25th Sunday in Ordinary Time (Year B)

Psalm text (Ps 54:3-4, 5, 6-8)

The Lord upholds my life.

O God, by Your name save me,
and by Your might defend my cause.
O God, hear my prayer;
hearken to the words of my mouth.

For the haughty men have risen up against me,
the ruthless seek my life;
they set not God before their eyes.

Behold, God is my helper;
the Lord sustains my life.
Freely will I offer You sacrifice;
I will praise Your name, O Lord, for its goodness.



Gospel Verse (cf 2 Thes 2:14)

God has called us through the gospel to possess the glory of our Lord Jesus Christ.
