5th Sunday in Ordinary Time (Year B)

Psalm text (Ps 147:1-2, 3-4, 5-6)

Praise the Lord, who heals the brokenhearted.

Praise the Lord, for He is good;
sing praise to our God, for He is gracious;
it is fitting to praise Him.
The Lord rebuilds Jerusalem;
the dispersed of Israel He gathers.

He heals the brokenhearted
and binds up their wounds.
He tells the number of the stars;
he calls each by name.

Great is our Lord and might in power;
to His wisdom there is no limit.
The Lord sustains the lowly;
the wicked He casts to the ground.


Gospel Verse (Mt 8:17)

Christ took away our infirmities and bore our diseases.
