31st Sunday in Ordinary Time (Year C)

Psalm text (Ps 145:1-2, 8-9, 10-11, 13b-14)

I will praise Your name forever, my King and my God.

I will extol You, O my God and King;
and I will bless Your name forever and ever.
Every day will I bless You;
and I will praise Your name forever and ever.

The Lord is gracious and merciful,
slow to anger and of great kindness.
The Lord is good to all,
and compassionate toward all His works.

Let all Your works give You thanks, O Lord,
and let Your faithful ones bless You.
Let them discourse of the glory of Your kingdom
and speak of Your might.

The Lord is faithful in all His words
and holy in all His works.
The Lord lifts up all who are falling
and raises up all who are bowed down.

Gospel Verse (Jn 3:16)

God so loved the world that He gave His only Son, so that everyone who believes in Him might have eternal life.
