: Ch 44 The Reconciliation of Those Excommunicated
Mass: Mi 7:14-15, 18-20; Resp Ps 85; Mt 12:46-50


God will cast into the depths of the sea all our sins.
We sing in today's Responsorial Psalm: Lord, show us your mercy and love. Show us Lord your kindness, and grant us your salvation. Indeed, our God 'removes guilt, pardons sins, and does not persist in anger forever, but delights rather in clemency'. Let us be grateful while reaching out to others with mercy, love, and kindness, especially those with whom we are estranged or have difficulties.
Saint Sharbel Makhlūf, pray for us. 
Let my mouth be filled with your praise, that I may sing aloud; my lips shall shout for joy, when I sing to you.(Entrance Antiphon, Mass)
