The Assumption: Vigil

Psalm text (Ps 132:6-7, 9-10, 13-14)

Lord, go up to the place of Your rest, You and the ark of Your holiness.

Behold, we heard of it in Ephrathah;
we found it in the fields of Jaar.
Let us enter into His dwelling,
let us worship at His footstool.

may Your priests be clothed with justice;
let Your faithful ones shout merilly for joy.
For the sake of David Your servant,
reject not the plea of Your anointed.

For the Lord has chosen Zion;
He prefers her for His dwelling.
"Zion is my resting place forever;
in her will I dwell, for I prefer her."

Gospel Verse (Lk 11:28)

Blessed are they who hear the word of God and keep it.
