5th Sunday of Lent (Year B)

Psalm text (Ps 51:3-4, 12-13, 14-15)

Create a clean heart in me, O God.

Have mercy on me, O God, in Your goodness;
in the greatness of Your compassion wipe out my offense.
Thoroughly wash me from my guilt
and of my sin cleanse me.

A clean heart creat for me, O God,
and a steadfast spirit renew within me,
Cast me not out from Your presence,
and Your Holy Spirit take not from me.

Give me back the joy of Your salvation,
and a willing spirit sustain in me.
I will teach transgressors Your ways,
and sinners shall return to You.



Gospel Verse (Jn 12:26)

Whoever serves Me must follow Me, says the Lord; and where I am, there also will My servant be.
